Shinshiva is a perfect retreat with every day yoga classes in the morning and very good autentical treatments like panchakarma. The staff is very professional and kind. Food also excellent. All this at a reasonable price.
Once tried always return

Shin Shiva is a truly magical place. I have been going back every year for around 7 years. The staff are great, the treatment excellent, location and amenities are perfect. Yoga at 7am sets up your day. Food is pretty special and all freshly cooked as you wait in the food hall overlooking the Arabian Sea. I have introduced many friends who are now going back as well. I would like to see a changing of the guard in Doctors as the new young ones are probably more in tune with foreigners requirements, speak better English, and are highly trained in modern Ayurvedic hospitals. Maybe the older ones can still be in the background providing guidence but not the daily face to face consulting.
A well-kept secret...

I spent two weeks for an Ayurvedic detox at Shinshiva Ayurvedic Resort in 2017 and promised myself I would return two years later. This summer I kept my promise to myself. There are many Ayurvedic resorts and spas scattered all over southern India, but there's something special about Shinshiva. Is it the quality of the treatments, the medical supervision? The kind, attentive staff that makes you feel at home? The fabulously beautiful location, perched high over a coconut palm palmgrove, looking at the Arabian Sea and the traditional fishermen going out to sea in the evening? Is it the immaculately tended garden filled with an infinite variety of plants, flowers and trees? Other reviewers have mentioned what they appreciated about Shinshiva. But what they don't tell you is that many of their clients come back again and again, some every year. Others come to Shinshiva, try another Ayurvedic center the next time just to see what they're like then faithfully return to Shinshiva year after year. When it's full, there are no more than thirty-five guests at one time, assuring personal attention of the highest quality. I will belong to the group who will find their way back to Shinshiva.

If your priority is your health as it was for me, choose Shinshiva. The hotel is comfortable and authentic, the vegetarian cuisine, a la carte, fresh and delicious. The team of doctors competent, experienced. The therapists efficient. Go there during the low season, they will not spare their time, you will feel pampered. Last but not least, Shinshiva is the best value for money. My 8th visit to Kerala, my 4th experience of Ayurvedic center. I intend to go back there next year. Jacques Caradec, Paris.
Shinshiva is genuine!

I just returned from a 27day stay at Shinshiva. It was a wonderful experience overall. There were always doctors there for consultation, and the wonderful friendly staff from the therapists to the dining room staff, housekeeping and grounds staff. The resort overlooks the Arabian Sea, a perfect place to view the early morning fishermen as they send out their nets. The grounds are immaculately kept as are the rooms. The dining area is open-air covered with a thatched roof which I felt added to the ambience of the resort . The first priority of Shinshiva is Ayurveda, and treatments are planned for your specific needs with Dr. Franklin overseeing your special needs, implemented by the doctors on staff, from type of treatments daily to Ayurvedic medicines that they administer, again to your specific case. Mine is Rheumatoid Arthritis, so the my treatments were specific to that. From my arrival until my departure I have to say that I experienced a tremendous improvement. I found I was able to walk 2km wheras when I arrived I would be hard-pressed to achieve 200 metres. The pain level of my arthritis was extremely reduced. I have returned home with a supply of Ayurvedic medicines and a new love for south Indian cuisine. I've been scouring the local shops for ingredients to try and recreate some of the delicious foods that were served at Shinshiva. It was fascinating to learn what it takes to become an Ayurvedic doctor, and some background about what it takes in terms of study and practical applications. Dr. Arya is a beautiful young doctor with high ideals and a gorgeous smile, and totally approachable. All of the doctors there are highly dedicated. I am now back home with wonderfully fond memories, a much 'lighter' body in terms of the arthritis, and looking forward to relieving my body of the final issues with this horrid disease. If all works well, I would love to return again next year for a follow-up. In every way, physically and mentally, it has been an amazing journey. If anyone would like to talk to me or contact me about my stay, I have instructed the manager and head doctor that I would be pleased to talk to anyone. Shinshiva has my personal email address which they will share with you. Sylvia
