2023 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
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.

"Day out in Thekkady" Very pleasant stay in Niraamaya Resort.. Wonderful staff and nice hospitality. All the staff were pleasant and attractive. Especially Ms. Indu and Mr. Chandran. Way of road is littile difficult. But once you reach the resort it's like Jungle feel. We enjoyed our stay.

Niraamaya Retreats Cardamom Club ist a cosy retreat about two kilometers from the main road. the road that leads up to the retreat is a bit poor, but you are rewarded with tranquility when you got there. We shared a wooden garden house, which is lovely, nice furnitured and well maintained. The staff is very friendly and helpfull in organising tours. We felt most welcome. Overall it was I nice and recommendable experience.

The food is great . The staff is good . All the goodness stops here. One of our friend fell down from the swing and hurt his back. Firstly the swing of s not set on soft ground but has concrete slabs . So no concern for safety . Worse is such a secluded resort and they do not have a proper first aid box too . On asking for some ointment / oil they said the massage room is locked so they have no oil or anything to apply. No do for or anyone there . No concern for the person . Even to get a hot water bottle was a struggle. Not acceptable such an attitude from a hotel which claims to be 5 star. The access to the hotel is extremely bad . Not to be visited .

On our first day, a workman was painting the decking area near the pool with strong varnish. I tolerated that even though I felt it was completely wrong to carry out DIY as we were attempting to sun bathe and relax. On the evening when we went to our room we were met with a very heavy musty smell - one of damp. On inspection our bed linen and duvet were wet/damp. The duvet as we discovered had black mould on it. We were moved into an alternative room (same odour) and when I raised the complaint the next morning I was met nonchalantly by a disinterested manager on the front desk who hastened me to pay and told me to take up my complaint with Booking.com. I telephoned Booking.com several times in December and January and was told by Booking.com today (Feb 5th) after I was told in January that I should expect a full refund that I' be given £20. The hotel refused to give me a full refund as we had already stayed one night. ADVICE (and my lesson learned), if you have a bad experience with a room in India 'do not pay'. We spent 3 weeks in 5 star hotels and this was the poorest experience. I will post images of the mouldy bed covers.

Breathtaking view from my tree house in morning with birds charming you and waking you up. Different experience of living in the middle of forest. Worth spending time with your family and friends. The only drawback is the price is on a bit higher side which impacts your budget

We recently returned from a 3-week trip in India staying at 8 different hotels, and Niraamaya Cardamom Club was hands-down our favorite place we stayed. The location a bit out of the town of Kumily up a small mountain road is well worth it for the peaceful setting of the property. We stayed in a Mountain View Cottage, which was beautifully designed and very clean. As it is a small property, the hotel was very quiet and we slept so well, and the staff is incredibly attentive to the needs of guests. We thought the food from the al-la-carte restaurant was excellent. As we were traveling from the USA and not driving in India, we especially appreciated all the help from Indu who manages the property in booking activities, and our driver Chandran for helping us get around Thekkady and navigating things like getting into Periyar National Park and onto worthwhile tours. We loved the time we spent at Niraamaya Cardamom Club, and will be recommending the property and hotel chain to any friends or family traveling to Kerala!

Upon arrival the staff were fantastic hosts - friendly, fun, and warm. The accommodations were excellent. I recommend the Mountain View rooms; the views of the valley and lush mountain hills are breathtaking. The food was excellent - a vast menu and everything was delicious and beautifully plated. Our kids are picky eaters and they enjoyed themselves, both at dinner and breakfast. The pool is beautiful. I highly recommend Niraamaya Cardamom Club!!
