I stayed at IVAC for two weeks to address a long term health problem. I found the main doctor at IVAC, Dr. Belaku, to be a really excellent Ayurvedic practitioner, in her diagnosis, in the daily treatment she planned, in being available (this is both during and after my stay there), and most importantly, in coming up with a long-term dietary regimen that was realistic in taking into account work and lifestyle, and so is something that I can actually follow after returning to normal life. The therapeutic treatments offered were not set in advance but idiosyncratic to my (and to each patient's) condition, which was really nice.
A majority of therapists were really good, and a majority of staff really helpful, making staying there alone totally comfortable- I left much less fatigued and rejuvenated. And, the IVAC campus is beautiful, which helps the process.
My only point of critique was that the swimming pool wasn't working during my whole stay, and maintenance promised every two days that it would be working in two days- it would've been nice just to know that its out of the picture so that everyone there could plan accordingly. Some guests at IVAC were there not for health treatments but for a weekend holiday, and for them this was a real bummer as they hadn't been told in advance- so if this is something you care about, ask before you go.
