Four friends travelled to India from various corners of the globe to spend time together relaxing and pampering. It was amazing! We paid extra to make sure our accommodation (beach view) was perfect, and our cottages were next to each other. The king size beds were big

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing your review about us - I am so delighted that you had a wonderful time at Niraamaya. It is nice to hear the retreat being endorsed for its perfect settings and the team's hospitality during your stay. We appreciate you sharing many aspects of your stay that you enjoyed and delighted with your feedback. Our team appreciates those kind words. With respect to the port construction, we understand that port construction distracted the beautiful view of the ocean and peacefulness of the retreat. The port is being built by the government and we really have no control. We empathize and are truly sorry that you had to endure the disruption. We look forward to welcoming you back at the Niraamaya Retreats, Kovalam and highly recommend our other retreats in Kumarakom, Thekkady and Kohima on your next vacation. Warm regards, Anurag Batra
