We recommend two fabulous destinations in the state of Kerala; both are ideal for a detox and other wellness and rejuvenation programmes.
The superb spa at Surya Samudra is infused with timeless therapeutic traditions from around the globe. The therapists have mastered Ayurveda, the ancient Indian healing system, and are trained in Yoga, authentic Thai and Western relaxation techniques and traditional Asian therapies like reflexology. Combine your stay beside the pristine beaches here with a wellness package or an intensive detox and treatment programme and return home rejuvenated in body, mind and soul.
The minimum stay at Kali Kovilakom is two weeks, the time required for ayurveda treatments to have any real effect. Most people have a ‘panchakarma’, or general ayurvedic rejuvenation programme, when experts lead you through a safe and nourishing course of ayurvedic oil massages, detoxification therapies, meditation and exercise. Stress relief, weight reduction and anti-aging programmes are also available. See all Ayurvedic wellness programmes at Kalari Kovilakom.

Other wellness resorts in India
- North of Kerala, in the state of Karnataka, we recommend the beachside resort of Swa Swara, or - if you prefer a bit more luxury - we would recommend Shreyas, a charming Relais & Chateaux retreat centre about an hour from Bangalore.
- Alternatively, you could head much further north into the foothills of the majestic Himalayas and stay at the multi award winning Ananda Spa or the recently opened Vana
