Set in eight acres of lush tropical gardens, overlooking the famed Lake Vembanad, the Niraamaya Retreats Backwaters & Beyond offers varied experiences centred around and beyond the Backwaters of Kumarakom. The retreat’s design maintains local architectural style featuring traditional motifs like sloped roofing, clay tiled roofs, and has an extensive use of stone, laterite and local timber.
Cobbled stone pathways unwind their way through the landscape to the scattered villas and the Backwaters. The relaxing living spaces feature private pools and are in complete harmony with nature amidst breezy coconut palms and tropical foliage.
Guests can savour gourmet cuisine overlooking the lake, dive deep into the region’s vibrant rural culture, and indulge in pure rejuvenation with curated wellness therapies. Niraamaya’s renowned wellness concept is a prominent feature at the serene retreat with dedicated Ayurveda Rooms offering holistic treatments, combining best practices of Ayurveda. Signature experiences include having tea by the lakeside at sunset, cooking sessions with the chef, Kumarakom village experiences, and the houseboat sunset cruise.
