Village style resort of thatched cottages
Easy access to both Cochin and the backwaters
Marari Beach Resort is located only 60km from Cochin, offering an ideal alternative to Kovalam if you are visiting the backwaters around Alleppey. Its eco-friendly outlook and beautiful thatched cottage villas blend subtly into the natural palm-lined surroundings.
Marari Beach Resort offers guests 62 villas set in lush gardens some with private pools which offer a suitable deluxe stay. In-room amenities include air conditioning, minibar, tea/coffee facilities and a wide range of natural bath products.
You can enjoy simple local dishes with fruits and vegetables from their own organic garden and fresh seafood caught by local fisherman. The hotel has a delightful swimming pool, tennis courts, Ayurvedic spa and yoga. Located only about an hour's drive from Cochin, the hotel is a great place to end your holiday relaxing by the coast.
Do nothing on the beach, take long walks or bicycle rides. Marari wasn't designed for doing but just the opposite. But you should definitely take time out to stroll down to the village and explore. There are regular cookery classes most evenings, so you can master the delights of Keralan cuisine in your kitchen at home.
