Right from the start, something didn't feel 'right' about the Carnostie, to the extent we tried to move hotels. But as it was prepaid by the travel agent, the hotel would not release us from our commitment or refund us any money. It was low season so they gave us a room upgrade, which was easy as the hotel was...

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...

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
