It would be fair and incompetent to say that every member of the "SOUKYA" staff, is warm, helpful, understanding and sympathetic. This is besides the people behind the scene who made the place beautiful, clean, appealing, peaceful and safe. To them all my warmest thanks. After having read some reviews, reports and interviews in newspapers and magazines about SOUKYA, especially the dream of creative, such a homeopathic centre, which was the dream of the founder Dr. Issac Mathai, I was extremely impressed by what a noble dream that serves humanity through the revival of man medical experience during the past ancient cultures which are so great and rich. The realization of Dr. Mathai's dream with the support and help of suja, his beautiful gracious wife, is a great achievement for the young couple and for the people who assist them.

"Dear Dr. Mathai and Suja. I entered SOUKYA not really knowing what to expect, hopeful, cautious and a little, knowing only that I wanted to heal my mind, body & soul. Upon arrival I was taken in by the charm of the surroundings. Everything that I have experienced here in the last 2 weeks has gone beyond my expectations and it grows on you each day you like it better & better! The warmth of the most senior to the most junior has left me amazed. Their love and dedication is a tribute to you both that you inspire this from those around you, says it all! Coming for two weeks on my own, I was a bit apprehensive and wondered if I would make it or feel like running home. I leave tomorrow with a feeling in my heart that I wish I could have a few days more.... The pampering, the beauty of nature, the care it leaves nothing to be desired! Above all, I am going home feeling refreshed my aches and pains all much better and a determination to change & to come back. Thank you all so much for the wonderful care, and this wonderful experience.”

"I am glad that my first stop in India was here. Its not a Spa, its not a design hotel and its not a hospital. This place is unique and reminds me all time how alike our countries are. Mexico and India shares a medical story and a rich heritage in traditional medicine. Not to mention the abundance nature. It's a shame that all "progress" of the world kill persons, but with place like this the hope returns. Maybe Dr. Mathai ideas would flourish in my country. I'm sure off that. And really hope it will happen. Thank for all attentions, your friendly hospitality, my cakes birthday and the massages. The Mexicans will know about you and wait the moment to share and growth together feeding the spirit of the world. Happy New Year.”

"We were looking for a place to refresh, rejuvenate and reenergize, found SOUKYA on the net and were charmed into booking the place by the pleasant and welcoming Sudha. Coming here was a most pleasurable experience. The environment with its trees, birds, lotus ponds, herb gardens and landscaping is beautiful and gives you a sense of solace and serenity. The Yoga room is the most peaceful spot on the place. Service levels of all staff right from reception to doctors, therapists, dining room, house keeping are excellent. It’s the attitudes with which they work that impress you. They are very pleasing, always smiling, motivated and passionate about what they do. The treatments are good. It’s a good place to reinvent and rejuvenate like that story of the eagle. We want to say ‘Thank You’ to the entire staff at SOUKYA. You have an amazing place, wish you all the best for the New Year and for years to come.”
