Xandari Pearl occupies a peaceful stretch of coast where you can get away from every day life and escape to enjoy peace, tranquility and simplicity without compromising on comfort.
Whichever villa you have at Xandari Pearl, you will never be far from the sea, each unit is set amongst palm trees that sway in the breeze. Five of the villas have their own plunge pools, and there is a main pool which is open to everyone. The villas are spacious and uncluttered with a modern feel and elegant soft furnishings. Blues and greens are the accent colours together with crisp clean whites, in keeping with the colours of the ocean and beach. Each has a private garden with a cleared sandy area with seating, there is also a private dining area and your own relaxing hammock and chaise longue. Bathrooms are en-suite with hot running water, and a shower that is open to the sky, adding a nice touch. There are no televisions here, this is deliberate, allowing you to relax and connect with your surroundings with no distractions.
Surrounding the pool are coconut palms, mango and cashew trees along with scattered shaded sun loungers for your relaxation. Located beside this area, the restaurant is open throughout the day serving delicious food with a farm-to-table philosophy, including fish purchased from the local fisherman each day: you can watch as they return in their boats each morning. There is a demonstration kitchen if you would like to learn how to prepare your favourite dishes from the menu.
The ethos is that you relax and recharge at Xandari Pearl. If you wish to discover the local area, bicycles are available for you to use, and you may also wish to visit the Mararikulam Shiva Temple and Velorvattam Mahadeva Temple or venture to Allepey on a sightseeing trip.
