Athreya Medical Resort in Detail

Your Ayurveda Resort

The Athreya Medical Resort is owned by a family of qualified Ayurveda doctors with more than five generations of experience. Located amidst beautiful, pristine nature between rice fields and coconut palms near the southern foothills of the Backwaters and about 4.3 miles from Kottayam. The resort, built in Kerala style and functioning as a hospital in terms of medical services, is ideal for guests who value intensive consultation and authentic Ayurveda treatments. The Ayurveda Panchakarma treatment is a focus here for maintaining health and treating diseases. The sister resort, Dheemahi Ayurvedic Centre, is about 30 minutes away (see link below).

Location & Surroundings

The state of Kerala in South India is renowned for its numerous Ayurveda schools. Here, Ayurveda is not just a healthcare system, but a way of life. The monsoon season (June to October) provides optimal conditions for rejuvenating Ayurveda treatments due to the high humidity.

Dining & Leisure

In the Ayurveda Restaurant, vegetarian dishes are served according to your individually prescribed dietary plan. Various diets, such as for diabetics or gluten-free, are available on request.

Ayurveda Center

The Ayurveda Center is led by the highly experienced and modern Ayurvedic scientist Dr. Sreejith, supported by a qualified team of Ayurvedic doctors and therapists. Specializing in the treatment of lifestyle diseases such as metabolic syndrome (diabetes, obesity), migraine, insomnia, stress and its effects on the immune system, as well as cancer treatments. Traditional Ayurvedic remedies are successfully combined with Western medicine. The necessary oils and herbal medicines are produced on-site in the family-owned pharmacy. A special therapy by Dr. Sreejit is bloodletting, known for its immune-boosting and regenerative effects. To realistically assess the prospects of success of an Ayurveda therapy, the team offers personal consultations before and after the therapy via Skype or phone (in English). Additionally, a questionnaire to capture medical history is sent before the trip to best prepare for the patients. On-site, guests receive a laptop daily to further optimize their stay based on constant feedback. Yoga and meditation support the therapy success. A modern and fully equipped dental clinic is available for dental treatments (payable on-site).

Integrated Approach to Cancer Healing

Dr. Sreejit regularly trains over 200 Ayurvedic doctors online in Ayush (Ayurveda, Yoga, Unani, Siddha, Homeopathy) and Allopathy, who wish to learn and practice the integrated approach to cancer healing here. Together with Dr. Sreejit's mentor Dr. Mathew, they have treated over 8,000 advanced-stage cancer patients with varying degrees of success. Dr. Sreejit shares these experiences and comments on YouTube to assist those affected.

Health, Body Awareness, and "Lifestyle Management"

Ideal for lifestyle ailments such as migraine, diabetes, insomnia. Medical lifestyle consultation on life management with 'do's & don'ts' for a healthy lifestyle.

If you are looking for authentic Ayurveda without any frills, this is the place for you. Dr. Sreejith is simply top-notch. The entire team works with great attention to detail, from the therapeutic "magic hands" to the chef. I felt very well looked after and my body says: Thank you so much Athreya! It's great that you exist! This was definitely not my last healing therapy.

A fantastic place to heal, find yourself and be welcomed into a community. Dr. Sreejit has a profound knowledge of Ayurveda, is dedicated, passionate and caring. Together with Dr. Jayalaksmi he manages the clinic and the staff with care and efficiency. The therapists who accompanied me throughout my stay were unbelievable in their professionalism, discretion and care... These qualities were found in all the staff. Each of them tried to make the stay as pleasant as possible.
