    "The location was incredible and the people who worked there were lovely and very friendly. The food also was amazing I got a few recipes from them. However the one thing that let me down was the fact that I paid and booked for 3 days of yoga for the full itinerary and only received 1 full day, which I felt was a little frustrating as I had looked forward to this and wanted to practice and build my knowledge with the philosophy. Though they did provide me with a massage a day then 2 hours of yoga (very slow) in the evening, I would have liked to have been able to have done more and the fact this wasn't acknowleged did upset me. However i utilized my time exploring the beautiful local area and practicing my own yoga I would advise and check that when you book you ask if you will receive the full days."

    "I was at Hinterland Village for two nights and three days, which wasn't enough and I would love to return. It is an incredible place with a tranquil atmosphere, places to walk, sit and read, or chat to others. As soon as I arrived Unni spent time talking to me about what I would like to achieve from the retreat and then took me on a walk around the grounds. All the staff were extremely kind and friendly, helping out with booking taxis and any extra requirements ,including laundry. Each day we had a herbal water left outside our rooms to sip throughout the day and the program was fantastic , keeping you busy but allowing you time to relax in between classes too. For me, the 45 minutes yoga theory session with Swami was the highlight . I had not realized the teachings, philosophy and lifestyle attached to yoga as an exercise and since leaving have begun reading more on this, which I find really helpful. The yoga itself is challenging but mixed in with relaxation (I still have not mastered the headstand) but it is also a lot of fun. The Ayurvedic massages are great, each day I had a different type, and the masseuse was very friendly, chatty and always concerned how I was. Meditation in the evening was the perfect way to end the day and all the food was exceptional. The only suggestion I would have would be to make sure someone is always able to fill in if a teacher is away, so that those on shorter breaks get the full experience."

    "Hinterland Village was the perfect place for me to rewind, take time in nature and brush up on my yoga skills. The entire staff was so caring and attentive - I didn't want to leave! The food is so beautifully made and the atmosphere is just perfect...peaceful, green, and well-maintained. The Ayurvedic massages were a bonus and it was cool to receive this treatment in Kerala, where it was invented. While I was there, I got to participate in different things such as milk a cow, go on a tour and learn about all the plants and participate in daily yoga theory classes. Unni has a brilliant vision for his Eco-village and is excited to incorporate his guests into that vision. It's an amazing place and great value for the money. Would stay again. "

    "Hinterland Village is one of the most hospitable places I have stayed at anywhere in the world. Unni is a generous and welcoming host, as were his son AJ and the entire staff when we arrived. The food was exquisite, and over the several days of our stay we were introduced to everything we needed to know about South Indian cuisine. Seriously exceptional food! The property is quirky and charming and there are beautiful gardens to roam in, bees producing fresh honey, many medicinal and culinary plants, flowers, a lovely paddy view from the yoga deck, wonderful on site ayurveda/massage, and even an Emu... feels like home. Wi-fi was great, pool was always clean, rooms were spotless, spacious and cool. Unni helped us arrange everything from adventures into Fort Kochi to onward train and bus rides and was more than happy to sit and chat with us, despite managing several other businesses. He somehow always found the time. Having moved on to other places across south India, I'm realizing just how special Hinterland Village was as a fist stop in this gorgeous country. Thank you, Unni!!"

    "Don't hesitate or look elsewhere, just take the plunge and book. You are in safe hands. After the first four days, all my stress had disappeared. I was calm and happy, thanks to the restorative powers of Unni and his team at Hinterland. A beautiful setting, a wonderful soundtrack of jungle noises to exercise to, I can't recommend this place highly enough. Very comfortable and relaxed and so professionally run, that you don't notice it at all, it's like staying with friends, but where everything is done for you as of by magic."

