How to experience the magic

Discover the myriad, mesmerising experiences on offer at Niraamaya Retreats Surya Samudra, Kovalam even as you rejuvenate yourself

At a prime location overlooking the serene Arabian Sea, the flagship resort of the group, Niraamaya Retreats Surya Samudra, Kovalam, is a getaway like none other. Perched on a cliff edge, the pristine Relais & Châteaux property combines the best of multiple worlds. Rejuvenate with a number of our curated offerings – from therapeutic treatments, luxuriate in the signature, award-winning spa experiences, do yoga by the sea, sample fresh, local cuisine, stroll through the tranquil grounds, get to glimpse local heritage and of course, have the best of traditional Kerala hospitality delivered at global standards.

The resort offers a number of bespoke experiences, designed to enhance any stay. You could go with Chef Prakash to the nearby docks to select the fresh catch of the day. Or get someone to pluck you a coconut straight from the tree. Take a walk along spice plantations and get to see up close where the aromatic cardamom, clove or pepper grow. Witness exquisite handloom textiles being woven.

The area around the resort is stunning too. Walk among the soft sands of the rolling beaches, sail through lush backwaters – with joyous kids playing around, watch coconut palms swinging in the breeze, partake in local crafts or just sit by the sea as it merges with the brilliant hues of the sky creating magical sunsets. Magic is at your service, any way you prefer it.
