Do I have a locker facility for my valuables?
Some rooms do have a safety locker available. But, we do not encourage guests to bring valuables. Since you will have to remove part or most of your jewellery while getting the treatment, it is better to leave them at home.
What food is served at Ayurdara? Do I get bottled water?
Since food is an imperitive part of therapy, the fresh vegetarian food served at our guest house is cooked according to Satvic Ayurvedic way, which will also help the ongoing treatments. We mostly use home grown spices and condiments for cooking. The price of accomodation includes three such meals a day.
Is it okay to go outside during treatment period?
We always recommend not to do sternous exercises or tiring trips during the treatment period. You can always walk around in the locality, Fortcochin is also very close by and so is the beach. But swimming in the sea is not at all recommended during the treatment.
What facilities are available in the rooms?
Two single beds, one spacious wardrobe, desk and a chair, bathroom/toilet.
Is Yoga included in the Ayurvedic treatment plan?
No. Yoga is not a part of our Ayurvedic cure. It is not mandatory.
