“Thank you for 14 wonderful days”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

We stayed at Sarovaram Backwater Resort the second time, first time was 2011.
Many thanks to the whole staff of this wonderful ayurvedic resort, especial thanks to Dr. Kiran.
His empathic feeling as a ayurvedic practitioner is nearby unic and in his staff are the best therapists we ever had.
The meals are really detoxifying and taste very good. I am sure a unique highlight is this wonderful place, in energetic meaning it's a superb garden, like paradise. You live in middle of nature, relaxing between treatments in this garden with a lot of birds on lakeside.
We had the opportunity to visit Aykara Pharmaceuticals, the place where the ayurvedic products are produced. Many thanks to Dr. Aykaramuralidharan, father of Dr. Kiran for his kindness.
We sure will come back!!
Dr. Bernhard Lichtenauer

Situated In a beautiful and quiet garden, with very nice and clean bungalows, we spent 3 weeks of happiness: treatments are serious and efficient ( skin clear, muscle fluid, lost of weight, good mood and empty mind ) doctors were friendly and diligent to prescribe individual treatment, masseurs were excellent and very professional, and all the smiling staff was perfect in every duty, taking care of everyone of us with patience. We also enjoyed with a good yoga teacher. People around in Asthamudy or Anchallumood are very hospitable and happy to speak with us. In fact, we've got a lot of love and are very grateful.

Sarovaram…This word which in malayalam means "Beautiful garden on lake side…" remains one of our best recollections of our numerous journeys in India. (Here are a few photos)
About medical care, treatment, organisation…useless repeating the laudatory comments already present on this website and which we completely agree.
In the neighbourhood, most of locals who are not used to the presence of tourists, manifest a shy curiosity and a moving kindness. The big inconvenience of these sympathetic touches is refusing invitations for drinking "tchaïa" in order to respect prescriptions of the cure… at least in the beginning.
It's possible to get monney (ATM) and to go shopping in Anchalumoodu (about 7 Km for 5 INR by bus or 50 INR by rickshaw). For more important shopping, you have to go to Kollam either by road or by boat : a lovely one and a half hour trip through the backwaters.
For the health of the body, the heart and the mind, Sarovaram is realy a place where you can go trustfully.

The best way we can describe Sarovaram is as “Home away from home” in a beautiful & serene environment. At the end of our stay of 21 days, we are so happy to say that it was a wise decision to be here and that we are totally with fulfilled tranquilized & rejuvenated ayurveda treatment.
At Sarovaram - service, staff, and environment every aspect is appreciable. We would love to be back at Sarovaram to experience all of it again & again.

I stayed at Sarovaram on my own for three nights in December. Although my stay was too short to experience the effectiveness of their Ayurvedic treatments, it was nothing but pure bliss, once my city soul got used to the quiet and to not doing anything. Staying here really forced me to take a step back, slow down and relax, and the staff really took great care of me. I was traveling solo, but I never once felt like my safety was compromised. The compound is gated, so you need not worry about intruders.

The room, while not luxurious, was clean, and I loved watching the sunrise in the gardens. The vegetarian food served at the dining hall is delicious and good for you, and even though I had minimal activity during my stay, except for morning yoga with Master Ullas (a must-do!), I left feeling lighter and more cleansed. The Ayurvedic massages are more gentle than the deep tissue massages I am used to, but my advice is to come here with an open mind.
