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

Having visited this resort again after more then 10 years, I was happy to find the same excellent service despite the fact that Somatheeram has expanded. Every day spent there is worth a week of holidays!

A wonderful stay at this beautiful resort. Very friendly staff, excellent massages every day, food was very good and location perfect! Our cottage was very comfortable - noise of sea was difficult to fall asleep to, but after closing shutters and wearing earplugs - a good nights sleep was had! Only criticism was the lack of cutlery and crockery in... More

This is the place you should choose if you are looking to get away from all the stress of daily routine. Rooms are very neat and so cozy that you can sleep day and night! If you are expecting tasty cuisine, you are at the wrong place. They only serve bland healthy food. Ayurvedic massages are refreshing. The beach view... More
