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.

I visited Somatheeram for the second time in September 2021, when it had just reopened after a year of lockdown. My experience was 5 star worthy. The hospitality and treatments and the precautions taken by the staff during these Covid times are all exceptionally praise worthy.

The two weeks treatment and stay at Somatheeram was one of our best experiences . It is close to the sea with excellent view and lovely landscaping surrounded by indigenous fruit and flowering plants . The Ayurvedic rejuvenation treatment is great ; the therapists are professional and put in their best .All the staff particularly the front office staff are caring and helpful. Overall a beautiful calming experience which left us rejuvenated and wanting to go back again

The experience of our stay here was pure bliss. Everything from the airport pickup to airport dropoff was nothing short of perfect. Our driver, Doctor, Therapists, Receptionists, chefs, servers, security guards, housekeeping staff, and each and every person we interacted with greeted us with so much warmth and affection. The views from our room were also just surreal - highly recommend the beach view villa

In these COVID challenging times, my wife and I were a little apprehensive about travelling to Kerala from Mumbai and more so about our 6N/7D stay at the resort. However, upon arrival at the resort, all our fears were dispelled by excellent arrangements there. Right from the start of booking the resort till we were dropped back at the Trivandrum airport, all was seamlessly arranged with utmost safety and precautions. The resort is located on a small hill right on the Kovalam/Kottukal beach. The best part starts with insistence of the resort management on customers having atleast negative Rapid Antigen Test report upon arrival, which is an excellent safety step not only for the customers but also the resort staff. Mr. Sarath NS from their marketing department was extremely co-operative and responsive to all our requests from the time of first interaction till the end of our stay there. We were picked up from the airport in time and upon our arrival at the resort, we did not ever get a feeling that the world is facing such torrid time outside. Such was this tranquil and relaxing feeling inside the resort. We were welcomed with aarti, garlands and tender coconut water. The moment you enter the resort, you get refreshing, rejuvenating and tranquil vibes straightaway. Mr. Jishnu at the reception was always available and very receptive to our needs. The Ayurvedic consultation was very good, the therapies were prescribed as per our needs and the therapists Mr. Reji Verghese, Mr. Saji, Mr. Anish and Ms. Ajitha were simply superb and seasoned in carrying out their therapy assignments. Since we had not gone there with any ailments or for special treatments, we were provided with food of our choice. At the restaurant, Mr. Bobby and Mr. Arkesh were simply customer friendly, ever ready to serve and make you food-happy. Only once we ventured out of the resort to visit Kanyakumari and all arrangements were provided by the resort in a very smooth manner. We stayed in a deluxe cottage which was quite spacious and equipped with all amenities therein. These cottages are also provided with inside sitting patios and on one side, they open to open air balconies facing the sea. The cottages have spacious bathrooms, had constant hot and cold water, air conditioning, sufficient lighting, comfortable double bed, kettle, herbal tea provisions, a small safety locker and plenty of drinking water. Our each day started with yoga sessions (optional) conducted by seasoned 74 year old, very soft spoken and very flexible guru - Mr. James. Post refreshing yoga session and after breakfast everyday, the doctors would have consultations with us followed by 2-hour massage therapy. At the end of the therapy sessions, we were provided with tender coconut water to quench our thirst and refresh us. The beach is directly and easily accessible from the resort itself and we went for long walks every evening there. Safety for individual travelers is not an issue at all - be it a male or female and one never feels insecure inside the resort or about the staff there. Before Covid times, all resorts in Kovalam which offer ayurvedic treatments used to be full with foreign tourist and rates used to be very high. But currently, in absence of these foreigners, this is the right time for Indian travelers to book your stay at this resort since very rock bottom rates are offered online/offline. Upon return to Mumbai and after testing negative for RTPCR, we want to state that one must visit this resort atleast once to experience their hospitality and for having rejuvenating and relaxing time there. If we have to point out any drawbacks during our stay there, then it would be a weak Wi-Fi connection and absence of TV (possibly intentional) in the room. Based on our excellent experience, we would rate 5 on 5 for this resort! Keep up the excellent work guys! You will see us soon on repeat trips!
