        We found the nose cleaning especially good. While it was not necessarily pleasant to have done, it had great results. I have not had such a clear head (breathing and thinking) in a long time. Physically and mentally we are well rested and have found a wonderful balance.

      ‘Exceeded our expectations’ Original review

      Our Ayurveda-stay has really exceeded our expectations. This resort deals with real, "deep" Ayurveda and not just Ayurveda Wellness. First, the body was detoxified for several days with various treatments, which was then followed by coordinated, external treatments.The stomach and back problems of my partner, and my skin problems (eczema) quickly decreased by the end were completely gone. I have already done 2 Ayurveda programmes - once in Sri Lanka and once in India. With both, detoxification was actually not as important as the external treatments. We can not recommend the Athreya Resort highly enough, and will certainly go there again. show more

      • Hotel in general
        We had a very nice bungalow in Kerala style overlooking the rice fields. Very beautiful. The rooms are simply but nicely decorated. The reception is also designed in Kerala style. With a lot of wood, brass and beautiful decoration. The treatment building is also kept this style and you feel completely comfortable.
      • Service and hospitality
        "Read requests from the lips" would be the appropriate sentence here. The staff are more than attentive, very polite and courteous, always friendly and extremely attentive. The reception staff tried to make everything that you wanted or needed possible. Simply excellent.
      • Cuisine
        The meals met the Ayurvedic plan - vegetarian food and only water as a beverage.
      • Spa, treatment and pool area
        The treatment area is retained in the Kerala style, the therapists are top.
      • Treatments and programmes
        First comes a detoxification program, which means some gentle food for the stomach for a few days, then oil massages, forehead treatments, steam rooms and lots more.

      ‘I'll be back :-)’ Original review

      This Ayurveda resort exceeded my expectations. It was not about being, like many others, but really to health. On the first day a treatment plan was created, depending on the constitution of each guest. My main concern was back pain and a few kilos too much by unhealthy food. At the beginning a few days detoxification were implemented. The doctor of the resort makes a daily visit with guests to check their current state and possibly adapt the treatment. After detoxification was followed by the more external treatment of oil massages, face fonts, rice massages etc. The food was strictly vegetarian. At beverages there were mainly water. With me with an addition of ginger. Coffee and tea does not exist. Yoga sessions are offered daily. The staff can only be described as friendly, polite, very helpful. So "TOP" I can only say that my back pain is gone, and during the treatment I have lost 3.5 kg. I also have to expand the herbal medicines which I have taken also at the resort for 3 months with home taken by the Kurerfolg. Meanwhile it is 6 kg. And I have my old weight almost back. I just feel good again. My eating habits I have something changed. I renounce almost entirely on Fleich- and sausage products, which included far my favorite dishes. Use less oil. I thank Dr. hereby Sreejit, his wife and the entire team. Once again I have the opportunity I will go back right here, but then not only for 2 weeks but a little longer. I highly recommend the resort. show more

      • Hotel in general
        The resort consists of authentic Kerala bungalows with terraces for outside sitting.
      • Service and hospitality
        Simply "TOP"
      • Cuisine
        Maybe a little more variety would be well suited to food.
      • Spa, treatment and pool area
        The treatment house is very pleasant.
      • Treatments and programmes
        I had about 3 hours per day applications. The therapists are absolutely friendly, attentive and qualified.

      ‘Mixed impressions’ Translated by Google

      Before starting this evaluation, I should point out that I have extensive experience with Ayurvedic cures, which gives me great possibilities for comparison.  This stay would have been less disappointing if the positive results obtained during the first two weeks had not been ruined by questionable decisions imposed by the medical manager of the Ayurvedic center. show more

      • Hotel in general
        The place is pleasant: the center is surrounded by a large, very well-kept garden, the environment is classic for Kerala: rice fields and coconut palms, greenery is everywhere, calm too. The rooms would benefit from being more welcoming and above all better maintained: cleaning is done only every other day, which is unique in the world, unjustifiable and unacceptable. Warn future customers of this peculiarity, they will leave knowingly and will not have this very bad surprise on arrival. If I had been warned, I would have given up this trip.
      • Service and hospitality
        Friendly and cheerful staff, efficient and clearly benefited from good training and internal monitoring. We guess that the supervision and management of all the staff are rather rigorous.
      • Cuisine
        Let me laugh. Ayurvedic food is anything but gourmet. Despite this, the cook made meals that were generally acceptable.
      • Spa, treatment and pool area
        Horror: the massage beds are in PLASTIC! In my 11 previous Ayurvedic stays, I have encountered only magnificent beds carved in one piece in a very large tree trunk. The wood is very hard and has an extremely fine grain, which makes it very pleasant, beneficial and compatible with Ayurvedic principles. The thin mattress placed on Athreya's beds is also made of plastic and is useful for everyone. Summary cleaning between two customers, better not to think about it. The treatment spaces are clean, the therapists who administer the treatments are also responsible for cleaning the premises. The calm and the pleasantness of the environment largely promote rest and relaxation.
      • Treatments and programmes
        Very professional care, good organization. The therapists all benefit from a solid training, the care is quickly beneficial in whatever center we are.
