Don’t believe all you read …..
Summary :- Extremely noisy due to music from an adjacent restaurant (till past midnight), plus people partying till well after midnight.
Room clean, bed comfortable …. but bitten to death by bedbugs from seat and bed. This was quickly dealt with by helpful staff.
Decor of bedrooms and hotel is sparse and a bit rough - 3500 Rs per night would be a reasonable price for the room (I actually paid much more)
My biggest criticism is the quality of Ayurvedic care. The doctor talks a good talk but falls short in actual delivery. On my first days I had massage with a heated cloth pad - the pad had been used so much that its contact area was covered in a coating of thick burnt carbon, and this carbon layer went inside my skin pores covering them in black spots. When I pointed this out to the doctor she told the masseur (who was actually very good) to change the pad. Ayurveda this is NOT !!
After staying 6 days decided I had to leave - very grateful that the doctor reimbursed me for 2 days stay.

I have a video of the noise - plus a photograph of the many bedbugs.

My advice - don’t believe all you read in reviews….

Dear Kevin This is the first negative review received in my 13 years of ayurveda practice, that clearly means we are always deliver a tremendous effort to serve the people who approach us. Even if it’s a negative review I want to address it from my side. From the early beginning of your treatments you were hesitating to value we doctors opinion to deliver you the treatments as you had some kind of disbelief in our opinion about the treatments you want to recieve. As it’s a case of inflammatory arthritis, oil massages are not supposed to be offered in the beginning and we choosed to offer you dry anti inflammatory herbal bag treatments to relieve the amatva(cellular toxicity) and unfortunately you were not co operated with us to proceed with the same and you rashly demanded for the oil massages from us which you suppose to believe is best for you. But again and again we instructed you that the massages are not going to help you and still you insisted to recieve the oil massages. And sue you haven’t received much improvement with the oil massages you taken. The outcome is that you haven’t received the result according to your expectations. The fact is you never listen to our advices to follow during the time of the treatments and that given no expected results. You please can clarify the point which I have mentioned above with an expert ayurveda doctor. I mean in an inflammatory arthritis condition whether we choose anti inflammatory herbal bag treatments or oil massage as a primary line of treatment. So in this case more than half of responsibility is yours!! After all you left a negative review out of frustrations with a lot of criticism in all aspects of our services. I this 13 years of my practice we always try to help the people at its best who comes to us. Thank you Dr Sharun 🙏

My second time panchakarma with Dr.Sharun, and this time i asked for 28 days treatment.
We as a whole family took treatment, me and my wife had been for panchakarma and for my parents it was other treatments.

The whole team itself is very kind and supportive, now they have become like a family for us. no words .. its absolutely fun this time and i was able to complete my 28 days treatment along with diet.
My fatty liver was cured last year's panchakarma and the cholesterol level decreased this time.
I wish to visit again as the place Varkala and Thanal Ayurvedic home both are great.

if anyone want to know more about my experience kindly reach out me , i would be happy to help .

The Panchakarma with Dr. Sharun and his staff was just sooo perfect, amazing, healing and loving for us. To begin with the spacious, clean and elegant hotel which creates an atmosphere of peace and well being is located at the front row to the cliff. The staff was always available, took so good care of everything.
Situated close to the stairs we spend the morning hours- before it got hot- at this holy , clean and amazing beach. Returning we were ready for breakfast and the first unit of Ayurvedic massage for about 90 Minutes and else treatment according to the doctors advice. Our therapists did just an excellent work. Pain and aches disappeared, I got a good answer towards my autoimmun disease and on top Dr. Sharun gave me an intensive, excellent and professional training about Marma points for further learning.
He definitely knows what he is doing- and if necessary he also helps with Ayurvedic medicine due to constitution and dosa. With an open heart and brilliant sense he guided us through all ups and downs coming along with undergoing a real treatment. He was always open and available for our needs and suggestions. We appreciated our stay very much. We recommend fully.
He also let us know, that he is about to open another place for people who prefer more quietness aport from the busy life from the cliff way. A consideration for a next stay.
Warm regards, Katrin and Martin from Germany, Munich

