Marari Beach Resort


With the aim of offering total relaxation to guests, Marari Beach Resort is designed to mimic the traditional lifestyle of Indian seaside villages. The reception building is large and airy, featuring exquisite local craftsmanship in the thatched roof. The activities on offer are curated especially to encourage cultural education, as well as relaxation and separation from daily life.

Rooms are simply designed and decorated using locally made furnishings and crafts, yet still featuring modern amenities to make your stay comfortable. Harking back to traditional village life, showers are open air allowing you to wash under the sun or stars. The villas either have their own private plunge pool or garden views.

A particular highlight of a stay at Marari Beach is the nightly visit from the ‘Chaiwallah’, a villager who has been serving tea for over 50 years. Guests have the opportunity to observe his special pouring style, and to taste the wonderful Chai tea which he makes.

The cuisine on offer predominantly features traditional Keralan recipes, although international options are also available should they be desired. Its seaside location makes this the ideal place to try beautiful fresh fish, and a local seafood favourite on offer is the Fisherman’s curry – served traditionally in a clay pot with a leaf spoon.


Huge swimming pool, yoga centre and ayurvedic treatments, bicycles, badminton, tennis and beach volleyball facilities and library.

Rooms include dental and shaving kits, tea and coffee maker, hair dryer, bottled drinking water, electric iron and safety deposit box.

Optional Activities

Martial arts, nature walks, organic cookery and traditional dance demonstrations

Naturalist guides were brilliant. We seem to have been given the best one in each place. Had same one for whole of stay in each place. Cultural guides gave just enough information and then left you to ask questions about what interested you which is what we like. They did not seem to have a set patter. Helpful about photographic sites – i.e. good position to take photos.

[OVERALL STANDARD OF SERVICE] Excellent isn’t good enough. In every place we were treated like royalty. Totally relaxed and felt totally safe but not smothered.

[WILDLIFE HIGHLIGHTS] 11 tigers, innumerable rhino, wild elephants, buffalo, otters, hog and swamp deer, and wild boar. Birds at Keoladeo excellent. Watched leopard and three cubs at Siana for 1.5 hrs of exceptional viewing.

An outstanding holiday which far exceeded our expectations. Many people would enjoy it I’m sure.
