Dear Friends of Somatheeram!

We – the German-Indian management of the Somatheeram Ayurvedic Health Resort – guarantee to meet the specific hygienic requirements of your Ayurveda treatment within the current circumstances. Our extended hygiene standards are based on the current recommendations of the WHO as well as the local regulations on site. All employees are trained according to European and international recommendations and rules of conduct regarding distance, hygiene and the correct wearing of medical masks. All processes of the resort have been checked for hygiene conformity and are continuously adapted according to international guidelines. Due to our exceptional location and the open construction of sensitive areas, such as treatment rooms and restaurant, there is permanent ventilation throughout Somatheeram („open plan“-design). In some special areas (e.g. in the vehicles for airport transfers) we have additionally installed Hepa air filtration systems, according to the international recommendation as per Hepa H13 / H14. The infection control measures throughout Somatheeram are at the highest European and international level in terms of equipment, execution, and staff training.

I vouch for this as a physician (German medical doctor) and hygiene representative of Somatheeram Ayurvedic Health Resort.

For the Somatheeram Management
