Guest Experiences


I want to thank Dr.Mathai and every single staff member at SOUKYA from the bottom of my heart. When we first met, you told me you were going to rebuild my nervous system - and boy did you deliver!! My back, neck, nerves, & energy are all transformed and I have released the emotional stress and wounding I was carrying. The thing I did not anticipate and which I am most grateful for, however, is the shift in my consciousness. It is difficult to express in words but I feel a clarity and a connectedness to the divine in myself and the world that I have never experienced as an adult. These last weeks have been life changing for me and I now feel that I have the ability to bring forward my vision into the world as I enter the second half of my life.

Right from the reservation to the airport pickup and the stay in Soukya has been amazing. Our first visit to Soukya and we are absolutely in love with it. It is such a beautiful place, full of greenery and fresh air, even the rooms have mini gardens which are so refreshing. The service in Soukya is excellent including the housekeeping and the dining staff. Everyone is so welcoming and warm. The food here is delicious and the best part is its all organic which makes quality of food so high. The best part about Soukya is Dr Mathai and his team organization. The composition of Ayurveda, Homeopathy and Naturopathy is brilliant. All in all the therapists are the real magicians, their hard work gives us the results and hence biggest thank you to them and everyone in the Soukya team. One last thing is the absence of Tv has blessed me with so much fun time and memories with my mom and I will always be indebted to Soukya for that, Thank you.

What a blissfully wonderful sanctuary created with such loving care and vision by Dr&Mrs Mathai. We have been truly blessed to have experienced Soukya is all its glory. Our first visit but definitely not our last. The rejuvenating environment landscape organic, delicious healthful food, comfortable room, continues and helpful staff, not to mention the caring medical staff, doctors, therapists, attendants all contributed to the healing process. The offering of so many different national forms of medicine under one roof makes Soukya unique along with all else, rejuvenating not only body but spirit and mind. Heartfelt and immense gratitude to every member of staff who would have contributed in some way some more than others to the beautiful refreshing four weeks that flow by in this heavenly paradise

- Mrs Alexandrine & Mr Lukach (Ukraine) after 22 days of stay, 2020

I entered the compound of Soukya December 17th 2019 and left in 2020. My initial intention was to stay 3 weeks yet fate would have it that I ended up staying 5 weeks. Indeed my stay was therapeutic physically, emotionally, spiritually, socially. I came for medical treatment in full faith and trust in the process. I know that my journey towards healing is long term process and I trust that I am on the right path. Soukya philosophy compounded to its expert team of healers, therapists and general staff are so good, on top of it treatments are magical in that they are or seem harmless but have amazing physical and emotional impact. There is nothing not to love about Soukya. It is home away from home. My sincere thanks and gratitude to the medical team, the therapists, the restaurant staff who made me feel like a queen, the cheff, housekeeping, reception team and more importantly to the unknown faces who keep this amazing Shangrila running smoothly and beautifully.

The chapel on the hill has always been one of my favourite places that I go to when I need to look within. Dr Suja & Dr Issac have created through Soukya a beautiful harmony that enriches human & environmental health. I love the energy that Soukya has and will always treasure my time here.

- Ms.Pritha Kuruvilla (India) after 19 days of stay, 2020

Despite high BP and varied aches and pains, I was functional and so assumed all was well, I had always learned an allopathy for help. Then when COVID struck, visits to regular hospital became risky and somehow Soukya happened and I am glad it did. I had no clue that I needed the help I got. The doctors patiently explained the impact of the stress of my life style and why I needed to slow down. Excellent treatments, great ambience and the gentleness of the doctors and staff was made my stay here a lot more than I had imagined. I am grateful I have had the good fortune of having the experience. I am already talking to friends and family on why they need to check this out.

- Mrs.Menon (India) after 13 days of stay, 2020
