We have just returned from a nine day visit to Carnoustie. I think it was a small piece of Paradise. It is set in a truly wonderful garden with thatched cottages, which are the accommodation and are very beautifully appointed, and a pleasure to stay in. Carnoustie is definitely a Wellness centre with an Ayurveda treatment centre. You can take...

We were at this marvellous resort for just over a week and we came back thoroughly refreshed and relaxed, as well as a few kilos lighter. This is chiefly a wellness resort, set in beautifully tendered grounds, where the uncommon caring and kindness of the staff complements the peaceful surroundings, resulting in a totally stress-free holiday. Many visitors were there...

I have just recently been at this resort and was amazed by the great service of all of the people there and especially the doctors. I underwent the treatment with integrated medicine by Dr. Ahmed Ali, as I was suffering from back pain and a bended spine. Despite only limited time (5 days), through his extreme commitment and excellent qualities,...

We stayed at Carnoustie for 5 nights and enjoyed both the Mallika Villa and Punag Villa. The staff make the experience that much more special as they are all so welcoming and attentive. Whenever we would make a request to visit a local site they were more than happy to arrange transport and often a guide to accompany you. They...

Carnoustie is a lovely place to relax and unwind, and really get away from it all. The spa and ayurvedic treatments are very good (although, you will pay close to western prices), the food is excellent, and the staff are so sweet and helpful. The private villas are lovely and private, and we really enjoying the coconut grove / beach...

Had a wonderful holiday at Carnoustie resort with a friend as we needed to destress. We took a package which included airport transfers, ayurvedic treatments, all meals (we chose vegetarian ayurvedic meals but there is a wide choice) and boat trip. Morning yoga with visiting guru and sunset yoga with the resident guru were inspiring and highlights of the day....

It's complicated to get there, it's far from everything and it's pricy... but once you're there, you see it's more than worth! We stayed there for five days and enjoyed it to the fullest... the paradisiac beach, the excellent restaurant and spa as well as the lovely villas.

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
