Xandari Pearl was our final stop on a busy 3 week trip to India and what a perfect end to the trip ! We were able to check in early, upgraded to a pool villa, which left us speechless. Everything is carefully thought about from delicious snacks and juices to the spotless pool. The restaurant staff are well informed and helpful with both food and wine. Nothing is too much trouble, all the staff from the gardeners, housekeeping to reception staff are warm and friendly. A perfect destination to kick back, park your busy life and enjoy a truly magical stay.

Everything about our stay here celebrating our Silver wedding anniversary was wonderful! We were warmly welcomed by Manusha and team with garlands and refreshments. We were taken to our villa and had the fabulous surprise that we had been upgraded to a pool villa as we are here for a special occasion. The bed was also beautifully decorated. The resort is very peaceful and relaxing. The staff work hard to keep the gardens looking green and tidy. As well as our own pool we have also enjoyed relaxing and sunbathing by the communal pool. The beach is very unspoilt with just a few deckchairs and umbrellas which are complimentary for guests. The sea is very warm and although a little bit rough it was fine for swimming. One afternoon while sitting on the deckchairs we were lucky enough to see a pod of dolphins swimming past. I had a very relaxing head and shoulder massage with Shisheda at the Spa, my best massage in Kerala. We enjoyed the delicious Kerala food in the restaurant. Great variety and different buffet options each day. The service from manager Shimlaj and his team, especially Mabel and Vishnu, was superb. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Our highlight was a special seafood dinner prepared for us to celebrate our anniversary, including a delicious cake. We have been so well looked after and it’s been a perfect way to end our tour of Kerala. We would definitely love to come again. Thank you everyone at Xandari for a wonderful time!

It was our third trip to Xandari Pearl. The moment you enter the gate, you are in a different world. So calm and serene. You can see only smiling faces every where, be it the Reception, Restaurant, Pool, Spa, everywhere. They go out of their way to make you feel at home. Mouth watering dishes served at the Restsurant. The ambience at the bar is mesmerising. They have a private beach which is very neay and calm. Only regret is we could stay just for one night. Will definitely come back again. 5 out of 5.

Most beautiful wonderful place we’ve ever stayed - we finished our travels round Kerala with 4 days here and they were magical. Beautiful properties with gorgeous outside bathrooms, brilliant amenities (lovely complimentary snacks and drinks, wonderful private pool!) - the team at Xandari pearl had thought of everything from cold water to mosquito repellent. The complimentary activities are amazing, we enjoyed cycling round the village and down the coast, swimming in the sea, morning yoga and afternoon tea time with snacks. The staff could not do enough for us. Thank you!

Relaxing stay in a quiet characterful resort. The rooms are designer individual buildings with their own garden or pool. The staff were all exceptionally helpful making us feel very welcome. Manju on reception and Mabel in the restaurant were particularly good. There is a good range of food for breakfast and dinner with free afternoon tea. We did yoga on the beach in the morning and Unusually there was kite flying every evening which was surprisingly fun. Highly recommended. We would definitely come again

A lovely tropical garden and beach hotel. 27 single round ,widely spaced thatched villas, some with private pools , all enclosed by privacy walls. Lovely tropical gardens , the main pool is tropical and surrounded by grass and shade trees. About a two hundred meter walk through the gardens to a huge beach, warm ,calm ocean. A few sunbeds and umbrellas courtesy of the hotel, more on request if needed. Thatched Restaurant open sided offering very good food ala carte and buffet if a large group is staying. Wine and beers only. Staff were all very friendly and helpful especially Manjusha on reception and Mabel in the restaurant. Easy to walk or bike ride on a fairly quiet road. Easy to loop walk along the road and then back on the beach. A hammock ( which I don't particularly like) and one sun bed are in the villas, a second sun bed can be requested and better I think . A very peaceful, quiet friendly hotel to end a wonderful stay in Kerrala.
