Our stay at Bougainvillea, one of four wonderful Marari villas, counts as one of our best vacations ever!! This is truly a beach house, meters from the water on a beautiful beach. It is large, spacious and tastefully appointed. We were a family of 7 people, 3 adults and 4 kids and we had plenty of space for all. It... More

Just a great place with great people. Olga and Rupert have really concentrated on getting the details right and Sanu and his team at Bougainvillea made sure that everything ran smoothly. 3 days of pure paradise!

After a hectic trip in India, this place was the perfect place to relax and do nothing! The accommodations were without fault. Beautiful rooms, thoughtful basket of sun cream and insect repellent etc... Towels for the beach, drinking water refills. The bathroom was nice and modern, however the shower pressure was really really low. A little tough to get all... More

we were a group of eight friends who rented this out for two days. and trust me when i tell it, we felt like the owners of a heritage beachside home without the slightest worry of any intrusion into our privacy. the food is good but expensive. the central lounge area has a bar table with plush bean bags and...

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
