Soma Kerala Palace in detail

Your Ayurveda Hotel

☀ The Soma Kerala palace is located on an island on the eastern coast of the Vembanad Lake in the famous Backwaters of Kerala, ca. 15 minutes driving distance from Vaikkom (ca. 4 km away) and 65 km away from Kochin. Our guests will be transferred via boat from the mainland to the resort. The spacious area is surrounded by a cultivated palm garden area with a total of 9 palaces that are traditional,newly refurbished Kerala houses and offer many retreats for recreation and relaxation seekers. The majestic houses have been refurbished in detail work and were afterwards brought to the new Ayurveda centre on the island. The special thing hereby is the picturesque ambiance of the Backwaters and the up to 250-year-old architectural buildings, which belong to the cultural heritage of the country.

As well as in the sister resorts Somatheeram Ayurveda Resort and Soma Manaltheeram Ayurveda Beach Village, the focus of the Soma Kerala Palace lies on the 5000 year old art of Ayurveda healing.

How You Reside

18 comfortable rooms and 12 suites each with a bath/shower/WC, (ceiling) fan, TV, telephone, air conditioner, richly decorated wooden pieces of furniture and carved decorations and have either a private terrace or a balcony. Yuvaraja suites are somewhat more spacious with an integrated living area, Maharaja suites have a separated living area. Single rooms are double rooms for single occupany.

Dining & Leisure

The traditional restaurant „Oottupura“ offers Ayurveda meals (vegetarian) as well as regional Indian dishes, but also European and Chinese cuisine with freshly caught fish from the nearby Lake. The open air restaurant „Prakruthi“ by the pool specialises in candle light dinners.

Health & Ayurveda

The Ayurveda Centre with an Ayurveda Beauty hospital and an Ayurveda shop has been honored with the „Green Leaf Award“, the highest honor of Kerala for authentic Ayurveda facilities. Moreover, the resort received the "Ayurveda SPA Europe Certificate" of the European Insitute of Wellness & SPA (incorporated society) amongst other things for its professional Ayurveda, customer orientation and the good price performance ratio.

The treatments are carried out by an experienced and professional team of Ayurveda doctors and therapists. The classic Ayurveda cure / rejuvenation therapy serves for regeneration purposes of the body, soul and the spirit, for strengthening the immune system and can help to achieve a better health and a longer life. The central focus is onstress management, weight reduction and life balance. For an optimal success of the Ayurveda cure it is recommended to stay for 2 to 3 weeks, better even for 4 weeks. Noticeable results can already be experienced after the first week of treatments.

The daily Yoga and meditation programme will be conducted by a traditionally trained Yoga teacher.

Arts and dance evenings as well as Kathakali performances (traditional Kerala dance theater) belong to the standard evening animations (seasonal).
