there are two Somatheerams – but only one original!
Make sure you book the right Somatheeram
Somatheeram Ayurvedic Health Resort (the original) and "Somatheeram Ayurveda Village" are completely independent businesses. The resorts have significant differences. Somatheeram Ayurvedic Health Resort is run by a German-Indian management team with many years of experience in health tourism. This can be seen most clearly when it comes to the quality of our Ayurveda treatments and in plenty of other features that are important to our guests. For instance, our doctors are specialists in Ayurvedic treatment for western clinical syndromes.
As Kerala's ambassadors for authentic Ayurveda, we are entirely dedicated to the well-being and health of our customers. And this is reflected in our customer satisfaction levels.
The international service office for the Somatheeram Ayurvedic Health Resort, namely Somatheeram GmbH which is based in Germany, provides you with an expert point of contact for any issues, either before or after your Ayurvedic treatment. You can only book the Somatheeram Ayurvedic Health Resort via this website, or through our service office or through selected specialised providers. Bookings cannot be made via mass suppliers who are only interested in selling packages without any personal consultation or knowledge of the resort or Ayurvedic teaching. This is because we believe that an Ayurvedic regime must begin with an expert booking partner.
The other Somatheeram is run under Indian management and has its own very different philosophy. It has been rebranded on numerous occasions and also operates under the names: Somatheeram Ayurveda Village, Somatheeram Research Institute & Ayurveda Hospital, Somatheeram Beach Resort, Somatheeram Ayurvedic Resort, etc.
Whether it's on booking.com, or with TUI, DerTour or any other large supplier: if you find Somatheeram listed at these sites, it isn't us.
If you want to book the original Somatheeram, make sure you look out for our red S-logo and the name "Somatheeram Ayurvedic Health Resort".
Caution: please note that if you unintentionally book the wrong Somatheeram, we will not be able to arrange a transferral of this reservation. All attempts on our part to find a resolution to incorrect bookings in the interest of the guest are simply refused on the part of the other company's management. Confusing guests appears to be part of their business model.
