Great Ayurvedic Experience
Dec 2019 • Solo
I had the 120 minute ayurvedic massage, sirodhara & facepack and enjoyed every moment of it. The quality of the treatments were excellent and seemed very authentic to me, and the price was very reasonable. The facilities are more basic than some other ayurvedic places (given this is a hospital) and the staff did not speak much English, but neither of these things bothered me. Overall, it was a great experience.

Poor Service
Nov 2018 • Couples
Visited late November for a full body massage, it was more an oil rub than a massage!
No benefit to me at all.
I have had Ayurvedic massage before and I can say that this was the worst.

English was spoken by the receptionist, but little by others, so made conversing difficult.

Very nice place to have genuine ayurvedic massage
Jan 2018
I spent one month in Pondichéry between Dec. 2017 and January 2018. I enjoyed the place for the quality and professionalism of the masseurs there. After tiring trips around South India, it always felt good to come back to this place to relax my painful muscles and let go all tensions. I fully recommend this Ayurvedic hospital as I'm sure I will be back there as soon as I will travel again to Pondichéry.

100 min Rejuvanate massage
Jan 2018 • Solo
I had a 4 hands massage + shirodara. I didn't like much this experience.
I've found this place without soul and I didn't feel very good there. I've found it not very clean, comfortable and nice.
During the massage and shirodara, the 2 practicionners were talking a lot together, which didn't help the relaxation.
Not recommanded !

Amazing experience with the age old Ayurvedic line of treatment. The full body rejuvenation is certainly worth every penny. Must try!!

The Best Massage Experience!Excellent massage therapists!
Dec 2017
I had taken a rejuvenating massage which had 2 therapist working on you.With a brief head massage which was soothing ,they moved on to a full body massage.It was simply excellent.The synchronisation and the massage technique was brilliant.Very therapeutic.Its followed by a steam session and they give you a fresh bar of soap and shampoo and a clean towel to wash.The wooden table where you have your massage is scrubbed after each session.Thoroughly approve the hygiene levels.My husband had three therapist working on him on a medicated massage recommended by the ayurvedic doctor(consultation is free)He loved it.Prior booking is recommended as they are extremely busy and slots booked beforehand.Definitely NOT to be missed!

Best massage I ever had
Feb 2017 • Couples
I am reviewing the Santhigiri Ayurveda and Siddha hospital which is located in Kumily, near Thekkady in Kerala. I could not find that location on Tripadvisor's listing, so reviewing it here.

There are several massage parlours in Thekkady, but I leant from a reliable source that all these places offer a commission to the drivers who bring in the tourists. I read about Santhigiri Ayurveda and Siddha hospital on the net, and someone mentioned that they provide good ayurvedic massage. They are located in a town called Kumily which is on the outskirts of Thekkady.

I took a full body massage for 60 minutes and it was the best massage I have ever had. The masseur, Gautham, was well trained and a thorough professional. He used ayurvedic oils and helped me relax. There is an in-house doctor who checks your BP before you take the massage.

What I liked was the little prayer that he chanted before beginning the massage. It is this spiritual approach and respect for the job that I found very appealing.

Expensive.

Visited the place with a couple of friends. However, the pricing is on a higher side. People are friendly and warm.

Absolutely divine experience.
Oct 2016 • Couples
Me and my husband found this place, went inside to see, at the reception they explained which and what therapy will be good as per our requirement. We got rejuvenation therapy done over here, it was absolutely divine n mesmerizing.. I came out feeling so peaceful n light headed. It's a shame that we could get this done only once. Very nice staff and greaaaat service! Worth your time , money and experience.

A Really Positive Experience.
Sep 2016 • Solo
It may seem very clinical but wow what a massage. You must not be put off by the rather forbidding entrance, walk in and make an appointment. I had the special relaxing therapy (Rs 2,000 for 1 hour 40 mins). Two men gave the body massage and then there is a head bath and massage. The place is clean and tidy and soap and shampoo are provided. Not to be missed.
