Neeleshwar Hermitage
Neeleshwar

Tucked away in a secluded palm grove on the Arabian Sea, the delightful Neeleshwar Hermitage is one of our favourite properties in Southern India.

Overlooking an unspoiled beach, the Neeleshwar Hermitage oozes understated sophistication in a tranquil coastal environment. Each guest room is housed in a traditional Keralan style thatched cottage with a private courtyard garden, balcony and outdoor bathroom and they blend modern convenience with beautiful teak floors, handmade furniture and antiques. When not out and about, the hotel has a beautiful swimming pool overlooking the beach along with a traditional spa where the treatments range from Ayurveda to organic facials, scrubs and wraps, aromatherapy and Indian massages.

Meal times at the Neeleshwar Hermitage as a simple yet delicious affair. With two restaurants to choose from; Annapurna (vegetarian Indian) and Meenakshi (fish restaurant on the beach) there is something to satisfy everyone. For those who want to learn how to cook traditional Keralan dishes, there is the opportunity to take a lesson with one of Neeleshwar’s chefs. Complimentary wifi is available.

Travelling is like flirting with life. It's like saying, 'I would stay and love you, but I have to go; this is my station.

Client Testimonials

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
