Yoga is a way of life in India, and the same is true in Kerala.  We recommend four fabulous yoga and wellness resorts here...

Surya Samudra is set on a cliff overlooking pristine beaches and provides the perfect blend of chic, laid-back holiday resort with impressive yoga, Ayurvedic and spa credentials.  Their therapists are trained in Yoga, meditation, authentic Thai and Western relaxation techniques and traditional Asian therapies like reflexology.

Carnoustie Ayurveda & Wellness Resort is set on the shores of the Arabian sea, just 8 kms away from the world famous backwaters of Alappuzha, with luxurious all-villa accommodation that's meticulously designed for a restorative and rejuvenating escape.  Offering selection of Ayurvedic programmes including detox, weight loss, rejuvenation and anti-stress.

Neeleshwar Hermitage is a rejuvenating beach eco-resort, far removed from the pressures of everyday living, with a wonderful Ayurvedic spa.  There are 16 cottages, all very private and comfortable, modelled on traditional Indian fishing huts. Neeleshwar offers fabulous holidays for yoga, and detox, and you can also indulge in cookery classes and learn the famous Malabar Cuisine recipes.

Kalari Kovilakom is set in the foothills of the Annamalai mountains.  The Yoga here concentrates on slow, focused stretches in the Bihar School of Yoga’s Satyananda style. When you’re not having a treatment, wander the grounds, read in your room, go for a walk in the nearby paddy fields or commission the tailor to copy some of your favourite pieces of clothing.  Yoga is integral to the many Ayurvedic wellness programmes at Kalari Kovilakom.

Other wellness resorts in India with wonderful yoga programmes

  • North of Kerala, in the state of Karnataka, we recommend the beachside resort of Swa Swara, or - if you prefer a bit more luxury - we would recommend Shreyas, a charming Relais & Chateaux retreat centre about an hour from Bangalore.
  • Alternatively, you could head much further north into the foothills of the majestic Himalayas and stay at the multi award winning Ananda Spa
