This was our second stay in Orchid. For us this meets all our needs. The villa is for comfortable but not ostentatious, the garden shaded and peaceful, and the pool deliciously refreshing. The beach is 250m away and you can hear the waves breaking as you dine at night Quite simply the service and the food are superb. We have... More

We stayed 5 nights in the Palm Suite towards the end of our holidays in Kerala. Every day we saw Rupert and Olga so that we could ask questions or organise outings and the villa team of George, Roy, Sajeevan, Latha and Beena were always on hand- a bell ring away for anything we might need. Sajeevan our chef was... More

We stayed for three nights and two days at Marari Villas (New Lotus Villa) as it was recommended by family who were having a longer holiday there at the same time as us and had been previously. We really liked the views and the location of the villas; beachfront on a quiet tranquil stretch but still a working beach with... More

Only 300m away from a mostly deserted sandy beach (other than the sand crabs ). Your own paradise villa with friendly attentive staff catering for your every need. Personal chef with a large repertoire of tasty local and international cuisine. If you are looking for a relaxing retreat this definitely fits the bill, complete seclusion if required.

The four of us stayed in Bougainvillea for 6 nights at the end of November after our safari trip to Tadoba, Pench and Kanha. Everything was just perfect, the perfect place to relax. The villa is beautiful and idyllically situated on the beach with uninterrupted views of the sea and the staff were just fantastic, absolutely nothing was too much... More

Three of us stayed here 5th to 12th December, in Bougainvillea for a week. Just wanted to echo other reviews about the beautiful location, the amazingly well planned layout of the accommodation, and the fantastic chefs whose standards were of Michelin star excellence. Olga and Rupert were both friendly, hard working, well informed. From the airport pick up to our... More

Marari villa was without doubt the most beautiful place I have ever had the privilege to stay. Olga and Rubert were perfect hosts and the staff attended to our every need.

My Wife and I spent 2 nights in Orchid which was a great wind-down from the flight from London. We then moved to Palm Villa where we were joined by our eldest son. Palm Villa had the benefit of a sea view and was also a great location to take yoga lessons with Dr Krishna who is a yoga master.... More

Tucked away well off the beaten track, Marari Villas is a very special destination. We stayed in Hibiscus Villa, it was a short walk to a completely deserted beach so we spent our time between the private pool and our own private beach. Benjamin our beach attendant was at our beck and call to bring us cold beers, chapatti rolls... More

Everything in the Excellent reviews of this property is true. The owners are responsive, accomodating and kind. To run a place like this in such a rural setting and keep up their standards is remarkable. They hosted us at the beach villa while ours was being prepared, provided lunch while we waited and were exceptional in making comfort items available... More

Dear marmaduketravel, We were delighted to have your family staying with us and thank you for your wonderful comments about our staff, food and family-friendly amenities. Unfortunately we have had unusually bad weather over the past couple of months due to the cyclones in the Bay of Bengal (you may have seen the Chennai flooding in the news). The abnormal... More
