Now the festive season is rapidly approaching, why not escape the cold and pollution of the city and retreat to a hidden beach in northern Kerala? At the paradise garden of Neeleshwar Hermitage, golden sands are lapped by the waters of the Arabian ocean while flocks of birds wheel elegantly overhead and the dolphins play hide-and-seek among the waves. Settled amidst the coconut palms and luscious plants you can enjoy the infinity pool, walk along the unspoilt beach, be pampered with excellent food, de-tox with personalised ayurvedic treatments and a choice of yoga classes at various levels. Or, you can just chill out on the verandah of your thatched cottage, catch up on reading or work while soaking up the tranquil view in an atmosphere of stylish seclusion. Excursions out from The Hermitage include a cruise through the backwaters on board the Lotus, Malabar's most luxurious houseboat, exploring village shrines and hidden walks, or witnessing the spectacular ritual of Theyyam , a trance-possession ceremony unique to Malabar, where the gods come down to earth.
However you may like to spend your time, there is something for you here. Come and enjoy the present moment, immersed in the restorative lap of Mother Nature and free of demands and deadlines. Come and celebrate the good life in style at The Hermitage.
