    There are many tailors on the cliff, but head a little further and this is the ONLY one you should take your business to. Whether for bespoke, copies, or alterations, the workmanship at Asparagus is exceptional. Huge selection of silks, cottons, linens, block prints. Only wish I had found them sooner. Highly rate this wonderful tailors in Varkala.

    A small and well maintained aquarium. They have a good collection of fish breeds. It is situated closer to the Edava beach.

    I can’t recommend this place enough. The consultation I received from Dr Manoj was comprehensive and incredibly informative, the treatments I received from his team were wonderful. The place was incredibly welcoming and I left feeling so much more relaxed and experiencing a calm energy that I haven’t felt for quite a while now. I have tried a number of other Ayurvedic treatments in India and this place gave me the most memorable. I will return and would like to thank the team for such wonderful kindness.

    This trip is really for my wife. She loves yoga and is looking to deepen her practice in meditation. Being a physician myself, I was a little curious about Ayurvedic medicine, having heard about it in Singapore. We were definitely not disappointed.
    Verdant grounds and comfortable lodgings, and oh my, sumptuous vegan food lovingly prepared by Dhanya the cook. She opened her kitchen to us and shared her recipes generously when asked. Sleep was restful and never interrupted, possibly due to simple daily routines adopted, the menu ‘prescribed’ and most of all, Rakesh’s (the yogi host) cosmic energies from the fire temple and personal healing sessions.
    We went away with a much better understanding of what yoga aims to achieve (and stronger asana poses) and how meditation could be flexible yet insightful. What rich takeaways in a week. I learnt much and am grateful for having given ourselves this chance to discover a hidden gem in god’s own country.
    Highly recommended for tired bodies and lost souls!

    Visited centre for Ayurveda in January 24. Had a sequence of oil massages with different types of procedures after, which were recommended by Dr.Sruthy and suitablefor my type of body and my announced requests. Also, you may ask her to help with proper pills or medicine. Pretty sure, you'll get the right one.
    Dilip is a part of the team in clinic and therapist with 30 years! of experience and I really appreciate his care and super professional approach!
    If you are looking for professionals in the sphere of health, I highly recommend the centre.

    Amazing experience doing my TTC with them. The teachers are pushing your limits and making your believe in yourself. You learn a lot about yourself. Good and kind people. Also the place is calm and not in a noisy area, wich I appreciated. I recommend to everyone !!!!

    We had an amazing time practicing yoga in an authentic way. Some of the teachers were exceptional and incredible to meet.
    The food was delicious and Pachamama house was very comfortable for our month stay.
    Thank you for everything, Adhishakti 🙏🏻✨

    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 .

    Taking the 3-day yoga class was transformative! The structured sessions allowed for gradual progression, from foundational poses to more advanced techniques, catering to both beginners and seasoned practitioners. The instructors were knowledgeable, patient, and created a welcoming environment that encouraged growth and exploration. I feel more centered, flexible, and motivated to continue this journey after this immersive experience.

    Wow…
    I had no expectations and I had no idea what a panchakarma was.. and boy am I glad to have chosen this, YES!
    The treatment and effect is mind blowing, the staff and the doctors really know what they are doing. I was skeptic on beforehand, and I have been proven both with science, philosophy/spirituality and by effect.
    My experience here was more than 5/5 and I recommend everyone who has any form of problems to visit this clinic.
    I have had similar treatments before coming here and they were not of the same standard or the same effect.
    Blessed are the people who finds their way here!

    One of the best yoga school in varkala and it was amazing experience. The yoga school was close to Varkala Beach.
    I had an amazing experience with yoga masterat his yoga school. He is very engaging, helpful and passionate about what he does. He is very competent and confident. He takes a holistic approach to teaching yoga - which was very important to me. It helped me a lot, not just physically but mentally too. I would 100% recommend!! :)

    We totally endorse all of the previous reviews. We were not pressurised at all to make any purchases but when we asked for advice, it was beautifully presented and crystalline clear.

    We. Made some fantastic purchases at fixed prices - bliss.

    The whole experience was very positive. This shop sells high quality products and the owner is charming. We had a great discussion about the world, business and technology as well!

    If you only want rubbish souvenirs then the beach is a better bet. For high quality, Shalimar is a must.

    I visited this center for the yoga class with Siva. I would very highly recommend him as a yoga teacher. Kind, very inspiring, he is a teacher than truly incarnate yoga. After each classes I felt wonderful. He knows how to find the perfect limit between challenging you/ having a good time.
