Guest Reviews


I had the opportunity to visit Munkudil in October this year.
Munkudil is a green architecture situated in Gods own country Kerala, South India. The property lies in between a slow flowing river and a green loved filled forest. Beyond the beauty of the place the service received was worth mentioning. The staff showed the heart warming language of Indian culture. I was told that there was a recent change in the management. Well I believe the new management has definitely made me happy.

I woke up in the morning awaited by a mind relaxing yoga class followed by delicious vegetarian Indian breakfast. I also enjoyed the Ayurvedic detox massages at the spa which was supervised by the resident doctor.

The highlight of the trip was when we witnessed the beautiful view of elephant family drinking water from the river bright and early in the morning. Wildlife watching right from the balcony was kind of never before experience.
Good detox and relaxing experience overall, would come back any time.

A Blissful Experience

Munkudil Ayurveda- Yoga retreat is a magical and holistic piece of traditional Indian architecture.
Complete ecofriendly and organic atmosphere. Lots of medicinal plants around. Loved the vibe there, the people, food, Yoga, Ayurveda, Meditation, etc

Ayurvedic massage was exellent. Food is sooo yummi and served always with a smile. Everything is done with maximum of care, attention and mindfullness from each and everyone working in Munkudil. Im really pleased as I was leaving with my skin completely toned and noticed the weight loss which both were my concerns. I explained to the doctor.that I’m already excited about coming next year. Thankyou Munkudil

During my 10 days stay I realized with the exquisite guidance, how simple life can be.There was also a bird watching tour which was excellent information about local and migratory birds and their habitat. I was given binoculars to watch wildlife from my balcony space.

They mentioned me about a recent management and name change which reduced the number of reviews for the place. I am sure you won’t be disappointed and hightly recommended if anyone need to relax in the midst of nature with the sounds of birds.

Thanks aagin to the whole team and see you soon again.

A little piece of paradise

I am just coming to the end of a six night stay at Munkudil, an Ayurveda Yoga retreat in a rural part of Kerala, South India. The environment here is sublime. The entire place is founded on ecological principles, as well as being incredibly beautiful and, most unusually for India, very peaceful.

The climate here is warm and tropical, but there is generally a gentle breeze that comes across the river to cool us. Elephants often visit the river to bathe and I was fortunate enough to see some whilst I was here. The gardens here are packed with healing herbs, there are three bee hives (the honey is used in the Ayurvedic medicines), cows (whose milk is also used in ghee and medicines) and beautiful Yoga Ayurveda inspired artwork through the whole house and grounds.

Each day begins with a Yoga practice with Yogi Hari. The Yoga here is suitable for everyone, so all are welcome to join in this holistic practice, which is offered daily at 730am and 5pm. Following Yoga we enjoy a delicious traditional Kerala breakfast. This is followed by free time or a fabulous Ayurvedic treatment, usually massage focused but it can be other things too!

In Ayurveda lunch is the main meal of the day, and a hearty lunch is enjoyed here daily at 1pm.The afternoon allows time to walk along the riverside, to relax, to enjoy more Ayurvedic treatment or to read and rest, before the afternoon Yoga session. In the evening a light supper is served, usually vegetables and chapati or similar. Those who have seen the Ayurvedic doctor also have herbal medicines to take at each mealtime. And so then we retire to bed!
