There are no words to describe how and what Hinterland Village is or what it does for you and your soul. It’s really life changing. They will customize each persons “program” when you arrive to what is best suited for you and your needs. You don’t want or need for anything during your entire stay. The team has truly thought of everything. You come as a guest and leave as feeling part of family. You can feel the love and care and thoughtfulness they have put into every aspect of your stay. This is my 2nd time back to Hinterland and I will back back as much as I can. Each time you go you take something really special and different away. It can be intimidating signing up for retreats and not knowing what it will be like but trust when I say JUST BOOK IT! This is your sign. I promise you will have zero regrets. Well maybe one regret, that wish you would or could of stayed longer. Unni (the owner) and his team are the sweetest and most caring people you will meet. Oh, and the icing and cherry on top, the food! It is the best. They grow their own organic food on their 7 acre property. Then there is Swami (the main yoga teacher and philosophy teacher) who has taught me so much. Thank you doesn’t even begin to be enough to say to Hinterland Village and all that they have helped me do. It is truly life changing. I have been fortunate to travel all over the world and my back ground is hotel management and they just blow everything else out of the water. They also have a pool for the warmer days or when you want to change it up. Many room types to choose from massages, laundry service, bike rentals, you name it they have it! Unni’s wife is pure magic as well. Such a beautiful soul inside and out. I could on and on about H.V. But all I have to say is book it! Don’t wait, don’t question your choices, this is the one for you. I can bet my life on it. You can’t walk away from this place not glowing. I feel like a new and recharged person every time. It is PURE Happiness. Thank you so much for all that you do at H.V. I can’t wait to come back! Love and Light.

I have never felt so comfortable in an accommodation as in Hinterland. The food was perfect, the yoga classes and meditations really relaxed me, and the massages were pure pleasure. I particularly appreciate the warmth and effort of the staff. Every wish was granted. I'm beyond excited.

I spent my new year in Hinterlands and the week after it. It was a beautiful experience. From the massages and the meals to the yoga classes and interactions with everyone on the property, it was absolutely worth my first trip to Kerala. The place is engulfed in serenity, imagine birds chirping and trees swaying in the afternoon wind. You can choose to relax with a glass of coconut water and skip some yoga classes or dive right in. For yoga enthusiasts, there are classes on yoga, yoga philosophy, and meditation scheduled very frequently. I loved the meditation classes by Jayesh. I was there for every single one of them. My friends loved the yoga classes with Swami more. Lastly, the meals used to be the highlight of my day. Authentic dishes cooked from vegetables that were grown on the property itself. Healthy and very delicious, no other way to put it. Unlike most places where the staff pretends to be nice, you could feel the warm vibe of the staff at Hinterlands. They were genuinely there for you, whether serving your fifth refill of the pomegranate juice or helping you move to a different room for better WiFi connectivity. Gokul used to teach us yoga and help with food too, there wasn't an ounce of hesitation or ego. It felt more like staying at a fun uncle's house to learn yoga than holidaying in a resort.

There is no way to describe the harmony and bliss of this place ! Every little detail is amazing from Unnis vision, to the tree art, massages by Hari, yoga and meditation by Jayesh, and the team. Food is outstanding and fresh, juices and herbal teas to rejuvenate you. And a walk with Unni and Aloki showcasing all the sustainability projects is the icing on the cake :). Hope I will be back every year and more of us from this country can learn to enjoy the extraordinary joys of Hinterland. Seeing all the five stars I almost thought this was fake, but so glad some things in life are so genuine. Wishing everyone much equanimity in 2022 !

I am so glad that I traveled to India (Hinterland in Kerala) from Ireland for xmas and new year. Travel was not an issue, as many told me it would be. Just needed my Covid tests and certs and a few locator forms to complete. Unni and his team in Hinterland made my stay so relaxed, interesting and worthwhile. There was nothing too big or small that they would not do for me. The yoga and mediation instruction is top class. When you combine that with superb service, food and atmosphere it is no surprise that I had a wonderful time. If you thinking of travelling and want an exceptional place to learn or deepen your yoga and mediation practice then go for it! Hinterland village is the place to go. Frank (Ireland)

First workation experience, and it go perfectly well and fantastic. Stayed here for 3 days and the experience was wonderful. They offer yoga trainings and ayurvedic doctor consultation with lifestyle advices. Food is only vegetarian but I never felt vegetarian food this tasty. Stay here made me realize that one can survive with vegetatian food 😋. All staffs are really friendly and they are a call away for any assistance. The owner of this property hosted us pretty well, Thanks to Unni sir for same. You can expect a place which will make you feel at home. It is a place which is beautifully designed and kept and was a delight to stay in. Would highly recommend the stay at this place. And you get exactly what you see in the pictures.

From the moment you step out of your taxi and receive a welcoming hug from Unni, is the moment you are able to release all from before that moment and feel at home. Hinterland is like a cocoon of warmth and safety that you just don't want to leave. Every day there is a blessing to behold! Traditional yoga twice daily, along with meditation and yogic philosophy is an experience that encompasses mind, body and spirit. Chef prepared food was bliss in a bowl that heals the body and soul, and Ayurvedically prepared to reach the core of disharmony on an individualised level. Herbal massages to heal and remove toxins as needed were always a highlight. A tour of the grounds was a real treat, to see all the fruit and vegetables growing there that end up on our tables every day, organic and fresh. I miss chilling in a hammock under the coconut trees and the hilarious turkeys. I am definitely looking forward to experiencing that Hinterland cocoon once again in the not too distant future.

Un séjour à Hinterland est une véritable expérience de vie inoubliable. Le cadre idyllique est un vrai havre de paix qui vous ressource et dépayse instantanément. Unni et son équipe sont aux petits soins et répondent aux besoins de chacun avec beaucoup de bienveillance. Les cours de yoga, méditation, philosophie sont superbes : adaptés aux niveaux de chacun. Les massages et activités proposées sont toujours d'une excellente qualité. Manesh, le cuisinier propose une cuisine aussi divine que saine, avec les produits récoltés avec un grand respect de la nature par Shiva. Mes 15 jours à Hinterland ont dépassé toutes mes attentes : j'ai instauré de nouvelles habitudes de vie que sont belles et bien installées encore 10 semaines après mon retour et j'ai retrouvé une énergie et bien être inespérés. Un grand merci à Unni et toute l'équipe. ====. Staying in Hinterland is an unforgettable lifetime experience. You feel instantly ressourced and relaxed on arrival in this wonderful paradise. Unni and his team go out of their way to meet everybody's personal needs. The yoga, meditation and philosophy classes are beautifully lead by very professional teachers : they are adapted to the levels of each and everyone. The massages and all activities proposed are always of a high quality and well served. MAnesh, the cook, proposes the most wonderful and healthy cuisine, all home grown with respect to the earth by Shiva. My 15 day stay in Hinterland went far beyond anything you could imagine : it completely changed my life habits and enabled me to boost my energy levels and find a wellbeing that persists 10 weeks after my return. I feel very privileged to have lived the Hinterland experience and will return. It is with a lot of gratitude that I thank Unni and all the team.
