4 Favorite this hotel — to remember it, to save it to your wish list, or simply to express yourself

Hotel Description

Hard to believe there’s a place on the Malabar Coast of northern Kerala where you can get quite this much splendid seaside tranquility — but like all the best hotels, Neeleshwar Hermitage is remarkable, in part, for the element of surprise. Set in twelve acres of gardens and palms, right on a vast, eminently swimmable beach, it’s a loose collection of thatched-roof cottages centered around a fairly majestic infinity-edge swimming pool. Your host is a British writer and historian of India who leads Transcendental Meditation retreats on site, and it’s hard to imagine a more perfect venue.

Just because the proprietor is British doesn’t mean Neeleshwar Hermitage goes in for any colonial starchiness. The architecture is absolutely traditional, as are the meals in the beachside restaurant as well as the wellness offerings, from the Ayurvedic spa to the yoga classes. The cottages are spacious and comfortable but not needlessly extravagant — they are, however, air-conditioned, which is, for many of us, precisely the right level of extravagance. There’s also the option for a houseboat excursion along the Kerala backwaters, but be warned: there’s every chance you’ll end up choosing to leave your life behind and find yourself a hermitage of your own.
