For the rest of your life



We are very happy to announce that The Hermitage has just been given the award for ‘The Best Health and Rejuvenation Resort in India 2012’ by the CNBC TRAVEL AWARDS.

This is one of the most prestigious awards in the Indian travel business, as CNBC is the umbrella for several important news channels, including CNN and NDTV.

The award ceremony took place in Srinagar, the capital of the beautiful state of Kashmir, and all the important members of the Indian travel fraternity were there. The  guests of honour included Umar Abdullah, (Chief Minister of J & K), Gulam Nabi Azaad (Union Minister for Health), and Shri Charanjeeve (Indian Government Minister of Tourism).

The setting of Srinagar was particularly pleasing from our point of view as out Managing Director, Altaf Chapri, who collected the award on behalf of the hotel, is a native of the city himself. In his speech Altaf thanked all the friends and well-wishers who have supported our ground-breaking effort to bring first class, responsible tourism to Northern Kerala, and he made particular mention of our dedicated and hard-working staff in the hotel and the support of the local community who appreciate our success in bringing jobs to the area.   

As this is only our third full year of trading, all of us at The Hermitage feel justifiably proud to have received this award. It will act as an incentive for us to continue to provide the very best in health and rejuvenation for all our guests, and we look forward to offering you our traditional heartfelt welcome down here in Malabar. In the meantime, we wish you all the very best of health and long life in the direction of immortality!

"The greeting in Neeleshwar set the tone of the coming week: it was warm, professional, calm and had an understated attention to detail that meant you could completely relax into the arms of the place. Neeleshwar is beautiful, superbly run and the best place I have ever visited for recharging a weary body and mind. By the end of the week I felt 10 years younger."
