We had an excellent mini vacation here. We stayed here for 3 nights and Rahul and his family were amazing and took care of everything. The authentic Kerala food that Rahul's mother cooks is the highlight of the trip. Definitely try the fish-fry, puttu and channa curry.

Although the property is not beach facing, it is just 100 metres from the beach and have designated beach beds. So it is like a private beach! Rahul arranged refreshments for us in the beach which was very sweet of him.

Rahul lent his bike to us so that we could ride to our friend's wedding which is again - hospitality at best!
Ah! and if you love cricket, these brothers and friends have a game every evening. Join them for a game or two ! Its absolutely fun!

If you are looking for a relaxing few days with amazing Kerala cuisine and wonderful hospitality go for this place.

I don’t often give 5* to anyone and it’s never because it’s luxurious but because it’s excellent value and a really relaxing place to be. Marari Blue Waves is all that. The family are lovely and Rahoul is very helpful going out of his way to make sure yikes stay is as comfortable as is possible. The breakfasts are good but the dinners are first class - stayed in for dinner on the first night and, because that was so good just had dinner every night on the table outside our room. Moved from Tuna Curry to various Grilled Fresh Fish and Crab Masala ..... all were exceptional.

There are restaurants if you turn right along the beach and walk for 20 minutes - we didn’t eat in any of them but they looked ok. There is a small beach-bar next door if you want a change of scenery.

The room is large and clean with coffee making facilities and a small fridge and is cleaned daily if you want it cleaned. There are just 3 rooms and we had the upstairs room which is more private with a balcony and little table to eat at.

The family have beach beds and umbrellas that can be set up and will carry them down to the beach for you. They are also very happy to organise a massage in town of for a trip out into the Backwaters - the massage was good and we didn’t do the Backwater trip.

This is a really nice place to chill by the sea - the sea is ok for swimming in but the breakers can be quite large: but a lovely place. Worth making it to the beach for 08:00 to see the fishermen coming back in and cleaning out their news - dozens of Sea Eagles descend looking for a free fish or two!

One piece of advice to Rahoul would be to clean up the rubbish on the beach in front of your home stay - next door do this and it makes it all look and feel much better.

We stayed at Marari Blue Waves for 16 nights in January. The location was perfect in full view of the beach less than 5 minutes walk from our room.
The Solomom family were very welcoming and obliging. Father Emmanuel is a fisherman and provided some of the fish for our meals. Mother, Letitia, cooked our meals and they were all delicious. Eldest son Rahul runs the business, arranged trips for us and helped choose and serve our meals. Middle son, Sharon, helped with serving our meals too and is a taxi driver and collected and returned us to and from the airport and took us out when we needed to go to Alleppi. Youngest son, Saveo, is still at school, but helped serve meals when he was able.
It was a really lovely relaxing place to stay and we will return for more soon.

We arrived tired and thirsty at Marari Bluewaves to be warmly greeted by Rahoul who spoke excellent English. He and his brother showed us to the cleanest room we have had in our 2 week stay in Kerala. Coffee making facilities were available in our room and a large case of bottled water was purchased at our request (12L for 180r)
Our bed was very comfortable and air- con & fan made the first siesta welcome and effective.
Home cooked food is tasty, vegetarian ( as requested) plentiful and various.
Beach very close, sun beds and parasols provided free by Rahoul and Sharon. Nearby fishing boats are interesting, beach bars, a restaurant and other facilities just 10 minutes walk.
Marari Ayurveda Panchakarma Centre gave restorative foot massage... 20 minutes walk or 5 minutes tuk-tuk ride (arranged by Rahoul).
Our host family are friendly and incredibly hardworking. I intend recommending this homestay to friends visiting Marari Beach later this year.
