INDIA - Kerala, Marari
Marari Villas was developed by Rupert and Olga, a British-Russian couple who have been living at Marari Beach for the last 6 years. Before falling in love with this beautiful corner of Kerala, Rupert and Olga searched the whole of southwest India’s golden coast from Mumbai down to Trivandrum. They were looking for their dream beach: miles of pristine white sands, fringed with cool shady coconut groves and more or less empty, other than a few local fishermen and abundant wildlife. And Marari, they discovered, had it all.
MARARI VILLAS offers 3 villas situated directly on the beach BOUGAINVILLEA • PALM VILLA • LOTUS VILLA and 2 cottages situated 300 m from the beach, but with private pools: HIBISCUS COTTAGE • ORCHID COTTAGE
