This has been a splendid experience, though at 3 1/2 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 Doctors for their expertise and attentiveness; to therapists, for their outstanding services; to reflexologist; and to the always cheerful and highly efficient kitchen staff for their kindness and prompt service. We leave SOUKYA impressed, uplifted and grateful. God willing, we will be back - for longer ! Best wishes to all at SOUKYA.

I had made the decision that I wanted to find a sanctuary to chill out and put "humpty dumpty" back together and it had to be holistic and ayurvedic. I scoured the world and zeroed in on Soukya. I got a couple independent references on Dr. Mathai. They were all excellent. So I was off to India to experience Soukya. I had high hopes but after four weeks - it far exceeded on every count - the panchakarma was dream like, the people dedicated and the place is magical. I left feeling fabulous. SOUKYA is now in my DNA and I will be there every year without fail - there is nothing more important than good health.
