Editor's Review

The Thapovan Heritage Home has a peaceful atmosphere and it provides great views of the sea and the garden. Thr rooms are neat, built with traditional-design. But they do not provide much luxury. The highlight of the resort is the Ayurvedic treatments. They are very relaxing. The food at the restaurant is not great and you even have wait a while before your food arrives at the table. The resort is not too close to any other important places. The activites offered at the resort help you to experience local tradition.
