Away from the crowdThe
Kairali Ayurvedic Health Resort

Rejuvenation may have a different meaning in the
dictionary, but in real life, one can feel the true sense only by experiencing
it. We got a chance to do that this summer when I, along with my family,
visited Kairali Ayurvedic Health Resort at Kodumb u, nestled in Palakkad
district of Kerala.

Living in Delhi, our daily life is action packed
like many other middle class families, with both husband and wife working and
separate needs of two school going children to be attended to. We have squeezed
in holidays to many a hilly spot in North India, like Shimla, Mussoorie, Kullu,
Manali, etc., during the children?s summer vacations. Still, we felt we were
missing something that a real holiday should offer. So when a friend suggested
the health resort, our expectations soared.

Just one hour drive from Coimbatore, and well
connected with all important places of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, and
Tamil Nadu, Kairali Resort is indeed well-located.

When we arrived at the resort in mid-May, almost
all parts of India were reeling under a severe heat wave. Set amidst 50 acres
of lush greenery, the resort took us to an altogether different world, far away
from the peak summer elsewhere. Blending comfort with nature, the resort has 30
villas made according to Vaastu Shastra, surrounded by lush green trees and
foliage of various herbs.

The resort offers Ayurvedic treatment for a number
of ailments like arthritis, spondilytis, sinusitis and migraine, besides aiding
weight loss, fighting post-pregnancy syndromes and everyday stress. It also has
beauty and eye care therapies. Vegetarian food and abstinence from alcohol and
smoking are strictly propagated. Also, the rare Valambiri conch is placed
around each villa to augment a healing holistic environment. The result of all
this is an assured gift for each guest ? the power to face the stress and
strain of everyday life. The experienced Dr. Chandrasekhar, under whose
guidance we were given an Ayurvedic herbal massage depending on our health
conditions, gave us great tips on how to lead a tension-free and healthy life.
The well-equipped massage rooms equipped with ?droni? (a wooden plank specially
made for the massage), and traditional herbal oils manufactured by the resort
at its own factory in Bangalore provide a really rejuvenating experience for
the whole body by toning the muscles, improving blood circulation and removing
toxins. The specialised massages at the resort include abhayanga (general
massage), pizhichil, navarakizhi, talapotichil, khadikizhi, dhara, nasyam,
netra dhara, among others. Then there are daily yoga and meditation sessions
conducted by trained specialists. Besides, the sumptuous vegetarian food served
to us at the resort was in a class of its own. We stayed there for eight days
but none of the dishes was repeated.

At Kairali, they believe, improper nutrition is
almost always the cause of physical illness. Only three-fourths of the stomach
should be filled with food; the rest should be partly filled with water and
some space should be left for digestion. The resort has its own vegetable
garden, and vegetables and fruits come to the kitchen only from there. The
resort also has recreation facilities like an amphitheatre for cultural
programmes besides games like chess, monopoly and carom. It also has a swimming
pool, a cycling ring and a badminton court. There is a spacious yoga room and a
meditation hall, besides a conference hall, library and cyber centre. To know
