Athreya Medical Resort in Detail

Your Hotel

The Athreya Medical Resort is owned by a family of qualified Ayurvedic doctors who have more than 5 generations of experience. In the middle of beautiful, untouched nature, it is situated between rice fields and coconut palms near the southern foothills of the backwaters and only about 7 km from Kottayam. The Kerala-style centre, as a kind of hospital in terms of medical services, is ideal for guests who appreciate intensive consultation and authentic treatments. Here, the Ayurveda therapy (Panchakarma) for the preservation of health and as a therapy for diseases is in the foreground. About 30 minutes away is the new sister resort Dheemahi Ayurvedic Centre (see below).

Health & Treatments

Under the guidance of the very experienced and modern Ayurveda scientist Dr. Sreejit. He is supported by a qualified team of doctors and therapists and is specialized in the treatment of civilization diseases such as metabolic syndrome (diabetes, overweight), migraine, insomnia, stress and its consequences on the immune system as well as in the treatment of cancer. Traditional Ayurvedic remedies are successfully combined with Western medicine. The necessary oils and medicine are produced directly on site in the family's own pharmacy. A special therapy of Dr. Sreejit is the bloodletting with its immune-strengthening and regenerating effect. For a realistic assessment of the chances of success of an Ayurveda therapy, the medical team offers personal consultation before and after the therapyvia Skype or telephone (English). Likewise, before the trip, a questionnaire is sent out to record the patient's medical history in order to be able to adjust to the patient in the best possible way. On site, you will receive a laptop computer every day, so that you can optimize your stay even further thanks to your constant feedback. Yoga and meditation support the success of the therapy. A modern and fully equipped dental practice offers the possibility of dental rehabilitation (payable on site).

Health, body awareness and "lifestyle management

"Athreya Ayurveda - Ayurvedic cleansing therapy, enriched with the knowledge of western medicine - with the aim of restoring the balance of body, mind and soul, reducing stress and strengthening the immune system. Ideal also for civilisation problems such as migraine, diabetes, insomnia. Medical lifestyle consultation about lifestyle with "do's & dont's" for a healthy lifestyle. The doctors and staff of the Athreya do not act according to the principle of the raised index finger, but according to the principle of mutual trust."

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.

Authentic Ayurveda in a beautiful place

After 23 days of Athreya PanchaKarma healing therapies I feel physically and mentally very strong and rejuvenated again. Professional medical care, attentive therapists, good healthy Ayurvedic food cooked fresh 3 times a day, great clean accommodation, beautiful garden, fantastic yoga classes 2x a day. Conclusion: Athreya is 100% recommendable and we will come again.

Incredible beneficial experience on all levels

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.

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.

Unique if you are looking for the right Ayurveda

Athreya is the ideal place for everyone who is open to an authentic Ayurveda cure with all its facets. No wellness with a pool, but a therapy that (only) offers everything that promotes detoxification and that with the unique Dr. Sreejit, his wonderful team and like-minded guests / fellow combatants.
