7 reasons that makes your stay at Janesh Vaidya’s Ayurveda Village at Healing River unique compared to other ayurveda centres in India:


To provide the nature’s ambience to our guests we have created our retreat in a local village in Kerala, by the Healing River adjacent to the Vembanad Lake – the longest lake in India.

Personal care

Our professional team makes sure that each guest at Vaidya’s Ayurveda Retreat is getting personal care and follows the individual program designed by the physician.

Tailor-made programs

There are no ready-made treatment programs at Vaidya’s Ayurveda Retreat. Each guest’s treatments, oils and herbs are designed individually according to their present health condition after the first consultation with the chief physician.

Personalised diet

There is no common diet for our guests – The food we serve at Vaidya’s Ayurveda Retreat is not only gluten free, sugar free and animal free but also designed according to the Ayurveda principles, based on each guest’s prakruti (birth dominating elements) or vikruti (imbalance).

Nature therapy for mind

Our newly designed rooms, restaurant and yoga-center have direct view to the Healing River. All rooms have balcony /veranda facing the serene water and the green lush of the coconut plantations on the other side of the river, which helps our guests to naturally attain a meditative mind during their stay at the Healing River.

Complimentary activities

Free to join the educational or entertainment activities on going at the Retreat as: live cooking experiences / yoga / meditation / dance classes / creative workshops etc to enhance the participant’s physical and mental skills (schedule varies every week/month).

A holiday ambience

Although Janesh Vaidya’s deep cleansing and rejuvenating treatment programs are highly therapeutical and supervised by an experienced ayurveda physician and expert therapists without compromising the authenticity of traditional ayurveda, because of the hospitality of our dedicated staff and the relaxing stay in our serene village by the Healing River, the guests feel a holiday ambience during their health retreat.
