Xanadu Marari Villas
Reviewed 2 July 2017

The family were extremely friendly, generous and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. If we needed transport then they arranged it inc. an elephant ride!
The food was excellent. It was very tasty, plentiful and varied.
The modernised but traditionally set out house is a 5 minute walk to a gorgeous beach.
Overall, a wonderful and unforgettable experience.

Room was basic but clean. The family were kind. The food was exceptional, tasty, traditional and beautifully presented. Literally ten minutes walk to a beautiful and unspoilt beach.

Our hosts arranged a trip to the backwaters for us.

Staying with Jipsa and her lovely family was an incredible experience. The are extremely hospitable, helpful and generous. The organic home made food from their own garden was the best Kerala food I've ever had. When I got sick, they took care of me. Highly recommendable!

We have been 3 nights in Xanadu. The homestay almost new with good rooms and exellent family staff. George and Gipsa her daughter did the best on our stay. That means beer welcome, good breakfast and tasty dinner. Litlle gestures like giving us water to go and juice in the noon also did us happy. Gipsa helped us getting tickets online to Munnar in incredible low price. We planned to stay 2 nights but expanded to 3 nights. Marari is an almost virgin beach with fisherman on sups.

The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable. The host was very helpful and helped us book taxis etc around the area and to the airport. We had breakfast as well which was massive and included all sorts. The real selling point of this homestay is its proximity to the beach which is a few minutes walk. All round a great stay with a good host.
