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!

Relaxing fun!

Review by travelbugsy7 Aluva, India

We had a nice time. We were a family of 8 with 6 adults and 2 kids - aged 6 months to 80 years- and we all enjoyed it. The best part of the resort is probably the beach access...

Private beach, shower and towels kept at the beach make it a wonderful time. The pool was large ans nice too though it could remain open longer. People are there to relax but we felt the time was very constrained. Food was good. Not excellent though. There were quiet a few misses. Breakfast spread was good. Lots of health drinks! Rooms were well maintained. The grounds are large and I can’t fault that they weren’t as well maintained as we would expect. Service was overall excellent! Will definitely return.

Beautiful Spacious property this semi private beach

We selected this CGH Hotel, as we were really amazed by their partner hotel in Kumily (spice Village). What we really liked about the place was that they follow ecological standards. The property itself is huge and spacious, so that you don’t bump into other people every second, that’s really an advantage of bigger resorts...

The pool is fantastic about 25 m long so that you can really have a good swim in there. Moreover, if you’re interested in Yoga, they have a brilliant yoga teacher ( Akichan) and an expert naturalist ( Shibu) with huge knowledge in birds and wildlife. Nothing to complain about the food and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Only aspect to mention: in terms of transfer in the property (luggage) we had to wait quite a long time, this could be arranged in a better way in a five-star hotel. And taxis cost more for tourist in the hotel, so if you’re not in a hurry, just go out on the street and walk a bit and ask a local taxi driver to collect you.

Beautiful Property with Terrible Service Standards.

Review by utkarshadios Kanpur, India

Let's give a few positives for the property cause rest there is a long list of negatives. Beautiful property with a semi-private kind of beach and one of the best pools in Kerela. The room size is really amazing.

Now let's come to the negatives

  • We checked in to the property and the team was making us aware of the property when the restaurant informed us that we have our lunch as the kitchen was about to shut down. -We ordered fish staying at the Beach property but was smelling and tasted stale and it was been replaced by the Restaurant team. -They didn't have a proper bartender and the one behind the counter had no knowledge of mixology which is not expected at a 5* property like CGH Group. -The rooms are so wide apart that it takes forever to cover from one end to another. -Now at Dinner the food was way beyond average, the soup was also a disappointment. The snacks were also way below average...
  • Upon the server's recommendation we ordered Butter Chicken which was so terrible that even after returning it the replaced order was also not palatable. The chicken was so rubbery and terrible to eat. -So now in the morning it was raining and in order to go up to the restaurant we requested umbrellas which never came across to our rooms and we had to go to the restaurants being lightly drenched.
  • Even the breakfast was such a disappointment with raw omelets and even the south Indian dosa and vada not up to the standards. -Now upon check-out we requested for luggage to be collected for us and it took them almost 30-45 min to get the luggage even the billing took so much time which seemed very vague. -Now upon complaining either the Hotel Manager/ Guest Relation Manager usually come up to the guest to sort out the issues, here it seemed like the hotel was not at all bothered to even address the issues.

LUXURY PROPERTY BEEN RUN LIKE SARKARI SETUP !!!

Awesome!

Review by Pahari Mumbai

Just the place for a relaxing break. The property sits amidst a large expanse of green...and the beach is just there too. There are hammocks, benches and the lawn to loll around in...

There is a large swimming pool too. The individual cottages come with a spacious room, a small verandah and an interesting semi-open washroom. They are neat, clean and well kept. There is a club house and reading area and a couple of food shacks besides the main dining room. Dining here is a delight with a good array of food that is tasty and wholesome. The kitchen garden is another interesting aspect of this resort. Those interested in nature will be delighted with the flora and fauna. Do go for a nature walk with Mr. Shibu Basu. The staff are excellent and very helpful at all times. Kudos for their hospitality.
