Neeleshwar Hermitage

A serene and stylish retreat set in the dappled shade of a sleepy coconut grove on the pristine shores of the Arabian sea in blissfully unspoilt Northern Kerala

Indulge in the quintessential barefoot luxury experience at Neeleshwar Hermitage, the tranquil hideaway where boutique chic meets Vedic well-ness to create complete relaxation for the body and soul. 

Surrounded by lush gardens of hibiscus and frangipani, light and airy palm-roofed cottages blend traditional Keralan architecture with contemporary design.  The luxurious indoor-outdoor bathroom is filled with natural products and the in-room i-pod loaded with cool sounds to match this serene resort. Secluded verandahs catch the sea breeze and far-reaching views of the deserted golden coastline.

Spot dolphin diving in the sea whilst reclining by the infinity pool, re-align your chakras at the yoga pavilion lulled by the sounds of the surf, and on long beach, walks be mesmerized by flocks of sea birds swooping over the ocean. Taste seafood fresh from the local fishermen’s daily catch, and authentic home-style specialties flavoured with spices from Kerala’s Malabar Hills. Feel the sand between your toes at the beachside restaurant as the glorious golden globe of the setting sun sinks into the horizon. 

Whether you choose to while away the day dozing in a hammock, exploring ancient temples, learning the secrets of Keralan cuisine or immersing yourself in the dedicated Ayurvedic Priya spa, our warm and welcoming staff are always at hand.
