55 Acres Of Mindspace

Far from the madding crowd, and distant from the world of trendy hotspots and beach raves, Marari’s lietmotifs are space and silence. And little else. (Though you can be assured of endless amounts of both).

A sprawl of  lawns, far-flung lotus ponds and whispering coconut groves, all threaded through with stone- flagged pathways. A wind-break of palms runs the length of the property, and beyond, is only the sand, the sea and the sky all whispering their special language.

Panaroma: The Beach
A warm, breezy evening on the strand

Chaaya, chaaya, chaaya

Meet our "chaiwallah". He's been serving tea in the nearby village for 50 years now, like his father before him. You could say the stuff runs in his blood. For an hour every evening, he serves his special ‘meter chayya’ at Marari, with this special pouring style that adds the tang of fresh sea air to an already heady mix of coarse tea leaves, ginger, milk and spices.

 

 

Marari Beach won the prestigious and highly-competitive Skal International Eco-tourism award in 2007. The award was a reflection of Marari Beach innovations in conserving nature and the local environment, and working with the community.
