This small, homey resort south of Kovalam has specialized in ayurvedic treatment since 1997. Rooms in the marble-floor main building are simply furnished and spotless; some have balconies overlooking a coconut grove. There are also a few thatch-roof cottages, some with open-air bathrooms. The beach is a short walk away, but Ideal focuses more on Indian arts and culture than on fun in the sun; it offers study programs in yoga and ayurveda, among other healing treatments.
A recent major upgrade added 15 rooms overlooking a new swimming pool, and a second ayurvedic center.

Stayed 3 nights in Ideal Ayurvedic Resort with family in March 2014. We booked resort online through RPC Holidays. The resort is located near Chowara beach on the beautiful Malabar coastline of Kerala. The rooms are large, clean and perfect for a family. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The food is good. The massage is very relaxing and satisfying, exactly what I needed for my vacation. A big thank you to RPC Holidays for everything. Overall,
recommended for excellent experience away from rush and hustle bustle life.
