Ayurdara and Albin’s Glory
Mar 2019 • Solo
I have been three times to Ayurdara and Albin’s Glory (with my husband, alone and with my sister) and each time I have come back with a heightened sense of well-being.
Getting the treatment at Ayurdara and staying at Albin’s Glory offer a very special experience. It’s a beautiful Ayurveda retreat near Cochin in Kerala. Both the treatment offered by the team of doctors and the house in which you stay bring you to have a wonderful balanced state of body, mind and spirit. Doctor Subhash, his son and daughter -in -law (all qualified Ayurveda doctors) and his lovely wife, work together to help you find a sense of mental and physical well-being. After daily individual conversations with one of the highly professional and gentle doctors, you are assigned a series of treatments. The kindness and tenderness of the staff are healing and touching. Each treatment is closely followed up by your doctor and the results and benefits are discussed together. The sense of well-being I immediately feel comes not only from the body but also from the inside: one feels calmly energized, at ease, in peace.
The next benefit comes from living in a beautiful old house surrounded by a lush tropical garden literally floating near water. The day starts with yoga lessons taught by a friendly young man. Plentiful and delicious vegetarian food is served on a long table in the garden under a thatched roof (breakfast and lunch); the evening meal is taken inside at a communal table. I enjoy meeting the other guests who come from all over the world. You can interact as much or as little as you wish.
A major highlight is Jason, part owner and manager of the house. It’s always very much a delight to talk to him for his knowledge, patience and humour are endless. Jason will also help organize outings (last time the whole group went in several tuk tuks to watch a breathtaking religious ceremony in a nearby village).
And, finally, I should mention the very gracious staff, who all help to maintain a sense of tranquility.
I always leave with a strong sense of optimism and peace. I must also add that my backache has completely disappeared.
Many heartfelt thanks to everyone at Ayurdara and Albin’s Glory. I can’t wait to come back in March and stay for a longer period in such an idyllic place.

Serious, pleasant Ayurveda
Aug 2019 • Solo
Dr. Subhash and his wife Jancy lead a team of highly qualified doctors and therapists, with daily consultations, special massages and herbal medicines.

Most of us stay in Albin‘s Glory, the Homestay upon the Backwater, where friendly Jaison manages a team of eight cooks and helpers.

Every morning, you can assist to Kamal‘s therapeutic Yoga lesson before breakfast.

Weather permitting, breakfast and lunch are served al fresco in a thatched roof gazebo, dinner is always inside to escape the mosquitos.

A tuk-tuk or uber will bring you quickly to the ferry to Fort Cochin, or over the bridges to Ernakulam.

Of course, you can go north to the lonely beach of Kuthupally.

If you are looking for serious Ayurvedic treatment, enjoying a peaceful and green environment, with everything at a very reasonable price, I certainly can recommend this clinic and homestay in Vypin island.

Well worth the visit!
Mar 2019 • Solo
My visit to Ayurdara was absolutely a highlight of my time in Cochin. It is located in a very peaceful setting on Vypin Island (easily accessible by ferry from Ft. Cochin). They are warm and welcoming and I had the most incredibly Ayurvedic massage. I regret that I didn't have more time here. I will definitely visit again on a future trip to the area.

Very sad to leave
Jan 2019 • Couples
Dr Subhash, Jancy and the family at ayurdara make you feel cared for the moment you step through the door.

We combined 10 days of Ayurveda treatment with Dr Subhash with staying at Albins Glory.

The care from the staff at Ayurdara and the food and staff at Albins made our treatment stay very special and memorable. We we very sad to leave.

We were picked up every day in a tuk tuk to go for treatment to the clinic which is a short trip away. Every day you have a consultation prior to your treatment. Treatment is prescribed Ayurvedic massarge with 2 therapists. The doctors prescribe Ayurvedic medicine for the duration which you usually take after every meal.

We met some fantastic people at Albins who have been coming back to see Dr Subhash every year for 10 years from Germany. The proof is right here.

We will definitely come back. This is a hidden gem.

Thank you Dr Subhash, Jancy, the Family and Jason at Albins for making our stay so memorable.

tailored to your needs and authentic
Oct 2018 • Solo
It was my first Ayurveda experience and I was looking for an authentic kur. This here would highly recommended from a good Indian friend who is very familiar with it. And what I mostly liked was that they really vote on your needs! You have everyday first a consultation how you feel and after the treatment. You get picked up with a tuktuk to the center and the guesthouse where you stay is by the lake, calm located and the ladies prepare awesome food! not what westerns usually like, maybe too much sugar. No authentic, just healthy food and you get full on a good way. I have water retention on my leg and noticed a big change day by day. At the end you get instructions for home, that you can easy continue. It's a family business and it's such a lovely family. I like to come back.

Radical change in my condition
Oct 2018
Affected by a neurodegenerative disease since 14 years I had no choice but to deal with this terrible disease with the usual allopathic treatment, namely to take more and more drugs and to suffer more and more invasive side effects.
After a 3-weeks cure in Ayurdara I regained autonomy I had lost, I found back fine motor skills and flexibility of my movements, while reducing allopathic drugs by half. It's a big victory over the disease!
The long flight to go was a hard time for me, on the return everything was easy.
I highly recommend Ayurdara center for anyone who needs to relax or to cure whatever the nature of the problem is. Competence, medical professionalism and attention are at the rendez-vous in both places Ayurdara and Albin's Glory the guest house.
I will be back in 6 months.
Thank you and all my warm friendship !!

Authentic & effective ayurvedic treatment - highly recommended
Oct 2017 • Solo
If you are looking for a fancy, posh & glittery ayurvedic retreat, keep loooking. Instead, if you are interested in professional, down-to-earth and effective ayurvedic treatment, you might have found what you need.

Ayurdara is run by a highly commited practicioner who will see you every day before treatment. By his wife who is the master general when it comes to taking care logistic aspects of your stay. And by a small team of trained stufff who command the wide variety of ayuvedic treatments with a smile.

In total, my treatment lasted for three weeks - and even though initially I thought 21 days of vegan food, early sleep, no alcohol, coffee and tea might be a little long, eventually I was sad to leave What made the trick was the warm, family like athmosphere and the professionalism which is seldom in commercially run places. Or, to put it differently: What I got here was the professionalism of an ayuvedic hospital combined with the charme & standard of a homestay. Highly recommended!
