Based on 'a resort within a resort' concept, Poovar Island Resort has developed 16 cottage resort called 'Ayurveda Village' at Kovalam Beach. Talking with media professionals, M R Narayanan, MD of Poovar Island Resort said that the highlight of the village is that we have 16 cottages which are made of mud and has insulated roofs and walls so as to keep the heat away and no air-conditioning is required.
According to Narayanan, spreading into 20,000 square feet, the Ayurveda Village is the largest ayurveda spa in the country. Also, it has a very big lounge and 10 treatment rooms. Accordingly, there has not been any dilution of the basic tenets of ayurveda and each room has water bodies, a private garden and enough light and air coming in so that Ayurvedic treatment could be carried out smoothly and efficiently.
The Rs.60 million worth ‘Ayurveda Village’ is an ambitious project from traditional hub of ancient Indian medicare. Admittedly, the Poovar Island Resorts concept came into limelight almost seven years ago when the country’s first floating cottages were launched in the backwaters of Kerala, and currently, there are 16 floating cottages. The Ayurveda Village will start working from Nov 1.
