A case could be made that a hotel’s most fundamental duty is to take care of its guests — not merely to accommodate, or to serve, but to provide strangers in a strange land with the luxury of being looked after by others. Few hotels, however, are as explicitly, steadfastly concerned with the wellbeing of their guests as Kairali — The Ayurvedic Healing Village. In the simplest terms, it’s a collection of thirty cottages scattered across fifty acres of Kerala countryside. But to think of Kairali as just a place to stay is to miss the point. More than a hotel, it’s a retreat and a wellness center, a place to go to cure what ails you, even if that’s just a little tension in the shoulders from too much time hunched over a screen.
Kairali employs a staff of Ayurvedic experts — dietitians to customize meal plans to the health needs of each guest, masseuses well practiced in traditional Ayurvedic technique, yoga and meditation instructors. For the most open-minded amongst its visitors, there are even astrologers, numerologists and palmistry experts; for the rest of us, a regimen of strolls through the countryside, relaxing massages and dips in that greenery-shaded pool are enough to lower the blood-pressure. And when it’s time to get the heart racing again, there’s also a recreation center with badminton, a jogging track and tennis court.
The setting, too, is restorative. Kerala’s misty mountains, rolling green hills and tropical coastline are among the most beautiful landscapes in a country with a vast range of beautiful landscapes, and Kairali, in the foothills of the Western Ghats, lives up to the area’s idyllic reputation. The property is a mix of lush jungle greenery, soaring palms, rivers and paddy-fields, with lots of space to explore.
The property is also home to the hotel’s gardens, which supply organic veggies for healthful meals, as well as rare medicinal herbs used in Ayurvedic medicine. When it all starts to feel a little too wholesome, you can always retreat to your simple cottage in the jungle to wallow in the AC and stare at a television. This is meant to be a relaxing retreat, after all, not an extended guilt-trip about the habits you learned back home.
