INNOVATIVE CULINARY EXPERIENCES

Cuisine

It is the tenets of Ayurveda, the 5,000 year-plus old Indian health science that guides us to offer you a fresh, invigorating, healing and restorative cuisine at ‘Aamala’, the resident’s dining room.

We are of the firm belief that healthy eating is definitely positive and transforming.  It is all about getting your radiance back and having your energy levels soar, not just losing weight and toning up the muscles.  Start a new way of life…

An all-inclusive dining experience provides for a fully immersive programme in which guests are free to focus on what matters most – getting healthy and feeling fit.   Healthy food can be very pleasurable and filling, as our guests quickly learn. That’s why they stay on track when they return home.

Our chef states ‘Eating according to your individual character, having a proper routine and  moderation – ideally portion sizes that fit into a fist – are the key ingredients for a great healthy life’.

The joy of preparing meals which delight the senses and are healthy is the pillar of the programme. At Aamala our chef prepares delicious meals using healthy and high quality ingredients from the world over – maintaining, and often enhancing, flavours.  A range of breakfasts, beverages and meals complete the selection.

I was at the Retreat during end Dec 2017. It was a great experience. The place has a calming influence with a long - nearly 300 metres riverfront. The Ayurveda Doctor understood my medical history and nature and then recommended the treatments. The food was simple but delicious and i could get the chef to fine tune it to my taste. The rooms were very comfortable and the most exciting part was the arrangement for in room spa treatments. There is a very nice amphitheatre where groups can have great fun. Also I think some performances can be organised there. Overall a most satisfying, relaxing and therapeutic stay. I am going to get my wife to accompany me on my next visit - which I will definitely have in the near future.
Serene getaway – my most rejuvinating short break – an extraordinary experienceRajeev S - New Delhi, India
The most exhilarating experience to enjoy the backwaters on a jet boat and then walk off the dock onto the resort lawn!! The staff is very friendly leading you to your room overlooking the pool and view of the river. Enjoyed delicious vegetarian food and unlimited massages on the balcony is calling me back!! My favourite was laying back on the hammock under the bamboo grove, listening to the music of the river and singing of the birds. Now my family is booked for same next month!!
Mesmerising Experience!!rahulp400 -Toronto, Ontario
I decided to bring in my 25th birthday in Mekosha and it was surely one to remember. Tucked away near the banks of a river, it served as a quiet & serene location, perfect to hang around & catch up on some much needed reading. I specially enjoyed the daily ayurvedic massages given by Shaiji & the food was yum! Got a chance to taste some authentic Kerala cuisine as well. What makes this resort truly beautiful are the people and the thought being setting up this property. Thanks for a great time!- Pallavi.
Great place to unwind.pallavi92 - Mumbai, India
I highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking to escape the monotonous routine and have an amazing time relaxing, away from all the noise, with a breath-taking view. The staff is super friendly and overall the hotel has a very relaxed vibe to it.
Loved Every minute of the stayHarry558001 - Toronto, Canada
Great place to stay. Small, cozy - what you actually need to be able to unwind for a quick three day break. The ayurvedic treatment was wonderful although I tried the first one with my typical sceptism!!! The food is - the way you want it but with a lot of local items. The lawns - small but beatifully maintained. The pool area, the riverfront - all of them just right. The room size is amazing - these are all actually large suite rooms with a proper setup for in-room ayurvedic massage plus a small balcony again outside. All in all a wonderful visit - to be repeated again.

Amazing ExperienceGurjot S - Gurgaon, India
I stayed in Mekosha for 3 nights and I have only good things to say about them. Mekosha is India’s First Luxury Ayurveda Retreat with unlimited All-Inclusive Wellness & Spa Experience. Situated in Trivandrum, the capital city of God’s own country Kerala, Mekosha offers a perfect solution to heal your mind, body and soul. The setting of Mekosha is such that it feels like a mini Kerala in itself. Numerous palm trees line articulately by the river Vamanapuram is reminiscent of backwaters in Kerala. Green is the dominating colour inside the premises and needless to say it soothes from within. Mekosha offers a holistic wellness experience by treating all your senses. Mekosha offers a variety of wellness packages around rejuvenation, weight loss and stress management. This includes various therapy sessions and varied varieties of spas and massages. A brief session with the doctor decides the wellness regime for your entire stay. It also poses a huge impact on your meal plan for the entire stay. Mekosha offers bespoke wellness packages and regimes to create a healthy transformed way of life. One may choose from a short stay Rejuvenation or a longer Transformation wellness vacation. This boutique hotel has 11 suites (all of the same kind), which corresponds to maximum 22 guests (when they are fully booked), a number which can be very ably handled by the adept staff of Mekosha. The number is important because a concept as important as wellness cannot be accounted for a large number of people without compromising the quality. All the suites come with a private treatment room and a balcony overlooking the gleaming swimming pool. The resort also has therapy rooms for oil intensive treatments. At Mekosha the rooms are rustic with sylvan interiors. There is no television and phone inside the room, but there is a Marshall speaker which needless to say is an audio treat. Also, there’s no wifi, yes your mobile network is all you have (that’s pretty good anyway). The idea is to disconnect and retrospect into your own life, indulge in natural retreat and work towards building a better lifestyle. They encourage you to sleep for longer hours, there’s no arduous workout session and no early morning yoga (that’s scheduled for the evening). Once you are up without an alarm, your day is planned. A leisurely walk around their whole property is a good enough physical workout when combined with right meals and treatments. The food you consume plays a huge part in wellness. At Mekosha all the meals are meticulously planned in order to ensure your body gets all the nutrients in balanced amounts. The meals throughout the day are planned well in advance. Another aspect that I appreciate a lot was that there was no buffet. You won’t find a lavish spread lying articulately in front of you. So no fancy Instagram pictures at Mekosha. Also, your meals are served one after another as in the starters come first and the staff will wait until you finish it and then only the main course will be served. The idea behind this is to keep up the appetite. Because people like me get full even at the sight of a buffet. I had a fulfilling experience at Mekosha. There isn’t a single thing that I can be critical about. I know sounds quite unbelievable but that’s how it is. The staff is generous beyond words. The idea that one could strive towards a healthy body by striking a balance among massage, exercise, yoga, mindfulness, rest, pampering along with the healthy food was a revelation to me. I took all the three Massages and I felt the relief then and there. I would recommend Mekosha to anyone and everyone who is seeking a mindful vacation around health and wellness. The team at Mekosha also organizes itineraries for local sightseeing in Kerala. You can easily combine both and have a memorable stay at Mekosha.
