Years in The Hospitality
The Making of Munkudil
Munkudil means a hut made of clay or earth – Best Ayurvedic health resort in Thattekkadu, Kerala.
It is a dream project of our creator and founder Mr Jomy Thomas who wanted to craft a unique and eco-friendly abode where people can peacefully practice Yoga and benefit from Ayurveda being one with nature.
Even though the construction started way back in 2005, it was only around 2017 that the property took shape as per Jomy’s concept.
He wanted to make sure that everything about Munkudil was earthy and eco-friendly.
He meticulously found a team to create the clay fridge, air conditioner and letterbox.
The wooden architecture and artefacts were crafted by a team of native artists and depict a unique mix of intricate ancient elements from our rich culture, nature, Yoga and Ayurveda.
The Man Behind
A Jomy Thomas Dream
Jomy Thomas, the creator and founder of Munkudil Ayur and Yoga Resort, hails from a middle-class family in southern Kerala.
Jomy completed Electronic Engineering in India, Power Engineering in Canada and received professional training in Electrics from the UK.
His passion for Nature and Naturopathic sciences since childhood motivated him to take up a part-time diploma in Naturopathy and Yogic sciences.
He has attended many nature and health-oriented programs thanks to his personal interest. While learning all of these, he dreamed of creating a natural shelter on earth with all of the gifts of nature, which has now come true as Munkudil.
The construction of Munkudil started in 2005.
Jomy was in Canada at that time and travelled many times to discuss various green aspects of the building with experts in India.
There was a lot of effort, pain and patience involved in creating each of the features which were so lovingly handmade on site. Adding the green ideas to make a full theme was a time-consuming task, so the construction got completed in 2017.
Ever since we opened up to our guests, we have been receiving rave reviews for the artistically crafted Munkudil from our visitors from far across the world.
The awards we received add more happiness and confidence to our efforts.
“ Munkudil has been my dream from the time I saw the place during one of my visits from Canada where I stayed back then. The journey ever since has been tedious but quite endearing as I wanted to create a space that was genuinely close to nature in every sense. I have personal experience of healing through Yoga and Ayurveda and I wanted more people to realize and benefit from it. My team at Munkudil takes good care of every guest who reaches out to us and visits for a retreat. We ensure personalized care because that’s a part of our culture. Aditi Devo Bhava! ”
