Dr. Franklin's Pancharma Institute & Ayurveda Centre 8.8
Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, India

22 KM from TRV Airport

Prices starting from USD 1,664

per package

Dr. Franklin’s Ayurveda Centre is situated within close proximity of Chowara Beach. It offers two unique benefits: pricing is lower than the neighbouring beach resorts and it has a fitness centre. People generally come to Dr Franklin’s for a long duration, typically three weeks, in order to undergo panchakarma, the Ayurvedic system of detoxification. People also come to Dr. Franklin's for physical rehabilitation following an injury or accident. The food at this resort is pure vegetarian: the quality of soups and the variety of fresh juices are generally better than what Ayurveda centres offer . The different room categories have huge variation in quality, so choose wisely! Contact Ayurooms for personalized guidance.
