Neeleshwar Hermitage, Neeleshwar, India
Located near the town of Neeleshwar in Northern Kerala, Neeleshwar Hermitage is a peaceful retreat set in 12 acres of naturally landscaped grounds. The eco-friendly resort was built by local craftsmen and is situated on a quiet beach.
There are just 16 rooms all of which are beautifully finished in a traditional style with contemporary touches. There are two types of rooms: garden view cottages and sea-view cottages, each with its own veranda. With polished teak floors and many hand-made furnishings the spacious rooms have a feeling of elegance. Tea and coffee making facilities, personal safe and hair dryer, wired and wireless internet connection are standard inclusions. Television and DVD player are available on request (subject to availability). The en-suites have rain showers rather than baths, and these are open to the skies while the rest is under cover.
Cuisine is a choice of local and international dishes, and predominantly vegetarian (no red meat is served), though a variety of seafood is also available. Local beers and wines are served. Should you tire of relaxing you may like to have a spa treatment, swim in the pool or explore the local area. Long stay spa packages, yoga and ayurvedic courses are also available. Please ask your specialist for details if you are interested.
