What People Say About Somatheeram Ayurveda Village

I must say it was a delightful place. All the staff were more than happy to help, the room was lovely and clean and the treatments were great . No fancy music or calm relaxing European style treatments you can hear cars, dogs, and people talking the wind and the rain but they were authentic and effective and delivered with skill and kindness . The food was lovely even on my restricted non spicy diet and served in a lovely restaurant all open and cool breezes coming up off the sea. The hotel is set in lush gardens on the side of a hill lots of steps up but as you’re never in a rush not a  problem. You can also take the clock tower lift to the hotel below if you don’t fancy climbing up to the restaurant. Went out the local shops on my own and felt completely safe. Took a couple of trips as well. All in all a wonderful experience.
