WARNING! On the 2nd January, I booked a stay at the Seclude Kerala Marari Sands and cancelled WELL WITHIN the free cancellation period because my friends had just returned and warned me not to go, saying the staff were unhelpful, the accommodation was tired and not very clean, and the food was terrible and that they had both been ill after eating in the hotel. Unbeknown to me, the hotel had already taken full payment of £872 for the whole week from my card which I gave in good faith to hold my reservation on the 2nd of January, and despite so many messages, emails and calls, I am STILL waiting for my money to be returned almost 2 months on. They told me a month ago that they had refunded me, but still nothing.

We spent three nights at this lovely property on the beach at Mararikulum. Everything is very clean and well kept in beautiful gardens. The staff are a huge asset. Without exception they are friendly and helpful and make you feel very welcome. The Royal Villa room was very spacious and well appointed with excellent AC. The only downside for me was quite a hard bed but that is obviously a matter of personal taste. We ate at the restaurant each day and the food was always good. Again the staff were brilliant. I really recommend this hotel.

Our stay at Marari Sands was very pleasant! Loved the beach, pool was also very nice and the whole place is keept very well. We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed the service of full board. Food was delicious and the meny has many options for good food. Loved the outdoor bathroom!! It´s amazing to take your shower under open skies, in sunlight or at night in moonlight! We also had Ayurvedic massage with a very good therapist. We really want to visit again in the future. It's a lovely and quiet place on the beach. Thanks again Nadeem, Praveen, Sibin, Justin, Aloshi & Jon for good service and great food!

Great location, right on the beach, but this place is poorly managed, the restaurant is poor and comparatively expensive. Much better taking a 70p tuktuk & eat at the Flamingo Resort round the corner. The staff really are lethargic and do the bare minimum. Shame as this could be an absolute gem of a resort.

Seclude Marari Sands is a lovely property located on an secluded patch of beach near alleppey. Firstly, I would like to mention the seclude booking team who were very prompt and easy to coordinate with and suggested options based on dates and requirement. The location of the property is stunning. The beach itself is very quiet and serene, so if you're looking for some quiet reading time or time with family/ spouse it's wonderful. They have a nice pool that's kept clean. And they always play nice music in the restaurant. The rooms are as per expectation, some maintenance can help upgrade it to 5 star. The staff here is very helpful, they try and cater to all the needs. Areas of improvement: the beach beds are always dirty because the crows are in abundance which can become a menace. Also, their menu suggests that you can pick from a bunch of dishes, but 4/5 meals for us were in buffet setting with very limited options especially for vegetarians. I think they can setup better expectations of guests in terms of food. Overall a very good relaxing vacation. Would love to try more seclude properties :)

I had a fantastic stay at Seclude Marari Sands Beach Resort in January. The resort boasts one of the best beach views in Marari, with stunning sunsets. The staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming, making my experience even more enjoyable. Nadeem and crew went out of their way to ensure that I had everything I needed and were always available to answer any questions I had. From the moment I arrived until the moment I left, I felt like I was part of the Seclude Marari family. Their warm hospitality made my stay unforgettable.

The most awesome four days spent by the sea. The resorts is picturesque, staff is very courteous and polite. Special mention about Depu and Nadeem. The food was excellent. They took care about food allergy of my wife, to an extent that she could eat freely. Highly recommended. If I am forced to think about anything negative, well it's 2-2 and half hour drive from the airport, but then, it's worth the trouble. This is the fourth property of Seclude that we have visy, others being at Kasauli, Ramgarh and Pangot. Each one has its own aura. I am a fan of Seclude.

A truely relaxing location amongst the sounds of nature and the waves, accompanied by great staff and excellent food. The beach and the sea were our highlight, which is pretty secluded apart from some fishermen and the local dogs. You can also walk up the beach to some lovely shack restaurants, and to Marari beach. We would definitely go back. A yoga teacher came to the location each morning and we did our class by the pool.

We spent 3 nights at Seclude beach and we really enjoyed the stay. Staff was really helpful although I recommend to improve the communication with central office. Cleanliness was ok in the room, I would have seen the same on the beach after the new year eve party. The facility is quiet, perharps a bit too isolated (uber or tuc-tuc can’t reach the facility). If I would be back in Kerale I would consider to stay again in this place.
