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

The staff were lovely, the food delicious and the whole area so peaceful and relaxing. We took some lovely long walks, chilled by... More

I booked the Orchid Cottage at Marari Villas months in advance as we wanted to stay over New Year and I knew it would get booked up quickly seeing as the property is only small. We booked our stay via email as well as arranging a couple of tours and an airport drop off. If you plan to arrive on... More

There are hardly words to express the wonder of this place. It is an oasis of beauty and peace, especially after the hubbub of the towns. Rupert and Olja could not be more considerate and nothing is too much trouble. The staff are wonderful and food absolutely delicious, and presented beautifully. As an elderly woman travelling alone, I felt completely... More

My wife joined me after I had visited Kerala on business. I stayed in 3 other hotels and locations and this was leagues ahead of everywhere else I stayed. We had 5 days in one of the most stunning locations in the very beautiful state of Kerala. The owners and the staff are very professional, courteous and friendly. The beach... More
