Where the Indian Ocean blends into the Arabian Sea, the ocean seems more blue and the white caps more frothy. This is the inviting boundary of Marari Beach resort. Within the protective line of coconut palms are arranged 52 fishermen-style cottages, truly authentic on the outside, with their white washed adobe walls and palm thatched roofs. A step inside reveals not rustic but fully modern, elegant and efficient amenities. All are air conditioned.

Choose a Garden Villa for short and easy access to the beach -ideal for families, or for extra luxury enjoy a Pool Villa with its own private pool and deck. Larger villas feature a separate sitting area which can accommodate two beds.

This is not a resort for the night owl who wishes to party till dawn. Activities range from a slothful day by the pool with a good book, punctuated by a delicious lunch-time snack, to a semi-energetic cycle tour of nearby villages, tennis, badminton and volleyball.

If ‘cabin fever’ takes over, you are only a rickshaw ride away from Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary where many migrants seek their winter warmth, or a taxi ride from Cochin with its fascinating colonial heritage and almost cosy, laid back atmosphere.

 Ecology is uppermost here; rainwater harvesting and solar heating are practised. With the nearby waste recycling plant and policy of no waste released into the sea, you can be sure of really safe playing and paddling for children. The neighbouring farmland receives the benefit of this, and Chef Navrayan Kutty is fanatical about his freshly gathered produce. Bread is baked daily on the premises and I defy you to resist that extra roll at breakfast.

Highs Lows

• Almost private golden beach with few hawkers and no noisy water sports.
• Relaxing “away from it all” atmosphere - as private or sociable as you choose.
• Attentive service and tasty local Keralan food.
• Wide choice of accommodation to suit different sized groups and budgets.

• A prime destination for the well-heeled westerner, so likely to be busy in high season. But you may snatch a week or two in August between monsoons, avoiding the crowds.
• Fairly restricted activity wise – perhaps have a week to unwind before venturing further into India, or make it your finale before returning to the ‘hurly-burly’.
