    ‘Unforgettable Ayurveda cure’ Translated by Google

    We spent two unforgettable holiday Ayurveda weeks at Villa Velmarie in winter 2019/20. Our general impression was very positive overall. However, one should start such a journey without expectations. show more

    • Hotel in general
      The rooms are of course not quite German standards, but are quite comfortable. Each room has air conditioning, which helped a lot during the day, as the temperatures around 30 degrees during the day and 25 degrees at night were quite normal. It's just a shame that the country is so polluted. The area was very clean. All in all, we are very happy to have made the trip.
    • Service and hospitality
      All of the staff from the room boy to the manager were very professional and helpful.
    • Treatments and programmes
      The main reason for our trip was the Ayurveda cure. And it was phenomenal. The doctor was very supportive and helpful. In any case, we feel better and healthier. If you are only interested in sightseeing, you are out of place here. But when it comes to health, Villa Velmarie is the right place for you.
