It was amazing but definitely needed to stay longer than 8 days. They don't cut corners and they take the best care of you to ensure you get the maximum benefit of what you have invested. Just sit back, listen to the waves, birds, and your body. Watch your monkey mind settle down and get messages about your health and spirit from the Ayurvedic doctor, the incredible massage therapist, the chef, and your own body as it softens and speaks to you! Elizabeth, manages and directs all with grace and true interest in your well-being and happiness.

This was my first trip to Trivandrum and didn't know what to expect.Experiencing the whole Ayurvedic treatment had been on my mind for so long. I needed to cut off from my routine and wanted to be kind to my body and mind . I must say a BIG "Thank you" to the team at Aanandakosha. It is a small and cosy resort and everyone treated me with so much of attention and care. I did need a few days to adjust to the place, a new routine and food but eventually felt sad to leave after 2 weeks. Elizabeth is a beautiful soul and a good listener, she will do everything to make you feel at ease. Doctor Manish is very professional, I had a complete health check and a very good follow up. Left the place feeling new !! I will definitely come back and I highly recommend this resort if you want to switch off from your stressful routine and take care of yourself.

I just completed my short days of Ayurveda treatments at Aanandakosha. This is my first experience of its kind even though I was born and brought up in Kerala but never tasted it in the real classic way. This is a modern facility as they claim, and has most of the requirements for a traveler. Neat and clean rooms with enough storage, air-conditioning, and a balcony overlooking the sea are the top-up. I used to watch the sunset from my balcony with herbal tea. It is a magical place to sit and relax. On the first day itself, my treatments started after having a detailed consultation with the doctor. The therapists Dominic and Dhana are treating you with magical hands. Within a few days, I experienced a transformation in my body. Really wanted to do more days, but my job constraints prevented me from doing it with the days the doctor suggested. The food served by the place is fresh and ayurvedic with good taste. I never realized there are this many varieties of vegetarian options. The place is calm and green with a beautiful pool to relax and we will definitely come back for more days to get the real taste of Ayurveda.

I was looking to escape from the stress of a big city and recharge after a particularly challenging period. Aanandakosha was the perfect place. I stayed for 7 days (next time I will stay longer!). The staff was friendly and took care of all of my needs. In particular, I loved the treatments which were twice daily. They helped center my mind and body so that I could relax and unwind. The food was refreshing and healthy -- it was nice to have three tasty meals prepared for me. I was also able to see a few sites in town including the palace museum, wax museum and Varkala beach. Since returning home, I've tried to incorporate some of the Ayurvedic practices into my daily life. I'm appreciative to Elizabeth and her staff for making me feel so welcome. It truly felt like home.

I spent two relaxing weeks at Aanandakosha, where I had the pleasure of meeting Elizabeth and her welcoming and friendly team. The therapists were excellent and very attentive and Dr Manish is very knowledgeable. I came away feeling rejuvenated, healthier and am incorporating some ayurvedic practices into my daily life back home. The freshly prepared food was delicious as well, and Elizabeth and her team are very accommodating – taking care to arrange outings and any special requests for their guests. After a few days, Aanandakosha felt like a second home! The place is ideal to unwind and de-stress, with daily yoga sessions and a refreshing pool. It’s also close to the beach (a 25 minute walk or short auto-ride away), where you can enjoy the sunset and waves, and some nice shops. There’s a nice community vibe at Aanandakosha as well, and during my stay I made some lovely friends! Thank you :)
