A Visit To Kairali, An Ayurvedic Health Resort.

Some of my friends had visited Baba Ramdev's ayurvedic treatment centres, where they stayed for a couple of weeks, got rejuvenated and came back.  My cousin said that it was very good.  Ramdev's centre is in Haryana which is too far off for us.  So, when we heard about this Kairali Ayurvedic Health Resort at Palakkad, near Coimbatore, we thought we will visit this place, first, just to have a look at the place.    We stayed there for 2 nights and enjoyed the village type atmosphere.  No traffic, so no air pollution, no sound pollution, clean air and good ayurvedically prepared food in their canteen.  They have got their own vegetable garden and use those vegetables in the canteen.

The latest amenities also were there like A/C and TV! So, I think we, city people, will be able to stay there for long.  Free yoga class was there and I did my yoga in the open with the other guests.  Went for a long walk with my husband early in the morning. It was very peaceful.  My son was happily reading some book, lying in a hammock tied among trees in daytime.  The staff members were very polite so, there was no tension anywhere. Good, experienced ayurvedic doctors take care of the treatments.  They have got walking tracks, swimming pool, tennis court etc. too.

Now, to some pictures of the houses where guests stayed for treatments.  Each and every house was in different shape (according to vastu, it seems)!


We saw names for all the houses like Moolam, uttaraadam, pooyam etc. The name of the stars.


This brick is porus.  I have seen these bricks used for building compound walls in Mangalore.  Here, they  have built houses with these!

Typical village look!





Look at the lock...so beautiful!

We used to sit here and chat...though just for 2 evenings!

Inside the house

The inside walking path

Dining room.  The vegetarian food was simple and  very tasty

We enjoyed our stay there.  It was just the three of us, I, my husband and our son.  We had a lot to talk to without any outside disturbance or work pressure.  Sat in the outside veranda and chatted a lot, watching butterflies and snails and some birds! It was a nice pleasant experience!

I like the ambience.Is ayurvedic treatment mandatory?Can we just go and relax there?It would have benefitted the readers if you had given the tariff for accommodation and food

Sandhya said...

K.PARTHASARATHY: Please click on the name of the resort. I have given their link. You will know more information about them.

Somebody told me that a number of NRIs come here for just relaxation before leaving India. You will like it, Partha Sir! Their vegetarian food is very good. They serve just vegetarian food.

This place seems to be interesting. I am not interested in ayurvedic treatments, but the ambiance is too good to stay for a couple of days. If the food is also good, one can happily relax there.

So peaceful, calm, tranquil and soothing surroundings, thank you Sandhyaji for sharing all those photos, can imagine the essence of those serene surroundings!!

Even if the stay is for a short period, am sure you enjoyed the most, even watching sunrise and sunset would be lovely experience amidst such pleasant greenery!!

Glad all 3 of you relaxed at Kairali, I'll tell my parents about it, it sure looks a good place to visit :)

Very tastefully decorated place Sandhya! The lock is still the show stealer! Great! So, it should've been a welcome break for you and yours!
I love to sleep on hammock along the beach and read book! Have never done that :(

So refreshing it must have been, to stay in such a clam and beautiful place. :)

The door looks so old and solid!

So neat and beautifully made, gives a peaceful feeling. Just the kind of place I would love to be on a holiday.
Thanks for sharing.

Usha Pisharody said...

Sounds lovely and looks heavenly. In my backyard I know :) :) My parents' house, in the same district has a similar ambience, being in the back of the beyonds, and so it really is as you say, an experience that you want to come back to!

Jyothi said...

This place seems really nice. I was on the look out for exactly such a place and also for someone who has been there. I am planning it for my vacations this year. It's so close to my hometown. Thank's for sharing.

BK Chowla, said...

We have similar sounding names for Spa and massage centres in Delhi.I wonder if they are the same set of people

Sandhya said...

MUHAMMAD ISRAR: Some very good ayurvedic doctors are there, Muhammad Israr. My dust allergy and Migrane headache got cured with ayurvedic medicine. It takes a long time treatment unlike allopathic medicine.


SM: Yes, SM!


KAVITA: This is a nice place to relax, Kavita. Every place is clean and well maintained. We enjoyed our stay there.


SAICHARAN: Yes, Sai, we enjoyed our stay here. Please ask your parents to visit too!


VAISH: Yes, it was a relaxed break for us.

My son enjoyed reading, lying in the hammock. He was reluctant to come out of it.


ASHWINI SRIRAM: Yes, the door and the lock is very good. I saw the same type of lock in the saree shop Sarangi, here in Chennai!

Yes, the stay was a happy one, Ashwini!


RUPREKHA: You will enjoy the place, Ruprekha and thank you!


USHA PISHARODY: I remember your pictures of dogs in the garden at your grandma's place. The area resembled this. My grandma's place also was like this in Udupi, with coconut and banana gardens. For us they are just memories now.


JYOTHI: Please visit, you will enjoy, Jyothi!


KRISHNA: Yes, very rarely we come across places like these. Thank you, Krishna.


BK CHOWLA: I remember reading that they have some branches. I have given the link.
