Beautiful lush landscapes surrounded by serene nature, stunning open fields, and a peaceful environment with mountain views make Inner Living a perfect home for relaxation and rejuvenation. Located in Mandrem, the moment you step into Inner Living Ayurveda & Yoga Retreat, the tranquil vibes of the place start calming you down instantly.
Coconut gloves and a wonderful open field, a quiet area overlooking the mountains and yet just about 2 km away from the Mandrem beach, Inner Living: Ayurveda & Yoga Retreat is not just a resort but a place that can alter your lifestyle and heal your mind, body, and soul.
In today’s stressful times, the need for holistic healing and inner happiness is much more and with its balance of natural surroundings and Ayurvedic therapies, Inner Living is your best bet to gift yourself some calming time and overall rejuvenation.
They have 15 cozy cottages that transported me back in time. I felt as if I was in a hill station with the cool breeze caressing my body and the warmth inside that wooden cottage made me feel comfortable and relaxed. The cottages are a perfect mix of being old school in their design language while being equipped with all modern amenities.
Apart from 15 cottages, they also have a Yoga Shala, a restaurant & bar, an art shop and an Ayurveda product shop. With the time-tested traditional healing techniques in Ayurveda to spa therapies, rejuvenation therapies, wellness treatments, slimming, detoxification, stress management, haircare, skincare, physiotherapy, yoga, and meditation, many ailments can also be cured at Inner Living. Inner Living does not just offer temporary relaxation therapies, but some of its packages are meant to take care of specific ailments over a period of time. These cure-based packages are designed after consulting with a doctor, and then the number of days required for the treatment, the therapies, and diet are planned.
In my two days of staycation, I enjoyed the Abhyanga, which is an ayurvedic procedure of application of medicated oils all over the body with a certain amount of pressure and massage. It was extremely therapeutic and relaxing.
The food at Inner Living is also something that will make you appreciate the place even more. The spacious restaurant overlooking green paddy serves great food and drinks on a normal basis. Only if you are on a treatment package and/or advised by your doctor, the meal included within the package is vegetarian, otherwise, you can enjoy both vegetarian and non-vegetarian meals at the restaurant.
From reading books to just sitting on a swing chair and breathing in the fresh air, to ayurvedic massages and taking a stroll to Mandrem beach, the possibilities of spending a great time at Inner Living are endless.
For me it also served as a perfect writer’s retreat when I sat down on the balcony of my room absorbing all serenity of the green surroundings, listening to the chirping of birds and letting the time just crawl by, my creativity just flew and my words just created the most wonderful stories.
Also, let me tell you the best part, Inner Living is without a doubt one of the most pocket-friendly Ayurveda resorts that I have come across. Their packages do not burn a hole in your pocket while the resort maintains high standards. For instance, the Abhyanga massage that I took is priced at just Rs 1500 for 45 mins. Their stay packages are also very reasonable.
Their long-term cure treatments can help you with ailments like lower backaches, diabetes, sleep disorders, weight management, etc. So whether it’s a getaway that you want to plan or treat a specific problem, Inner Living is definitely going to be worth your while.
