The architecture at Soma Kerala Palace is a blend of several remarkable structures that belong to a long-gone epoch. It is for this reason, that each of our rooms rather, royal chambers, have an old-world aura.

Sreedhari was an Ayurveda Shala (Hospital) built in 1890, functioning in Pala, Kottayam. The structure was carefully disbanded and became a part of Soma Kerala Palace in the year 2003. Today, Sreedhari has palatial rooms that are evocative of the Tharavadus of ancient Kerala.

That the cuisine of Kerala is all about spices, coconuts and sea foods, is a misconception. There is a lot more to it apart from the flavours lent by the spices and coconuts. The difference in the way it is prepared and served is what makes the food of Kerala, a gourmet's delight!
