Swaztha Ayurveda Retreat is an Ayurveda Hospital from Chempenkulam Ayurveda Pharma which was established in 1968 by C A Gopi Vaidya. Chempenkulam Ayurveda Hospital is famous in Kerala and well known for authentic ayurvedic treatments.

I had a visit to Chempenkulam Ayurveda Pharma’s Swaztha Ayurvedic hospital yesterday during my trip to Thekkady. My main intention was to find out the real authentic massage centers in Thekkady and Kumily area. There are plenty of massage parlors, spa’s and other wellness clinics in Thekkadi to mislead tourists. Commission business is spoiling the tourism in Thekkady now. The drivers and guides are taking the tourists only to the places who offer a high commission to them.

Kerala is the only place in the world who provides authentic ayurvedic treatments. And Thekkady is one of the top tourist destination in Kerala. There are only a few authentic and traditional massage centers in Thekkadi and one of them is Chempenkulam Ayurveda Hospital. It is located just 8 Km far from Thekkadi and easily accessible with your vehicle.

Svaztha Ayurveda Retreat is one of the front runners in providing authentic Kerala Ayurveda Panchakarma treatment and owes its success and credibility to a strong foundation of eight generation of Physicians. So if you are planning to go for a real ayurvedic treatment or massage, you can choose this. And if your intention is just a normal cross massage or body rub, this is not a right place for that. There are plenty of local massage parlors available in Thekkady area for fun filling massages.

Svaztha Ayurveda Hospital offers walk-in massage treatments as well as various long-term packages. The hospital is set in an expansive campus spread across ten acres of pristine greenery and herbal garden. The hospital is built with rare granite stones and followed the traditional Kerala architecture everywhere. The hospital is having 24 rooms in various categories. All the rooms are having basic amenities including Television & modern washrooms. Wifi Internet connectivity is available in the reception & restaurant.

The hospital also has a restaurant which serves only vegetarian food. Their specialized chefs will prepare and serve special authentic vegetarian food to suit your tastes and likes. One could eat enjoying the sensing aromas of natural herbs and spices abundantly seen just outside the dining hall. Those who are going for packages may have diet plan fixed after detailed consultation with the doctor.

I have found the pricing for treatments and massage here is affordable and will not be disappointing by any chance. The ambiance and the service provided by Svaztha are just great. A normal full body massage ‘Abhayangam’ will cost you just 1750.


They have a separate and unique ‘Panchakarma’ Center with an unexplainable ambiance which will make you feel extraordinary. The center is well equipped with all amenities to provide best results.

Their drug manufacturing facility prepares a full range of Ayurveda products for wellness and therapeutic use. Ingredients for the medicines are sourced from either the organic garden within their campus or from the virgin forest areas in and around the Periyar Forest.

They also offer a number of fun-filled activities to entertain the visitors who are going for long term ayurvedic treatments. These include a visit to the Periyar wildlife sanctuary, jeep safari, boat cruise, and elephant trekking. Also, there are those places where you can catch a glimpse of the traditional art forms of Kerala – Kathakali and Kalaripayattu.

  1. I did stay at Svastha Ayurvada Retreat.
    Your review is just ridiculous considering you have neither stay there nor followed any kind of treatment.
    So how dare you judge Pricing, Cleanliness, Service, Ambiance !!!

    My opinion is that either you indulge in a disguised Public Relationship deal for Svastha Ayurvedic or, preferably that you nothing but an imposter.
