Cultural immersion is always eye opening… Perspective-challenging… And sometimes, life changing!
That’s a kind of healing, too!

So, in addition to soaking up the Ayurvedic treatments, cuisine, cooking classes, Ayurvedic training and personal retreat time Rasa Ayurveda is known for all over the world–we invite you to dive even deeper into all the ancient capital of Kerala has to offer!

Time changes all things, and Kerala is subject to the forces of modernization and westernization, just as the rest of the world. Enjoy the riches, the cultural treasure while you can, on your next visit to Rasa Ayurveda.

If you choose, upon your arrival at Rasa Ayurveda, we’ll help you find time for some of these valuable and extra-amazing experiences, along with your authentic Ayurvedic treatment. Let us hear from you now!
