We came to Dr.Franklin Research Centre Hotel for the second time. In comparison with previous visit in Dec.2012 the hotel territory has become larger and more beautiful - many trees, exotic plants. But at the same time there were a lot of guests. Center had several room types. We chose small villa in the new territory and it was nice. The treatment was as well as the last time effective. And Chowara is lovely place - good people, ocean, Kovalam beach and Trivandrum just near, everyday morning yoga, tasty useful food. So we had good rest and recovery.

Recommendation if you are looking for serious Ayurvedic treatments. We visited a couple of other Ayurveda-places in Kerala after our one week stay at Dr.Franklin and looking back it would have been a much better option for us to book 2 or 3 weeks at Dr.Franklins, but even one week was a big benefit for our health. This is not a Spa-Hotel, its a clinic for Ayurveda treatments, actually its a hospital. (10% tax only, no smoking, no alcohol and no outside food are allowed on the premises). We paid approx. Euro 110,- per person/day which included our stay in a deluxe room NON A/C double, all doctors consulations, ayurvedic medicines, 2-3 hours of GREAT treatments daily by 2-3 therapists, full board (bland but fresh Ayurvedic diet) and incl. 10% govt tax but excluding tipps (think of the very low wages all the staff earns, and show them that you were happy,...) The consulitations with Dr.Sony and Dr. Udayasankar differed from what we are used to in western medicine. We are used to be told what our health issues are and not to be asked about them so to us it was good start to feel self responsible for our health and body when doing Ayurveda. My partner and me felt very good taken care of, especially on "cleansing day" when the nurses checked several times on us to see how we were doing. The treatments by "my" team of experienced therapists Maya, Preetha and Simy were highly professional and never embarrassing. In the past 30 years Ive had around 350 massages (low estimate) and the treatments at Dr.Franklins were some of the BEST I have ever experienced. Not all of the treatments are sheer pleasure, sometimes its bodywork, but some are just sooo wonderful! The synchron massages were so synchron that I had to blink occassionaly to see whether there were really two women and not only one with four hands. My partner had a very good team of 3 male therapists during that week and was also positivly surprised by the high standard of alle treatments. Some of the therapie rooms face the street, but since each day I was in another room the one time out of seven I could easily take in some traffic noise. Some of the rooms are quiet pleasant and airy, and of course- all were clean, only one room at ground floor would have needed new paint urgently. The food is always fresh but bland for dietiary reason. The chef is able to cook tasty food, which we were lucky to sample on December 31st for lunch which was sort of "cheating day" (all foods without Pita/Kapha/Vatha labels and some were deep fried). Service in the restaurant was a bit slow and the motivation a bit low, but generally the staff is polite, helpful and friendly. Breakfast menue gives you plenty of options, but still quite limited to Ayurvedic diet, lunch and dinner buffets. I considered the booking process with Dr. Franklins very professional, I contacted them directly via Email and received quick responses to all my requests. Free pick up from the airport was included since we stayed for one week, that was convinient, too. Our deluxe room non A/C Nr.701 on ground-floor of the new tract was spacious, stayed cool during the heat of the day without A/C and had a big bed with good mattress and a mosquitoe net. (A/C on demand, extracharge). Good water pressure and reliable hot water supply. 701 is located next to the pool and at the edge of the premisses so it felt more private since nobody had to pass by, when we were sitting on our balcony. The room is in the newer tract of the hotel, so you will have to cross the small street to get to the main part of the hospital. The little street is not busy, but if you are embarrassed passing a few shopowners, rickshaw drivers and trespassers I suggest to stay in the "old part. The locals couldnt care less, they see the patients walk by each day :) The hotel is just 15 minutes walk to the beach, but going in the sun is ususally not recommended while doing Ayurveda. Please be aware: the current can be risky, and yes: it is an INDIAN beach with all you associate it with Since theres also a couple of sunbeds and umbrellas for rent at least that part of the beach is cleaned daily - and we enjoyed a bit of beach life :) The hotel is also located close to the "main road, but it's getting quiet during nighttime as traffic eases soon after sunset. There are enough shopping options in the little street dividing the hotel. The yogadeck located at the old part on first floor, iis nice and airy and overlooking the palmtrees, an open yoga class was held once a day at 6:30am which is a pleasant timing as soon as you overcome the jet lag. Yoga is for residents only and quite expensive at 500,- per person WiFi's relatively fast, but don't rely on it ;-) It would take very little and a 100% recommandation would be possible,... :) Unfortunately there is no staff during night to prevent unsensitive co-guests to jump in the pool or choose the poolside for phone calls during nighttime. The pool rules are on a BIG Sign next to the pool in English and Russian but some guests just ignored them. Rooms were clean, but don't expect "towel art work" and flowers on your bed ;-) Clean glasses in the restaurant would be awesome - choppy dishes no problem, but cutlery, glasses and plates should be spotless clean in such a place, we kept sending them back until we got really clean ones.A little more training and/or supervision (and/or payment?) for the restaurant staff would do good. We found tables often not cleared and tableclothes dirty, not to mention the floor, which could have been brushed at least 3 times a day in our point of view. No tableclothes and nicely cleaned wooden tables would probably be the better option. Lightening was to dim in the evening. Not a high investment and it would be a pleasure to go for the bland diet in the restaurant. And: Drinking coconuts should be on offer in the restaurant. Announcing the actual times for breakfast/lunch/dinner at the blackboard would have helped. We had our treatments during noontime twice - and only because somebody told us that lunchtime is until 3:30pm we went for it. The poster announced lunch until 2pm. And yes, things in India can be disturbing, but thats not up to the hotel, eg VERY loud music played in the neighbourhoodor burning of garbage (plastic).

This Ayurveda clinic I found on recommendation and Dr Franklin has the best price performance in this area they give you excellent medical attention ant herbal massages And what maybe the most important you can choose your program even in the high season but maybe the best time is October to Christmas as the heat is more becoming as you are on full board you can order from the menu

I have spent 3 weeks for panchkarma program. So it is quite impossible to describe the facilities properly. As a hotel i would award it with strong 3*** (considering local standards). As a place for treatment:- have nothing to compare with (never done this before), but I am quite satisfied with the results of the treatment. I wish I would get more recommendations during my stay, like: no one told me that i should not put A/C on for at least 4-6 hours after the treatment, whether some food shall be consumed or not prior to a certain type of treatment and etc. Sometimes it felt that Centre is a bit too marketing oriented... Otherwise everything was quite ok.

I spent two weeks in February 2015 at this wonderful centre! If you are looking for real, effective Ayurveda treatments this is the place to receive them. Many resorts in the area provide Ayurveda treatments but it is common knowledge locally that Dr. Franklin's provides THE BEST traditional Ayurveda treatments. The staff of this centre are absolutely wonderful, always quick and willing to please. Although not a luxurious spa/hotel, the centre has nice clean rooms & the grounds are lush and vibrant with plants & greenery. The buffet style food is delicious & suggestions are given on which types of food are suitable for a person's constitution (dosha). There is daily yoga class too. I loved the early mornings - a cacophony of birds singing & chanting in some distant temple or mosque. The centre is located in a beautiful part of Kerala. The people are gentle & kind. The centre is a 2 hour drive away from the tip of the southern-most tip of India (Kanyakumari) where 3 oceans converge to provide the most outstanding sunrise. I hope to be back next year.
