Indien Hermitage
Ranked #27 of 30 Hotels in Kanyakumari
Reviewed 10 June 2011

We went there on our family vacation and loved every bit of 24 hours we'd spent

The resort is surrounded by Mountains and as a family we felt in real close connect in nature

Where else in this world you get to hear the music of winds and rainfall @ 1800 bucks (40 USD)

Add to that the personalised attention of hotel onwer Mr Raju with his great knowledge of local histroy & culuture and lip smacking meals by their chef (don't miss the tea & onion pakora's at sunset)

Also it's one of those resorts where with every passing hour the expereince keeps getting better, but with limited staff at resort be prepared for slow check in/out/housekeeping and basic restaurant

If you need any particular dish, the wise option will be to write to them in advance

if you're traveling with kids take them for a bird/peacock watching walk in their jungle area

Room Tip: Breakfast atop their watertank

Location a bit remote especially at night but that is what makes it a secluded, peaceful place to relax, recharge and enjoy nature. Surrounded by mountains. We had a great time just being in our room or walking the grounds.

We discovered this hotel on one of the Indian travel portals. Though the access/approach to the Hotel was extremely challenging; particularly in the night, it turned out to be a wonderful destination to stay. The Hotel is in complete sync with the nature, barring those few hours that they have to run the diesel generator for powering the hotel when the grid supply is turned off. The hotel should consider leveraging wind energy, being in an excellent wind zone. The Hotel staff, though very informal were more than forthcoming, served great food and helped us with check-in , check out. The welcome tea/coffee was excellent. The traveler may want to carry battery powered torch light or something of that sort; should the hotel go dark while walking out of the room.
The access road is pretty bad, watch out for bumps and obstruction, safe with bigger vehicles. The Hotel has ample parking space.
Was a great experience in all !

the place though off the road and slightly inaccessible is one recommended for a quiet stay with some homely food thrown in. a delight for those who love south indian food. the swimming pool was not working when we went but the location, the rooms and the personal attention of the manager was excellent. if you have acar at your service it is ideal.

During our recent holidays in Southern India we stayed in Hotel Indien Hermitage, Kanyakumari. The hotel is about 14 km from Kanyakumari town and is located in a serene village called Marungoor. I like places far away from city crowd when i go out for vacations.
Reaching to Indien Hermitage was a challenge to us as it is situated quite inside the village and due to language problem we drove around about 2 hours in finding the right direction that too when hotel staff politely and patiently kept guiding us on phone.
We were frustrated but the hotel owner Mr S Raju with his manager received us at the hotel gate itself and made us feel comfortable before shifting us to our cottage.
The hotel is surrounded by hills and trees. Our cottage was very neat and clean with all the comforts. All the cottages have wide windows on both sides of the rooms overlooking scenic surroundings. Bathrooms are also big and neat.
The BEST PART of this hotel is its huge and well maintained swimming pool. Though the facilities for lounging around it were missing!
All seemed ok about this hotel except the food it served. They badly need a good cook and should offer local cuisines in which they are expert instead of trying their hands on north indian dishes which was a total fiasco.
We informed them about this and the other minor improvements the hotel requires in its service and maintenance area.
To our delight Mr. S Raju and his manager took our feedback in a very positive manner and promised us to work on it. Mr S. Raju also apologized for any discomfort we faced during our stay. We wished him good luck as we really liked the man’s attitude and willingness to make his customers feel at home.
Overall, I would recommend this hotel to all the people who love serenity and want to spend some peaceful moments with nature away from city life’s hustle bustle..
