"After spending four weeks touring Rajasthan and South India, we decided to re-boot with six nights at this resort south of Kovalam in Kerala. This is not a North American spa with the temperature/humidity feeling like 40 during the day and 28 at night, our cottage had no a/c, no TV, the restaurant did not serve alcohol, and served mostly vegetarian food. There was a large group from Russia who tended to dominate everywhere, and most of the other guests were from Germany. That said, most were there for extensive Ayurvedic treatments. We enjoyed massages (90 minutes for $35), a wonderful infinity pool and took long walks along the wonderful beach. As long as you're able to 'chill', you'll love this place!"

"An incredible experience to rejuvenate yourself in body and mind. It is like being in a parallel world, where everything is going along with the flow of nature. All of the staff are extremely kind, ready to help, to pamper yourself and make you feel the universal love and energy that are all around us. Amazing ayurvedic treatment, diet, and food suggestion based on your dosha, lovely food with a lot of choices, guided meditation, and yoga on a platform where you can hear the ocean waves. You must try it to believe it! Suggested at every age. I stayed for only 6 days and they allowed me to make the rejuvenation package. It was great, but try to stay at least 7 days! Next time I will definitely go for the 14 days package!"

"After 5 days traveling in several cities in Kerala (Kochin, Tekkady, etc), I stayed my last two days in Kerala in Somatheeram. I was surprised that this hotel has such a great service, beautiful beach resort with reasonable price. As only short time there, I did not try their signature Ayurveda package but did enjoy their daily Ayurveda service. The food is great."
