"Once again ‘a thank you' to the pioneer in holistic healing "SOUKYA", wishing you recommending success and glory in spreading health and well being."

- Dharam Vir (India) October 2007


"This has been a splendid experience, though at 3½ days, too short ! My wife and I were overwhelmed by SOUKYA - the beautiful landscaping, the layout, the traditional and attractive buildings and above all the superb quality of the staff and the services. The therapies and treatments were all administered professionally and extremely well. But what attract us most was the attitude of the staff. They were, without exception, highly competent, professionally well trained, and extremely pleasant to deal with - helpful, willing, ever smiling, and ready to rememberor anticipate every need. SOUKYA is clearly a healthy family and for that, full credit must go to Doctor and Mrs. Issac Mathai and their superb management team. A very special word of thanks to Dr. Shubha for their expertise and attentiveness; to Ramesh, my lead therapist, for his outstanding services; to Ruati, my diligent and capable reflexologist; and to the always cheerful and highly efficient Geo of the kitchen staff for his kindness and for his prompt service. We leave SOUKYA impressed, uplifted and grateful. God willing, we will be back - for longer ! Best wishes to all at SOUKYA."

"Soler, serene and colourful ambience provide the background for a harmonious synthesis of peace and tranquility. People in this organization at all levels from the reception, room service, doctors, therapists - seems to be the greatest asset. Service with humility, courtesy, affection and with a smile enchants and captivate. A word of ‘thanks' is warranted to Mr. Jojy Mathew for his all round performance and prompt and pro-active response to situations. We also wish to thank Dr. Mathai and wish the enterprise he has built and prosperity and success."

"Hi to everyone at SOUKYA and thanks a lot. We had an amazing and wonderful experience here. We enjoyed our holidays together here - very relaxing, heavenly and very insightful. This is really heaven on earth and only because of all the people here. Everyone from doctors, to therapists, to kitchen staff, to house keeping person were so helpful, courteous, warm friendly and always ready to assist. Varsha, Narayan, Ashok at therapy was full of warmth always. Manu and Anish at kitchen were always there for our service. Jaya at reception was always smiling. The food especially was outstanding. Very innovative also. I learned some new dishes. Harish even made pizza for kids. So thanks a lot for all of you and we will definitely come again. These all happened only because of you. So special thanks to you Dr. Mathai for your guidance."

"We as a family has a great time at SOUKYA. Our kids including my 7th month old baby had a great time. We are very impressed with all the staff and the services provided by them especially the staff at dining and at therapy ever smiling faces. I have to make a special mention of Aneesh, Jobin, Shabin, Manu, Tiju, Geo who were excellent with their courteous manners and warmth good job. Please keep it up. Same in the case with both the therapists Girija especially Gayathri also who gave me treatment very professionally and nicely done and eveready to help out. Their smiles itself keeps us cheerful. Thanks a lot to both of you along with the guidance of doctors. You both did a great work. The whole ambience at SOUKYA is so appealing, peaceful and has been very well kept with the landscaping garden well taken care by Joe along with his gardening staff and the rooms very well (kept) maintained under the supervision of Ramesh along with house keeping staffs. I liked all the front desk personals too who were also very warm, smiling and helpful. Ofcourse it goes without saying that without the guidance and vision of Dr. Mathai & Mrs. Mathai none of these will be possible. So thanks a lot for SOUKYA. I should also thank Harish and Srinivas for their excellent cooking and demonstrating nice recepies. According to me SOUKYA = ever smiling, very cheerful staff, wellness, peacefulness overall good health (once we finish all our treatments). Quodos to everyone at SOUKYA. Thanks a lot doctor. I would like to write pages on praises about everything in SOUKYA but right now time is ticking so we move on better with bigger smiling faces. Thank you Girija for the therapy treatment you gave me. I was really impressed. God Bless. We pray to God that everybody remains this way SOUKYA at SOUKYA. Bye for now."
