Travellers' Choice
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.

This place is really heaven on earth. You can call it your own private heaven as there are just 6 cottages. Not to forget the real angels who looked after each and every detail of your stay. The resort is impeccably maintained with flawless attention to detail. I must make a special mention of two things in here, one is fo the photography in every room and the reception and the brillant open showers. Not to forget the staff, who followed up about our journey into the resort making calls every single hour so that we could drive in the optimum route from bangalore and on our way back making sure that we reached back home safely. Should I say they were a resort or a family !! Keep up the fabulous work Mohan

The hotel is a very bumpy 20 minute ride from the town, but at the end of it is an idyllic wooded hillside on which are perched the main bungalow and the three cottages containing the 6 rooms of the hotel. The staff were incredibly friendly and hospitable, perhaps giving us a little too much attention whenever we were there - sometimes you just feel you'd like to chill out quietly - the only fault we found. The rooms and bathrooms are absolutely gorgeous, and the dining room excellent. You could stay there all day, enjoying the beautiful woods, the cardamom plantation itself and the birds viewable from the porch, but the staff were incredibly helpful in planning our boat safari, and an all day jeep safari to Gavi which is deeper into the sanctuary. All in all, a really lovely

My wife and I had a 5 days escape from Dubai in Kerala in January 2013. Niraamaya Resorts, the owner of the Cardamom Club and of another beautiful property in Kovalam, greeted us and pampered us for 5 days making our trip unforgettable. After a rather long ride throughout Kerala from Colombo (4 hours) we eventually reached Cardamom Club, a lovely nest in the green hearth of Kerala. Great attention to guests (only 6 beautiful bungalows are available), great silence, Ayurvedic spa and lovely cuisine, Indian and international. Bungalows are nice, well refined and comfortable, with a spacious bathroom area. The offered trip at the Peryar reserve allowed us to see great landscapes and wild animals. Personnel gave us the highest attention we have ever had in many years of travel,

Dear Marco, It has been a pleasure to host you and your wife at the newly renovated Cardamom Club under management of Niraamaya Retreats. We are pleased that you had a memorable experience and enjoyed the cuisine and spa. Accompanied walks around the Cardamom plantation is a small gesture that we try and give our guests in order to connect with nature and enjoy the amazing flora and birds that habit the estate. We do look forward to your return and look forward to exceeding your expectations. Thanking you,

My family (wife and 2 kids ages 12 and 13) enjoyed the cabins and the area - Thekkady. We stayed for 3 days - which was perfect. The ride here from Kochi was long (4-5 hrs) and windy up the mountain. Once here - it was really nice. The staff are very attentive and the cabins beautiful. Family enjoyed it.
