A splendid Retreat located on the Marari beach in Alappuzha, India, A Beach Symphony is idyllic for a vacation in the Kerala region. The boutique Retreat, with typical Kerala cottages, was opened in 2007 and it is the result of an Indian & Belgian partnership. It is a very charming place with a mix of European elements, Indian furniture and colours, all while respecting the traditional Kerala style.
The 4 cottages (Khombu, Nagaswaram, Violin and Sitar) each in a different style, have large verandas and private gardens to relax next to the beach. The Violin has also a private pool. 3 km south of Beach Symphony, the owners have Veena Beach Villa, a wooden villa for maximum 6 people with private chef, housekeeper and gardener.
The swimming pool of Beach Symphony is a private oasis surrounded by a tropical garden, where guests can have a tranquil time. In Ayur Kutiram, massages, body treatments and Ayurveda programs are on offer. Meals are prepared by the chef, in consultation with guests and are served on the veranda of their cottage or on the beach.
Beach Symphony invests in the education of the local community, by supporting and donating a percentage of its net profit to the St-Augustin High School.
