Embark on a blissful journey that offers an exceptional combination of four days at Neeleshwar Hermitage, a stylish retreat on a peaceful palm-fringed beach, and a two day cruise through the tranquil Malabar backwaters.
The ancient Indian scriptures constantly remind us that the hidden essence of life is what they call ananda – bliss. Here at the Hermitage, our aim has always been to awaken and enliven this inner quality in our guests and everything here, from the arrangement of the surroundings to our food and wellness therapies, is dedicated to this end.

"It was a fantastic relaxing holiday
and I regret having to go back to the real world again but hopefully I am able to come back next year. Thank you so much!"2011-04-26
"Neeleshwar represents, really, the perfect distillation of what so many Westerners, from E.M.Forster and Allen Ginsberg to the Beatles, have come to India in an attempt to find: an escape from the pressures and frenzied pace of our lives. The transition from stressed-out to blissed-out, however, is surprisingly swift...in just a few days, I am barefoot, loose-limbed and clear-headed, with a sensation of wellbeing that, I later discover, I carry with me long afterwards"2015-08-04
