I visited Amal Tamara a few days ago.
It was a fantastic trip.
The food was vegetarian, mostly organic and freshly prepared as per my body constitution.
The menu for each meal was given stating the name of the dish, description and health benefits.
The therapies helped me to destress and unwind.
I did yoga, meditation, prepared herbal dye, and listened to live Carnatic Music.
The resort is exactly what you need to heal and rejuvenate amidst a tranquil setting.

What a beautiful and healthy experience. I was staying for 15 days for a Pancha Karma treatment (- my very first -) and enjoyed my daily routine of yoga, treatments, consultations, excellent food, meditation and cultural and ayurvedic education being delivered by the most friendly and kind people, always caring and going the extra service mile with a smile. The rooms and facilies are beautiful, spotless and up to western standards facing the lake and being exposed to an orchstra of birds singing. I felt energized just a few days after arrival and very much at peace at Amal Tamara and I definitely plan to return.

Amal Tamara turned out to be the perfect retreat for me take a pause, connect with self, and focus on my health and wellness. The highly motivated team ensured that I stay on track with my wellness at every point and I continue to take the advice till today,
The setup of the place couldn’t be better, By the Vembanadu lake, the beautiful property is very welcoming. It allows nature to be there by your side all through.
There were some unexpected surprises that were in store for me - 1) customised vegetarian food: never expected such amazing variety in vegetarian food. Each meal was prepared with purpose and I used to always look forward to the next surprise meal in the day. 2) the team ensured guests were kept busy and engaged with a lot of activities that were planned - cooking classes, trip to Allapuzha, extended yoga classes, boat ride, visit to Patharimanal island, etc.
I came back feeling very rejuvenated and my back problem healed. I want to thank all the members who made my stay worthwhile. I have beautiful memories of each and everyone of the Amal Tamara family and am looking back at opportunities to visit the place again

The whole staff at Amal Tamara is so warm and friendly. The food is healthy without sacrificing taste. The front desk goes out of it’s way to create personalized, memorable experiences. Dr Ajitha is wise, patient, and warm. And my therapists all week, Nikhil and Amal, couldnt have been more attentive and caring. Hope to visit again.

It took me a while to commit to a long journey to India. But it was worth every hour i spent on the way there.
The most important part for me - the treatments - worked well and took care of the issue that western medicine could not handle.
I also learned a lot from wise local people who worked at the retreat, and i connected to nature as never before. It was the most relaxing peaceful experience, that gifted me wisdom and relaxation. While I still have a long journey to go for personal improvement, this place definitely planted seeds of love and wisdom, that I hope will grow and stay with me for life. And it feels like the genuine and abundant care that I received there, will continue improving my life for a very long time.
Every team member was genuinely nice, supportive, every meal was delicious, every sunrise and sunset was worth a 1000 words.
I wish for every person to experience Amal Tamara and become Amal Yatri.
I am infinitely grateful to this place.

I visited Amal Tamara this April and I can confidently say that this is the kind of wellness retreat that I was looking for and the ayurvedic resort has surpassed all my expectations from this break. The services, design of the program, the meals, the practices, the property, and the overall hospitality at Amara are top-notch! I am so impressed!

I love their structured approach; I love how they encourage you to adopt healthy practices gradually and I love how they also let you be and allow space! The staff is extremely talented, professional, and warm. There is this short phrase we use in India – “Seva bhava” (the joy in serving); this is what I felt all through my 9-day stay at the retreat and at every juncture of my treatment. I even spent my birthday at Amal and the staff made it super special!

I hope I can return back again next year, and I really hope they will keep up with the same standards of a traditional yet modern authentic Ayurveda wellness retreat!

Wow, what an amazing true authentic ayurvedic experience. The level of professional service, the friendliness and welcoming care given at Amal Tamara is out if this world. We felt truly taken care of and pampered by every single staff. The food was prepared individually by an authentic ayurvedic master chef. Thanks to Vishnu, who we had contact with for the past months, our whole experience has been a well rounded smooth and healing journey. We recommend him highly as an entry point into this fabulous establishment. We will be back again in April 2023 for some more healing and pampering.

Enjoyed my Amal experience. The food offering finds the balance between wellness and great flavours. The service team is very switched on. The backwater views are very tranquil. Look for the multi-coloured butterflies in the pool/garden area

Amal Tamara is an incredible life experience in wellbeing, retreat, healing and ease. I can't recommend it enough. I spent 17 days there on a Panchakarma retreat and was so cared for by every member of the staff. They work as seamless team holding their guests with grace, love and professionalism. Everything I experienced took me deeper and deeper into wellbeing. If you are interested in depth science based ancient wisdom to heal, this is your place.
