Things to Do:
Niraamaya Retreat has a wonderful spa! Each trip, we took one day to just relax, go to the spa, eat good food, and go to the resort beach. Take a good book, because the relaxation spots are incredible. One day, while relaxing in a hammock, one of the staff members literally climbed the coconut tree next to us and cut down a few coconuts. Then, cut off the top, put a straw in it ,and handed it to me! I'm not really into coconut, but it was a cool experience.
Kerala, India is known for it's backwater tours. Niraamya can set up a boat tour for you. On our first trip, we took a 1/2 day tour. It was a relaxing activity for the day. Take your sunscreen, water, snacks, and camera!
During our 2014 visit, we spent a day at Kovalam Beach. As we arrived, the fishermen were bringing in their fishing nets. We took that time to sit, watch, plan our afternoon, and apply sunscreen! While at Kovalam beach, you can eat, shop, and take surfing lessons. So fun!
Is food included in your room package? It will just depend on your package. The food is amazing at the resort. So, you'll want to plan for that. We love to splurge on food while on vacation! The resort has indian and western food. Delicious!
