Thoroughly recommend this wonderful resort as the perfect way to end a Keralan adventure such as ours. We had explored the bustling sights and sounds of Kochi, marvelled at the fascinating tea plantations clinging to the mountain passes and then drifted along the beautiful backwaters in Aleppey before arriving at the Marari for some rest and relaxation We were immediately...

This may have once been a lovely eco hotel, but right now it's a building site, banging drilling and workmen working round. There isn't anything that they could have said to make me want to stay here at all. Over half the hotels room are being renovated. It's a mess. They claim the hotel is about relaxing, there is nothing... More

Staff is amazing so is the hotel, ideal place for people who are looking to relax and unwind in the perfect setting of nature. One must try the ayurveda massage available at the hotel, not to forget the amazing see food which you can get to eat

Just returned from our 4th visit to The Marari and had a great time as ever. It recently got knocked down to 3* and lost it's licence to sell spirits (beer and wine still available) and is now renovating all the chalets to get back up to 4 or 5*. The work is supposed to be finished by October 2015... More

This is a stunning resort, large and very comfortable rooms, beautiful surroundings and top class staff who couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. We had really good meals here. We walked down to the beach at sunset which was exquisite but no swimming in monsoon. I was a tiny bit disappointed with the pool which was difficult to swim... More

This location was the perfect end to a hectic trip around Kerala. Our villa was simply styled but spacious and very comfortable. The private pool was a well-used luxury but we just had to swim in the warm ocean fringed by white sand and swaying palms. Sunset was a treat . The spa was very well appointed, all staff were...

Was surprised and too late to realise a well nature preserved property is here near to my hometown. Stayed in private pool villa. So well preserved and maintained, with good facilities. Few steps from beach side, had a good time after dinner there. Dining was authentic and organic recipes were good. Will comeback for sure.

we stayed in March 2015 as an extension after a hectic tour. Amenities at hotel very good. Beach very safe with lifeguards. Spa and pool excellent. Rooms delightful. But there were cockroaches in my outside bathroom (big ones!) and the problem was not solved by spraying with only lemongrass. Food if you didn't want the buffet was overpriced and consisted...
