we hope you will be able to take advantage of your stay in Kerala to see and enjoy some of our local sights and traditions. Please speak to one of our managers for ideas and costs. There are many interesting places nearby. Reception staff can assist you but from doctors’ viewpoint, we strongly discourage any sightseeing as we have found it seriously and significantly disappoints the fragile healing process. We respect the client’s desire to explore Kerala as it is one of the 50 recommended destinations, but we must admit that many clients have partially and moderately lost the benefits of cure programme by frequent outside visits [ frequent = more than 1 outside visit within 5 days]. Food from hotels outside Aarogyamantra is not trustworthy and has ruined the cure process of many clients by food poisoning etc. We wish the best of healing your body, mind and soul and we offer our best possible medical and social services for achieving your targets of your visit.
Our dedicated management team can advise upon and organize cultural activities outside of the Aarogyamantra, for example:
a boat trip through the Backwaters

any other traditional music or art event
As mentioned, take into consideration that it is not advisable to do extensive sightseeing trips or comparable tiring activities while being on Ayurvedic treatments.
