Manaltheeram is a hotel in which you want to come back. Cozy small bungalows. Very friendly staff who are always trying to help you. The Ayuverdi center really provides quality services, and the doctors are professional and attentive. This hotel is a clean, tidy hotel with an amazing view of the ocean. It has great pool and prex yoga classes. The restaurant offers lots of vegetarian dishes, and there are also occasional entertainment programs. The hotel is excellent for rest and recuperation. The atmosphere is relaxed and very friendly.

Szilvia Bán

We spent 9 beautiful days at Soma Manaltheeram Beach Village. Everything was more than we expected. The staff was friendly and helpful and worked around the clock to serve us. We felt as we are VIP guests in a 10 stars hotel. We arrived at 4.30 am but they welcomed us with fresh flower garland and coconut water from the coconut. Our booked room was upgraded so we got a room with seaview. At the beginning we found that the food is a little tasteless but very light and easy to digest. Later on we got used to it and we just felt the benefits of these healthy food. Ayurveda treatments were such an amazing experience and to see how this traditional healing system works. We enjoyed every moment in this beautiful and clean environment. We definitely want to go back and spend more time there.

Wir reisen seit 20 Jahren nach Indien und kennen viele schöne Plätze. Hier an der Malabarküste im Manaltheeram Ayurveda Resort gefällt es uns am besten. Die ayurvedischen Anwendungen, das leckere Essen, die herrliche Lage und der Blick aufs Meer sind einfach fantastisch. Es ist ein kleines Paradies. Wir waren während der Covidzeit hier bestens gut aufgehoben und haben den tollen Service sehr genossen. Wir haben unser Immunsystem gestärkt, hatten viel Bewegung und Yoga und sind jetzt einige Kilos leichter. Wir können diese Naturmedizin nur empfehlen und kommen immer wieder (Translated by Google) We have been traveling to India for 20 years and know many beautiful places. We like it best here on the Malabar Coast at the Manaltheeram Ayurveda Resort. The Ayurvedic treatments, the delicious food, the wonderful location and the sea view are simply fantastic. It's a little paradise. We were in good hands here during the Covid period and really enjoyed the great service. We strengthened our immune systems, did a lot of exercise and yoga and are now a few kilos lighter. We can only recommend this natural medicine and will keep coming back

We did a 7-week slimming ayurveda package, consisting of a special diet and around 2.5 hours of treatments per day, plus one hour yoga every day. The treatments are intense, but effective, as I lost 4 kg. The location is wonderful, the food delicious, and the staff incredibly nice and helpful.

Ci torno da molti anni volentieri per la tranquillità del luogo, per le cure ayurvediche. Personale medico e terapisti sono professionali, cibo non sempre rigorosamente ayurvedico e la cucina rispetto agli altri anni un po’ meno curata per le varietà proposte. Bellissima vista sul oceano con spiaggia attrezzata Gabriella (Translated by Google) I have been happy to come back for many years for the tranquility of the place and for the Ayurvedic treatments. The medical staff and therapists are professional, the food is not always strictly Ayurvedic and the cuisine is a little less refined than in other years due to the varieties offered. Beautiful ocean view with equipped Gabriella beach

Отдыхала «не в сезон» две недели. Сервис отвратительный. В ресторане отеля постоянно ждёшь пока тебя обслужат. Пакетик чая черного несут более 15 минут. Я жила в бунгало, в котором кроме меня жили огромные пауки, комары, которые изрешетили меня всю, Сырое постельное белье, полотенца в пятнах. Аюрведические процедуры оставляют желать лучшего. Массаж Тераписты делают на «отвали», это не массаж, еле прикасаются к телу. Если бы я не увидела как персонал обслуживает менеджмент отеля -моментально, сиюсекундно, я бы поверила в сказку о том, что в Индии все «медленно». На мой взгляд клиентов ни во что не ставят. Не понимаю как можно сюда возвращаться. Единственный плюс-красивый вид, ухоженная территория, но за Две недели этим сыт и доволен постоянно не будешь на отдыхе. Не рекомендую.
