Ayurveda Spa Palace, Palakkad

Experience Ayurvedic wellness programs, relish organic vegetarian food in a redone century old palace.

INTRODUCTION

Luxury comes in many forms but this is one of the more unusual ones. A beautiful century old palace with every detail customized for the guests who have to get up at 5.30 am, are not allowed to wear their own clothes or step outside the palace grounds and follow a strict Kerala ayurveda regimen.

Ayurveda Spa Palace, near Palakkad has been an unusual place right from the start. It was born out of an act of rebellion. Tired of fights with her uncle-the King, a young princess of the Vengunad dynasty in Palakkad decided to set up an independent household. By all accounts, she was a determined young lady and she did succeed in setting it up though it was unheard of in those days. The women-only palace flourished and patronized artists, dancers, musicians and writers. In later years, the Palace passed onto a Prince who added a new wing as he had many European friends who came visiting.

SPA AND WELLNESS

Today the palace is a wellness spa, a Kerala ayurveda hub with a great degree of personalization. The Kerala ayurveda treatments are targeted towards anti-ageing, anti-stress and general rejuvenation. As soon as the guests arrive, they are given pure cotton clothes and asked to keep away their leather footwear, mobiles and laptops. After a thorough discussion and examination, the Ayurvedic doctor decides on the vegetables, spices and herbs for each guest. These guidelines are passed on to the head chef who prepares a personalized menu that has to be approved by the doctor. Each guest eats a different meal . Even the herbal water is different for each guest. Similarly, the medicines, massages and other treatments are also personalized. The minimum stay is 14 days during which the guest is requested to stay within the palace grounds. The only common aspect for guests is the early wake-up and bed times, yoga sessions and evening cultural programs.

ROOMS

The palace has 18 suites and is set in 7 acres of greenery. The large suites are of two styles – the older heritage style and the newer colonial style. A striking feature of the old wing is the tiled floors with different patterns in each room. The suites are aesthetically furnished with large comfortable beds, antiques and large modern bathrooms. All the suites open onto a common verandah. Apart from the airy verandah, there is a library, two yoga areas and two ponds. Many of the Kerala ayurveda medicines are made on site with herbs from the gardens. Guests are welcome to watch the process. The staff is very friendly and open to questions and requests.

SERVICE

Food is prepared in a traditional kitchen using organic vegetables and a minimum of oil and spices.  Vessels made of brass, copper and even stone are used for preparation of food. Although simple vegetarian fare, the food is tasty. When guests leave, they are given recipes from their personalised menu on a CD with the hope they would continue with the Kerala ayurveda treatment they were receiving here.

Although it may sound like a tough Kerala ayurveda regimen, most guests settle in by the third day and enjoy the break from modern life. Many of them come back after a year or two for repeat Kerala ayurveda treatments as the mental and physical wellbeing at the end of such treatment is unbeatable.

    After searching many different rejuvenation centers, I chose Kalari Kovilakom. They seemed very authentic and to produce results. Also they insist on 14 -21 days. But you don\'t realize time flies at Kalari. Everyday yoga and doctor consultation and massages and evening program. The day is over. I have lost weight, my skin is clearer and I feel twice better. 2-3 days to adjust to the food and medicines but then not so hard. Nice people at the spa. Very big rooms and beautiful old antiques.
