Kerala offers a unique travel experience for anyone wanting to go on a wellness retreat. This is the serene India, a tranquil oasis full of yoga, meditation and Ayurveda lessons and retreats. It’s the perfect location for anyone wanting to experience a restorative retreat in India. One place you might like to consider visiting on a spiritual trip to India is the new retreat Niraamaya Wellness Retreat.
Niraamaya Retreats Backwaters & Beyond, Kumarakom opened towards the end of 2019. It’s situated near the village of Kumarakom, a popular tourist destination near the popular tourism destination of Kottayam. There, the beautiful Vembanad Lake and canals host one of the best spiritual destinations in all of India. 27 villas across eight acres of land with coconut palms and pools. Sit by the lake and watch the sunset while meditating and you’ll have some idea of what nirvana is. The villas are luxurious too, reaching up to an impressive 1500 square feet.
Everyone loves travelling to beautiful landscapes, and certainly this destination provides precisely that. But the difference maker is the ayurvedic practices you’ll get to indulge in here (although I will say that restaurant Cage Samsara is also a real treat—the spicy coconut gravy is to die for).
The 5000 year old Indian healing system Ayurveda is becoming highly popular at the moment, as more and more people seek more natural cures to health problems. If you want to experience the best of the Indian healing system, Niramaaya Retreats is definitely a good place to do it. The very name itself is derived from Ayurveda. Niramaya means “free from sickness”. The Ayurveda retreat offers all manner of Ayurvedic therapies, including a “panchakarma” body purification and detoxification program, and a program titled “Slim Body By Ayurveda” (something I myself could do with at the moment).
There are also more general wellness programs, including yoga, mindfulness and fitness courses that promote wellness. The team is full of ayurvedic doctors, therapists, and yogis. Not to mention the chef, who makes some simply divine curries.
Anyone wanting to experience Ayurveda should definitely consider Niraamaya Wellness Retreats. The combination of natural beauty and excellent health programs makes it a very worthwhile trip.
