Booking process at vaidyagrama Ayurveda healing village
1) You may write to us by clicking here giving details of your medical condition and proposed dates when you would like to come for treatment at vaidyagrama.
2) Our physicians will examine the medical details and give the tentative duration for which you should plan to come for treatment. Generally this duration can vary anywhere between 3 - 8 weeks depending on the condition and treatment required.
3) Based on the proposed treatment plan, we will give you a tentative idea of costs involved. The general costs are given at the bottom of this page.
5) After receipt of the amount, we will confirm the reservation for you. Please note that until receipt of your amount in our account, your reservation will not be confirmed.
6) For any non-currency payments (like Paypal / Bank Transfer etc.), there are extra charges applicable (at actuals), as we have not included their transaction fees in our fees structure – the additional charge will be the difference between the actual billed amount and the actual received amount.
7) Please note that while we do our best to accomodate you on your preferred dates, there will be occasions when due to medical reasons, a patient may be requested to extend his/her stay due to which your arrival may need to be postponed. We do realise that this could cause inconvenience to you but we are sure you understand that it is only for medical reasons that such changes could happen and request your co-operation in this regard.
8) Similarly we do get requests for preferred rooms; here again, while we do our best to accomodate your request, we cannot guarantee the availability of a preferred room.
9) Sometimes we do have periods of the year for which we offer only double occupancy to accomodate all patients. Hence while making your reservation, you may communicate your preference and we will certainly try to fulfil your request. Generally the cost per patient per day in a double occupancy room will be at least 20% less than the cost in a single occupancy room.
10) The period from January 01 2017 to February 28 2017 is currently open only for double occupancy.
Costs at vaidyagrama
What will it cost me for treatment at vaidyagrama?
Once you arrive into vaidyAgrama, you will have two costs: Accommodation and Treatment.
Your accommodation will cost US$ 35 per person per day for a single room, and this includes simple diet vegetarian food every day. Alternatively, a double/twin share room will cost US$ 25 per person per day, also including simple diet vegetarian food every day.
Cost of your treatment will vary depending on the treatment you receive. Within 7 days of your arrival, we will give you an estimate of cost of your treatment. We advise that for treatment in 2017/2018, you should budget between US$ 60 and US$ 90 per person per day in addition to your accommodation cost. This Treatment Cost includes treatment, medicines during treatment and consultations, and would also include access to morning and evening prayers, satsang or discussions, yoganidra sessions, cooking sessions, weekly community dinner and any other such programs that may be organised from time to time. This estimate does not include cost of incidentals like laundry, telephone, internet, airport transfers, take-home medicines and other miscellaneous expenditure which will be billed at actuals.
This variation in cost of treatment is due to the treatments and medicines/oils used for each patient and the patient's need. Based on the physician's assessment of the patient's condition, the appropriate combination of treatment is selected from a choice of more than 400 different herbs, more than 100 different medicated oils and 50 types of on-body treatments used by us. It should be noted that there is a large price difference between these oils, herbs and treatments used by us.
Often, when satisfactory progress is presented based on both the patients and our evaluation, "hidden" problems present themselves (with the patient not even aware of them) after treatment commences, at which time the original treatment protocol needs to be re-addressed.
Please note - generally our physicians recommend that you continue medicines (internal herbs and external oils) for periods ranging from 6 weeks to even 6 months after you leave from here - this is based on your medical condition and to enable you to maximise the benefit from your stay here.

- we are trying to create healing relationships here; not transactional relationships. By reducing a healing relationship to a transactional relationship, we are violating the sanctity of the healing process. You are coming to a space that you can call home; in an ideal scenario, you would be contributing to the extent of your capacity to look after this home. Since today we are brought up in a transactional world and do not know to give our heart, an indicative fee structure has been put in place in Vaidyagrama to help you to know how much to give.
- there are the less fortunate amongst us who need financial support to be able to spend time in the Vaidyagrama healing space. The fact that they pay less does not mean that you are paying more. Vaidyagrama believes that nobody should have to forego the opportunity to be in this space only because of their financial limitations. And hence we choose to help those amongst you who need this support; of course Vaidyagrama has strongly adopted the value of “trust” and believes in people when they tell us that they are financially deprived
- you are most welcome to contribute more than the indicated fee if your heart so desires; it is only with the support of the larger community that this small community can reach where it intends to go
- we request that you avoid being in the transactional or negotiation space at least in vaidyagrama; it hurts your healing process and hence we strongly discourage you from being transactional in vaidyagrama
