Harivihar is a gem in a charming neighbourhood of Calicut. Make no mistakes, it is a homestay facility. Don't expect room service, pillow mints, 24-hour coffee shop and the other things that you would take for granted in a hotel or a resort. Harivihar is elegantly restored in a minimalistic style. The owners and staff maintain it impeccably and ensure...

Very peaceful, with generous spaces and gardens. Nice simple food, which we thought went well with the general ayurvedic approach. It is served in a beautiful dining room, with view and verandah looking across green lawns, with a large historic tank. There is a semi-internal well beside this diningroom. The whole place has great quality, and the staff are attentive...

We enjoyed for several days the extraordinary spirit and atmosphere of this place. The old family mansion has been renovated by Dr. Srikumar and his wife with great taste and love for the detail. You enter and you are in a different world! The aryuvedic cuisine is excellent. Yoga sessions are offered each morning. Dr. Srikumar and his wife are...

Since our first visit to Harivihar, we have become regulars here. This was our 6th visit to Harivihar. We love the ambience of the place. The large, well kept rooms and bathrooms are always very well maintained with high levels of cleanliness and hygiene. This time we were treated to an excellent fare of vegetarian treats by a new chef....

What a beautiful surprised to find Harivihar in our way to Kerala. We missed it so much. The place is great, furnished with style and taste; the food is just great, veggie and delicious, prepared with love by the gifted cook; the rooms are confortable and the treatments are deep and useful. And above all, we were welcomed by so...

Stayed 9 days for ayurvedic treatment. It's done by non hotel team from local ayurvedic hospital. It's not the best I had but acceptable. There no coordination with the hotel cook, so that one cannot feel the real benefits. House and garden are nice, the room rather basic for the price. Got the only room with air conditioning, to keep...

The property itself is beautiful. It was an old school - I believe - and has been completely restored and upgraded. However, our bed was like sleeping on a concrete block - absolutely no give in the mattress. I like a firm bed but this was ridiculous. The room was very basic with little storage or amenities and the bathroom...

I realise that it would be naive to expect a boutique hotel experience in a homestay that specialises in aurevedic treatments. But from previous TripAdvisor reviews my hopes were that we would enjoy a tranquil night with good food in a beautiful setting. The food was very good and clearly prepared by people who care. The rooms however were somewhat...

Spent 3 glorious days here on the slightly shortened introduction to Ayurveda programme and loved every minute of it. It was a last minute decision to go and was on a recommendation from a traveller we met in Kannur who told us that he found the food alone to be transforming! So we had to give it a go and...
