The Marari was an excellent choice. Our room was spacious, with a superb bed and wonderful indoor and outdoor seating. The dining room was lovely and provided an abundant selection of (mostly) Indian foods. The grounds were beautifully maintained and gave access to a lovely, sandy and almost deserted beach. For those preferring fresh water, the pool is clean and... More

When I read some of the reports here I really do wonder which resort they refer to. This place opened in 1998 and we were so impressed that we have returned and returned and this year was no exception. The rooms we occupied were impeccably cleaned albeit on some busy days it might have been a tad later than we... More

We found the Marari Beach Resort an excellent place to end a thoroughly exciting and incredibly busy sightseeing trip through South India. The grounds and pool are lovely, the plantings exotic, and the staff cheerful and accommodating. The dining area is very attractive, and the food was excellent. They arranged a lovely overnight on a houseboat traveling through the backwaters.

Much as I would like to give this resort a high rating if only because of the charming staff, I think in all honesty it could do with improvement. Other guests have mentioned the 'hit and miss' room cleaning. This was also our experience, drinking glasses were not changed but merely rinsed under the tap, ( was this the cause... More

Having stayed at the Spice Village in Thekkady prior to coming to this hotel (it's owned by the same group) we were really looking forward to staying here for the last few days of our holiday but, unfortunately, it all turned into a bit of a let down. The grounds are lovely, apart, maybe, from the green murky pond behind... More
