Niraamaya Retreats Cardamom Club is a remote hideaway nestled in a cardamom plantation that offers both adrenaline-fuelled adventure and a peaceful retreat. Perched amidst 9 acres of cardamom plantations, verdant groves and lush foliage, our cottage retreat exudes intensely private vibes. The cool and crisp mountain air, the musical calls of exotic birds and the beautiful scenery of Thekkady will revive the senses and leave you enchanted. Niraamaya spa infused with timeless therapeutic traditions from across the world, centred around Ayurveda is the perfect destination for rejuvenation after long treks or exhausting safaris. Cardamom Club which is in complete harmony with nature immensely helps to amplify the therapeutic processes of spa therapies. In-between lounging on hammocks or tucking into gorgeous meals, we highly recommend spice walks and treks to explore the stunning landscape of Thekkady.

Niraamaya Thekkady is a jewel amidst the mountains. Partly because of the lovely property but chiefly because of the amazing people managing it. Our two night stay here was a last minute plan and Ms.Himadri (the ops manager) had ensured that we had the best experience throughout. Every little thing from a welcome cake, cab for pickup, floral arrangements, room with best view, was taken care of, by her and the team. Mr.Ashok (F&B manager) was constantly in touch with us and ensured every meal was tailored to our requirements. He and Mr.Shindo (Head Chef) ensured we had fast a delicious service. Ms.Dhanya (F.O staff) gave us an informative spice walk tour and along with the other team members ensured we had a lovely time here. The spa was also splendid. Small but significant things: - Welcome drink on arrival - Complimentary snacks and chocolates in the room - Complimentary evening snacks on day 1 and dessert on departure day - Fast wifi - Fresh towels and robes, clean and spic room - Infinity pool with a jungle view to die for Also special thanks to Mrs.Poonam Tipnis (Head - Marketing) who gave me a great deal for this property and linked me up with the team here. This property and the people managing it have set the standards high and I'll be evaluating every other luxury resort I visit with Niraamaya Thekkady as the benchmark.

My family and I stayed at Niraamaya Retreats, Cardamom County (NRCC) for 5 nights last week. The resort is beautiful, clean and quiet, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of traffic and city life (it's a 10-minute drive in from the Kumily-Periyar main road). The forest canopy in and around the resort is teeming with a variety of birds which we enjoyed spotting and identifying. We saw over 50 species of birds during our time at the resort! We stayed in a lovely wooden cottage called "Fennel". It is higher up on the mountain side and is just a small uphill walk from the main lobby/restaurant building, with a balcony sit-out overlooking the surrounding forests and cardamom plantation. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was large enough to accommodate an additional full size bed for a third child/adult. The bathroom was spacious and well designed, and the shower had an openable "porthole" window with a green view, which was a very charming touch. Our mountain-view cottage was equipped with a split air-conditioner, a minibar, a tea/coffee making facility and a TV - which we never even switched on during our stay! The resort has a collection of books (most donated by past guests) and indoor games that you can use during your stay. The gorgeous outdoor infinity pool is surrounded by tall trees that are full of birds in the morning and evening. The pool offers a perfect way to spend a couple of hours of your day. Be sure to book your timings in advance with the staff, as they maintain a schedule for usage by different guests (part of their current Covid safety protocols). The team at the resort was extremely welcoming, warm and super-helpful. All of them stringently followed hygiene and safety protocols and remained masked during our interactions. Yet their smiles and genuine care effortlessly shone through their eyes and their body language. We were sent a customised, multi-course menu by WhatsApp before each meal period with a combination of Indian and Western food to choose from. In particular we recommend their breakfast selection and their South Indian food - it was fresh, tasty and healthy. Special shout-out to Himadri (Operations Manager) along with Ashok and Shikha (F&B Service) and Dhanya (Front Desk) for all their assistance during our visit. They are all superstars! We highly recommend NRCC for anyone planning a much-needed getaway from reality. Travel notes: we drove to NRCC from Bengaluru and the roads are in great condition. Google showed the travel time as 9.5 hours, but we did the journey (both going/coming) in 7.5 hours. The resort helped us get a Kerala travel e-permit and I also got an e-permit online for Tamil Nadu (both for our in/out journeys) but these were not asked for at any state border crossing. Also, though we took RT-PCR tests in Kumily 48 hours before returning, they were not checked anywhere while crossing from Kerala to Tamil Nadu or Karnataka. Go figure!

We had a truly amazing experience while staying at the Retreat. Everything from the look, feel, ambiance food, pool and most importantly, the hospitality was 10/10. They made sure we celebrate Holi in the best of ways! Check the season you plan to go.
