We stayed at Cottage room 104 overlooking coconut trees and sea. The cottage was quite spacious with beautiful washroom which had open air shower. Beach seems completely private as there is no disturbance of locals or other tourists.
Food was really tasty and staff for extremely polite.

Thank you team for making our stay memorable.

A wonderful green and quiet resort at the beach with friendly staff. The bungalows are cosy, comfortable and clean! The staff is very helpful. We came early and got towels for the beach and pool. Also after the check out we were allowed to use one of our two rooms for another four hours.

Horrible stay at Tree of Life Sands Beach Resort, Marari.

My name is Mr. Gaurav Sharma and we have booked our stay at Tree of Life Marari from 01-02 Mar’2020 for 01 Night under confirmation number 0065394113 (Palm Cottage Room). On arrival we were awestruck by the beauty of location and thought this would a perfect location and hotel for our honeymoon however everything vanished once we were allotted a room. The AC was not working properly and they took almost 90 minutes for the repair and to our surprise AC stopped cooling again within next 30 min. You can imagine the amount of time we have wasted (2 hours plus) with no solution. Being on honeymoon this would be a worst decision to stay here.

Finally Hotel Manager who was so busy in his work spoke to us and allotted us another room but again there is a problem. Washroom roof was open (see pics attached), I have asked them to give us proper room and not like this but hey kept insisting that there won’t be any issues due to it. It is totally different from what they show on their website. We were forced to sleep in same room without any refund inspite of having their mistake. They have assured us thet nothing will happened due to open roof but unfortunately we couldn’t slept whole night. Chirping sounds of insects was easily audible whole night from open roof and to surprise while taking a shower we have encountered with a frogs inside washroom. What worst they expect from it, still they rudely showing their attitude and have done nothing to make us happy. If your full hotel was sold out it doesn’t means that we have not paid to you and you should have not given us or anybody else that faulty room.

Worst service from a hotel of per night price of 7000+.

I have taken this issue very seriously and will be complaining against you in FHRAI and Kerala Tourism dev corp. The time you have wasted would not come again. You spoiled our whole trip.

We had a wonderful week at Marari Sands - the staff were very friendly, welcoming and helfpul. The resort is wonderfully quiet, with beautifully kept grounds and a pristine beach within a few minutes of your room. The pool was right outside my room so easy to have a quick dip at any time of day. The room was spacious and clean and the bed very comfortable. We ate every night at the resort and the food was excellent. I'd highly recommend staying here.
