    " Ive had an extremely relaxed and rejuvenating stay at Kairalis Ayurvedic Healing Village in Kerala. The resort is imaginatively designed and beautifully landscaped. It reflects the ethos and ambience of Gods Own Country. The Ayurvedic Spa is of a very high quality and I have received genuine and authentic treatment, as well as personal care and attention from Dr. Ramachandran. This is not merely a resort; it is a destination advocating a new way of life. It needs to be marketed as a unique spiritual destination. I wish Kairali and its staff all the best and a bright future. "
