an understatement.

greenery gladdening the heart as the rain and the breeze smoothens your senses-
the great escape began well.

Spread over 60 acres amidst vibrant and varied flora are the
30 villas, each uniquely planned to follow the principles of Vaastu and birth
stars. Simple cottages with modern amenities reflect the time of your life you

in a resort format begins with a visit to the ayurvedic doctor. From a simple
detox therapy, weight reduction, to lifestyle ailments or chronic diseases-
patients from across the globe come to the retreat seeking solution. And the
doctor suggests a therapy that is a combination of yoga and meditation, ayurvedic
massages, medicines, diet. While a stay for simple detox can be for four days,
there are guests staying for a month and more aiming for a complete rehaul of
their body for better. For complex ailments, it is the doctor who decides the
requisite period of the stay. The day at Kairai begins at 6 am with yoga; for
those of us leading a sedentary life where all the excitement that we have is
work and related stress, this is the perfect beginning to a day. A quick to
intense session will leave you hungry and refreshed. The restaurant has a
surprise in store for you. A glass full of fresh juice, diced fresh fruit
followed by healthy breakfast bereft of spices and oil is what your body needs, and with so much of goodness happening around
you, one gets used to this simple and organic food. The lunch and dinner too
are limited affair, with some wonderfully cooked curries, yummily tossed
salads, pkulkas and steamed red rice. In fact, Gita Ramesh, Jt. Managing Director,
has written a book of recipes that goes on to prove that healthy food can be
tasty too.

Panchakarma, Abhyangana, Shirodhara and many such treatments
come next. Expert masseurs, separate facility for women, scientific approach
and the goodness of Kerala Ayurveda ? combine to give the best of the

qualified and experienced doctors that makes one feel safe and emerges out of
it in a bliss.

Every evening there is a meditation session for the guests/
patients. Kairali also organises nature trails; one can visit the herbal garden
or just loiter around the serene and beautifully landscaped grounds, play
tennis, take a dip in the pool, enjoy reading a book in the library, play
indoor games or just get on to a hammock and enjoy the view of the sky playing
hide and seek with the tall coconut trees. Interestingly, one saw young kids
enjoying their time getting acquainted with nature and its many wonders.

As the day winds up, and the noises of the night
begin to make their ways in, and you head back to your room satiated and serene
? you wonder about the busy life you have left behind and wish the Kairali
experience lasts longer.”
