Tucked away between the tropical forest lies this retreat. We arrived at Cochi Airport at 3am and didn't realise that the drive to here would be a 4-hour hair-raising stretch. However, the trip was well worth it; the staff are warm, helpful and eager to please, the grounds are clean and comfortable, the restaurant offers a delicious menu as well...

The retreat is located just a couple of km off the highway, but seems likes it's in a different world. Loved the place, the serene ambience where the world seems to stand still.

We landed at Niraamaya after some ours on the indian roads. What a pieceful rest. The best service and a lovely kitchen made our stay very pleasant.

A must for foodies! Some of the most delicious, fresh cooking that we have come across on our stay in South India. I was impressed that everything was prepared on the spot with most ingredients coming from their own plantation (which we explored on a beautiful afternoon walk). I even took the pineapple chutney home! The rooms were cozy, beautifully...

Not what I expected. The retreat has only 7 rooms so it's very personal experience. Rooms are gorgeous and service was very good.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Niraamaya Retreats Cardamom Club is a remote hideaway nestled in a cardamom plantation that offers both adrenaline-fuelled adventure and a peaceful retreat. Perched amidst 9 acres of cardamom plantations, verdant groves and lush foliage, our 6-cottage retreat exudes intensely private vibes. The windows of the rustic plantation-style cottages serve as a gateway to the exotic wildlife. The cool and crisp mountain air, the musical calls of exotic birds and the beautiful scenery of Thekkady will revive the senses and leave you enchanted. Niraamaya spa infused with timeless therapeutic traditions from across the world, centred around Ayurveda is the perfect destination for rejuvenation after long treks or exhausting safaris. Cardamom Club which is in complete harmony with nature immensely helps to amplify the therapeutic processes of spa therapies. In-between lounging on hammocks or tucking into gorgeous meals, we highly recommend spice walks and treks to explore the stunning landscape of Thekkady. For the more adventurous, take the Gavi Safari to spot the elusive tiger or get up close and personal with Asian elephantsFor the more adventurous, take the Gavi Safari to spot the elusive tiger or get up close and personal with Asian elephants ... more   less
