Marari Beach Resort, Alleppey

There are a multitude of things to do, sights to see, horizons to explore in Kerala. There’s also an oasis of relaxation. It’s called Marari Beach Resort.

Is a beach simply for lazing on? At Marari you can lounge on fine sand to your heart’s content. Or embark on a programme called Wellness Amidst the Sands that includes ayurvedic treatments in an al fresco setting, advice from doctors on natural medicines with no side effects, yoga sessions with a master and the most relaxing Kerala massages.

And those are not the only ways Marari will help you unwind. How does stretching out in a hammock, in the midst of a butterfly garden sound? Or cycling over to a sleepy village for a couple of coconut toddies? Or bathing in an Olympic-size swimming pool. Or experiencing a colourful local festival? It’s your choice - come to Marari on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to India, and relax.
