Accommodation


During this retreat, you will stay at Hinterland Village. It is a home stay type of accommodation where you can get all the warmth and care that remind you of home with the added benefits and luxuries of a resort. Each of the available rooms are different and offer a unique blend of antique charm and modern comfort. There are a number of options of shared, double, or single rooms. All rooms are air-conditioned and offer stunning views of the surrounding greenery.

Massages and other therapies take place in two individual rooms each featuring a treatment table as well as a bath steamer. Furthermore, there is a beautiful and inviting yoga space designed to maximize contact with nature. Surrounded by coconut trees, lush vegetation, and a paddy field, the yoga shala is the perfect setting for unforgettable yoga sessions.

Hinterland Village knows pet-friendly vacation destinations are the need of the day, as pet owners are often reluctant to go on a holiday which would entail leaving their pets behind. It is heartrending to leave your furry companions behind as this incidentally takes all the joy out of the vacation. Also, with the concrete jungles that cities have become, it is invaluable to give your pet an opportunity to explore nature freely, under your watchful eye of course.

Be it a pooch or a pussy, a birdie or a bunny, you can bring along with you pets of all kinds, sizes and shapes. There are no pet weight limits at Hinterland Village Resort. We do not require pets to be crated or leashed at any time except for one hour before 7:00 a.m. and from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. every day when Hinterland Village’s three dogs, Lucky, Veeru and Bambi, are all over the grounds.

All of the public facilities are open to pets with the exception of the swimming pool and the games room. There is a natural watering place, which is well maintained specifically for dogs. Standard pet amenities include pet bowls, beds, toys and food, which need to be ordered in advance. Pet sitting can also be arranged with advance notice.

The guests are expected to keep their pets clean and dry before entering the room. While booking your stay at Hinterland Village Resort, please do mention the details of your pet including the type of pet, the breed and the specific requirements of the pet, if there are any, so that we can make the stay comfortable for your pet too. You will be charged 3000 INR per night for a pet-friendly accommodation.

Bodhi Ayurveda and Yoga Retreat India Program


The retreat program is a specialized procedure of Ayurvedic treatment necessary for releasing unwanted toxins from the physical and astral bodies by giving a healthy status to the bodies. It not only cleanses your body, but also lays the ground work to re-energize and strengthen your bodily systems. With the modern lifestyles and food habits, unfortunately, more toxins into the bodies are taken than ever before. Over time these toxins build up, creating lethargic digestion, metabolism, and un-energetic bodily systems which in turn create a disturbed mind, restlessness, and inadequate health.

Detoxification program can also act as a natural preventative for future ill health and much needed rejuvenation of your bodily systems. At Bodhi Center, the doctors are specialized in detox programs and include natural techniques such as fasting, colon cleansing, and holistic weight loss programs through balanced diet and practice of yoga asana therapy. At the retreat, you will take a yogic pause to reflect and feel admiration towards the physical sheath that contains and hold you throughout the lives.

The ancient science is of the thought that any kind of resistance met at the emotional body sooner or later results in an imbalance, which further manifests as disease. Overweight could often be the need to feel protected and underweight is a failure to assimilate emotions. Sometimes, an imbalance is a result of a simple but constant negative thought about the self.

However, a poor body image has nothing to do with how you look on the outside. The techniques of yoga along with work with self and others through a series of activities, opens the flow of energy by extending and expanding the space element in you, hence giving you room for a few good thoughts.

Yoga will help you in identifying a deeper connect to the body and attitude of your mind through a series of asanas and other yogic techniques. The workshop also incorporates surya namaskar, prananyam, yoga Nidra, shuddhi kriyas, sooksham kriyas or also known as pawan mukta asana series in order to evoke a healthy body image and harmonize emotions, helping to identify the origin of toxin collection and elimination.

Included excursions


Kerala backwater cruise is included in price.

Location


Hinterland Village lies on seven acres of lush greenery, a haven of rich native biodiversity, and an oasis of peace on the outskirts of the city of Kochi, Kerala, India. Hinterland Village boasts more than 180 native species of flora that grow abundantly and naturally throughout the year. The Bodhi center at Hinterland Village was an initiative undertaken by its founder, Unni, to promote yoga and Ayurveda.

Unni’s desire was to create a space where guests and visitors could immerse themselves in spiritual practices in a peaceful and natural environment. The Bodhi Ayurveda and Yoga Center at Hinterland Village is a spiritual paradise set amidst jungle giants overlooking a paddy field. The space around the Bodhi Ayurveda and Yoga Center is a paradise for bird watching and nature walks. The resort also has a swimming pool set among the greens so guests can cool off from the South Indian heat.

Located conveniently close to Kochi city but refreshingly away from it too, Hinterland Village offers you a quick get-away-from-it-all option like no other in the city. Over little more than a few years, the homestay has become a hot favorite among the cool resorts of Kerala, not to mention the flow of visitors from abroad with some of them returning back as regulars. Hinterland Village is a homestay where you can get all the warmth and care of a home along with the luxury of a resort.

This is an ideal place to relax with your family, kids, friends or partners. On the lap of nature, amidst ravishing greenery, you will have a cocoon of luxury all to yourselves. Put your feet up. Let your hair down. Feel the breeze in your hair. Know what fresh air smells like. And if you are game, kick those shoes off your feet and feel the cool, wet earth. Let the freshness of it all seep into your being.
