I am reviewing the Santhigiri Ayurveda and Siddha hospital which is located in Kumily, near Thekkady in Kerala. I could not find that location on Tripadvisor's listing, so reviewing it here. There are several massage parlours in Thekkady, but I leant from a reliable source that all these places offer a commission to the drivers who bring in the tourists.... More

Visited the place with a couple of friends. However, the pricing is on a higher side. People are friendly and warm.

Me and my husband found this place, went inside to see, at the reception they explained which and what therapy will be good as per our requirement. We got rejuvenation therapy done over here, it was absolutely divine n mesmerizing.. I came out feeling so peaceful n light headed. It's a shame that we could get this done only once.... More

It may seem very clinical but wow what a massage. You must not be put off by the rather forbidding entrance, walk in and make an appointment. I had the special relaxing therapy (Rs 2,000 for 1 hour 40 mins). Two men gave the body massage and then there is a head bath and massage. The place is clean and... More

We had awesome massage. Place was comfortable and nice. Massage was done in pair of people so the pressure felt was equally nice and soothing

I can only recommend this establishment. Safe for women - women treated by competent young women, singing devotional songs while giving wonderful massage.

Don't expect aroma candles, saintly music and steam sauna fanciness. What it does have to offer is effective massages and really warm staff. Plus the amount they're charging is totally worth it. Expect a hospital like atmosphere but you will leave feeling far more relaxed.

This is not a candle lit, incense burning experience, it is a hospital, that said I received three massages here, all were wonderful. Communication was an issue so be aware to have clearly understood the treatments you are scheduling, ignore the mold growing up the bathroom doors, the staff is lovely and the treatment was effective. I would definitely go... More

A true skin therapy ayurvedic massage. Very considered selection of oils and a thorough scrub and wash at the end. Men will need to put their "bashful" away for this massage as it is thorough.

It was really good - hygienic, effective and very relaxing. After being cheated in Madurai and Bangalore, it was truly an authentic kerala massage.
