Kalari Kovilakom is a 19th century royal palace in the Annamali Hills in Kerala which has been restored to provide a unique experience in well being. Combining the healing experience of India's ancient medicinal system, Ayurveda, with the sumptuousness of palace living, Kovilakom gives a chance to start your life anew. Ayurveda, if correctly followed, promises not only a new body and mind but a deep connection with the spirit sometimes referred to as second birth.

Kalari Kovilakom offers 14, 21 and 28 day programmes. There are large private treatment rooms where guests undergo massages; other thearpies include steam treatments, flower baths, beauty treatments, herbal treatments and diet. This is an all- encompassing experience. Treatments are personalised to suit each individual guest, so no two treatments are identical. Therapies are delivered by expert therapists and the programmes are overseen by qualified Ayurvedic physicians.

Apart from the treatments, guests can practise yoga, take meditative walks in the grounds with their herbal gardens and fruit trees and enjoy healthy, restorative food. Nutrition is very much a part of the overall treatment, which regards food as medicine, with life enhancing properties. In line with traditions of the Palace, there are talks and cultural performances where guests and staff come together. There is also the opportunity for guests to watch and take part in Kalari Payattu, the traditional Keralan martial art.

Accommodation includes 18 Heritage Suites at Kalari - the Old Guest Wing has colonial-style rooms while the Palace Wing is in traditional Keralan style.
