The Greenix is a nice place to see the Kathakali dance or the exhibitions but NOT for ayurveda massage! The worst massage I had in Kerala and they were very impolite and not professional. Not recommended!

We went to the show at Greenix Village. The first half was very good (was fun to see the different ways of expressing emotions in this type of art!) but the problem is that after this first half, the organizers of the show stopped the...More
