Some years ago when my wife and I were checking out ayurvedic hospitals we were getting depressed by the condition and upkeep of ayurvedic facilities in India when we were told about Kalari Kovilakom. This is primarily an ayurvedic hospital in a beautiful, historic and green setting. The staff and doctors are well trained and although it is pricy we felt the time we spent there was well worth it.

it was a absolutely wonderful excperience. The people working there are so lovely & honestly. The massages are .....just wow....but the treatments are sometimes a bit hard. But at the end, I felt like a new, younger person.

Kalari Kovilakum is the ultimate place to take care of your body and soul. It is not a holiday destination, you can not leave the place while you do the two, tree or four weeks of intensive ayurveda treatment. But i did not feel like leaving as we where taken care of so wel! you have two doctor visits a day, two massages with medical plant oil, made in front of you, meditation and yoga, a park to walk and a great library. De cook makes for every guest a special, personalised meal what makes you feel great. When you leave Kalari after the chosen treatment, you know how you can feel and look. The cgh earth owners are realy taking care of giving the best of nature to all the guests. I will defenetly go back and wish a stay to everyone who wants to take time for themselves.

Guest (TA)

I have been practicing Ayurveda for many years now and visited a couple of treatment centers in India, however, I consider Kalari to be the best in terms of quality of accommodations, food and the most important- quality of treatments you receive. This was my second visit there and I has not been disappointed.

Guest (TA)

Am grateful to the CGH group for creating such a perfect place for authentic Ayurvedic treatment in India. It is expensive but worth every penny. The service is the best. The staff is extremely well trained & they are very courteous and attentive. Service is extremely personalized. The beautiful buildings, the comfortable rooms, the ponds and the tranquil gardens...all contribute to the special experience that we are here for. It's an ideal time and place for us to be with our inner selves and catch up on our reading.

Jyoti (TA)

Dont go here expecting a spa experience. This is an ayurvedic treatment center in an extremely beautiful setting. This means your massages can be tiring, and some of your treatments can be mildly uncomfortable. But at the end of it, you will come out happy, in peace and glowing.

Guest (TA)

I stayed for two weeks and was transformed. Never have I learned so much about myself and my body and how to provide perfect care for it. I'm so thankful I got to experience such an incredible change in my body and mind.

Very good and very nice place to start with the family in the weekend

Sudha, December 2017

Daily yoga and meditation played a pivotal role in with lots of opportunities to connect to my inner child, steamed apples for breakfast, kid-like yoga poses, warm milk being poured over me and toying with paints and paper kept me from stimulation which borders on the fringes of my febrile mind.
That being that, the whole package of quiet surroundings, yoga, meditation meant i fared rapidly towards my journey inwards.

Eli, December 2017

The changes that happened to me here are life-changing and mind-shaking. I hope to save the feelings and knowledge as long as I can and implement as much as I can. I want to thank you all, especially the therapists! It’s an amazing experience.

Alexy, December 2017

I have come to Kalari six times with more or less the same enthusiasm each time and every time I leave in top shape, all perked up and full of energy to face the life of everyday. In addition, this year the company of guest was very nice which added to the quality of treatment. Thanks to Sir Cherry, Dr Jouhar and the beautiful team that surrounds them. With warm regards.


Dear all, congratulations and many thanks again to all for the treatment and hospitality. I shall be looking forward to my 10th visit to Kalari Kovilakom! With my warmest regards!


It's just magic what they do with and for you. If you ever felt you have to do something for your health or weight... Don't hesitate! go here!

Deb, December 2017

The whole trip was a pleasure from start to end. I hope to return soon. Started planning my next trip there before I even left Kerala.

Prisca, December 2017

I came to Kalari Kovilakom with so much worries and totally worn out. I took the Rasayana treatment and, at the end of it I was feeling totally refreshed and rejuvenated. It was nice feeling to be here, totally away from all that is worrying you.

Kar, December 2017

Kalari offers unparalleled results for those enthusiastic participants who are ready to discover more about themselves while simultaneously reaching new levels of physical and mental wellness. I went there feeling exhausted, and I left feeling light, free, and radiant. The best part -- it's been 3 weeks since the end of my stay at Kalari, and due to some basic dietary changes and other advice from the doc, I feel like the health benefits keep on surfacing!
So if you want a health changing, life changing experience -- go to Kalari. You will not go wrong, but you can go right in ways you never imagined before!

Aarti, December 2017

By the end of your stay you would see that you lost weight, your skin and hair look better, blood pressure is normal and your mind is much calmer thanks to all treatments you received.

Larissa, December 2017

I have had several ayurvedic treatmen before and Kalari Kovilakam is by far the best. They practise ayurveda in an authentic, honest way. You can tell this place is fabulous from the number of repeat guests here.
Highly recommended.

Salana, December 2017

This is my third visit to Kalari and the first to Rasayana. Each time I come here, my experience is richer and the healing deeper.This is truly a unique place and I hope that it will always be here as my place to escape to when the world and life become too much to bear. I felt loved and cradled by every single member of the team here, as if you were all my mothers! I realized the value of making others feel special in in my life in an unconditional way. Thank you to each and everyone of you. I love you all and will see you next year.
