Xandari Resorts

Community Collaboration Conservation

Xandari destinations are renowned for space and privacy - the experiences are meticulously designed to frame their natural settings. Each welcomes guests as if to the home of a close friend, instilling a sense of peace and belonging amid some of the most diverse natural and heritage landscapes.


At the core of Xandari, there are three fundamental principles that are imperceptibly woven into every action. Community. Collaboration. Conservation.

Life is simply beautiful at the beach. And that is our orienting theme at Xandari Pearl on Mararikulam Beach, rated one of the top five "Hammock Beaches" in the world by National Geographic. Here at this ‘secret’ locale, in the company of those you most want to be with, simplicity is the perfect setting. The white sands, the truant sea breeze ruffling your hair, and the skies showing off their colours as you sit down to a plate of the day’s catch cooked your way - the seaside story is yours to share. A Pearl beyond price: a simple, organic, comforting, private hideaway.


A short drive from Xandari Riverscapes - our houseboat operation on Lake Vembanad - Xandari Pearl comprises 27 villas spread across 18 acres of the quaint fishing village of Mararikulam. You are never too far from the sea in any of our 27 villas, twelve of which have private plunge pools. Nestled in large gardens, the villas are a statement in comfort and privacy. Designed to accommodate two, all villas are crafted with the concept of laidback luxury in a lush, natural setting: bathrooms with an open to the air shower area and a dining spot in a sand-lined patio. Additionally, each villa has a comfortable garden-facing desk and a complimentary mini-bar. Once inside the curved walls of your villa, lounge in the hammock outdoors with a book or savour the indulgence of a shower open to the sky.

Located in the idyllic wildlife township of Thekkady, Cardamom County is a nature retreat bordered on one side by the Periyar National Park and Tiger Reserve and its lush highland forest and wetlands ecosystem. On the other side, we are embraced by a vibrant spice-trading community typical of the hill stations above the Malabar Coast. Walking distance from both the entry to the Periyar and our village neighbours, we also welcome you to simply relax at the resort.



Cardamom County rests atop a small hillock with 44 lovely cottages blending into the terraced slopes. Rooms are spacious and airy, with interiors that are simple and elegant. Each cottage also has its own little patio from where guests can enjoy the lush natural habitat.


Our All Spice restaurant is a tribute to its own name. A feast of tastes and textures, All Spice mixes ethnic traditions, natural ingredients and original fusion food concepts. Here, we source as much produce as possible from around the resort to create food experiences from our farm to your table. All Spice also has an expansive open-air terrace able to accommodate a large number of guests; an ideal venue for informal parties, grills and barbeque. Enjoy your choice of beer and wine at the restaurant or at Cinnabar, overlooking the loveliest pool the hills have to offer.


Cardamom County is also home to Ayura Wellness, our Green Leaf certified wellness centre, and where we offer an introduction to Ayurveda, an ancient way of life that promotes healthy living. The highly skilled team of Ayurveda specialists at Ayura provide tailor-made stress-relieving therapies, using handmade medicinal oils. For an experience that frees the body, mind and soul from all tensions, aches and pressures, Ayura is the perfect destination.


Guests can relax by the swimming pool, hit the gym, use snooker, table tennis, caroms for recreation or Yoga centres to energise, and spend time at the in-house library and shop at the Design store at the resort. For those who want to bring business closer to the great outdoors, the fully-equipped conference halls offer the ideal setting. The Pennycuick Hall can accommodate 250 guests, be it for celebrations, business gatherings, or public functions.

They talk about being spoilt for choice. Cardamom County shows you how!



Cruise on sustainable houseboats- Fleet of 9 authentic houseboats.

Waterside Villages - Paddy Farms - Floating Supermarkets - Slow life on the river

Address- Xandari Riverscapes, Near Pallathuruthy Bridge, A C Road, AC Road, Sanathanapuram, Alleppey– 688 003

Central Reservation: +91 484 434 4666

Xandari Riverscapes is your entry into the stunning ecosystem that thrives and flourishes along the Vembanad - the largest lake in Kerala and the longest in India.



