Natural ponds, a herbal garden, fish farms, an organic agricultural garden growing local produce and animal farms are part of the very distinctive environment that Vayas can offer.

The word “Vayas” literally means rejuvenation in Sanskrit language, and we strive to provide our guests a complete rejuvenation platform for their body and soul.

Your daily meals would be 100% vegetarian, tastefully prepared with age-old recipes. Each day would have a session of Yoga and Meditation that would pave the way for self-discovery and inner peace. Before your eyes, you would see your body transform for the better and radiate an enduring glow.

Treatment Area

Rightly the core of any Ayurveda retreat, the treatment centre is best viewed from the residential area. Intricately designed with architecture characteristic of Kerala; it reminds one of a bloomed lotus flower.There are 10 individual treatment rooms, two therapy rooms and doctor cabins in the compound.

Grown over acres of naturally fertile soil, these herbs are procured as and when each procedure calls for them.

Dining

Give your tongues a treat with the completely vegetarian, organic yet sumptuous food at the “Valley Green Restaurant”. This traditional restaurant is a communal place for the meals and the “dining area” is built in an ancestral mould with traditional artefacts adorning the place.

Each guest has to follow a strict diet and their daily nutriment will be served according to the prepared chart prescribed by the in-house Ayurvedic Doctors and Chefs. Ayurvedic manuscripts insist on avoiding close face to face interaction while eating food. Hence the tables are arranged in such a way that the diners will be seated at a distance from each other. This is to ensure that they experience and enjoy every morsel of food that goes into their system, keeping conversation at minimum. We strive to keep the standards of our food high; ingredients are mostly picked fresh from our farms or purchased locally. Needless to say, they will be organic.

For guests enrolled in the special package, Vayas offers customized vegetarian meals prepared with recipes in use for more than centuries. It is situated right in the middle of the cottages and is easily accessible anywhere from the residential area.
