WHAT IS THE STORY OF YOUR AYURVEDA RESORT OR HOSPITAL?

Revival, the wellness centre associated with Abad Hotels and Resorts offers holistic healing powers of traditional Ayurveda for the past 15 years.  The first treatment division started at ABAD Plaza in Cochin which focused mainly the guests coming for business schedules. Later then, ABAD started Revival centre at ABAD Whispering Palms which gave a new dimension to Wellness packages where Revival got equipped to operate treatment and Panchakarma packages. Following the same path, Revival expanded its operations at ABAD resorts in Munnar, Kovalam, Thekkady, Alleppey and Wayanad.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE DESTINATION OF YOUR AYURVEDA RESORT?

ABAD Harmonia located at South Kovalam in Trivandrum district is near to Chowara beach which is accessible by a 10 minutes walk from the resort.

Thus, a vacation over here for Yoga retreat and Ayurveda Wellness will also bestow the essence of experiencing the verdure of nature serenity.

ARE THE BEACH AREAS RECOMMENDED FOR AYURVEDA TREATMENT?

Tropical beaches are well recommended to people who undergo intensive Ayurveda programmes.
