Here’s a unique concept – combining ayurveda and timeshare. This project is being implemented in Kerala state of India.

Kandamkulathy Vaidyasala will develop 15 air conditioned family cottages of approximately 750 sq feet each, and sell the ownership of these cottages to private parties. “We will target inbound as well as domestic tourists, and offer different types of treatment packages designed on the basis of illness. It will be an authentic Ayurvedic resort, which maintains high standards,” says KP Wilson, Managing Director, Kandamkulathy Group.

The group will charge around Rs 25 lakh per cottage for ownership. In lieu, the group will provide Rs 20,000 as monthly income, for 65 per cent utilisation of the cottage. Investors will have ownership of the cottage, as well as four cents of land. Besides these, the resort will offer facilities such as Ayurvedic centres, treatment rooms, yoga/meditation centre, herbal garden, jogging track, swimming pool, indoor (as well as outdoor) games, restaurant, banquet hall, handicraft shop and high speed internet. Presently, the group is seeking investors for selling these cottages.

Uncontrolled and unchecked …

The following report throws light on growing popularity of ayurveda practices with foreign tourists and how unregulated and sub par ayurveda massage parlours and non-qualified personnel can spoil the party.

In Goa too which received some 3 million tourists in 2006-2007 no guidelines have been framed for the setting up and for regulations of the massage parlours.

“No clear cut guidelines have been specified for the setting up of Ayuverda clinics and there is no mechanism to check the numerous quacks which operate from the state and no one is sure who is a real practitioner from a fake one,” laments Flora Fernandes, a woman who regularly gets massages, and who is not related to Roque Fernandes.

The Goa state tourism department has no head count on the number of ayurveda practitioners in the state or so does the health department.

The health department only has record of the ayurvedic doctors operating from the state and Doctors who have passed out after completing their five year course through the only ayurvedic college in Goa. [Ancient Indian Medicine Faces Challenges Of Globalization]
