This was the perfect trip for our family of outdoor and health holidays. Ayurveda treatments, yoga sessions, food, location, backwaters boating, local temple tours and all around atmosphere was wonderful. Our child experienced a lot of firsts on this trip: first time experiencing backwaters boating and so on. This is a great hands-on trip that insists you take time to enjoy, relax and respect the beautiful environment of Malpe Beach. It combines great experience, authentic Ayurveda, support staff and a wonderful setting. Both excellent hosts and excellent professionals - Ayurveda Hermitage is a recommended place for those seeking health and holidays to to experience this truly unique experience with the good folks at Ayurveda Hermitage, Udupi! .

I am very happy of my experience. I did not know about Ayurveda at all. I found Ayurveda Hermitage, Udupi while looking for a place to get treatment after stress and especially insomnia. When I arrived I was really exhausted, but at the airport, when I met Dr. Sree, I feel reassured by his kindness and also liked the explanation he gave me about the local traditions all along the way from the airport to the centre. I appreciated the simplicity of Dr. Sree and the availability and willingness to share. Wish to come back again next year.

LApprehension........ !Anxiety.........! Travel stress.......!This was my state of mind upon disembarking at Udupi on Saturday 3rd Aug 2013 at 9am after gruel some overnight sleeper bus/road journey from Bangalore the previous night. Howewer the balming effect was immediate upon stepping down from the bus at Udupi.There to greet me was the reassuring presence of Dr Sreedhar Rao and his assistant-both equally mild mannered and thoughtful about all details. The mornings of both my 2 weeks at the hermitage was filled with discussions demonstrations and guided practice of yoga and pranayamas conducted by Dr Sreedhar Rao personally Ayurvedic massages and related treatments as prescribed by were carried out both mornings and afternoons. Further sanctuary the well trained and courteous massage therapist was a hand.Treatment included diet eating healthy food in moderation! Evenings were filled with outings to scenic spots and local points of interest. I found the hermitage at its ambience more like a home.Even my onward travel arrangements were organised by the sanctuary.The two weeks were a period of both physical and spiritual rejuvenation. SEE YOU AGAIN NEXT YEAR.......!.
