Niraamaya Retreats Surya Samudra

Kovalam | Deluxe

The Niraamaya Surya Samudra sits perched on a clifftop overlooking the Arabian Sea and two secluded beaches. This intimate retreat is close enough to the popular resort of Kovalam to easily venture in for a bite to eat, but far enough away to experience serious peace and tranquillity.

To assist in maximum relaxation the Niraamaya’s cliff-edge, infinity swimming pool enjoys soporific sea views; the yoga pavilion is perfectly positioned to aid serenity; its’ Keralan-style cottages are soundproofed, and dotted amidst the coconut palms to maximise privacy (more on these later…). However when it comes to unwinding, the property’s piece de resistance is its’ award-winning spa. The extensive spa menu focuses on Ayurvedic and traditional Indian treatments, offering everything from a rejuvenating 30-minute massage, to a full pampering day, to 28-day dedicated wellness programmes that combine therapies with spa cuisine and yoga.

In terms of accommodation, Niraamaya Surya Samudra rather uniquely comprises of traditional Keralan ‘tharavads’ (wooden cottages) that were carefully transported from all over the region to Niraamaya’s palm-dotted location, where they were meticulously restored and positioned to blend in to the natural surrounds. Modern amenities, such as a flat screen TV and air-con, have been tastefully incorporated into the predominantly teak wood décor. If you’re looking for a room with a sea view, book a Heritage Premium room, the cliff-front Octagon Suite or Banyan Tree Bungalow.

Whilst we’re talking sea views, these can also be enjoyed from Niraamaya’s two eateries. Café Samsara offers a menu of Keralan specialities and international dishes in a relaxed atmosphere overlooking the pool; the more formal Essence restaurant serves south-east Asian cuisine and boasts uninterrupted sea views from its clifftop setting. Both menus focus on locally sourced produce and the chefs meet every morning with local fisherman to pick the catch of the day. The poolside bar is the place to be at sunset!
