Marari Beach

TripAdvisor Review
India, Indian Subcontinent
Mararikulam

The Marari Beach is an eco-friendly hotel that occupies an enviable location near the local fishing village of Mararikulam. The lush garden setting, adjacent beach and traditional thatched roof buildings all combine to create the perfect backdrop for a truly relaxing holiday. Imagine lazing in a hammock under the palm trees and listening to the waves lapping the sand… This is the holiday you've been dreaming of.

Transport yourself into a paradise of blue seas, palm trees and four star luxury:

As soon as you arrive at the Marari Beach, you feel welcomed, relaxed and right at home. This is a holiday that is just perfect as a 'get away' where you can forget, even for a couple of weeks, the stresses and demands of daily life back home.

The location is ideal if you want everything on hand, but still want a sense of privacy and some choices on surroundings. The site is lush and green, with lots of cute little thatched cottages dotted about. On one day you might want to enjoy the gardens and maybe find a shady spot to enjoy a book. On another, you could choose to spend your time poolside – either taking in a few lengths or simply interspersing a refreshing dip with a chapter or two of a good book. And as another option, how about a few hours enjoying the clean white sandy beach, lined with swaying palm trees, with white crested waves coming in from the distance?

The elegant simplicity of the accommodation at the Marari Beach is well worth a mention. All of the prettily named Garden Villas have their own private terrace and wonderfully unique bathrooms which are partly open to the sky, so you can really be at one with nature. An outdoor shower is a holiday experience that's hard to beat!

The villas are simply furnished and enhanced with fresh local hibiscus flowers picked from the gardens and arranged for your pleasure. In line with their eco-friendly policy the rooms do not have a TV however one can be found in the recreational room if you need it. Garden Pool Villas and Deluxe Pool Villas are also available at a supplement.

As well as an excellent activities programme, the Marari Beach also offers an Ayurveda Treatment Centre plus yoga and meditation to keep you occupied and relaxed. The village walk and butterfly and bird watching activities are also worth doing. And if you're feeling energetic, bikes are available (at a fee) for you to go out exploring.

Why not treat yourself to a holiday to remember at the four star Marari Beach? You'll be pleased you did!

Just woww!

Review by ReshmaSivasagarKochi (Cochin), India

We visited this amazing resort with 2 small kids and the hospitality, care and attention we received from the staff was just overwhelming. We had a hassle free check in with the help of Selma, staff at the resort. We were made completely comfortable during the covid situation ...

We had enough privacy and space. The food at the chakara resort was so sooo good! Mr Dhanish who arranged the food was so caring and welcoming. We had a great night in the resort, beach was cozy, just 5 min walk from the room, food and room ambience were mind blowing. We are soo honored by the welcoming staff. We would definitely visit this amazing place again..

Another great experience in difficult times !

Review by Ravi JKochi (Cochin), India

After having been stuck at home for over 2 months due to the pandemic we were desperate to have a break. But in these uncertain times, choosing a destination is not the only challenge, being certain that the place is safe and sanitised is. So, when we heard that the Marari Beach Resort was open for business once again we were in two minds...

But having experienced CGH properties multiple times in the past we were quite sure that they would never compromise on guest safety. And we were proven right.

From the time we walked into the reception it was evident that the management had put strict protocols in place. Our baggage was sanitised at the entrance and then our temperature was taken too. The housekeeping staff carried our bags only to the entrance of the villa and then we took them inside ourselves. The rooms were freshly sanitised when we walked in. So, we felt at ease right from the start. At the restaurants too they had strict protocols and also ensured physical distancing between the guests.

The service and food were top class as always. Overall, we were very happy that we decided to take a chance. We will certainly be visiting more CGH properties in the coming months.

Solitude and then a Dream Wedding in a Dream location

Review by jacobisacKochi, Kerala, India

Stayed from 02 to 05 July 20. Aim - get away and attend my Nephew's wedding. We went a day early...

As we approached porch, I saw fire fighters and smoke. Did we choose the wrong time ?

Just COVID protocol. We were fogged, namastayed, shot with a UV gun and given sanitiser as Prasad. Then Selma smiled and the fogging cleared.

Day 1 . We felt as if we owned MBR. The staff - Right from the smiling Selma Mgr. front desk, to serious Dhanesh managing the dining facilities. The cuisine and the dishes were for us to choose. Despite my Doctor's advise to the contrary I slurped on - hogged on the sea food platter, a non veg Thali, a fusion breakfast, et al.

The next day more wedding guests came in and we saw Shenoy the GM come alive. He was all over, strutting around like a masked Super Hero. Whether it was keeping the guests happy or creating a heavenly atmosphere and settings for a destination wedding, Shenoy had it all under control and truly sold the cghEarth experience. What a wedding? Choreographed and orchestrated to perfection. The food was delicious and we could see guests raving and Chef Saiju beaming. The bar was closed, but the spirits were high.

We enjoyed so much that we decided to stay on for another night. They fogged us out on the last day.

But this trip was special. I never thought of MBR as a marriage destination. But with all the magic conjured up by Shenoy and team, I know why the phrase "Marriages are made in Heaven" was coined.
