Neeleshwar Hermitage
Neeleshwar Hermitage Kasargod is a hidden tropical destination set in a secluded palm grove beside the Arabian Sea in Northern Kerala. The luxurious hotel offers you the essence of authentic India: its friendliness, hospitality and serenely balanced lifestyle. At this rejuvenating beach hotel you enter a utopia far removed from the pressures of everyday living. Unobtrusive individual service and meticulous attention to detail of this luxury resort will turn your holiday into an effortless opportunity to enjoy a world where time stands still.
Neeleshwar Hermitage Kasargod consist of 18 detached cottages offering privacy, comfort and individuality. These cottages are modelled on traditional fishermen's huts. They offers Twin Garden View, Twin Sea View and Single Cottages each with its unique character and refinement.

Each cottage is positioned in such a way that it gives the occupants a sense of supreme privacy. Cottages are light and airy, with teak floors, high ceiling and generous proportions and embellished with locally handmade furniture. Four garden­view cottages provides beautiful views over the fertile gardens. These cottages are fit for families or parties who would like to be together.

Each room is decorated with both traditional and contemporary objects and art with a resulting elegance and individuality. The buildings are constructed in the local laterite and thatch, with carved and dressed woodwork fashioned in traditional style by local craftsmen so skilled that their usual work is building and restoring temples. These craftsmen have also produced the handmade furniture too.

Here at Neeleshwar Hermitage you can sit and see the early morning dolphins, the birds over the small lagoon, get lulled by the sound of the waves or spend the evening under the brilliant canopy of stars along with enjoying the authentic, delicious and nutritional dining here. You can enjoy at:
The Annapurna restaurant, dedicated to the Goddess of Nourishment, is the centre of the Neeleshwaram Hermitage Kasargod. Annapurna specialises in authentic, predominantly vegetarian food not usually seen in hotels. The cooking skills are honed by ayurvedic teaching on the importance of attending to the appearance, balance, flavour, enjoyment and nutritional effects of any dish.
Meenakshi, the beach side restaurant is named after another local goddess. Here you can enjoy superb fresh fish caught by the local long boats that go out each morning, as well as breakfast, healthy lunchtime salads and delicious light meals.
Bar and Drinks
There are two bar areas in the hotel: the Annapurna bar in the main restaurant and the Varuna bar overlooking the pool. Both are cosy and intimate spaces where you can relax with old friends or make new ones and enjoy the range of Indian beers and wines (no spirits) that are on sale.
