Formally known as Somatheeram Ayurveda Health Resort, this is one of the first properties in India to combine a beach resort with a traditional Ayurvedic hospital. With its cascading gardens, beautiful landscaping, and location at Chowara Beach, Somatheeam emits an energy of peace, serenity, and healing. Several rooms offer an ocean view. Confident and disciplined in its approach to Ayurveda, the staff at Somatheeram insist that it is a resort for people who are “serious about health”. The yoga teachers at Somatheeram are reputed to be excellent. One possible limitation, however, is that the daily Ayurvedic treatments and yoga at Somatheeram tend to be shorter in duration than what is offered at comparable properties.
