Niraamaya Retreats Cardamom Club is a remote hideaway nestled in a cardamom plantation that offers both adrenaline-fuelled adventure and a peaceful retreat. Perched amidst 9 acres of cardamom plantations, verdant groves and lush foliage, our cottage retreat exudes intensely private vibes. The cool and crisp mountain air, the musical calls of exotic birds and the beautiful scenery of Thekkady will revive the senses and leave you enchanted. Niraamaya spa infused with timeless therapeutic traditions from across the world, centred around Ayurveda is the perfect destination for rejuvenation after long treks or exhausting safaris. Cardamom Club which is in complete harmony with nature immensely helps to amplify the therapeutic processes of spa therapies. In-between lounging on hammocks or tucking into gorgeous meals, we highly recommend spice walks and treks to explore the stunning landscape of Thekkady.

Great spa experience The spa treatment here was amazing. I was attended by Athira and Rijeesh who took great care. We took shirodhara treatment which was very relaxing.

My wife and I had booked in a cooking lesson from Australia. On the day, we decided to have lunch there at the resort restaurant before the class at 3 in the afternoon. The lunch was superlative and the very serene environment certainly added to the pleasure…and we couldn’t fault the welcome and the service we received. After a very leisurely and flavoursome lunch of kerala dishes, we proceeded with the cooking class with Chef Sundar whilst the very attentive and helpful Indu helped with all aspects of the class. Chef Sundar took us through the preparation of 6 dishes, all done with ease in about 50 minutes and then Sundar and indu sat us down to taste each of the dishes we’d cooked…each one was outstanding the the lesson was well worth it - perhaps we should have eaten a lighter lunch to savour the dishes better but Indu helped us take away a packed dinner so we were assured a brilliant dinner too! All the dishes were in traditional kerala style and Sundar explained how he personalised the dishes with learnings from his mother and grandmother as well as using his own 17 years of experience to enhance tradition tonal recipes but with care and respect and small tweaks. The entire crew were caring, hospitable and professional and we definitely had one of the best culinary experiences in India. ***** for sure!

This was our first opportunity to try out the Niraamaya experience. It was highly coincidental that we ended up booking a stay at Niraamaya Retreats Cardamom Club, Thekkady. However, after the hospitality we received, a future intentional visit is almost certain. How to reach? Google map shows the correct location; just search for "Niraamaya Retreats Cardamom Club". If you are coming from Vandiperiyar, after 10km, you need to turn into a byroad on the right (beside Springvalley Post Office). It is a 2km byroad which is a little bit bumpy but still accessible by all cars. A small parking area is available for 6-7 cars. The Staff The highlight of the facility was the attitude of the staff members. Everyone was very pleasant and really helpful, giving a sense of comfort to a level which we have not previously experienced. The Resort There are 2 types of cottages, Garden View (concrete) and Mountain View (wooden structure on stilts). Both have all the amenities you would expect in a 5 star resort. All cottages are located along the side of the mountain encased in a natural greenery. There is an infinity pool, a spa and a restaurant overlooking the pool. Overall the ambience is awesome; an excellent opportunity to bond with nature. It is well maintained, neat and hygienic. Activities Periyar tiger reserve, elephant sanctuary, boating etc are available close by. A spice garden is also there near the resort. You can also visit a performance arts centre where cultural forms such as Kathakali and Kalari are performed. Overall, we are extremely happy with the property. A big thank you to all the staff members for such a memorable experience.

I booked this resort through the CRED app. Wasn't sure how it would be. I had heard that Niraamaya was a great place, but I still had my doubts. We reached Niraamaya on 16th September, Friday. I must tell you that from the time we began our journey to Niraamaya, they were quite good with follow-ups and the best part was that they kept us informed about their services and time. When we reached Niraamaya, we got the warmest welcome from the receptionist-Indu and the staff. Mr. Sundar was their Chef and must say their food is yum! The waiter Jyothis, Shijin were excellent with their service. The best part is that they do it with a heart and are quite proactive, which is quite rare at resorts nowadays. Something that really touched us was the little Bon voyage brownie they made especially for us! The Niraamaya Experience was a beautiful one and is going to stay with us for a very long time!
