Kalari Kovilakom Palace is located in the old princely capital town of Kollengode in the foothills of the Annamalai range, Kerala, India.

Nearest Airport: Cochin.

Nearest Railway Station: Palghat.


Kalari Kovilakom is the Palace for Ayurveda, perhaps the first and only one of its kind. Its face is the face of the warrior-king, elegant and expansive. But its heart is that of a sage, offering a deep healing, and a doorway to the union of the mind, body and spirit. The old legends are to be believed, healing is part of Kalari's very soul. Dharmavarman stayed on to found a kingdom, Vengunad, 'The Land of the Venga Tree'. And for all the days to come, his descendants held sway over these silent and green foothills. It was in the 19th century that they built Kalari Kovilakom.

Today, Kalari Kovilakom has been restored and recreated into a unique experience in wellness. Combining the healing experience of India's ancient medicinal system, Ayurveda, with the grace and scale of palace living. So is it a spa? a palace hotel? an ayurvedic hospital? an ashram? Kalari is beyond these simply because it is a little of all of these. The intent and purpose of Kalari Kovilakom is to give you a chance to start your life all over again.


At Kalari, every therapy is personal. Our treatments are customized for you by our doctors, often combined with yoga and other methods to provide deep healing from within and without. Every treatment is based on your needs and your ayurvedic body type. Even the food you're served is individual, with health drinks and herbal preparations that vary with your treatment.

Kalari Kovilakom offers ayurveda unveiled in its most authentic form. The herbs used are pure and freshly picked, usually from the herb gardens maintained on Kalari Kovilakom's own extensive grounds.

And the therapies are in strict accord with the ancient texts of Ayurveda. Through a combination of massages, herbal treatments, medicines, diet and purifying baths, the Kalari experience promises you a chance to see the world afresh, to be twice born.

We also offer General Uzhichil, Kalari Uzhichil, Dhathu Pushti Uzhichil, Padabhyarngam, Udvarthanam, Pizhichil, Dasamoola Ksheera Dhara, Kayasekam, Sirodhara, Sirovasthi, Njavarakizhi, Podikizhi, Narangakizhi, Elakizhi, Special Treatments, Anti Ageing - Rasayana Chikitsa, Anti Stress Programme – Manasanthy, General Rejuvenation – Panchakarma – Nasyam, Vamanam, Virechanam, Vasthy Enema & Rakthamoksham, Slimming Programme - Thaulyakna Chikilsa and Special treatments - a range of special localized treatments for stiffness, pain, wastage of tissues, Nerve pinching etc.


Doctors Shreelatha and Jain are qualified ayurvedic physicians with years of clinical experience. Our 10 therapy and massage rooms offer a complete range of treatments. Expert masseuses and therapists work with you from head to toe, bringing new life to tired muscles, bones and tendons. The healing continues at our Yoga and meditation centres, and even at the dining table.


All food is prepared in a full fledged ayurvedic kitchen, using pure spices and ingredients to create simple, yet delicious vegetarian meals that form an integral part of the treatments. Foods are prepared in brass, iron or clay vessels only. And Chef Nayaranan Kutty weaves his pure vegetarian magic with only the minimum of oil and almost no chilies.


A meal in Kalari's pillar-framed, breezy dining area usually begins with tumblers of lukewarm, herb-medicated waters, your serving being based on your body type and our physician's recommendation. This helps to prime the stomach, readying it for the food to follow. The highlight of the meal is next, a gleaming brass thali. It arrives covered in a banana leaf section, sliced to fit, and offset by rows of glistening katoris, or cups.

Working with your treatments in mind, chef Narayanan conjures up a harmony of tastes. A raw sprout and onion salad may be balanced with a creamy dish of the local bitter gourd. And a mound of the steaming, fiber-rich red rice could be complemented with a thick lentil and dry jackfruit combo. Whole wheat chapattis or dosas (Indian unleavened breads) could be served up with a piquant, low-spice sambar.


The air-conditioning, the luxury bath fittings and the four - poster beds will certainly calm you, but they shouldn't mislead you. 18 palatial suites that offer the experience of authentic palace living. The Old Guest Wing with 20s colonial Western-styled rooms.


Some other facilities are: Ayurveda treatment rooms, catering to 10 persons simultaneously, Ayurvedic beauty therapy centre, Extensive gardens growing Ayurvedic herbs, Yoga, meditation and chanting hall, Well-stocked library, Traditional Kalari arena, Spaces for music and cultural performances, Training and demonstrations of Kalaripayattu.
