We stayed there upon recommendation of a travel agent and also took some ayurvedic treatment. After reading the reviews here, a lot of them, positive and negative are true. It is a beautiful place with luscious landscaping and very friendly and good service. Part of the landscape is that it's located ob a slope down to the beach. We had... More

Location is nice, room was ok (the more reasonable ones were not available when we booked, had to stay in Kerala house). Would rather have stayed in smaller cottage with sitting area. We were at the back portion of a house, no place to sit and enjoy the garden. Ayurveda DODGY at best. The "doctors" were very unattentive, couldn't find... More

The grounds and property of this place are quite beautiful and the food is also very good. Be warned how ever this is not a proper Ayurvedic clinic. The doctors could really care less about whats going on for you. You fill out a paper check list that looks like it was printed off in 1982 and the doctors at... More

The ayurvedic treatment felt good, but my therapist did not have any day off to rest during 21 days in a raw!!! (She never complained about it, but for me, it's not human). Treatment rooms & bathrooms are terrible & rustic. It's so old that it seems very dirty. The bungalow is very small - you can't do anything in... More

We were here for our honeymoon and we regretted not staying there for long. Very well located, excellent service, friendly staff and I really loved the food here. My wife loved the ayurveda treatments there.

The place is well maintained and good location if you want to spend quiet time in one resort near the ocean. I would say each cottage is too close to other. The Ayurvedic treatments are just ok and nothing fantastic however the foods are tasty and provide each Dosha foods which is not usual in the normal hotel.

If it's vegetarian food or Yoga/Meditation you are looking for then this place is very good for this. However the Ayurvedic Health did not work for us, in Fact we are still recovering from its bad effects. I developed a rash all over my body from the medicine after 3 days there which was not cured or relieved until I... More

Somatheeram is a very difficult resort to evaluate. It is more a “cure” than a holiday. The clientele is mainly but not exclusively German and many guests had been there up to 17 times. Clearly this place has a following of people who love it. We also heard stories of great cures for things that were not easily rectified –... More
