The pandemic has taken a toll on our sense of well-being in all sorts of ways. Social distancing has played havoc with our daily routines, the boon of visiting people and places has no longer been possible. Given the restrictions of the last eighteen months, it was such a relief to learn that Neeleshwar Hermitage, Kerala’s premier retreat hotel, had decided to open its doors to guests again. And as a traveller who considers themselves a responsible citizen, it was heartening when I was making a booking to be assured that all the necessary measures had been taken to ensure the health and peace of mind of their guests. The place felt totally safe.
What I like about Neeleshwar is that they do not aim for the standard pampering package, but offer a genuine awakening of mind, body and spirit, a growth in awareness that will have lasting effects well after your holiday is over.
The pandemic has left many of us stressed out and out of sorts. My stay at Neeleshwar was just the balm I needed to heal both body and soul. It provided me with the perfect ambience and the privacy to reconnect with myself and the world at large. The expansive setting and the discreet and dedicated personal service will stay long in my memory. And everyone can benefit from this jewel of a place, whether you want a quiet space to be on your own or are looking to spend quality time with your family or friends.
