A wonderful retreat and it is like being in paradise. A get away from the busy city life and enjoy the peace and quietness. A place for Ayurveda, Meditation, Yoga and excursions in the south of India. Beautiful beach and swimming pool, excellent food. A place for "looking within yourself" and and enjoying the beauty of nature.

The welcoming sound of Bethsaida, after a one-day road stretch from Tamil Nadu into Kerala, was the roaring blast of a wave, crashing onto the beach - really impressing, and at the same time exciting too. The location is just superb. Over the years, the development of this extremely nice Ayurveda centre blended in the nature and spread across the...

We stayed 1 week. The location at the beach is nice. However, also on this beach, like on every beach in India, local boys try to take fotos of western women in beachwear - I had to chase that guy away myself - no reaction from the Bethsaida staff on the beach! The Ayurveda consultation and treatments are very good,...

We stayed at this idyllic retreat for 4 days and enjoyed being pampered in every sense: wonderful Ayurvedic massages; gorgeous gardens with beautiful plants and flowers; clean beach and warm Arabian Sea; all topped off with tasty vegetarian food. The room was cool and comfortable, and the staff couldn't have been more welcoming or friendly. This is an alcohol free...

My wife and I spent a week at Bethsaida. Everything was perfect from the airport pickup to the Ayurvedic treatments to the comfortable rooms, the private beach and the huge swimming pools. Service and meals were spectacular. Daily yoga to the sound of local fishermen hauling in their nets was a highlight. You will never get better massages anywhere on...

We've been doing Ayurveda every year for 11 years. We've been in many different resorts in Kerala and also in Tamil Nadu. Bethsaida is really the best resort in many aspects. It has the most beautiful housing area. Also during low season the doctors take more time to take care of you and the therapists do their job well and...

Rooms were nice. The staff there were friendly and helpful. They also had a nice library, 2 swimming pools and an amazing restaurant with delicious food. The place is clean and well managed. Sometimes in the night, they had cultural performances also.

Very good and strong ayurveda. With high qualify doctors. Accommodation is quite simple, but it's doesn't matter if you are coming for treatment here. Bethsaida was build by chatolic family in traditional style and you even can find chapel there. Cosy and pretty!
