Located only 40kms from Kochi is the stunning Athirapilly falls, Kerala’s most famous and largest waterfalls. Embraced by lush forests and rugged hills, Niraamaya Retreats Samroha offers stunning views of the Athirappilly falls plunging into river Chalakudy.
Samroha offers a selection of rooms, suites, cottages, and villas, some with river and others with waterfall views. The infinity swimming pool is perched on the cliff and enjoys panoramic views of the valley and the waterfalls. The retreat features an all-day dining restaurant offering regional Keralan dishes, Pan-Asian delicacies, and custom-made fares as well as a lounge bar to spend relaxed evenings, where one can watch the cascading waterfalls.
The pace is extremely laid back and the watchword here is ‘slow living’ coupled with nature immersion thanks to the therapeutic and calming natural environs.
Deep restorative massage therapies by Niraamaya Spa and early morning yoga sessions help guests relax and rejuvenate, while the thoughtfully designed delightful garden in the central courtyard offers meditation spaces overlooking the river bank. A tour of the trio waterfalls of Athirappilly – Charpa – Vazhachal, allows for more time with region’s natural bounty. Other experiences include birdwatching, fishing, cooking and tribal village tours.
