The Canaan Marari is an old building dating back to the 1800's. The current structure is an addition to the old wooden one storey hut. Ask Paulson about the backstory of this place. The Canaan Marari has been an integral part of the local history. The historic owners of the property were wealthy farmers. There is an underground room which was used in the old times to store grains. There are 5 rooms on the ground floor and 2 rooms on the first floor. The central living room is where we host our meals. The central living area consists of a 'Naalkettu' which encloses a small indoor pool. The outdoor space is lush green and sandy. We have had guests who have spent an entire night digging their feet into the cold sand and relaxing on the backyard under a canopy of trees and stars. Chethy beach is a hop away. You can enjoy a quiet evening on the beach watching the sun set.

We were a group of 20 reached Canaan after attending a marriage function. It was midnight when we reached. The night seen was awesome. The house is an old ancestral home with nalukettu style with a mini pool inside. Something unique in look. 7 bed rooms with a hall on top floor, an open terrace, a beautiful green garden with hammock and swing. Indoor games and outdoor games. Overall a serene and calm look. Home made delicious food, fish, karimean fry really enjoyed. Chethy white sand beach is awesome anybody would love to be there again. We would definitely recommend this place anyone visiting Marari or Alleppey for the great hospitality rendered by Mr. Paulson.

We hail from Mumbai, a place of concrete Jungles. Coming to Kerala, especially Alleppey is refreshing. The Marari beach(Chethy beach)which we visited is one of the finest sandy beach in Kerala. And this place, "The Canaan" is very rejuvenating. The aura, the garden, the calmness, the natural ambience, the airy rooms and the homely food is all that one requires for a quick break from our busy schedules. The owner is also friendly and caters to our needs showing excellent hospitality.
