Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum), India1 contribution
Great place for a staycation and long stay. We Booked a one night stay at Niramaya. We had a great experience. Special thanks to the team at Niramaya for their sweet gesture in arranging a surprise for my wife on her birthday. The beach view is too good and all the rooms ensure privacy. A must visit place for relaxing and rejuvenating.

We travelled as a family and spent one day at this awesome resort. We stayed at the 'Heritage Class' Villa and it's value for money. Most of the villas and room feature an open bath facility while still providing a semi closed bath option. The 'Rockgarden' series of rooms are the best for women travllers who are looking for more privacy in this regard. The beach view premium villas are the best here which provide awesome direct beach view. Though the interior space is best at the rock garden rooms when you consider the value for money aspect. The rock garden ones are the furthest away from the beach though. Wherever you stay in the resort, you can walk around and take a lot of awesome photos with beach in the background. The restaurant too is located at an awesome location with beach view. There is beach access from the resort but its in no way a private beach, local people around too are seen in the beach but the rush is much less and you are usually able to enjoy the beach. Special mention should be made about Joseph, the security guard who takes special care of visitors at the beach giving them clear instructions for their own safety. The resort has a beer and wine license, so you can avail either of those at the restaurant or at your villa/room but don't expect hard liquor or cocktails here as they don't have it. The overall experience at the resort was awesome and we would definitely visit again to one of the beach view premium villas. All the staff in the hotel were very receptive and welcoming but I would like to mention Athira at the front desk who we interacted the most. She helped yes a lot at the time of booking and later too at the resort.

I’m traveling in Kerala for work for two weeks and had a few days to myself over the weekend so I booked this place based on a recommendation from a colleague. Niraamaya exceeded all of my expectations for a recharging weekend! I participated in some yoga classes at sunrise and sunset (overlooking the ocean) and a meditation session. I also used the spa massage services which were superb. The food is delicious, The staff is lovely, and you are surrounded by beauty and the sounds of waves crashing on the sand. This weekend was everything I could have hoped for, I’m surely going into my week relaxed and fulfilled. 5 stars for me!

I arrived quite late at night to the hotel and even then, they welcomed me with open arms and a smile on their face. Given that i was half asleep myself, that gave me some energy to smile back and reply to them. I really loved the stay, the hospitality, the maintenance and the service, and would like to visit again not only for my planned adventure but to also stay at the hotel again.
