DRESDEN, GERMANY, October 18, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ — Thiel Public Relations will be handling the Indian Somatheeram Ayurveda Group’s media and public relations activities in German-speaking Europe with immediate effect. This was confirmed by the PR agency in Dresden, Germany today. The company stated that the cooperation is geared to the long-term and aims to increase the presence of the group’s hotels and resorts in the media and online, whilst establishing Somatheeram as the leading provider of high-quality, authentic Ayurveda health tourism.
"We are delighted to welcome the Somatheeram Ayurveda Group as a new client of our agency," states Sebastian Thiel, Managing Director of Thiel Public Relations. "The Somatheeram Ayurveda Group is regarded as a pioneer in the realm of Ayurveda tourism. The authentic experiences of this ancient Indian form of medicine offered by the group make it second to none. We consider it a particular honour that the group has chosen us to raise its profile in the German-speaking countries."
The history of the Somatheeram Group dates back to 1985, the year in which the Somatheeram Resort was established. Situated amidst lush, tropical vegetation in the southern Indian state of Kerala, the complex was the first place in the world to have successfully combined Ayurveda medicine with modern hospitality. This makes Somatheeram one of the pioneers in the area of Ayurveda tourism in India as well as the international growth market of medical wellness.
Today, Sometheeram-inspired resorts exist throughout southern Asia, predominantly in southern India and Sri Lanka. However, very few of them can boast such a depth of medical care or such an authentic experience of Ayurveda. At present, the group employs a total of 20 doctors and 90 therapists and produces all of its own healing oils and herbal blends, remaining faithful to recipes that go back thousands of years. All resorts in the Somatheeram Group bear the ‘Green Leaf’ certificate. This coveted seal is awarded to Ayurveda facilities by the state government of Kerala in recognition of the highest standards of quality and hygiene.
For Somatheeram, the cooperation with Thiel is the lynchpin of an integrated communications campaign, which will draw on numerous other tourist industry partners to raise international awareness not only of the group, but also Ayurveda as a form of alternative medicine and Kerala as a tourist destination.
"We chose Thiel Public Relations because we were impressed by the agency’s professional, conceptual approach and its experience with high-end tourism products. We are looking forward to a long-term, constructive and trusting business relationship," comments Biju George, Manager of International Operations at Somatheeram.
