Video of Dr. Franklin's Ayurveda Resort
The film shown below was made by Ayurooms in 2018. It offers a perspective on what the environment is like at Dr. Franklin's. It is important to note that Dr. Franklin's is not a beach resort but located close to the beach while offering Ayurvedic treatment that is comparable to Somatheeram Ayurveda Village, Somatheeram Ayurveda Health Resort, and Manaltheeram Ayurveda Village, all of which are located within close proximity of each other.
Dr. Franklin's Panchakarma Institute
Dr. Franklin's Panchakarma Institute is a budget-friendly Ayurveda resort in Kerala, close to Chowara Beach, Somatheeram and Manaltheeram.
Ayurvedic treatment near the beach
Dr. Franklin’s Panchakarma Institute is situated within walking distance of Chowara Beach, but offers two unique benefits: (1) its pricing is considerably lower than the beach resorts in the same area, and (2) it has a decent fitness centre (gym). Many people come to Dr Franklin’s for a long duration stay (typically three weeks) in order to undergo panchakarma (detoxification) or physical rehabilitation following an injury or accident. With respect to food, two things are particularly memorable about this resort: the fresh juices and the soups. In addition, for those who looking very high-quality accommodations at “economy” rates, Dr. Franklin’s now offers beautiful large villas with king beds and 5-star quality amenities. Very special rates are available for Ayurooms’ guests during the low season (April to September).
