Neeleshwar Hermitage, Malabar

Set in 12 acres of beautiful gardens this boutique hotel is a hidden tropical hideaway in northern Kerala.

The 18 traditional fisherman-style thatched cottages are large, airy and beautifully decorated with natural materials, each with its own private courtyard garden.

When it comes to eating, Neeleshwar believes that ''good food makes a good life'' so expect healthy, fresh options.

The elegant and relaxing Priya Ayurvedic Spa is restorative after a day exploring the unspoiled waterways and countryside of this delightful region, or simply relaxing in the peaceful surrounds.

Or, start the day with a relaxing yoga session looking out to the Arabian Sea. Well-known for its award-winning yoga, guests can enjoy 5, 7 or 12 day yoga programmes or these can be personalised entirely for you.
