On the Kerala coast, an hour south of Cochin, Marari Beach Resort is set in 36 acres of lawns, lotus ponds and coconut groves, threaded through with stone-flagged pathways. A windbreak of palms runs the length of the property, reducing the sometimes gusty sea winds to a cooling breeze.

The accommodation is modelled on the fishermen's dwellings of Mararikulam, a fine balance between traditional form and modern function. The roofs are palm thatch and the concrete base keeps the air conditioning in and inquisitive insects out. Bathrooms too combine modern fixtures with the traditional Kerala open-roofed style. The little taps outside each cottage are another local touch. The fishermen use them to wash the sand off their feet and guests can do likewise.

The resort has three restaurants - a veranda style restaurant by the pool, the evening Seafood Grill and the Organic Farm Restaurant where guests can select their own vegetables, cook and partake of the meal with the chef. The bar at Marari is in a beautiful 200-year old building, deep in a thicket of trees and lotus ponds. There is also a Beach Shack serving refreshing drinks

Do nothing on the beach, take long walks or bicycle rides and definitely take time to stroll down to the village and explore.

There are regular cookery classes most evenings, so guests can learn and enjoy Kerala cuisine. There's also the organic farm experience to enjoy. Marari Beach Resort has a full size swimming pool, beach volleyball and tennis for the more active. Ayurvedic massages and yoga classes enhance relaxation.

Client Rating for India 5/5 from 130 reviews

Large spread-out complex on a beautiful beach (although it should be noted there are no facilities on the beach itself). The sea food restaurant, Beach Grill only serves fresh fish and is outstanding.
