I have never felt so comfortable in an accommodation as in Hinterland. The food was perfect, the yoga classes and meditations really relaxed me, and the massages were pure pleasure. I particularly appreciate the warmth and effort of the staff. Every wish was granted. I'm beyond excited.
Outstanding from start to finish. We planned to stay for a week and ended up staying for two weeks. Wonderful yoga, meditation, massage and outstanding pure veg food. Unni, the host, is the best! Taking care of all needs with a smile. Highly recommended.
I spent my new year in Hinterlands and the week after it. It was a beautiful experience. From the massages and the meals to the yoga classes and interactions with everyone on the property, it was absolutely worth my first trip to Kerala. The place is engulfed in serenity, imagine birds chirping and trees swaying in the afternoon wind. You can choose to relax with a glass of coconut water and skip some yoga classes or dive right in. For yoga enthusiasts, there are classes on yoga, yoga philosophy, and meditation scheduled very frequently. I loved the meditation classes by Jayesh. I was there for every single one of them. My friends loved the yoga classes with Swami more. Lastly, the meals used to be the highlight of my day. Authentic dishes cooked from vegetables that were grown on the property itself. Healthy and very delicious, no other way to put it. Unlike most places where the staff pretends to be nice, you could feel the warm vibe of the staff at Hinterlands. They were genuinely there for you, whether serving your fifth refill of the pomegranate juice or helping you move to a different room for better WiFi connectivity. Gokul used to teach us yoga and help with food too, there wasn't an ounce of hesitation or ego. It felt more like staying at a fun uncle's house to learn yoga than holidaying in a resort.…
There is no way to describe the harmony and bliss of this place ! Every little detail is amazing from Unnis vision, to the tree art, massages by Hari, yoga and meditation by Jayesh, and the team. Food is outstanding and fresh, juices and herbal teas to rejuvenate you. And a walk with Unni and Aloki showcasing all the sustainability projects is the icing on the cake :). Hope I will be back every year and more of us from this country can learn to enjoy the extraordinary joys of Hinterland. Seeing all the five stars I almost thought this was fake, but so glad some things in life are so genuine. Wishing everyone much equanimity in 2022 !
I am so glad that I traveled to India (Hinterland in Kerala) from Ireland for xmas and new year. Travel was not an issue, as many told me it would be. Just needed my Covid tests and certs and a few locator forms to complete. Unni and his team in Hinterland made my stay so relaxed, interesting and worthwhile. There was nothing too big or small that they would not do for me. The yoga and mediation instruction is top class. When you combine that with superb service, food and atmosphere it is no surprise that I had a wonderful time. If you thinking of travelling and want an exceptional place to learn or deepen your yoga and mediation practice then go for it! Hinterland village is the place to go. Frank (Ireland)
