Neeleshwar Wellness

Our Wellness Programme

CONSULTATION with a doctor

Any treatments you choose at Neeleshwar are preceded by a complimentary consultation with our Ayurvedic doctor, Dr. Suma

She can recommend holistic treatments and activities to help you make maximum benefit of your stay, and if necessary advise on an appropriate food menu to be followed throughout your stay. In addition to the wide range of Ayurvedic programmes, some Western spa treatments are available to help you feel rested and rejuvenated.



At Neeleshwar we practice genuine Ayurvedic treatments in the traditional way, in collaboration with the Sahyadri Foundation, one of the few 100% organic herbal medicine manufacturers in India. We take great care to ensure that all the preparations we use are completely natural and organically produced, and are sourced in a way that does not impact negatively on the environment.

To do this we employ disadvantaged tribal groups in the Sahyadri mountains in Kerala, guaranteeing them stable employment, fair wages, and social improvements. We operate from a menu of twenty Ayurvedic treatments, both general and localized.

Priya Spa

The Priya Ayurvedic Spa has five spacious treatment rooms ranged around a central courtyard garden. The building has been designed along traditional lines with beautifully proportioned ceilings and elegantly carved pillars. The whole place is airy and well ventilated, with a wonderful calming atmosphere in which treatments are practiced in an unhurried and quiet way. We ensure that all the preparations we use are 100% natural, organically produced and sourced in a way that does not impact negatively on the environment.


Yoga is an indispensable aid to good health and our yoga programme at the Hermitage is under the tutelage of Shri Anil Kumar.


Two types of meditation courses are available. Prana Energising Technique is taught by Anil Kumar throughout the year in 1,2, and 3-day courses. Transcendental Meditation (TM) is taught by our cultural director Alistair Shearer (when he is at the hotel) in 4, 5, and 6 days courses.

Food Recommendations

If necessary our doctor may recommend an appropriate food menu to be followed during the course of your stay.

"On the unexplored northern part of the Malabar coast and flanked by a freshwater lagoon is this near-perfect heaven of peace and pampering. The cottages are designed and built along the traditional fisherman's thatched huts but each on with enough comforts to keep a five-star groupie enthralled."
