About Ayurvedic

AYURVEDA’ 5000-year-old medical science of India evolved from the strong cultural and philosophical background.  According to the philosophy of ancient India everything in this universe is made up of five basic elements.

These five basic elements combined in different ratios and combinations to form everything in the universe. These doshas are ‘Vatha’, ‘Pitha’, and ‘Kapha’.

On this retreat each guest will find out their own personal Dosha and work to bring them into balance.


Treatments adhere to strict Ayurveda standards. Uniform clad therapists escort the guests to the treatment rooms.

The 22 treatment rooms are airy and spacious with private patios.  A treatment chart is put up in the restaurant with a complete schedule for each guest daily.

Treatments are preceded by the doctor’s consultation.

As per Ayurveda, chitta (Malayalam for adhering to lifestyle norms as described by ancient Ayurveda texts) is to be strongly followed when on treatment. This has indeed been taken seriously here.

Lunch and dinner are an elaborate buffet that consists of 2-3 varieties of soup, broken rice gruel. A selection of salads which are a fine medley of assorted vegetables and healthy dressing form the appetizers.


The accommodation is minimal and congruous with Ayurveda. The simple accommodation in the excellent location is indeed reason for the true Ayurveda experience.
