Niraamaya Retreats Backwaters & Beyond is one of the most beautiful waterfront retreats in Kumarakom, nestled on the banks of Lake Vembanad. Set amidst 8 acres of lush tropical gardens, the retreat houses ten dedicated Ayurveda Rooms offering holistic treatments, set amidst breezy coconut palms. Privacy, relaxation, and rejuvenation await you. 

The retreat has well-appointed superior rooms and a choice of villas with  uninterrupted views of the lake. Some villas have their own private pool. There is a choice of dining at the lake-facing Cafe Samsara and specialty cuisine at Essence restaurant. 

There is a world-class wellness spa rooted in Kerala’s ancient wellness practices. Blending a range of traditional and contemporary therapies, Niraamaya offers personalised health and wellness experiences tailored to your requirements. 

Other facilities include a large outdoor swimming pool, evening cultural performances, and a fitness centre.

Kumarakom is a cluster of many small man-made islands around Vembanad Lake. Travellers get a refreshing view of the paddy fields, indulge in fishing, take a boat ride in a network of backwaters, and relish delicious local cuisine. You can explore the area on a houseboat ride and discover Kumarakom bird sanctuary.

The rates are on a room and breakfast basis.
