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).

    ‘Incredible beneficial experience on all levels’ Original review (automatically translated)

    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. show more

    • Hotel in general
      The hotel was very well organized and efficiently run...The surroundings and the place were quiet, beautiful un super clean.
    • Service and hospitality
      The service, the helpfulness, the friendliness was for me convincingly lived...
    • Cuisine
      The food was good, tasty and cooked according to the rules of Ayurveda... Maybe a little more surprise in the menus would be great....
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      The treatments were tailored to the person and their problems. I slept a lot and was cleansed inside and out at the end.
    • Treatments and programmes
      The erosion value as well as the health feeling were convincing. I felt energized. The quality and competence of the staff was excellent.

    ‘Mixed impressions’ Original review (automatically translated)

    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.

    ‘Unique if you are looking for the right Ayurveda’ Original review (automatically translated)

    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. show more

    • Hotel in general
      Standard but clean and with a very positive energy. If you don't live in the cottages you have to go past the Indian cowshed and through a rice field - you have to like it, I love it!
    • Service and hospitality
      Unique service and friendliness and always with a smile - from the doctor to the therapist to the service staff. I already miss this team.
    • Cuisine
      How can healthy food taste so delicious ???? However, it must be clear that this is about protecting the stomach and not spoiling it, for wellness seekers or people who want to spoil themselves with culinary delights, this is definitely not the right thing.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      I give it 5 stars because there is no pool and spa area - a pool is not supportive for Ayurveda. The therapy rooms are clean and have everything you need - if you don't need oil massages, you won't get any.
    • Treatments and programmes
      My third Ayurveda cure and yet the first in which everything was really used. Cow urine is not just good for plants. Massages are not primarily about wellness but moving the toxins, as bruises can sometimes occur.

    ‘Everything was great’ Original review (automatically translated)

    Very caring staff good medical care beautiful place for Panchakarmakur great tranquility - in India! very hard to organize trips I felt very comfortable and I am well recovered There is a lot of emphasis on explanations of the treatments, which meets the European need for information very much. show more

    • Hotel in general
      After I moved to a room on the "island" everything was fine. The assigned room "Cottage" was too dark and too musty for me. The environment and view in my new room was awesome
    • Service and hospitality
      Everyone was very helpful, friendly and tried hard. Even when I had a violent pain attack and could no longer walk, I was very accommodating in my room by Dr. Sreejit treated. The assistant doctor and the therapists cared for me in a touching way.
    • Cuisine
      It was Ayurvedic dietary, which is okay from this point of view, but not always super tasty ....
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      it was - intentionally chosen by me - medical Ayurveda. This eliminates the spa area
    • Treatments and programmes
      The synchronized massages were not very synchronous, which was due to the composition of the team. But the two therapists were very nice, friendly and tried hard.
