Travellers' Choice
Somatheeram Ayurvedic Health Resort is situated on the picturesque Malabar Coast, providing a stunning view over the infinite sandy beach. The guests live far away from mass tourism in the middle of a large tropical garden in one of 70 south Indian cottages and houses. Being the first resort to have made Ayurvedic teachings well-known beyond India’s borders, Somatheeram’s aspiration was to provide Ayurveda, yoga and meditation in a peaceful and captivating setting, supported by an Ayurvedic nutrition. For 30 years now, Somatheeram is THE Ayurvedic centre that adopts this holistic approach and at the same time reflects India’s culture and beauty. Somatheeram is the undisputed No. 1 in its field. So far, it has been awarded ten times as “The Best Ayurvedic Centre” and has received the “National Tourism Award” three times already and spearheads all its competitors.

We wanted to have a complete switch off, just massages and yoga and great vegetarian food. We weren't expecting 5 star facilities so our expectations were very realistic. I am pleased to say our expectations were pretty much 100% met, the rooms and everything about Somatheeram were just ideal, not 5 star but everything was there that we needed. I would say more "rustic" than luxury, nevertheless absolutely great. Our only criticism was the food which we found very "samey" night after night. This was a shame as we'd heard how amazing the food is in Kerala. There was loads of choice (probably 6 curries to choose from every meal) but it all sort of tasted the same. Massages were very different but really fabulous. All in all was a great experience and we'd definitely recommend it. The team at Somatheeram were always helpful.

I had an excellent experience at Somatheeram. Daily massage with the same therapist, wonderful daily yoga and breathing practices with some good teachers. Food was tasty and fresh. I had a standard cottage which with was comfortable, but it did not have the best view, so i may upgrade on my next visit. The level of English of my Doctors were not the best, but given i was mainly there for the massage rather than a complex illness, it didn't really matter. other doctors had excellent level of English. I did see the physiotherapist for a shoulder problem and he really helped with deep safe hand work which hand work i can't find in London. no smoking and no alcohol on the premises.

Somatheeram was exactly what I needed. It was the perfect combination of delicious, healthy food, beautiful environment, friendly people, relaxing treatments, meditation, and yoga. You can tell how genuinely happy the staff are—they love their job and really care about you having a good experience. They will take good care of you. It gave me the reset I needed for my health both mentally and physically. I highly recommend!

What a fantastic place Somatheeram is. We in the western world don't know this medical holistic approach. It is like a preventive clinic with considerable knowledge of chronic diseases and natural medicine. It was a real complete treatment integrated approach on food /doctor consult / medicine / therapy / yoga and relaxing at the pool of beach. I loves Somatheeram and will be happy to return one day.

Somatheeram really is Ayurvedic heaven! A beautiful location, attentive doctors, incredible therapists, not to mention the yoga, meditation, and kind, helpful staff. You want for nothing here and it leaves you feeling restored. The food choice and quality is outstanding. I’m so glad I came and very much hope to return!

I was recommended Somatheeram by a friend who has been there for 12 years. After having been there myself, I experienced the great benefits that their holistic medical approach provides. I feel strengthened in body and soul, and have increased strength for everyday life. This feels like paradise on earth and I look forward to going there again. All the staff are amazing and professional who give everything to build your health and make you feel good.

We had a very relaxing, detoxing and healthy time at the Somatheeram Resort. If you’re looking for a place where you hide from daily stress and recover strength this is the place. They take traditional Ayurveda really serious, you see the doctor every day and the right treatments for your needs a chosen. Try it, it helps! The resort is not new but the rooms are well equipped and the staff is very nice.

Kerala is god's country and Somatheeram Ayurvedic is right on the beach near Kovalam beach. You could sit all day on the beach or in your room and watch the waves pound the shores. The beach is beautiful and depending on the time of the year you might be able to swim in the water if it is not monsoon season. The facility has all natural elements for folks who want to get away from busy life and find peace of mind and relax. I would recommend this place to people who want to disconnect and connect with inner self. It's hard to disconnect for 15 days, 21 days so bring your laptop or other devices you need to connect with rest of the world but use it wisely. The Ayurvedic massage with different treatment was refreshing and very relaxing so a thank you to the masseuse. Ayurveda Health Resort is a wonderful place to relax and unwind, surrounded by palm trees and an amazing garden, the ocean a few footsteps away. My biggest compliment goes to the staff itself; everyone is unbelievably friendly and gives you a smile. Big compliments to the restaurant staff who serve you delicious food during your stay at Soma. The staff at the reception who help you with all the travel arrangements to airport, currency exchanges and helped with any questions concerning travel plans. The great and smiling gate keepers being there and making us feel extra safe at nighttime. The lifeguard at the beach helping with Chair, Umbrella and towels on daily basis and watching you not get in trouble with big waves while you take a dip in the sea. Somatheeram also has daily Yoga classes and in fact I would advertise this heavily in USA for folks who want to get trained in Yoga and find peace from daily hustle of life in USA. Bundled offers for this resort is the way to go and book in advance to get the best rates which includes stay, treatment and food. I would visit this place again in future when I have time. I know friends who come here from France, Germany and Netherlands every year for 15-28 days. This is the best vacation you can have with your loved ones if you want to relax, get massage and do Yoga.
