Homes have been set back from the beach in Marari for many generations. It was never crowded. Following the historic use of Xandari Pearl’s 18 acres, we built 20 villas. The privacy that this layout affords is the luxury that we offer.


You are never too far from the sea in any of our 20 villas, five of which have plunge pools. Designed to accommodate two guests, all villas are crafted with the concept of laid back elegance in a natural, green setting. All villas include a large private garden with sandy sit-out, private dining area, hammock and chaise lounge. Showers opening up to the sky add the ultimate luxury.


Blue and green are the colour accents that represent sea and land, embracing the "pearl feeling" that white represents. Designed with relaxation in mind, all villas are television-free zones.

  • The Pearl Suite includes a spacious lounge area, lush private garden and a plunge pool with Jacuzzi.
  • Blue Pearl Villas have a private garden with plunge pool
  • Green Pearl Villas feature private gardens and pond facing sit-outs


Xandari Pearl's all-day dining restaurant overlooks one of Kerala's most beautiful swimming pools set naturally within stands of coconut, mango and cashew trees. There is a demonstration kitchen if you are inclined to learn from our chefs how to prepare your favourite dishes from our menu.

Our relationships within our neighbours run deep. Mararikulam, the beach where Xandari Pearl is located, has been home to fishermen forever. Their encampments are dotted throughout the trees that hug the coast, with only their colorful boats and nets visible on the beach. They are our neighbors. We depend on them for the daily supply of fresh seafood. Members of their extended families have trained with us, and now offer world-class hospitality. 

On any given day, some of those boats will be hauled from the sand into the sea and groups of men will head out, usually at dawn, for the catch. Seasonal variations bring different fish close to shore, and these boats tend to stay within sight of the beach and return before noon. Fish sorting, net repair, and chai time fills the afternoon.



From elephant paddy paper products, to notebooks, toys and hand-crocheted jewelry, there’s something for everyone at our signature shop. The products are sustainably sourced, keeping in mind the women’s self-help groups and welfare centres they benfit. Design aesthetics are also thoughtfully addressed in Viakerala’s quirky line, which reflects the spirit of the land.
