KOVALAM - Indiaís most spectacular beach resort just 16 kms. From Thiruvananthapuram (formerly Trivandrum), Kovalam is a sheltered natural bay. The settling has an illusory quality about it. A sheet of silvery sand curves into an arch that is bordered on one side by axure blue waters and on the other side by a sumptuous spread of green palm groves.

Breakers explode in white foam against the rocks in the Sea, while enthusiastic swimmers plunge even deeper into the waters. It is as though you have wondered into some tropical paradise.

As the sun begins to set , the colors of its finding flame blend with the magnificent masks & costumes of Kathakali dancers who perform the ancient dance drama based on the legends & myths of Hindu epics by the flickering lights of temple lamps in specially constructed open air theaters.

The sťances waterways and sleepy lagoons of Kovalam provides ample opportunity for swimming and other water sports. The golden sand stretching out for miles together and coconut trees swaying gracefully against the backdrop of the richly lured blue sky and sea, all add to make Kovalam a heaven on earth.

Rich with traditional culture and overwhelming natural splendor. The perfect locale for the perfect holiday resort. Somatheeram is on the picturesque Malabar coast 8 km from the renowned tourist centre of Kovalam and 21 km South of Trivandram , the capital city of Kerala. Set in the tantalizing environment of palm trees and bewitching blue water , Somatheeram is untouched by the ravages of tourism. Traditionally styled bungalows and cottages welcome you to a warm, relaxed atmosphere.

NIRVANA
Somatheeram, however, is a new take on resorts it is a retreat specializing in Yoga, Ayurvedic and Meditation treatments. It is where people go for meditation treatments. It is where people go in pursuits of mental and physical nirvana. If the first is virtually laid on via the golden beaches, the second comes via a series of soothing massages and herbal experiences at the hands of trained experts.

The resort comprises a series of buildings that seamlessly mold the most attractive features of old Kerala houses with all the mod cons so necessary for those who like their foreign adventures with a reassuring touch of home.

The cottages are sparse but very comfortable and a visual treat, with stone and brick interiors, cool stone floors, chik and rattan fittings.

The massage centre is vast hall with wooden trestle tables, pots of scented herbal oils at hand and smiling, efficient masseurs ready for the session ahead.

The food served at the retreat is designed to please all palates with sunny sides - ups and steaks as well as string hoppers, fish curries, palappams and meat curry on menu.

DISCOVER THE SECRET OF ETERNAL YOUTH
At the ayurvedic rejuvenation centre in Somatheeram. This exclusive program is based on the Vedic Science Ayurveda and is directed towards strengthening your immune system and preventing disease, the rejuvenation program for each individual is drawn out by the ayurvedic physician after a through evaluation.

The therapies are those most malayalis swear by the concentrated pouring of oils on certain parts of the body (Dhara), herbal massages (pizhichil), treatments involving plant extracts ingested nassaly (nasyam), steam baths, the complete rejuvenation therapy, and quite a few more routines, besides.

SYBARITIC INTERLUDE
Somatheeramís clientele comprises, for the most part foreigners. The resort keeps a deliberately low key profile and the Mathew brothers stress that is pure word of mouth that draws people to Somatheeram.

The resort has all facilities on hand from a centre for cultural activities, dance and martial arts classes, cultural shows, trips to places of tourist interest, like Neyyar dam, Padmanabhapuram palace, the Veli tourist village and Kanyakumari.

The resortís main entrance is in the traditional architecture style of Kerala . It is only a matter of time before the hordes discover this secluded retreat. Till then, however the louts-eaters loll on the beaches with waves washing up to the feet, breakers crashing out the distance and the wind playing a symphony on a palm front. This is a non Ayurvedic dose hedonism, indeed.
