Reviews in credible media publications
Go through fine print text.
How specific and detailed is the site and how willingly do they respond to questions.
Compare with other places and check what each has to offer
Check if the place has the Green Leaf certification given by Kerala Tourism.
Check if the doctors on the premises are A-class registered practitioners with the Indian Medical Council.
At the better Ayurveda centres, once you have sent in a query about a treatment package, it’s the doctor who usually responds.
It’s also a good idea to check on the credibility of the place with the Ayush department, ministry of health, government of India, or with the Kerala Tourism authorities.
