Soul of Sitaram



The name SITARAM stands for – ‘Sita’ (Goddess of Harvest) meaning “furrow” and ‘Ram’ (7th Avatar of Lord Vishnu) meaning “stop, stand still, Rest, rejoice and be pleased” which resonates with our idea of harvesting medicinal plants and turning it into life enhancing medicines, making people aware of the goodness of Ayurveda and the utmost importance of understanding and treating our health.

At Sitaram, our purpose is to show you the path to connect to yourself and experience a breakthrough transformation at physical, emotional, and spiritual levels. We want to make people realize that health is a necessary choice which needs a conscious effort to achieve and maintain. Our Sitaram Beach Retreat is located on the shores of the Arabian Sea, while our Sitaram Mountain Retreat is nestled against the backdrop of the lush Munnar Plantations. Both our retreats provide a holistic healing experience in the lap of nature.

Every element of our retreat exudes an aura of profound spiritual healing. Our treatments and the nourishment we provide are infused with a deep sense of personalization and unwavering commitment to your well-being, reflecting our core values. While at Sitaram, explore 100 years of legacy and tradition.
