A hidden tropical destination in northern Kerala beside the Arabian Sea.
Surrounded by a firmament of coconut trees and lulled by the constant background soundtrack of the ocean, The Hermitage offers an overall ambience that never fails to bestow relaxation. The whole site is oriented to the east and the rising sun, while its component buildings are all placed in correct relation to each other, the four directions and the site as a whole. The site overlooks a gloriously unspoiled beach of sand, stretching as far as the eye can see in both directions and giving onto a sea that is clean and safe for swimming for most of the year. Our hermitage celebrates traditional architecture combined with familiar modern comforts the hermitage staff offer Kerala hospitality with unparalleled attention to detail.
 
With just 16 Cottages, we capitalise on our boutique size with all guests addressed by name and other bespoke touches extending throughout a stay that is nourished by the quiet attention that is inherent in Kerala culture. From the signature coconut drink that greets your arrival to the smiling faces genuinely sorry to see you leave, everything here is carefully and subtly designed around your personal needs. Our staff are attentive, yet always discrete and sensitive.
 
Northern Kerala, traditionally known as Malabar, is a jewel awaiting discovery. Empty beaches fringed by coconut plantations, uncrowded inland waterways and lush hillside spice gardens are features of an undisturbed rhythm of life set against the immensity of the ocean. An oasis of calm, The Hermitage is only two hours from Mangalore international airport and directly linked with the rest of the state by air, road and train.
 
Modelled on traditional fishermen's huts, each of our 16 detached cottages offer privacy, comfort and individuality. Our hermitage offers Twin Garden View, Twin Sea View and Single Cottages each with its own unique character and refinement.
 
Each cottage is positioned to give occupants a sense of supreme privacy. Cottages are light and airy, with teak floors, high ceiling and generous proportions and embellished with locally handmade furniture and both antique and contemporary works of art from Kerala, and stereo system (ipod). Four garden-view cottages with exactly the same facilities as the sea view ones, these provide beautiful views over the fertile gardens. These cottages can be used by families or parties who would like to be together. nThe buildings are constructed in the local laterite and thatch, with carved and dressed woodwork fashioned in traditional style by local craftsmen so skilled that their usual work is building and restoring temples. These craftsmen have also produced our handmade furniture.
 
Restaurants

Annapurna: The Annapurna restaurant, dedicated to the Goddess of Nourishment, is the centre of the site. Annapurna specialises in authentic, predominantly vegetarian food not usually seen in hotels. Our cooking skills are honed by ayurvedic teaching on the importance of attending to the appearance, balance, flavour, enjoyment and nutritional effects of any dish.

 
Meenakshi: We also have a beachside restaurant, the Meenakshi, named after another local goddess. Here you can enjoy superb fresh fish caught by the local long boats that go out each morning, as well as breakfast, healthy lunchtime salads and delicious light meals.
 
At Neeleshwar we practise genuine Ayurvedic treatments in the traditional way, in collaboration with the Sahayadri 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 Sahayadri mountains in Kerala, guaranteeing them stable employment, fair wages and social improvements. We operate from a menu of twenty Ayurvedic treatments, both general and localised.
 
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 practised 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.
