Neeleshwar Hermitage, Kerala

A Black Tomato favorite, Neeleshwar Hermitage reveals its treasures at a leisurely pace, enabling you to take in and appreciate each one. Wake up to the sight of dolphins enjoying the first glimpse of the morning sun and relish the undisturbed rhythm of life at the hotel spa.


Settled by the Arabian Sea in northern Kerala; an area traditionally known as Malabar, Neeleshwar Hermitage is perfectly located on a beach fringed with coconut plantations. The perfect place to experience authentic India, hole up in this idyllic haven in the inland waterways of this unique part of the country.

Your room

Neeleshwar Hermitage is home to just eighteen boutique cottages, each completely private and boasting individuality. Made from local laterite and thatch, your room also host hand crafted furniture with woodwork fashioned in a traditional style. In the Indian sun, sit out on your private veranda or gently rock in a hammock and if the heat becomes too much, retire to your airy haven and listen to the soundtrack of the waves.

Why we like it

The food at Neeleshwar Hermitage is exquisite and completely in keeping with its restaurant’s name, Annapura, meaning the goddess of nourishment, each dish is organic and suitably mouth-watering. We also love how Neeleshwar Hermitgae goes the extra mile to make your stay that little bit more personal, how about getting a hand-made, bespoke garment made by the hotel’s tailor as a unique memento?
