Somatheeram was founded by two brothers. The Manaltheeram resort was added at a later date. In 2006 they went their separate ways due to diverging opinions about the strategic direction for the resorts. At that time, Dr. Polly Mathew was the majority owner and he continued to run the Somatheeram Ayurvedic Health Resort facility but(…)
No, Manaltheeram has nothing to do with the Somatheeram Ayurvedic Health Resort (any longer). Prior to 2006 Manaltheeram did belong to us. Since that date, the resort has had new owners and it is now run by different management with a different concept.

The Body Immunisation Package is designed to last 28 days, but it can also be booked for longer periods. Any shortening of this time will have a detrimental impact on the sustainability of the treatment and, as a consequence, we advise against this.
The Beauty Care Package is designed for a treatment duration of 14 days. The therapies used are aimed at a profound and sustainable improvement in your complexion and thus need time.
The Beauty Care Package is a Panchakarma treatment incorporating those aspects of Panchakarma therapy that are focused on cell and skin regeneration. In contrast to wellness therapies, the treatments employed here aim to produce deeper and more sustained improvements in your complexion.
Yes, the Slimming Package is a Panchakarma treatment. However, in most cases not all the “therapies” are implemented. So vomiting and phlebotomy are only advised if this is absolutely essential.

Under 21 days the treatment would not have a sustained impact, consequently it cannot be booked for a period less than 21 days. If you want to lose weight as part of a shorter treatment, please(…)
