Marari Villas is the first company to offer boutique serviced villas, beach houses and cottages on beautiful Marari Beach in central Kerala. The growing collection of villas includes traditional Keralan heritage houses and contemporary villas with luxury facilities such as swimming pools, private gardens and beaches, a personal chef, a villa host, and housekeeping and taxi services.
Marari Villas is currently offering two neighbouring cottages (Orchid Pool Cottage and Hibiscus Cottage) within 3 minutes walk of the most beautiful part of Marari, where the backwaters meet the sea. Both cottages are adjacent to each other and can be booked together for a group of up to 4 adults and 3 children, each with a private pool, garden, BBQ and outdoor dining area. They also have the benefit of private beach facilities within 3 minutes walk.
Marari Villas located in a quiet village just a few minutes from the beautiful Marari beach. Marari lies on an almost undiscovered shore between the renowned backwaters of Alleppey and the cultural hub of Cochin and is one of Keralas best kept secrets. The tranquil fishing villages dotted along the coast retain a unique spirit at Marari that has been lost elsewhere. Only the local fishermen, their traditional colorful wooden boats and the abundant wildlife share the beach, so you are virtually alone to enjoy the endless crisp white sand beneath your feet, the cool shade from vibrant green coconut palms, and the gentle sea breeze blowing in across the azure ocean. We can arrange Ayurvedic massage with a local doctor, private cooking class in the garden, elephant ride on the beach, yoga lessons be the pool, restaurant bookings at the neighboring resorts and other activities.
Marari Villas are perfectly located as a holiday base in Kerala. It is only 1 ½ hours drive from Cochin International Airport and within a few hours drive of all major tourist destinations in central Kerala: 20 minutes to the renowned Alleppey backwaters, picturesque Vembanad Lake and the houseboats 1 hour to the heritage and cultural centre of Fort Cochin 3 ½ hours to the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary and the spice plantations of Thekkady

The two one-bedroom cottages are adjacent to each other and can be booked separately or together. Orchid Pool Cottage (which sleeps 2/3) and Hibiscus Cottage (which sleeps 2/4) are fully serviced properties with an experienced team consisting of a chef, villa host, housekeeper and beach attendant to care for your every need. Orchid Pool Cottage is built in a contemporary style with white walls and a thatched roof made of coconut leaves. The bedroom has full height glass doors that open onto an exclusive, quiet tropical garden. Hibiscus Cottage is a 100 year old traditional Keralan wooden house that has been restored to provide a real sense of Keralan life, with a few added luxuries! The cottage has one master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, and a second room that can be used as a kitchen or additional twin bedroom. Facilities include A/C, a flat screen TV with cable channels, a DVD/CD player, surround sound and free WiFi, luxurious sky-view bathrooms with modern amenities.
Each cottage has its own private swimming pool with 2 sunbeds and an umbrella, a tropical garden, a BBQ and a dining area. All meals and candlelit dinners are served in the garden or on your private veranda by your villa host, whenever it suits you. Your personal chef will serve traditional Keralan or Continental breakfasts daily and will cook lunch and dinner on request (vegetarian, meat or seafood, as required). There is also a kitchenette with full self-catering facilities and a carefully written guide about the local markets, shops and amenities, so you can be totally independent if you prefer. There is an outdoor kitchen in the Orchid Cottage for private cooking classes and a larger private garden with a hammock in the Hibiscus Cottage.
Marari Villas is located on the most pristine beach in Kerala and our aim is to provide a comfortable beach environment so you can enjoy it fully. All our properties have private beach facilities where you can spend hours relaxing on a sunbed or swinging in a hammock. The beach attendant is always near at hand if you want someone to move your umbrella or your butler is on call to bring you cool drinks and snacks. At some of our properties, the beach attendant will also act as a lifeguard if necessary. We provide mineral water and fresh milk in your fridge as well as leaf tea, ground coffee and sugar. We purchase the finest quality local Keralan products and there is a cafetière and a teapot in your kitchen, so you can enjoy refreshments at any time of the day or night.
