Kerala to reopen Ayurveda resorts and Spas

The Government of Kerala has finally decided to reopen spas and ayurvedic resorts in the state, which were closed for over nine months due to the novel coronavirus. The decision was announced by the state Tourism Minister Kadakampally Surendran.

The spas, ayurvedic resorts, and other such facilities in Kerala, are now all set to welcome visitors again as the state government has issued orders for reopening them by adhering to safety norms. There has been a continuous demand from the industry players to open up the Ayurveda sector which has a significant role in Kerala’s incoming tourism. The spas and ayurvedic resorts used to welcome a large number of tourists both domestic and international holidayers in the southern state every year.

Minister said “Such institutions must be open in full compliance with the Covid protocol. Institutions should take all precautions to ensure hygiene and safety.”

He further added that the existing general guidelines regarding the functioning of the tourism sector during the novel coronavirus pandemic should also be fully complied with by Ayurveda resorts and Spas.

Talking about the impact of Covid 19 on Kerala’s tourism revenues, the minister said that the state’s tourism sector has incurred a loss of ₹15,000 crore due to the Covid-induced lockdown.
