I came to Udayagiri for Panchakarma. It's been a month now and I still miss this place. The first thing I want to mention is the people who create this place. They are beautiful. I thank the owner Ajith for creating a place with Ayurveda philosophy. This is a place for mental and physical health. I liked the location where the complex is located. It's beautiful wildlife and stunning views. For some it may be a problem that it is located on a mountain, but for me it was a big plus. The doctor planned the treatment and I followed the regimen for three weeks. Thank to doctor Dipin Sai! Many thanks to my therapists - Sreeja and Babitha, Navya. They have golden hands and hearts! The morning begins with pooja. I sincerely thank to Muralidharan for the mantras, energy and kind eyes! Yoga lessons with Rakesh help get in touch with body and mood! This is a practice where you learn to feel happiness with your whole body. The food is great! Women in the kitchen are sorceresses. They always cook with soul and a smile. Thanks to the team Pravitha! The rooms are simple, but have everything you need. The housekeeping team (Vanaja , Soumya, Sumithra) ensures cleanliness! We also had a farm tour. This is interesting! And it’s great that they follow to the basics of Ayurveda - healthy food from the fields. This is impressive! Of course I feel changes. This place changes the way of life, views. You begin to feel better in touch with your body and soul. Now I am writing this review and looking at my tests, which have improved significantly. I thank everyone for their work in this center! And, of course, I want to return.

It has been almost a year since my daughter and I spent 3 weeks in Udayagiri...and the vibe of this place is still so vivid and amazing... Udayagiri is beautiful, serene, the staff is amazing, professional, and kind and the food is delicious! I would like to thank all of them, and also thank the owner for creating this place for the benefit of everyone The mountain view is breathtaking, any time of day....at 6AM waiting for the sunrise or in the afternoon at sunset...with animals, birds, nature, mist and clouds... It happened so that at the same time some very precious people were staying at the center so our stay was even more enriching and we kept in contact with them... I was healed there, I would recommend Udayagiri centre and also go back as soon as I can!

We are coming to the end of a four week stay at this very special place full of respect, admiration and gratitude for the wisdom of Ayurveda and the consistent care and generosity of everyone who works here. In the beautiful surroundings of the Wayanad district of Kerala we were able to improve our health and well being through individual programs prescribed by the resident doctor, yoga adapted to our individual needs and abilities , daily pooja , and delicious, nutritious organic food grown with care at Ayurveda Yogavilla farm nearby. This centre is a rare oasis in a racing world to rejuvenate body, mind and spirit, surrounded by the beauty of nature and the love and compassion of human beings fully dedicated to their vocation of providing healing and rejuvenation to all who are fortunate to spend time here. Recommended without hesitation!

I came to the center of the mountain to stay there and see my spiritual master every day. I am delighted and full of gratitude to have the chance to meet the yoga villa team. Thank you to the cooks for the quality of the food and it's beauty. Thanks to Rakesh for his luminous presence, his patience and his smile. Thanks to Mularadaram for the rituals. An Agni hotra on the mountain for the August full moon, it's magnificent and I will never forget it! Thanks to Sanju and Amantit for their gentleness and kindness. I keep in my heart wonderful moments shared in this center in the middle of nature. I can not wait to return to!!!

Udayagiri retreat centre is an absolute gem. It is located in the mountains of Tholpetty and a serene piece of heaven. Waking up above the clouds with the sunrise and only the sounds of nature is truly healing on its own. The staff is super welcoming and being here feels like being part of a big family. After having done a full Pancha Karma cleansing procedure and Marma treatment at their sister facility Ayurveda Yoga Villa, I came here to start my rejuvenation program. Amongst other things this includes yoga asana/pranayama/meditation/yoga nidra classes, practices I do on my own, amazing personalised organic nourishing diet, rasayana medicines and milk from specially fed special breed cows. I am still in the process but are experiencing levels of serenity, inner peace I have never experienced in my adult life before. Very excited to continue this treatment/way of life. Everything they offer here is similar to Ayurveda Yoga Villa, so I include part of my review I wrote for that place; This place can cater the more "light" (physical) challenges and, as for me and many other returning guests I have spoken to, also has the potency to go very deep into healing severe illnesses given up on by allopathy, ones traumas, souls purpose etc. Deep knowledge of, and experience with authentic Ayurveda, Yoga, Siddha system, Vedic scriptures is all present. As all of India, Ayurveda Yoga Villa took quite a hit with Covid which in some areas is showing in maintenance, staff not full force yet etc, but to me this was no issue at all, just incredibly grateful they chose to follow their Dharma and made huge efforts and sacrifices to keep the place open. So if you are serious about healing and are ready to put the effort in to change your lifestyle (in an incredibly supportive container), this place can be a truly life changing experience. Namaste 🙏🏻
