Your Holiday Destination

Kerala in southern India, also called “Gods own Country”, is one of India´s most popular tourist regions and known for its many Ayurveda schools. Here, Ayurveda isn't just a health system but is considered as a lifestyle. The monsoon season (June-October) with its high humidity provides the best conditions for the strengthening Ayurveda treatments.

Your Hotel

The family-owned resort has well trained, qualified and experienced Ayurveda physicians that go back as far as the 5th generations. It is located in an amidst beautiful, untouched nature between rice fields and coconut palms, close to the southern extension of the Backwaters, about 7 km from Kottayam.

The center with a reception and lobby is ideal for guests who appreciate intensive advice and authentic treatments and are looking for a genuine ayurvedic cure for best results. Here the ayurvedic cure is in the foreground for the preservation of health and used as a therapy of illnesses.

The ayurvedic chief physician has specialised on the treatment of diseases of modern society such as the metabolic syndrome (diabetes, obesity), migraine, insomnia, stress and its consequences on the immune system and also on the treatment of cancer. One of Dr. Sreejit’s special therapies is bloodletting with its immune strengthening and rejuvenating effect. To estimate the realistic chances of success in terms of specific indication or aims, the team of physicians offers personal advice also before and after the cure, via Skype or phone/skype (in English).

      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

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

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.

Anyone who wants to do an authentic PanchaKarma cure and is willing to deal with his body is just right. Highly qualified staff with a well-trained team of therapists and an excellent medical team. With rather prepared sattvic food and changing herbal teas. Who is serious with the ayurved. Lifestyle means is exactly right here. A high energetic place to harmonize body, mind and soul. Comprehensive information and education, which is provided by the resort in the form of questionnaires and Skype interview before departure is required, so that there is no misunderstanding. Here, Fit Reisen should pay close attention to the sales pitch. Otherwise smooth and very relaxing holiday !!!! show more

      Here it should be noted that it is a sattvic cuisine that I feel personally as extremely delicious and represents an insane support throughout the spa process.
