This beachside escape in Mararikulam near Alleppey is a peaceful sanctuary where guests can switch off and tune into the sounds of nature, like the symphony of waves lapping the nearby shoreline of the Arabian Sea and the melodies of bird song.
With only four roomy cottages set in a large lush garden full of palm trees and tropical plants, this is not a resort but more like an exclusive hideaway that ensures ample space and privacy for every guest.
The cottages are designed for outdoor living with indoor and outdoor spaces merging seamlessly. The airy guest rooms open onto spacious verandas with comfortable sitting areas and an open-air private dining area. Most bathrooms are also open to the outdoors and are another way to commune with nature. Though the cottages are traditional in style and tastefully decorated with a simple uncluttered aesthetic, they do not lack the usual modern comforts you'd expect, like air-conditioning and free Wi-Fi.
