Stayed here for 6 nights at the end of our trip around Kerala in April. Perfect ending - the villa and pool were great, and the service attentive but unobtrusive. Drinks on the beach with the sunset on the last night were amazing. If you go on the market tour make sure the chef takes you. Would highly recommend if... More

We are in Hibiscus villa, enjoying sounds of the rain on the roof. Wonderfully relaxing spot, this walled cottage with swimming pool, veranda for dining and hammock under the trees. Dinner last night was excellent, with Kerala specialty fish dishes and interesting sauces prepared by own chef and brought to our veranda table. We've arranged for a yoga class this... More

We stayed at The Marari Villas in the Orchid Cottage in March for 6 nights … what a perfect way to end a 3 week trip to India. The villa is set in an unspoilt, residential, non-commercial part of Kerala with both backwaters and beach. From the start Olga made the booking part of the trip so easy and faultless... More

We stayed at the Hibiscus villa mid-April, when it was already very hot, but our stay was just perfect. The hosts, Olga and Rupert, are there to welcome you and provide help and advice with no hesitation. They arranged for a pick up from the airport, which saved us a lot of time and hassle. The villa itself is just... More

We loved our stay at Marari Villas. The villa was beautiful and the children loved the garden and pool. The staff were very helpful and attentive, even providing Easter Egg painting, badminton, pool toys and fresh fruit ice lollies for the children. We enjoyed the unspoilt beach and the trips organised and recommended by the team. The food was amazing... More

We had 2 nights at Palm Villa with friends and absolutely loved our stay. Wish we could have stayed longer! The welcome by Olga and Rupert was really friendly and personal and from then on the service was great. The villa is beautiful - set right on the beach so you can wake up to the sound of the waves.... More

We were at the end of a tour which was exciting but tiring and we were glad to unpack for five days. We stayed in Hibiscus Villa and found it to be one of the best and most relaxing places we had visited. The garden and the pool which are your own are very private. The food was excellent and...

We had 3 nights in Hibiscus Villa followed by 4 nights in Orchid Villa. Hard to choose as both great but we liked Orchid because of the large window overlooking the pool and the front garden with chairs and a fan. Both have outside toilets and showers with lovely plants growing in them. There was nobody else there so we... More
