 Kerala

A serene and stylish retreat set in the dappled shade of a sleepy coconut grove on the pristine shores of the Arabian sea; the blissfully unspoilt Malabar coastline off Northern Kerala.

Indulge in the quintessential barefoot luxury experience in Kerala India, the tranquil hideaway where boutique chic meets Vedic wellness to create complete relaxation for the body and soul. Immerse yourself in stillness and nourish your soul.

Surrounded by lush gardens of hibiscus and frangipani, light and airy palm-roofed cottages blend traditional Keralan architecture with contemporary design. The luxurious indoor-outdoor bathroom is filled with natural products and the in-room i-pod is loaded with cool sounds to match this serene resort. Secluded verandahs catch the sea breeze and far-reaching views of the deserted golden coastline.

Spot dolphins diving in the sea whilst reclining by the infinity pool, re-align your chakras at the yoga pavilion lulled by the sounds of the surf, and on a long beach walk, be mesmerised by flocks of sea birds swooping over the ocean. Feel the sand between your toes at the beachside restaurant as the glorious golden globe of the setting sun sinks into the horizon.

Whether you choose to while away the day dozing in a hammock, exploring ancient temples, learning the secrets of Keralan cuisine, or immersing yourself in the dedicated Ayurvedic Priya spa, the warm and welcoming staff are always at hand.

Accommodations

The luxurious accommodation is modelled on traditional fishermen’s huts. Each of the beautiful cottages offers privacy, comfort and individuality. You can choose from cottages with sea, pool or garden views, each with its own unique character.

Each building is positioned amidst the verdant foliage to give its occupants a sense of peace and privacy; light and airy, each is named after a traditional yogic virtue. Constructed in local laterite stone and topped by tile or thatch, all are embellished with carved and dressed woodwork fashioned in traditional style by local craftsmen so skilled that their usual work is building and restoring temples.

Teak floors, high ceilings and generous proportions, locally handmade wooden furniture and antique and contemporary objets d’art from Kerala, complete the ambience, giving this destination its own special charm.  Yet despite the timeless construction of our cottages, every modern comfort is supplied. Sleep deeply in large, comfortable beds which can be arranged as a double or twins as required. Bathe in the open air in your own outdoor bathroom or relax in a private plunge pool. Sip tea on the shaded veranda of your accommodation and drink in the scenery.

All cottages have luxurious toiletries, hairdryers and bottled drinking water.

Dining

We believe that good food makes a good life and given Kerala’s history and cultural diversity, are able to draw on an extraordinarily varied cuisine, incorporating Indian, Middle-Eastern and European flavours. Authentic, Delicious & Nutritional.

Annapurna

The Annapurna restaurant, dedicated to the Goddess of Nourishment, is the centre of the site. Annapurna specialises in authentic, predominantly vegetarian food not usually seen in hotels.

Our cooking skills are honed by Ayurvedic teaching on the importance of attending to the appearance, balance, flavour, enjoyment and nutritional effects of any dish.

The Annapurna dining room consumes virtually no energy. Its elegant pillared lateral spaces are open to the verdant gardens on all sides, allowing a sea-cooled breeze to circulate, while the warmer air is released upwards through the large, open light well that stands in the centre of the hall. With such natural ventilation secured, there is no need for air-conditioning, which is very costly in energy terms, and during the day, no need for any electricity. What light is needed after dark is subdued and comes from small and localised sources, while the dining tables and sitting areas are lit by candles.

Yoga

Zoe and Jane are senior yoga teachers with Yoga Alliance UK with a wealth of experience qualified in many different yoga disciplines, including Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Zen, Yin, Aerial, Trapeze, Sup Yoga, Aqua Yoga and Face Yoga.

Our yoga classes will take place either in the covered Patanjali Yoga Hall overlooking the beach or open air Yoga Pavillion which is again overlooking the beach.

Both the places are based on the concept of light, space and air, offering fine views of the ocean while providing a calm and tranquil atmosphere lulled by the sound of the waves.

Our morning Yoga practice will start each day, with Pranayama, Mindfulness Meditation and Asana. The Asana practice will be a flowing class, much emphasis will be placed on the breath, helping you to achieve a moving meditational practice, calming both body and mind.

The afternoon session will be designed around different workshops, our special tips and tricks will allow you to achieve those poses you’ve been wanting to do!!

Time for you to ask questions, and of course lots of laughs!!
