Here comes the 2nd part of our journey to Kerala, i.e., stay in Xandari Pearl (1st part is captured under Xandari Riverscapes). Once our day-cruise with a Xandari houseboat was over, we moved to Xandari Pearl at Marari Beach same day evening (a short 45minutes trip; transport arranged by Xandari team). We checked out next day morning (around 11am) for our onward trip towards Thekkady to stay at Cardamom County Resort (another Xandari property). Truth be told, Xandari Pearl is definitely not a place to be in, for less than a day!!! One should come here to be part of a rustic surrounding while having the option to avail and indulge in all man-made luxuries a good hotel could offer and our feel is, one should stay for 2days at minimum to enjoy the property with the adjoining serene beach. The property is having a direct entrance to the beach. The beach water is definitely clean and we saw few people swimming in the water as well (could it be risky, might be). There were few shacks close by but most importantly, we got a serene and clean beach (not many people were there and we could be forgiven if we would have believed that it was a private beach just for us!!!) within 2-3 minutes walking distance from the resort. Enough hotel security is there at the exit of the property and beach entrance but one should be careful to venture to the beach at night as it becomes kinda deserted and beach lights are not there. Asst FO Manager Sanjay with the entire FO, Guest Services and Restaurant team were fabulous. They knew what we would be expecting and accordingly took care of all our requirements with minute details!! We requested some customization in our food menu and those included preparing items with sunflower oil, arranging pork and prawn and make them in a specific way and we loved the food being prepared and not a morsel was left by the time we were through with our dinner! Decent buffet breakfast menu available as well but Dinner was definitely the favorite one. Sanjay was kind enough to accompany us to showcase this huge property consisting of organic vegetable gardens, flower gardens, a well- equipped spa, sheds for cows and goats (one could be there during their feeding time), fish pond and many more. The children would have lots of opportunities to engage with different in-house games and spend time in the farm and/or with fish. There is a small pond immediately next to the Front Office, where once could go for paddle-boating as well (one paddle-boat was there when we visited). Due to scarcity of time and being a family who either prefer to stay indoors or travel outdoors, we did not spend enough time in each one of them. Now, the best part of our journey, i.e., accommodation in Pearl Suite (regarding, best part, it is kinda coin toss between Pearl Suite in Xandari Pearl and Houseboat with Upper Deck in Xandari Riverscapes, though my personal favorite is Pearl Suite whereas my daughters favorite is Upper Deck!!!). space, space and lots of space. Yes, that was the first impression we got the moment we entered Pearl Suite. It is a semi-circled room (almost 270degree) with a long window sill giving lots of space to sit and look at outside portico, open air Jacuzzi and so on. sparse but adequate (neither limited nor less, in anyway) furniture further accentuated the feel of having a huge space to oneself with separate area as dressing room the minimalistic design of the room juxtaposed well with the furniture provided. an intricately decorated open shower (as usual, huge space!) with several plants (some common, some not so common) and lots and lots of colored beach stones and pebbles made us literally feel like having a shower in the beach; for families, who might be concerned about privacy, please note that this area is surrounded by a very high compound wall separate space for changing and toilet with a clean environment (for families who might prefer privacy amongst themselves, one could close the door for open shower & toilet from living room) and now the best out of best, i.e., the open air Jacuzzi and the surrounding. Lying down in the Jacuzzi (size is definitely larger than other Jacuzzis we had used at other resorts) at night time with a thinly lit bulb (option to use higher watt bulbs are also there!), an open moonlit sky directly above us, long bamboo and other trees from boundary walls working as a canopy with leaves from them strewn all over, we literally spend hours looking at lots and lots of sand and the surrounding greeneries (did we mention about the fact that there is a hammock as well!) that was artificially created as outdoor which led us feel , as if we are spending our time open air in the sea beach (or possibly a lagoon) itself at night!!! An unforgettable experience Would we come back to Pearl Suite? Definitely Yes, we would possibly mix it with Xandari Riverscapes, just like this time; so essentially, afternoon in houseboat and evening till next day morning here and unlike 1night, guess, we would be here minimum for 2 or 3 nights!!! The 3 best things that worked for us, are as follows (not necessarily in same order): 1. Pearl Suite and the natural feel associated with it with all modern amenities (msg to management - please continue to use almost nil usage of modern furniture in the Suite!) 2. Guest services (we are immensely happy with the services being provided at all 3 properties that we visited including Pearl) 3. Food (both local as well as customized) Any area for development: 1. Not sure, whether we could call it an area for development, especially because all 3 properties of the Group that we visited show a clear focus towards maintaining a rustic feel while being close to nature and provide all man-made luxuries that a luxury hotel group like this should offer. But, looking at that this newly constructed (~3years old) huge property set-up in the midst of sandy soils and the rustic pathways, gardens etc, we were wondering whether the Group would be interested to make the internal part of the property (leaving the villas) a bit more modern. Too what extent, that needs to be done, should be left to the Mgt to decide so that it juxtaposes well with their ethos. At personal level, I had seen how an extremely popular resort at Mamallapuram (next to Chennai) with similar surrounding as Xandari Pearl, had got transformed over last few decades. Today, the Villas over there look more modern than rustic (even with an unobtrusive sea view) while the entire resort looks more business than leisure.

Quiet Resort with beautiful, new houses close to the beach, Open bath room - fantastic but at night a little frightning..., own little Garden with hammock. Beautiful pool with balls, Frisbee...but too small and warm to swim. Good Restaurant, Yoga and massage.

This was a great discovery and is really hidden away in the back jungles of Kerala. Each room is actually a circular designed self contained villa. Huge room with a stunning outside showroom and toilet area. It also has its own garden with hammock and sunbed/ seating area. The grounds have 27 villas. Some one and two bedrooms. Its a beautiful area with butterfly garden, ponds with fish in and a small lake by the entrance. Theres a spa and an Ayurvedic doctor onsite for advice and guidance (!) The restaurant is designed on a curve overlooking the pool. I would say the pool is a downside. Its only 4 deep so warm water at all times and not very refreshing. Its not large and has been set up for kids to play with nets and balls so youre constantly caught in the cross fire of kids playing which is annoying. You feel like youre intruding in a childs play park. There are also not enough sun beds for residents so unless you get there early they can all be gone because although there is a beach - and its gorgeous - it is a public beach and so there are no sunbeds. Just a few plastic chairs and sand. The sea is lovely and not too rough to swim in but your villas are not ON the beach. They are a short walk through a tiny but pretty pine forest before you get to the beach. The restaurant has a buffet breakfast which was lovely with westerns and Indian dishes on offer. The lunch and evening meals offer a large choice from a mixed menu. Annoyingly this hotel is not licensed and it doesnt say that when you book. I dont live and die for alcohol but think Id be pretty annoyed if I booked a week here and didnt know you couldnt order a beer or wine for the whole stay. A real shame as there is even a bar thats been built and a lounge area you can imagine enjoying but with water and coffee it loses its vibe totally. The mocktails are gorgeous but its not the same! The staff are lovely throughout and it feels very lush and remote. There really is NOT very much to see in the area. It took us 45 mins in a tuktuk to get to Alleppey which was not worth the trip. 90mins gets you in a car to Fort Cochin.

The resort management took good care of us.The beach was sunny, but you cannot control the weather..The restaurant food was delicious and the hospitality was amazing.You can walk around & "get lost in the environment in the resort."There are wonderful smiles greeting you everywhere in the resort.
