Kaivalyam Retreat at Munnar


“Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit. When one is free from physical disabilities and mental distractions, the gates of the soul open. When ‘I’ is replaced by ‘We’ even illness becomes wellness.”

At Sitaram’s Kaivalyam Retreat we hold your hand through your journey of healing, rejuvenation, self-exploration and a healthier joyous way of living.

Kaivalyam Retreat welcomes you to enjoy being in nature’s lap and witnessing the rejuvenating and refreshing sojourn amidst spice plantations adorning the hills. It is set in the beautiful town of Munnar, which in Malayalam and Tamil means “Three rivers”. Munnar is named after the Periavaru, Madupetti and Nallathanni rivers which flow across its land. It is a prime tourist destination in Kerala which is well known for its breathtaking natural abundance. Located on the mountain range of the Western Ghats, Munnar is the ideal hill station for a memorable staycation.

Kaivalyam Retreat offers you an opportunity to experience wellness tourism in its true essence. ‘Kaivalyam’ in Sanskrit implies separateness, solitude or detachment. It is a state of liberation that the consciousness of a person attains by realizing that it is separate from matter.

It aids you in the journey of outer as well as inner transformation towards a better quality of life and well-being.
