Many tourists come to Kovalam to take Ayurvedic treatments. Kovalam has evolved as a major Ayurvedic center. We offer Ayurvedic rejuvenation therapies and treatments. You can treat your worn out body and energize the nerves and muscles through time tested rejuvenation treatments. (Experienced Ayurvedic doctors are at your service)

An Ayurvedic massage increases the blood circulation, tones up the muscles and dilates the nerves thus effecting a new lease of freshness and vigor to your body. The herbal and naturalistic modes of treatments act on your bones and joints. These treatments cure you of many illnesses such as arthritis. Yoga and meditation are also can be arranged. You can also take up a training program. These programs usually last for about a month. Kerala’s equable climate, natural abundance of herbal and medicinal plants and the cool monsoon season (June-November) are best suited for Ayurveda's curative and restorative programs. Ancient texts recommend the monsoon period to be the best season for Ayurvedic treatments. The atmosphere remains dust-free and cool, opening the pores of the body to the maximum, making it most receptive to herbal oils and therapy.

We also offer simple oil massages for relaxation, while full course treatments last for about 21 days. The full course treatments include a special restrictive diet and a daily massage. Twenty-one days are the minimum recommended period for achieving noticeable effect. Depending on the time you intend to spend in Kovalam, you can plan small tours to places nearby. Here are a few guidelines.

 About Sightseeing tours by Bakers Resort

Peppara Wildlife Sanctuary - Ponmudi

An ideal package for spending two days. Peppara Wildlife Sanctuary spreads over 53 km and is accessible from Vidurai, which is on the way to Ponmudi. The sanctuary is host to a rich variety of flora and fauna. Nearby is situated the Peppara Dam. Covering the dam and the sanctuary will take you around half a day. Then move on to Ponmudi, 8 km from Peppara. Spend the rest of the day exploring the green winding lanes of the beautiful hill resort. Go for trekking the next day.


Padmanabhapuram Palace - Kanyakumari

Another package for a two day tour. The Padmanabhapuram Palace is 63 km from Thiruvananthapuram. Start the journey by early morning, say 6 a.m., you will reach the palace within three hours. Hang around the palace for another three hours. Have lunch then and by noon, continue the journey. You will reach Kanyakumari by 3 p.m. After a short nap in a hotel room, it's time to view the sunset. The visit to the Vivekananda rock can be made the next day morning. The short trip by boat is exhilarating. By afternoon, you can return and you'll be in Thiruvananthapuram by evening.


Varkala - Neyyar Dam - Ponmudi

If you have a week at your disposal, go for a tour package covering the three places Varklala, Neyyar Dam and Ponmudi. In Varkala, the sea and the Papanasom beach is calm and serene, compared to Kovalam, which at times turns murky due to an overflow of tourists. You can spend up to three days in and around Varkala climbing the high cliffs and bathing in the mineral springs. Neyyar Dam, 32 km to the south of Thiruvananthapuram, has a watchtower, crocodile farm, lion safari park and Deer Park. You can spend two days here roaming around the parks and enjoying the boat safari.

Ponmudi, the beautiful hill resort, with its narrow, winding pathways and cool, green woods is an ideal place for trekking. Walking around the place immersed in lush greenery soothes you with a sense of cool. Two days will be enough to cover Ponmudi.



If your stay in Kovalam is limited to one or two days, you can trip in and around Thiruvananthapuram. The capital city is known for its architectural magnificence. The many buildings built with red bricks and tiles also speak of the historical past of the city. A short skip around Thiruvananthapuram would take one day. Sree Padmanabha Swamy Temple, Napier Museum, Sree Chithra Art Gallery and the Priyadarshini Planetarium are places not to be missed. Do not forget to visit the Akkulam and Veli lakes.

Aruvikkara - Koyikkal Palace, Nedumangad

Aruvikkara is just 16 km away from Kovalam, a picturesque spot situated on the banks of the Karamana River. You can roam over the beautiful dam site and feed the fish that fearlessly come close to the banks of the stream near the Durga Temple. Spend half a day there and move on to Nedumangad, where the Koyikkal palace is situated. You can see the nalukettu, the traditional Kerala style building which dates back to the 15th century.
