My stay at Somatheeram for a week will be cherished for a lifetime. The experience was an unforgettable one . The team is amazing who genuinely work hard in catering to all the needs of their guests . The staff is extremely hard working, courteous and polite . They treated me so well made me feel so special and loving . They literally treat you like family. Right from the experienced Doctors who attended me daily , the skilled therapists and the effective yoga sessions to the staff at the reception and the attendants at the restaurant , to the house keeping , each and everyone is contributory to this remarkable experience . The food is really healthy and delicious at the same time , I just cannot get over the taste of the veg stew and the jackfruit seed in mango curry . Even the water they served , I loved drinking the herbal water all the time .The rooms are amazing with beautiful ocean view , one just cannot stop staring at it . The special dance programme organized by the team on the auspicious day of Vishu and the traditional feast will always be remembered . A special mention goes to the founder of Somatheeram , Mr . Mathew who personally interacts with all the guests and shows genuine interest in their well being and also for the beautiful presents . The place is as beautiful as it seems from the pictures and the people make it even more so. I wish I could do the panchakarma like my sister , as one week does not feel enough , I wish I could stay more . Most importantly , the way their team has maintained and managed to keep the place safe and secure even during such difficult times of Covid is worthy of applause . Hope to visit again and next time for more days !!!!

Amazing experience with my panchakarma treatments. The quality is very high, products and medicines used are definitely effective and the 2 women who used to massage me every day are highly professional and nice. My room was spacious and had an amazing bathroom with a big bath for herbal treatments also. Food is very healthy and all the people who work here are sweet and collaborative. The environment is so relaxing and peaceful. I highly recommend this place

Kudos to the therapist, Guest Relation Team and not the least the restaurant staffs. Am so happy and satisfied with their down to earth warm service. Therapist Sindhu and Sunitha are really cordial and masters at their art of massage and their homely care that they rendered throughout my treatment. Doctors Chandrika mam and Gopika monitor my health timely and provide treatment based on my daily vitals. Deepu, Arun gave me the best yoga lessons. Arun helped me correct my postures and took me on a swift pace and taught the art of Kaphala bhati. Thanks Arun! Jinu helped me learn the proper way of Sun salutation. Soyi from the front desk was very helpful and friendly throughout my stay. It would have been better if we had the front main gate of Ayursoma automated. I had to keep calling the front desk all the time to open and cloae the gate as and when I step out for a beach walk.

Myself along with my family ( wife and one kid) stayed in Somatheeram Ayurvedic resort for 7 days during March 2021. It was a much needed break for us. We did no mistake by choosing Somatheeram . It was an amazing experience. Ayurvedic treatments are something one should not miss in lifetime and Somatheeram is a right choice because of its traditional ambience with world class facilities . Consultation with expert doctors and customised food menu based on body composition makes the experience unique. We thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality and association with friendly staffs . It was a privilege to meet the master Mind behind the whole idea, Mr Baby Mathew, Managing Director of Somatheeram resort.
