My wife and I had a 5 days escape from Dubai in Kerala in January 2013. Niraamaya Resorts, the owner of the Cardamom Club and of another beautiful property in Kovalam, greeted us and pampered us for 5 days making our trip unforgettable.
After a rather long ride throughout Kerala from Colombo (4 hours) we eventually reached Cardamom Club, a lovely nest in the green hearth of Kerala. Great attention to guests (only 6 beautiful bungalows are available), great silence, Ayurvedic spa and lovely cuisine, Indian and international.
Bungalows are nice, well refined and comfortable, with a spacious bathroom area.
The offered trip at the Peryar reserve allowed us to see great landscapes and wild animals. Personnel gave us the highest attention we have ever had in many years of travel, taking us through the property, which actually is a cardamom plantation, explaining all about botanic and cultural aspects, preparing for us a lovely candle light dinner, and assisting in any kind of need (shopping, travel, elephant ride etc.).
After two days of that heaven we were very sad to leave, but the great Kovalam resort was waiting for us! I would recommend to anybody wishing to visit Kerala to have both Niraamaya experiences and to visit both Tekkady and Kovalam.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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 6-cottage retreat exudes intensely private vibes. The windows of the rustic plantation-style cottages serve as a gateway to the exotic wildlife. 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.
