If you're after a spot of rest & relaxation, then Marari Dreamz is the place to stay. Stunning accommodation, and the warmest of welcomes awaits you from Allwyn & Jency (and the dogs). The villa's are beautiful and well maintained, one with a private pool and the other with a shared pool. If you are after privacy, and a quiet break from it all - this is guaranteed. We enjoyed breakfast and dinner while staying. Jency's traditional home-made dishes are exceptional, and I'm still craving her tomato chutney a few months later. Accommodation is within easy walking distance to the beach, although I would recommend taking a tuk tuk or cycle to the beach to see the fish being brought in first thing in the morning - amazing! Nothing was too much hassle, and our two-night stay was

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay. The private pool area and gardens are stunning with great attention to detail. The breakfasts and dinners were all delicious. We couldn’t have asked for more. All staff were extremely friendly and helped create a welcoming environment. The morning yoga session was a fun addition!

This is one of those place where you feel immediately at home. Allwyn and Jency are just perfect hosts and lovely people. Warm and caring with an open mind and genuinely interested. Jency home-made diners are full of love and delicious. The staff is also very welcoming and respectful. Their 5 sweet dogs are calm and gentile. I was staying in the room with the private pool, the pool is great, everything is decorated with a big eye for details, the garden is lovely and the room is just perfect with a great open air bathroom. The surroundings are lovely, located in a quiet street just a few meters away from the beach. A big plus are the bicycles, which are available for all guests. Marari is a great place to discover by bike. I booked three nights here but I decided to come back

Stunning spot near Marari beach. The room is superb - stylish, clean and cool. I love the private open air shower under a mango tree. The pool area is gorgeous with several shady loungers and beautiful plants. We had breakfast and dinner, both fantastic. This place has the quality of an upmarket resort, but the warmth of a family home, due to the friendliness of the hosts, Allen and Jency. We did yoga in the mornings with Alwen, and we had a brilliant Ayurvedic massage with a local practitioner in the village. I highly recommend this place for a restful, rejuvenating break.

We have just returned from a 2 week stay with Allwyn, Jensy and their team of excellent staff . This is a home stay but with the feel of five star service. Marari Dreamz is in a good location, situated on a quiet lane and just a short walk to the beach. There are also bicycles you can use if you want to explore the local area whilst you are here. Allwyn was a star ,able to organise day trips out and about to various places of interest, we didn't have to lift a finger during the whole holiday he was there for us . As first timers to India this was much appreciated.! Thank you Alwyn for allowing me to join the morning yoga session .....I will work on the head stand!! The main attraction for Maria Dreamz is Jency cooking , I don't have words to describe , but to repeat what

Best place ever, location is stunning, rooms adorable, with open air bathroom. Our villa was equipped with private pool, it was amazing. Privacy is guaranteed at all times, breakfast and dinner are served personally in the patio of the room, and food was the best ever had in the entire country. Owners are incredible, Allwyn, Jansi and the entire staff are so welcoming that everyone feels like home. An heavenly place in the beautiful garden of India:Kerala!! Thank you for everything, we will definitely see u again

We had an absolutely perfect stay here. It was a great place to relax and refuel. Allwyn and Jency are great hosts and they’ve worked hard to create a little oasis here. Special mention goes to Jency’s delicious, authentic cooking which was seriously among the best we tasted in Kerala. There’s not a lot of other eating options around so we were only too happy to have dinner there each night. You won’t go hungry. They have a bunch of very friendly dogs whose company we enjoyed, and the staff were all very nice. There’s bikes to use to explore the village roads around, there’s a local bus into Alleppey, Marari Beach is a few minutes walk away and we cycled to the jetty (about 40 mins) to get the ferry over to Kumakarum. We stayed five nights in Cashew Villa which - if it’s

I stayed here with my wife for just a couple of nights although we had already visited prior to this as we had stayed at Allwyn and Jency’s other property, Mandaram Villas. Marari Dreamz consists of 3 villas, an apartment and 3 pools. We stayed in the rear villa which had its own private pool. Our room was simply but pleasantly furnished, with air conditioning, and had its own bathroom complete with open air shower. Meals were dished up outside our room and everything we were served was wonderful. If you want your evening meal here too Jency will cook you the most delicious local cuisine. The staff work hard keeping the place tidy, the grounds neat and the pools clean. Marari Dreamz is in a good location, situated on a quiet lane and just a short walk to the beach. There

The hidden star of Marari Beach I was tempted to not review this hotel because then it will be harder to book in future. Set in a tropical style green garden, with private rooms and a great pool, yet only minutes from a super beach, this is our second visit. Extremely efficiently managed by Alwyn, who is ably supported by Jency, who is an excellent chef, look no further if you want 5 star service, good food and comfort at a price well below that of the 5 Star hotels in the area. Very highly recommended
