As repeat visitors to Kerala, we were looking for somewhere we could relax completely and experience the local life and culture. We spent 6 nights in Orchid villa walking the beach every morning to watch the village fishermen come in with their catch, then take it to beachside auction. Visited the local markets with Rajesh our chef who was very... More

We stayed 6 nights in the Bourgainvillae Villa and it was like a dream. The villa is spacious and tastefully decorated and the surrounding beach amazing. As a former guest wrote, a storm had removed some of the sand in front of the villa, but it wasn't really a problem. You could still go swimming right in front of the... More

We stayed at Bougainvillia Villa for 10 days in early February. For most of our stay we had this lovely 2 bedroom villa to ourselves, apart from our final day. Because of the layout of the villa this was not a problem All the staff were extremely welcoming and we felt we were very well looked after. Olga and Rupert... More

My family and I stayed in Bougainvilia Villa, one of the Marari Villas for two weeks. We were immediately met with a warm welcome by Olga and Rupert, and our host Sanu who could not do enough for us. The villa is stunning, spacious and comfortable, and we felt thoroughly spoilt. The food was so amazing that we had almost... More

We chose Marari Villas as a final stop on our tour of Kerala and it proved to be a great place to relax at the end of our two weeks. We stayed for five nights and felt very wound down by the end, helped by an ayurverdic massage at a nearby spa (an experience not to be missed). Our particular... More

We stayed here between 15th - 17th Feb. 2015. There had been a big storm which had removed some sand from the beach and it also made access more difficult by foot. Olga and Rupert made us feel very welcome and took time to give us much information about the place. It is run in a sustainable eco friendly way.... More

Dear Jane and Stuart, Thank you for your very extensive review. It is a shame you only stayed 1 ½ days as it did not give much time to settle in and appreciate the full experience – we are certain some of your concerns would have been addressed with a longer stay. Our Villa Host was on leave when you... More

Stayed in Palm Villa for a week. Firstly, George and his staff are excellent and you will have no complaints there. The villa was beautiful, the food was beautiful - fell in love with Kerla pancakes - and the beach is beautiful, you can walk for miles and only meet a handful of people, however there is one problem which...