    "My stay at Hinterland Village has been one of the best experiences I have done ever. Unni has created a peaceful and wonderful retreat with hundreds of plants that makes you want to stay there forever. The guestrooms are big and the bathrooms are very new and nicely redone. It kind of felt luxurious with toilet paper and nice soaps and shampoos. The food is outstanding and not spicy (I would have liked a little spicier even). But very diverse with loads of healthy vegetables and fruits (some even from the property) and very typical (south) Indian dishes that I am missing already deeply. The Ayurveda treatments in the morning and afternoon are decided upon one´s health condition and preference, I very much enjoyed the daily oil massages with special herbs, the herbal teas and eye /nasal drops. The yoga practice took place 3 times a day (morning and afternoon with Asanas, noon was more breathing, meditation and discussing methods we had learned). The Yoga teacher Marco is amazing and we all learned a lot (also to take back home which was very helpful). He was always open for questions and suggestions and constantly showed us different options according to the individual level of yoga experience. Everybody was able to improve quite a lot I believe. As it is always hot there, the swimming pool (which is covered) was super refreshing and clean, the whole property is kept very well and very clean. You have loads of animals like Emus, Rabbits, birds, geese, cows etc. The only thing I did not like 100% was that the doctor did give more spiritual advice rather than medical advise, but this might also have been due to the fact that I did not have so many health complaints. All employees are super nice as well and helpful taking us to excursions and showing us interesting things. They were also very helpful with explaining ceremonies, rituals or Indian culture in general. Genuinely nice people from the cleaning lady to the cook and all the rest of the staff who have tried to make our stay as great as possible. I am definitely planning to come back – hopefully we will reunite again with the great group of people I met there. ☺ Very happy with my stay, has been an amazing experience."

    "The Hinterland Village getaway Resort in a sweet beautiful home away home in the lap of nature. There in greenery all around, a neat and clean swimming pool, badminton court, table tennis court, Bodhi (Ayurveda and Yoga Studio), a pond for Aquarium fishes ,different type of birds, cats, ducks etc.. It is an awesome place for live. Very tasty, nutritious food is served with love under hygienic conditions. It is an education centre for kids, place to enjoy for young couples and good place to live in elderly people for health point of view. Our younger son arranged Ayurvedic treatment at Kochi under the guidance of Dr. Sita and Dr. Rajeeve.Staffs are very co-operative, gentle in nature. I would like to mention Mr. Nobin and Mr. Gokul, Angel (Bodhi) are pearls who under the supervision of Mr. Unni (Owner) look after the maintenance of this place and also help the guests in all friends. Mr. Unni is very energetic, co-operative soft heartier person. He keeps watch on all activities and establishes cordial homely relation on the guests. We prepared Rangoli with flowers with the help of Mr. Unni, his wife and daughter and then enjoyed traditional food with Hinterland Family on the specious occasion of ONAM. Hinterland Village is awesome place to relaxed and enjoying Life. To stay here is an amazing experience which will be recommended forever. We stayed here nearly for a month like a family member. My family members, some relatives and friends are anxious to visit this place. WE PLAN TO VISIT THIS PLACE ATLEAST ONCE A YEAR AND WISH ALL SUCCESS!"

    "We had the most relaxing and comfortable time at Hinterland, the chef served up a fantastic array of Keralan and continental cuisine, whilst the staff made us feel most welcomed and looked after. The resort was a perfect place for bird watching and whilst we luckily were resident at a time for butterfly season, we also were assisted in our search for palm civets, turtles, toads and awoke each morning to a tropical oasis of palm trees and lush greenery everywhere. The vast 7 acre grounds lent itself to a rubber plantation, (where we learned to tap rubber) nutmeg, pepper farming, homes to fancy poultry and various aviaries. The bamboo area was my favorite place to read, write, relax and find some shade from the sweltering southern India heat. Would recommend to anyone wanting an escape from city living and the tourist traps. I would hope to visit again one day."

    "A really lovely resort. After the madness of Delhi we were looking for somewhere to relax and this was perfect. Rooms were clean and with air-con, and it was really nice to have 3 proper beds, not a camp bed like we are used to! Food was fantastic. They cooked 3 lovely meals a day, for whatever time we wanted them, for a very cheap price. They were also brilliant in organizing stuff for us to do in the day. Beautiful grounds and lovely swimming pool. We even extended our stay by a day. Couldn't recommend more!"
