Guest comments

“A magical experience. I feel refreshed and ready to face the world with a new glow. A million thanks.”
– Shelley, France

The staff were friendly and very helpful . . . nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were big, clean and very comfortable... loved the outdoor bathroom... great for hanging out the washing. The food couldn’t have been better and plenty of it... special orders were encouraged. Overall the choice of Isola to do these treatments was excellent. I intend to go there again.

Hotel - great people : so caring! always ready to help. GREAT FOOD - food was a highlight and Im missing it still...not one grumbly tummy and fantastic variety and flavours, all cooked with a light hand. Considering it was mostly buffet, the quality was amazing. Fresh juices, fresh fruits and desserts all very good. Delicious!

Accomodation: beautiful room/cottage. We are both very fussy as far as our accomodation goes. And we both loved the buildings. We appreciated the architecture - it was less resort style and a more traditional Kerala style. The grounds had a wild feel - rural somehow. Once again, not resort-like nor manicured.

Ayurvedic Clinic Staff & Doctors: Caring and friendly, professional but relaxed. Treatments were beautiful and healing. They felt abundant - an abundance of oil and herbs, of caring hands.

We did visit a couple the new resorts springing up nearby, and although they looked extremely beautiful and were more luxurious and resort-like, we felt Isola was more to our taste.

Isola felt like the real deal..many Indians were staying there and it wasn't like a Western cloister... although it is very isolated (Isola-ted! ) from village life.

"Wow, what a hidden paradise. Loved everything about it and can't wait to return."
