It is actually a hospital built in a resort environment for holistic healing where treatments are done through Ayurveda! We reached Coimbatore Airport from Delhi in 3 hours from Delhi. From there, it took us almost 1 hour 45 minutes by road to reach Kairali-The Ayurvedic Healing Village, which welcomed us with open arms in a traditional South Indian style and fresh coconut water we all know the health benefits of coconut water.
All the washrooms had special Kairali toiletries- Dant Manjan, moisturizer as well as sandal soap. All the products were very soothing, the toothpowder is made with special bark. During the stay, everyday was really very relaxing. We experienced different treatments like Abhyangam, Kadhikizhi and Podikizh. The former is an oil massage for relaxation and rejuvenation, the latter two are potli and medicated oil massages which are for weight loss and joint pains.
All the massages we experienced started with nice light head massage along with traditional music in the background stimulating our senses. Interestingly, no fan or air conditioner could be seen in the massage room which is surrounded by brick walls in red and blue. There are separate sections for men and women and massage is done on a wooden plank by two masseuses in coordination.
The massage is followed by steam in a wooden box. The food which we ate was very light, simple and made with Ayurveda cooking. Our morning started with water in different colours, Pathimugham, which was pink in colour and helps in detoxification and Neeranjali which was yellow in colour and helps in weight loss.
Though, we freely asked for a second and third serving but generally restrictions are imposed if you are there for specific treatments.
Here is what we had across different timings: Puttu with Kadala Curry and muskmelon with grape juice along with cut fruits Lunch 1: We got the opportunity to relish a special Sadhya thali on banana leaf which had 23 items in total. It was very fulfilling and yummy, yet healthy! All of this was made in a healthy way, even the dessert was made with gur and not sugar! Porridge, black gram, and chutney Dinner 3: Coming to the treatment of various ailments, according to the Tridosha concept.
Vata, Pita, and Kapha, the constituencies present in the body and balancing them for gaining perfect health is the main aim of Ayurveda as the chikitsa or treatment depending upon which prakruti a person is born with. They have beauty packages as well like the royal makeover package which is generally used by brides-to-be to attain the perfect glow.
Though, this is a healing village which means they cure ailments but anybody who loves a peaceful environment, wants to de-stress and relax and get as close as possible to nature should make a visit here. The place perfectly brings alive different peaceful elements - lovely coconut trees, water flowing from streams, fresh air, lovely hospitable people at Kairali, chirping birds, fountains, green arena and flowers! We also got to see some cultural activities like shadow puppet show.
So be prepared for a pollution free and stress free environment with beautiful green trees and flowers which will restore all your powers for you to become recharged and rejuvenated.
