Kerala Tour Itineraries - Kerala Ayurveda Tours
The ancient science of Ayurveda, arguably the oldest system of ‘wellness’ still in existence, originated in Kerala and there is no better place to experience an extended period of Ayurvedic treatment than right here in God’s Own Country.
The majority of resorts and hotels in Kerala will be able to provide, or recommend, Ayurvedic massage if you just want to indulge in a seriously relaxing afternoon session during your tour programme. But for longer, more specialised, Ayurvedic programmes, we have a number of places which we recommend, most in the south of Kerala around Kovalam and Poovar. If you’re contemplating a week, or even a month, of Ayurveda, please get in touch and we’ll customise a tour plan for you.
