Our best authentic Ayurveda retreats in India
What to expect from traditional Ayurveda treatments
Our partner hotels in India have an extensive range of programs with luxurious Ayurveda treatments for both healing and wellness. The exclusive packages can be adapted to your length of stay, up to a multi-week Ayurveda holiday in India.
Each Ayurveda retreat begins with an initial consultation. Here traditionally trained Ayurveda therapists determine your "Dosha type". Accordingly, a bespoke Ayurveda therapy plan is created just for you.
Typical treatments such as ayurvedic massages and traditional forehead treatments are an integral part of each therapy. Relaxation programs such as yoga, meditation and movement exercises are also incorporated into your therapy to support all Ayurveda procedures. Many resorts offer the opportunity to deepen your knowledge of Ayurveda or explore ayurvedic cooking with special courses and workshops.
In Ayurvedic medicine, health is the highest good and therefore the basis of a vital life. During Panchakarma therapy, a detox therapy which translates to the “five procedures”, toxins are systematically and gently flushed from the body and at the same time the soul is healed by means of massages and warm oils.
Before you start Panchakarma, you will be informed by a certified therapist about the procedure and, together with you, they will create a therapy plan tailored specifically to you.
Rasayana aims to turn back time and help you feel younger and more vital. This therapy will free you from toxins and waste products that age your body and shorten your lifespan as well as gently rebuild your life force. You will be provided with an individual nutrition and wellness plan for the duration of your Ayurveda retreat in India. This ensures a detoxification and purification in the gentlest form and frees cells and tissue from unnecessary waste. Cell and tissue rejuvenation is the goal of this Ayurveda retreat. You will notice changes in the appearance of your skin after a very short time and feel fitter and more active.
A healthy body runs smoothly. Mechanisms such as metabolism, the lymphatic system, lungs, liver and kidneys routinely remove all harmful substances. Ayurvedic medicine in the form of herbal supplements aid the detox process. But from time to time, even the best system is overwhelmed and needs not only a break, but also active support for recovery and regeneration. A detox helps your body rebalance its own defenses through rest, exercise and detoxification to prepare it for what lies ahead.
Ayurveda weight loss
In determining your specific dosha (vata, pitta, kapha), Ayurveda practitioners are given lots of vital information about your body, including tendencies for your life habits, physical and mental health, and even information about your metabolism. When an ayurvedic specialist establishes your dosha type, they are able to tailor a weight loss plan that is based on your body and personal habits, both unique contributing factors to weight management. The treatments will also be tailored to help you rebalance your body and soul as well as eliminate toxins, aiming to help you achieve your long-term weight loss goals in a healthy way and keep the pounds off!

Many people with medical conditions, often chronic, turn to Ayurvedic medicine as an alternative to typical modern or Western medicine treatments. Customary modern medical treatments often involve taking a variety of pills that give many people more side effects than relief. They have since turned to Ayurveda for a holistic and natural approach to treating their chronic illnesses or symptoms with traditional treatments and age-old Ayurvedic medicine and herbal remedies. Many doctors even approve Ayurvedic medicine as a complementary treatment method in conjunction with modern medical approaches.
