Thapovan Heritage Home in detail

Your Holiday Destination

☀ The southwest province of India, Kerala, stretches along the 550 km Malabar Coast. Kerala offers impressive temples, breath-taking lagoons, lakes and canals. Kerala has become a well-established significant holiday destination for ayurvedic treatments.

Your Ayurveda Resort

Thapovan Heritage Home in Kerala stands out with its traditional architecture. The wooden pillars by the entrance and the panelled walls of the cottages provide an especially authentic ambience.
The resort is recognised as a health hotel focused on authentic ayurvedic cures and offers the guests a stay in a tropical, cosy atmosphere combined with high-quality ayurvedic treatments. For this reason, sustainability and environmental consciousness play an important role reflected for example in the use of pools for air-conditioning of the rooms. The traditional construction design supports the circulation of cool air as well.

How You Reside

The individual buildings with 31 rooms in total are loosely spread over the area which stretches from a hill to the Arabian Sea. The resort is divided by a small alley. The upper part (Hillock Property) offers 13 rooms. Old House, a 90-year-old, traditionally constructed Kerala house. Hide Out Rooms with a view onto the fruit garden and a shared terrace.

Dining

The restaurants located in the upper part of the resort offer marvellous views onto palm trees and the sea. In the Ayurveda restaurant, vegetarian-ayurvedic dishes are served. In the second restaurant, local and international dishes are on offer. A healthy lifestyle is additionally supported by the use of organic food ingredients.

Ayurveda Centre

The Ayurveda Centre is situated directly by the beach and has been awarded the „Green Leaf Certificate“ for Ayurveda by the authorities of Kerala. The center places a lot of value on authenticity and effectiveness of the treatments. The two experienced ayurvedic doctors are supported by a team of 22 professional therapists. 11 separate treatment rooms.

Please note:


As stated by the hotel, a street which is used to access the site designated for a planned port project and to carry out construction works is being built. For this reason, the beach is not accessible to the hotel guests anymore. Increased noise level, especially in the Beach Property cannot be excluded. The hotel offers free shuttle service to the nearest accessible beach.

    ‘Ayurveda cure’ Translated by Google

    show more

    • Hotel in general
      The Thapovan has been valued by both Indians and foreigners for more than 20 years under the expert guidance of Andreas Heitmann. As managing director, he managed to work with the outstanding Ayurvedic doctor. Anand and the equally outstanding team of therapists to gather experts who are second to none. Such savvy professionals did not meet me during the cures in Sri Lanka.
    • Cuisine
      In Thapovan it is also special: depending on the Dosha of the guest, he can choose from a large variety. Freshly prepared, it is then presented by knowledgeable waiters appetizing. Sitting on the airy terrace, as a guest 'only' the happiness of enjoyment remains. This certainly contributes to the success of the cure.

    ‘I have recovered so well myself never, at any time’ Translated by Google

    An extremely pleasant mix of well-being (due to applications, food, friendliness) and getting to know a foreign culture (concerts, theater, dance visits, walks, shopping, excursions in the area) show more

    • Hotel in general
      Fantastic location (Hillock Property, Beach Property, I stayed in both areas), very clean rooms and wonderful, well kept fine gardens, by proximity to Trivandrum poss. To take part in cultural events, beach not but available daily shuttle to Kovallam.
    • Service and hospitality
      The entire staff was extremely friendly and always had an open ear. Requests were immediately and promptly fulfilled. You were always greeted with a smile.
    • Cuisine
      Two extensive menus to choose from - the ayurvedic and a "normal". All dishes were freshly prepared and you could taste and feel. The buffet on New Years Eve, the menu at St. Evening - a dream! Special requests (for example, less spicy) was always received.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      Ayurveda department: Very capable and friendly staff, fantastic applications, it took a lot of time, quiet atmosphere, experts at work
    • Treatments and programmes
      fantastic yoga classes with a very efficient and flexible yoga instructor who really knows his job. Could very well adapt to needs above skills.
