MARARI VILLAS - ORCHID COTTAGE

Boutique private villas

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

Olga and Rupert also do all they can to negate or reduce any negative impact on the local community. They purchase food from local fishermen and farmers wherever possible, and provide guidance to guests to help them understand and respect local cultural issues.

BOUTIQUE PRIVATE VILLAS - ENVIRONMENTAL & SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Marari Villas considers Responsible Tourism seriously and endeavors to reduce its environmental and any negative social impact as much as possible.

Rupert’s focus as an architect was on eco design, and he has put this into practice during the planning and construction of the villas, using traditional and modern practices to reduce environmental impact through a policy of ‘Reduce, Re-use and Recycle’ including solar-heated water, 5* low-energy air conditioning, low energy LEDlights and a bio-gas tank fed by food waste. Complimentary drinking water bottles are refilled from large re-usable containers to support a ‘no plastic bottle’ policy. Shampoo, conditioner and shower cream dispensers are refilled to reduce packaging waste.

Olga and Rupert also do all they can to negate or reduce any negative impact on the local community. They have deliberately purchased individual properties instead of developing a large resort compound, so as to reduce the impact of tourism on the local fishing community. They purchase food from local fishermen and farmers wherever possible, and provide guidance to guests to help them understand and respect local cultural issues. Olga and Rupert have supported the local children’s tuition centre for the past few years and have just invested in a new roof for the classrooms, with additional donations from guests.
