My family including my pet dog and i visited the property earlier in June'22. An incredible experience and the rustic charm of Kalmatia awaited us. Kalmatia comprises of cozy villas dotting the 14 acre property with thick foliage graced with the constant chirping of birds. With ample nature trails leading into the pine forest, Kalmatia keeps the kids engaged via exposure to nature. The staff and management comprising of Pooja, Mahi, Umesh and Sunil were extremely hospitable and ever ready for a conversation on areas around Kalmatia worth visiting. Now leased to the Ayurvaid group, the property hosts a qualified doctor and facility which offers ayurvedic treatments and massages - a very relaxing experience. Despite the cusine being Vegetarian, a true non vegetarian like me didnt miss non veg for a minute. The food and options available are abundant to keep your gastric juices content. A must visit property....

We (my wife and I) stayed for 4 nights. We opted for the wellness package which included all meals and one daily ayurvedic treatment/person. The stay experience exceeded expectations on all counts - large forested serene property, cottages well spread out, exceptional (vegetarian) food, a surprisingly large/well equipped treatment centre and consistent outstanding service. While I tried the usual booking sites, eventually I found booking direct as the best option - Pooja the manager at the property was super responsive, responding to all our queries openly and quickly. Ayurvaid is easy to find and right on the access road. There is easy, comfortable parking within the property - unlike many places you don't have to park the car on the road and trek to the property. The rooms are spacious and while slightly dated, has all the amenities one would look for (this is not for people seeking 5 star luxury). The restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating areas - we had breakfast and lunch outside. I had read rather indifferent reviews about the food here, and so we came with low/no expectations. But we were pleasantly surprised to find the food quality exceptional - some of the best vegetarian food we have had; kudos to the brilliant Chef - Naveen. What made the meals even more special was the exceptional service by Umesh and Sunil, who served us. We were lucky to stay during a low occupancy period, so each meal was customised to our whims. The Ayurvedic centre/hospital is a large modern complex. We had our individual consultations with the resident Doctor, and had customised treatment plans for our stay. While we have had Ayurvedic treatments in many places before - the level of precision/process rigour was very evident/different in every aspect of the interaction. All treatments started precisely on time. A small thing I noticed was that the water for post treatment bath was consistently at the ideal temperature on all 4 days. The treatment centre also has a beautiful solarium and some lounge spaces where you can relax in. Overall, the consistently high hospitality/Service quality in every facet of interaction with the staff at Ayurvaid Kalmatia would compete with the best of luxury hotels, anywhere in the world. This is a testament to both the culture of Ayurvaid and to the effective leadership of Pooja, who as the centre manager is exceptional in her customer focus, attention to detail and willingness to go the extra mile for guests. We hope to be back soon!

It is a nice property well located, and you can see Himalayas from your cottages. The cottages are also nice. The downside in this property is the food:- the food here is is below average with limited choice. We stayed here for two nights and the food options were same for both the days, which is daal, aloo, gobhi capsicum and chapatis ( half cooked). It seems that it is under staffed and the dinner closing time is 8:30 and if you you are late then you have to eat cold food in the winters ( that is not a very nice feeling). Housekeeping needs a lot of improvement linen cleaning and quality at this hotel is is below per standard. Since it is an ayurvedic spa resort we also taken massage therapy which was also ok and I think was great about it. So don't expect much except the Views of Himalayas.

This place is a hidden gem. These a beautiful cottages with lovely views. We stayed at Achal that was not Nanda Devi view but I am not complaining. Cottage is impeccable neat and comfortable with amazing sit outs. With both Bukhari and Room Heater functioning it was nicely warm.What stands out is staff. The cook went out of their way to make everything we asked for. Food is delicious. They full filled all our requests with smiling face. They bonfires they made specially for us every night made out stay worth remembering Therapist were excellent. Never thought authentic Kerala massage will be available on top of Himalayas!!Overall ambience and feel of property is superb. I heavily recommend the place.

We as a family were looking for a relaxed vacation and God was kind enough in deciding AyurVAID Kalmatia. Awesome property with breathtaking views, state of the art kerala massages, an eye opening session with the Ayurvedic doctor and above all the generous hospitality by Ms Pooja and her team including Mr Sunil, Mr Shyam and the cook Mr Kedar made our trip a memorable one.

I just realized that I have been back for almost a month and have still not written my review, I am sorry but seems just like yesterday that I was relaxing and enjoying the rain in your balcony. Words can not describe the property and experience of my stay. The place is far more than depicted in the website or the pictures uploaded on the same. The property is beautiful, staff and service supreme (and the best thing is when they say home like food it is home like extremely tasty food without oil floating on the top even bitter gourd Karela stuffed with carrot, try their sweets made in jaggery still delicious. Do tell Mr. Kedar Chandra (Chef) your preferences and he will whisk out something interesting yet healthy from his sleeve and Mr. Umesh Karki the assistant would serve the same in a style fit for royalty. Dr. Akhil and Dr. Manoj along with their team (Pooja / Samita/ Manish the masseuse) were of great help. Last but surely not the least Pooja at the front desk was so co-operative and managed everything like an orchestra. A MUST MUST VISIT PLACE and I hope you have a great experience like mine.

Most amazing property with great view of Himalayan range, The place is nicely done up with each room having an expansive view of the Himalayas, If there is anything which is better than the hotel itself it is the service, it is a pleasure interacting with each staff member and they will really do everything to make your stay comfortable and exciting. Specially thanks to the host mr Bose ,and pooja. Treatment centre hav Well trained ayurvedic doctors with trained therepist Had memorable stay.

I went first for my consultations and was very much relieved of my health symptoms. Then did panch-karma a few weeks later, and felt very rejuvenated after. Was one of the best things that I have ever done. I often send my guests there for their too-class Abhyanga Massage, ShiroDhara, the works, and its always brings a smile on my face to see my clients looking soo happy and contented after! The property has some amazing landscapes, and can be very fulfilling for someone looking for an inner connection! Highly recommended to everyone.

Hyderabad, India1 contribution
Traveled with family and stayed for 2 nights.One of the most beautiful properties I have stayed at. Huge property with only 10 cottages which ensures we have personalized attention. Each cottage offers a fantastic view of the Himalayan peaks which is what we wake up to in the morning. The Ayurvedic center which is where the massages are done is a wonderland by itself. Has to be experienced more than to be spoken about. Have no negatives to say about the place whether its the fantastic food or the ever alert staff. Would like to recommend at least a 2 night stay(If one can afford it) to get a true feel of the place. One day would be too less to even see 1/4 of what the place offers. Please do not miss the Kasaar Devi temple which is walking distance from Ayurvaid - one of the most powerful yet simple temples I have been to.
