An “Idyllic Ayurveda Spa Retreat”: Trail Stained Fingers Reviews Mekosha

We’ve had a number of guests stay with us over the past month. Among these, we were lucky to host Ankita Sharma, a travel blogger who runs the page Trail Stained Fingers. Ankita and her husband, Mohit, have traversed the globe through some amazing experiences as India, East Asia, and Europe, with Germany in particular. Further, she blogs about nuances of travel writing itself. Only recently, however, did she cover her visit to Mekosha Ayurveda Spa Suits Retreat.

Ankita says, “The pristine Varkala Beach was our first and only introduction to Kerala, a pioneering travel destination in India. That was over five years ago. Today, however, Ayurvedic retreats have mushroomed all over God’s own country. In fact, every three to five star hotel boasts of Ayurvedic massages.

In this context, the newly opened Mekosha stands in a space of its own. It pays close attention to self-pampering, in a surrounding of a trees, rivers, and birds. Further, our stay enables us to savour the sunset at Varkala beach once again.”

An Extract from the Trail Stained Fingers Blog

In her blog post, Ankita writes: “Mekosha is the ideal place for rejuvenation, relaxation, and reflection. Therefore, we’d recommend this resort for senior citizens, those suffering from chronic ailments and anyone in need of a break. Moreover, we especially loved the hour-long sojourn along Attigal River in a motorboat. Here, we marvelled at reclining coconut trees, round kutta boats and myriad birds including the flaming red Kerala eagle. Subsequently, we cherished the conversations and exchanges we had with the other guests, including a sweet old couple from the UK and the quiet afternoon walks along the riverside path.

We arrived post sundown at the Trivandrum airport. Then it took us an hour-long drive to arrive at Mekosha. After that, we enjoyed a candle light dinner (despite already being stuffed with evening snacks by Air India!).

Mekosha’s F&B manager and chef, Anoob, provided us idiyappam (coiled rice noodles) with vegetable curry and payasam. I was amazed at how low-fat the food seemed, and yet so fresh and tasty. In fact, it was just like home food, and the ideal evening meal. In this manner, Mekosha breaks through the narrative of ‘good health’ as being something monotonous or tasteless.”
