Time to reflect a yoga holiday

  • time-to-reflect2

A 7 nights 8 days yoga holiday with a possible ayurveda add on. We offer this holiday in two distinct destinations: purity and serenity


Situated on the shores of Lake Vembanad, purity has exceptional lake views and is entirely geared to lakeside living.

The stylish hall and dining room is replete with outstanding antiques and stunning modern art, creating a dialogue with the surrounding tropical world. The shady verandas and lovely pools offer alternative resting places on the lakeside.

Purity comprises 14 cheerful rooms & suites, all refreshingly contemporary.

Turquoise, fuchsia & red predominate with a striking contrast of whitewash and wood.

The rooms are uncluttered, fresh, light & breezy and open out onto private verandas and the garden.


serenity is a wonderful 1920’s plantation estate mansion surrounded by rubber estate and tropical spice gardens.

Thoroughly re-designed, this dream come true 1920s estate bungalow has fully retained its heritage ambience and a wonderfully remote feel to it.

With just 6 rooms, it is sublimely peaceful and the only noise is the sound of nature.

Both locations, purity & serenity, are suitable for Yoga as well as Ayurveda and can be combined in this holiday.

The transfer between both is complementary.


The healthful & creative cooking with distinct local flavors uses fresh ingredients from local markets.
