Best of the backwaters
Niraamaya Retreats Backwaters & Beyond offers a spectacular window into what makes the famed backwaters of Kerala famous.
The search for unique geographies has held a special allure for humankind over centuries, and it would be hard not to put Kerala’s backwaters amongst the top on this list. Lake Vembanad, Kerala’s largest and best-known backwater, is a world unto itself, best enjoyed via a stay at the Niraamaya Retreats Backwaters & Beyond.
The romantic lakefront retreat is spread over eight acres of lush tropical gardens, and houses 27 luxurious villas in different configurations designed to maximize the glorious views of the lake. Do not miss the traditional furniture and art in the rooms, which make the stay even more atmospheric. Across the retreat, meandering pathways lead to tasteful spaces that are in complete harmony with nature amidst breezy coconut palms and tropical foliage.
Wellness remains at the core of any Niraamaya stay, and a number of world-class wellness experiences await you here. The spa is rooted in Kerala’s ancient wellness practices and offers traditional Ayurveda, Asian and contemporary international therapies. Additionally, there is a large outdoor swimming pool, a performance deck and a fitness centre. Yes, there are two gourmet restaurants within the retreat offering regional and global cuisines.
Of course, no experience here is complete without sailing on the tranquil waters of Lake Vembanad. Myriad types of boats let you get a feel of different sides of these magnificent backwaters, something not to be missed. Just like this very exclusive retreat.
