Location & Climate

Somatheeram is situated on the picturesque Malabar Coast in the southern Indian state of Kerala. The location is just 30 minutes or 21 kilometres from Trivandrum (Thiruvananthapuram) International Airport. The resort itself is situated right by the sea – far removed from mass tourism, in the peaceful neighbourhood of the village of Chowara.

Kerala is India’s southernmost state – and, with its tropical forests, probably the greenest as well. The area is regarded as an exciting travel destination because of its flora and fauna, palaces, temples, traditional villages, national parks, paddy fields and tea plantations. Romantic houseboat trips into the famous backwaters are a special attraction here.

Somatheeram Ayurvedic Health Resort 

Kerala is close to the equator, so the climate is pleasant all year round. The year can be divided roughly into three seasons:

Summer: March to May

From March, the temperatures rise steadily and peak in May with an average temperature of 30°C. During these months, precipitation declines and in May it rarely rains at all.

Monsoon: June to October

Humidity is high with temperatures of about 29°C. According to traditional teachings, this period is highly recommended for Ayurvedic treatment as the climatic conditions enhance treatment and intensify its effect.

Winter: November to Februar

Because of their temperate climate, these months are regarded as the high season. Low humidity and little rain are coupled with pleasant temperatures of about 24°C.
