Neeleshwar Hermitage

7-Night Neeleshwar Hermitage Fitness & Activity Retreat


In an oasis of calm set in twelve naturally landscaped acres, Neeleshwar Hermitage which is built according to the traditional architectural principles of Kerala Vastu, is one of the most peaceful and luxurious resorts in Inda. The award-winning resort welcomes guests to escape from the stress and business of life to settle in one of their earthy villas (cottages) and enjoy the excellent service from the winner of the World Luxury Hotel Awards Winner (2015) and most recently a winner of Asia's best beach retreat by Boutique Hotel Awards.

Working on building a healthy lifestyle, this program combines scenic fitness activities such as trekking in the Western Ghats and biking along Malabar Coast with detoxifying Ayurveda treatments, a week-long course on the fundamentals of meditation as well as Ayurveda meals prepared with care. With private Yoga classes and visits to nearby cultural sites and temples, guests will experience a fitness journey removed from a stressful environment. Courses led by experts will also help equip guests with tools to maintain a balanced lifestyle when they leave the retreat.
