Stayed at the Marari villas. The room was built using authentic Kerala wood that had been relocated near the beach but the real luxury was the private backyard with a private pool. The open air shower was bliss. However, the service levels were out of this world. We were treated like royalty and every meal was a treat. Every query...

Following a 6 week trip in India, it was perfect to end our stay with a break away from the chaos in the beautiful Lotus Villa. Everything, from the room, the pool, the beachfront location, the fantastic team of staff and delicious food was perfect.

Travelling in India is always a bit of a risk... Your taxi might break down or there might be a impromptu Hindu parade blocking traffic but, having a great time at Marari villas is always a sure thing. Once you arrive, you will be greeted by either the owners Olga and Rupert or by George the concierge. We stayed in...
