Surya Samudra Niraamaya Retreats

The sun, the sea, and the miles of pristine beaches that surround the Surya Samudra in Kovalam is every beach resort lover's ultimate dream.

Set on a premonitory, between two deserted beaches and overlooking the azure Arabian sea, this cosy and classy resort offers travellers a tranquil world of isolation in the most awe-inspiring setting. The lush, landscaped tropical gardens insulate the resort from the hustle and bustle of the busy seaside villages and the secluded beaches promise to leave you mesmerised.

Having recently undergone a major refurbishment, the Surya Samudra now offers even better and more enticing features than ever before. Included are heritage style private cottages called 'Tharavadus', whose design is based on the principle of being in harmony with nature, be it in the play of light and air inside or in the flowery, fruit-laden garden outside. The terracotta roofs, tiled floors, wooden pillars, and ornate doors evoke a heady sense of romance with the past. Every article of furniture, painting, and decoration is a handpicked page out of history whilst providing travellers with all modern amenities. Some of these residences stand graciously on a cliff offering magnificent views of the sea, others sit snugly in palm groves that dot the hillside.

A natural swimming pool carved out of rock and decorated with temple sculptures, gives a rare, once-in-a-lifetime experience of swimming in surroundings like those of royalty of the past. Then there are also the restaurants overlooking the sea which offer delectable international and local cuisine, not forgetting the poolside bar, which gives you the opportunity to let your hair down.