Want to express gratitude to Thanal Ayurveda Home for Dr Sharun’s professionalism, soothing and pleasant atmosphere of his clinic, and lovely hardworking therapists!
It was our first acquaintance with Ayurveda, me and my husband came on holiday from Ukraine, after the incredibly stressful year, in a very unhealthy condition – we had troubles with sleep, digestion and some other unpleasant conditions.
We had a consultation with another doctor previously, and saw the difference, as Dr. Sharun very precisely pointed out our weak spots straight away just by testing our pulse (unlike previous specialist). We felt immediate trust in him, and began our two week’s panchakarma program. I felt better almost straight on, and in the end of our treatments, all the negative consequences of stress and bad habits were gone. The Dr. Sharun is very attentive, and gives you the program you can handle, as we weren’t ready to some serious starving and more stress. The doctor constantly in touch, very caring and after seeing the difference, we are now dreaming about coming for such treatment each year. We are sure, that this whole experience will change our life for better, as Ayurveda became the way of life)

It's hard to express just how wonderful my experience here was, from the tranquil low volume music, the trickles of water from the fountain, the glorious smells of the various herbal remedies and massage oils, to the highly skilled, most compassionate Therapists and Doctors. I would recommend this clinic to anybody, with or without medical issues to take the plunge and visit here.
Feedback each day was passed on to Dr Sharun, and if there was an issue of any sort, was immediately remedied. I will be forever grateful to the clinic, and the beautiful members of staff.

This place is personal in a good way. The doctor takes his time, we had many inspiring talks....i got a lot of concret help and herbal medicines.... and the man who gave me treatments was very skilled and professional...overall a really good experience.

I choose to stay at the nearby hotel wich is situated on the center bayroad of Varkala ....nice but a little bit noisy at times so for those who want it more quiet my recomendation is to take treatments at rhe center and sleep at a calmer place ...Thankyou

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful stay at Thanal Beach resort. Great location just in front of the sea near by bars, shops and restaurants.
The rooms are spacious and well furnished and very clean, the Ayurveda space is located just behind the hotel and offers high quality treatments. All the staff was helpful and very friendly, my girlfriend had her birthday and Dr. Sharun was so kind to order a cake put her name on it and place it in our room before our check in! Such a wonderful surprise!

Me and my wife had been to Thanal for Panchakarma treatment here.
________________________________________________________________________
Treatement -
(I was treated for Fatty Liver)
Excellent service, detailed history taking for the right treatment with positive mind approach. Friendly attitude of the Doctor Sharun and very approachable too. I could contact the Doctor over the phone if I had any issues or need to get any clarification about my treatment. Well qualified doctor with excellent knowledge.

Big thanks to Doctor SHARUN.

We were lucky to get the best skilled masseurs.. special thanks to Antony and Divya.
Post the treatment we lost few kg's and also felt light, we will definitely visit again.

Stay -
its a decent stay, all the arrangement was good with regular maintenance.
I think now Varkala has become more crowded, so expect some party sound over the weekend.
___________________________

Thanks to everyone, time spent well.must visit place for best ayurvedic treatment around Varkala.

My journey to Thanal Ayurveda Home can be defined in 1 word 'Transformation'. As a wanderer and lost soul I visited Thanal in Varkala, just to meet the magician call Dr. Sharun. Dr Sharun is the person who has created this osais for people like me who are lost in desert of city life. Right from day 1 Dr. Sharun's life counseling and Ayurvedic treatment was a start for physical and emotional well being. I have never met such a selfless person in my life who believes only in doing good to others and not someone who treats his patients simply like customers. He talks at lengths about gratitude and kindness towards each and everyone/everything around us. His golden words and magical eye opening tasks and belief in spreading goodness, has the power to heal anyone's agony and suffering.
I am forever indebted to his healing, moreso emotional healing without expecting anything in return, just to spread love and kindness to everyone we meet in our lives.
I can still write so much but will summarise by saying that Thanal is a must visit to return to your true self and for a new beginning of a graceful life.
