This is an excellent choice for whoever wants an ayurveda treament with full accomodation in Kerala. The resort is typically tropical, one is immersed in green, it's almost like being in a botanical garden because all the plants and trees are labelled. I found the staff and service of a good standard, everyone smiling and helpful. Being isolated, you are... More

We were overwhelmed by the online pictures and reviews about Somatheeram and also got a good deal on a busy weekend of 15th Aug. As the saying goes "All that glitters is not gold", Somatheeram Ayurveda Resort is a trap for customers amidst a beautiful location overlooking the Chowara beach. The only point it scores is the location advantage and... More

After some less than luxurious as advertised properties, it was an anxious lead up to our visit to Somatheeram. All fears were allayed starting with the seamless pick up at Tiravandrum Railway station at 7am; arriving and checking in in a light pre-monsoon, cooling rain; the sound, sight and smell of the salty ocean; the light, airy, clean bungalow with...

Came back home feeling rejuvenated, goal accomplished. Wanted to stay on forever, the pace of life suited me just fine, did not miss Mr Television, at all :) My only request was that the Ayurveda patients are told in advance that they have to pay for any medicines that are prescribed to be taken away after the treatment, as this...

One of our friends recommended us to come to this wonderful Ayurveda treatment resort, where she had staed for a "rejuvenation therapy" and was delighted with the experience. This has been one of the best recommendations we have ever received, as we decided to go for a 30-day "slimming/rejuvenation" program last March, and found that it was indeed wonderful. The... More

This is an authentic Ayurvedic resort with great service, comfortable cottages by the ocean, beautiful and relaxing scenery, excellent food and amazing massage therapy.
