We found Carnoustie delightfully tranquil and very good for relaxing in and forgetting about life's troubles for a while. You can take Yoga and Ayurvedic treatments very seriously here and we met folks who had been several times before and come back for more. However it's an equally beautiful beach resort, with a picture perfect, palm-tree fringed beach with the...

We had a de-luxe villa in this wonderful hotel - all the rooms are thatched 'villas', detached with big verandas with sunbeds, table and chairs and a lily pond. We had a large room with an enormous and beautiful bathroom. We lounged on the terrace in the mornings and then moved to the swimming pool which is enormous, surrounded by...

I stayed at this wonderful resort at the end of a two-week holiday in India. It was just the right amount of luxury and relaxation I needed. The villas were beautiful and so well appointed. The food was delicious and the staff couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. The treatments in the spa were fantastic also. I can't recommend...

I can not think of anything bad at all to say about Carnoustie! It is an amazing place. The garden is beautifull and full of birds, summerbirds, squirrels and even mongoose. The villas - we had a lovely Akund Villa with an amazing view through the park towards the beach - are "to die for". Wifi works perfect. The food...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Carnoustie Ayurveda & Wellness Resort, situated at the Marari beach close to the Alappuzha backwaters, comprises of 40 luxury villas, a traditional Ayurveda Spa, Two Backwater Suite in Muhamma, One Two Bedroom House Boat and a Sailing Club. The villas are designed to reduce energy and water consumption as well as minimize the use of exhaustible materials. The eco-friendly resort ensures that we use materials such as jute, bamboo, recycled cardboard instead of wood, reprocessed plastic and scrap wood. While at the resort, travellers can take lake/ backwater tours to gaze at the gorgeous paddy fields of Alapphuza, try out the early-morning yoga sessions, unwind at the beach, relax at the spa, enjoy performances by local traditional dancers and Kerala’s range of percussion music, try their hand at night fishing, cycle around villages or sail the backwaters and learn a bit of archery. ... more   less
