Hotel details

Over 30 years’ experience plus one of the first Ayurveda resorts in the world. If you’re looking for authentic, traditional Ayurveda, Somatheeram Ayurveda Resort is the place for you.

Where you are going...
The southern Indian province of Kerala is the birthplace of Ayurveda. Hence the perfect place for an Ayurveda retreat. What’s more, Somatheeram’s location, on the sandy beach of the town of Kovalam in a tropical garden, makes this a wonderfully relaxing and beautiful spot. Trivandrum airport: approx. 45-minute drive

Why you’ll love it...
Somatheeram is a true Ayurveda resort. With an Ayurveda treatment centre and on-site research centre, you can expect real professionalism here. But that isn’t the only thing. The beach, sea, palm trees, garden and cottages also give the resort a relaxed holiday feel. Somatheeram Ayurveda Resort is incidentally the big sister of nearby Manaltheeram Resort. The finer details aside, the two are similar. The main difference is that Somatheeram is slightly more spaciously laid out.

Beste team,

Eventjes om jullie te laten weten dat de ayurveda reis naar Kerala in de Somatheraam SCHITTEREND en VERRIJKEND was, pure verwennerij, vriendelijk personeel, prima artsen en therapeuten, en de ligging een stukje "garden of eden".
Bedankt, zal zeker publiciteit voor jullie maken!
