Embracing local culture and architecture, Niraamaya Retreats creates bespoke luxurious slices of experience for its guests and offers a holistic getaway from the daily business of urban living.
The perfect and premium choice for relaxation and rejuvenation, Niraamaya Retreats—whose private boutique properties are located in beauteous destinations in Kerala, Goa and Nagaland—offer stunning hideaways for a holistic, transformative experience. Each retreat, in its unique way, embraces local influences and native culture and incorporating these, transforms the stay experience into a luxurious slice of life.
Interestingly, all the retreats are infused with elements from native architecture that are unique to the region—and some of these are features that are slowly becoming extinct in a swiftly changing world. Creating patches of what can be called vernacular beauty of the best kind, Niraamaya Retreats reference age-old building styles and synergise these wonderfully with the landscape and climate.
Even though the soul that rests in them is as old as the hills, its manifestation is in structures that are contemporary, elegant, comfortable and luxurious. So, even as a guest steps into the retreats’ buildings—big and small—that are reminiscent of ancient times, he or she is enveloped by all the comforts that our millennium boasts of.
Creating A Unique Footprint
This millennium has seen a drastic shift in how people travel. Discerning tourists want to dive into experiential travel that goes beyond conventional five-star stays. They seek a getaway from the chaos of urban living in unique addresses that draw from the local culture, even as they combine all the amenities that a modern-day traveller seeks. And this is what Niraamaya Retreats is renowned for—a creation of an oasis that gives one the best of many worlds.
Recreating Kerala’s colonial past at Niraamaya Retreats – Backwaters & Beyond, Kumarakom
While the overall design of each retreat balances luxury and elegance with aesthetic grace and restraint, the individual properties stand out, defined by the ethos of the location in which they are housed. At Niraamaya Retreats – Backwaters & Beyond, Kumarakom, an influence of Kerala’s classical and colonial past is visible. The structures draw from the former, while its fixtures —wooden furniture, planter’s chairs, loungers and four-poster beds are hugely colonial in feel and appearance.
The retreat is enveloped by Kerala’s profuse scenic beauty. With terracotta-painted faces dotting walls throughout the property, its plush villas offer picture-perfect views of the pool, the lake or the waterfront—and serve with style what they have promised: an unforgettable getaway from the bustle of everyday life.
