28 day Panchakarma included more than 100 different massages and treatments with high professional and very friendly staff. 3-5 hours treatment per day depending your needs. Ayurvedic food served in the restaurant. Quality of food very good. Ambiente and service quality in restaurant could be improved. Very nice hotel rooms and huts. Felt very comfortable.
