I learned about Sarovaram from an internet review. I was looking for a place where I could be introduced to Ayurveda treatments. I contacted Sarovaram and Dr. Kiran explained clearly the services, facilities, and about the specific services I was requesting.
I explained that my available time was less than a week, he told me that a Panchakarma treatment was not an option as it requires more time. At any rate, he set expectations clearly and I decided to go there and spend the few days I had available. In hindsight, I am very glad I made this decision.
I was delighted with the attentive and able personnel. The treatments were customized for me with sessions in the morning and afternoon. This allowed me to take advantage of the time available.
The place is paradisiacal, calm, no luxuries. The cabins are comfortable, clean. I was apprehensive about the lack of A/C, but that was never an issue. The fans were more than enough to keep me comfortable. The grounds are well kept and in communion with nature. I could contemplate the sun rising in the morning over the lake and the sunset in the afternoon by waking a few steps away from the compound. The grounds are beautiful and full of birds, flowers, plants, and even an eagle who I watched every afternoon from my cabin as it came to drink water from a bird fountain.
The food is prepared on premises, fresh, delicious, and varied. The staff is helpful, warmth, and efficient.
The staff was always helpful, very nice, friendly, and professional. Dr Kiran was especially helpful, patient, and the program he prepared for me was very good. He made me feel at home.
Costs were reasonable. No surprises. I was picked up at the airport. Transportation in boat was arranged to visit nearby villages in my spare time.
I am very glad I found Sarovaram and have no hesitation recommending the Center.
