From the moment we booked our vacation to the time we left, Niraamaya has been an amazing experience. We stayed in the Rock Garden rooms and when we opened the doors, our jaws dropped--it was that beautiful. The property itself is absolutely stunning. The beach, the pool, the gardens, mountain views--all spectacular.
The restaurant was great--with a wide variety of dishes to choose from (south indian, north indian, western, etc). The dishes are very pricey for India. Liquor selection is limited. Food taste was great and service was even better. Special thanks to Shafeeq, Sarathlal, Deepak, and Siju for their excellent service.
We were able to book a number of getaways from the hotel itself. With the help of Anitha, we were able to see Kanyakumari, backwaters and elephant rides in Poovar, and take a city tour of Thiruvananthapuram. Thank you Anitha for making our trip so memorable.
We took advantage of the great spa they have, having had multiple ayurvedic treatments (massage, shirodhara, facials) and they were all excellent.
The best thing about this hotel, by far, is their customer service. They are so very nice and they made a trip fantastic. Thank you all!