Our fleet of 9 traditional houseboats, called "kettuvallams", are designed to complement the tranquil passage on the picturesque backwaters. They are built with wood harvested from local jackfruit tree plantations, hand-stitched by local craftsmen with coconut fiber rope (coir) and strengthened with fish oil—a tradition pre-dating industrial engineering techniques but proving stronger than modern alternatives. We are committed to keeping this knowledge and traditions alive, with your support.


Each houseboat is furnished comfortably and attractively while hewing close to tradition. The boats have one, two or three air-conditioned bedrooms. All have an open-air living area and a fully- equipped kitchen. From the viewing deck, or through your bedroom’s picture window, and on a canoe through the backwater heartland, you will see simplicity in action, and the result is immediate: slow down, de-stress, rejuvenate.


Meals are an essential part of the Xandari Riverscapes experience. With your backwater excursion beginning at noon, sit down to a delectable lunch of classic Kerala cuisine cooked on board. Dinner comes calling under starlit skies on clear nights, at the spot where your boat rests to watch the day close out. Rise to the sight of sun rays dancing into your bedrooms, and watch the day unfold as the boat sails past a day in the life of the backwater country.



Historic Port Town Experience- 16 Rooms 

Heritage Architecture - Old World Cuisine - Spice Bazaar - Natural Harbour - Old Port - Fishing Nets - Seascape - Muziris Biennale

Address- Xandari Harbour, V/40, Bazaar Road, Mattanchery, Kochi, Kerala 682002. India.

Central Reservation: +91 484 434 4666

Gateway to the oldest Jewish community in the world and the last vestiges of colonialism, Mattanchery is anchored in history. Its identity as the nucleus of a spice trade spanning centuries breathes today in still-standing godowns and warehouses. Straddling Bazar Road, these structures once stocked spices like pepper and cinnamon before traders moved across the harbour, to the thriving city of Ernakulam. The bustle of trade lulled, several of the buildings crumbled away and others waited - with downed shutters - for a new calling.



The century-old warehouses that make up Xandari Harbour are some of the last. Preceding MLHS' conservation-focussed thinking, the three buildings that comprise the property served different purposes. One served as a chummery or lodging house for ship captains, eventually becoming a modest hotel. The other waterfront godowns housed spices and groceries like rice before they were used by fishermen as pass-through.


Respectfully restored and largely untouched, the buildings and their maritime legacy find a renewed being today in Xandari Harbour. This 16-room gem box of a hotel is walkable distance from Calvathy boat jetty and midway between Vasco da Gama Square and the famous Dutch Palace.


Views of the harbour and a bustling spice trade mark the 14 tastefully done guestrooms and 2 suites. From the spectacular Harbour Suite – with water views on three sides - watch colorful fishing boats head out to sea. The Spice Suite also looks over the water, with the added feature of offering snapshots of Bazaar Road. Of the 14 guestrooms, four are on the waterfront, four have private gardens and the rest have large picture windows that frame panoramas of blue and the vibrant colours of trade. The infinity pool in the center of the property, which seems to float on the edge of Kochi harbour, offers the perfect place to refresh after a day on the town.


The restaurant at Xandari Harbour is called 51 - named after the building number of the spice warehouse that it is housed in. The award winning heritage structure is restored as a fitting tribute to the spice route.


The delectable fare offered at Restaurant 51 has reflections of the food and cuisine along the Spice Route. Our Chef uses locally sourced fresh produce to create an array of edibles that have traces of Dutch, Portuguese and English cuisine in them, combined with the rich legacy of traditional Kerala recipes.


Xandari Harbour is a nostalgic reminder of ancient sea routes and trade; of visitors and kindred who left a mark on the landscape, faith, and culture of the land.

This is the firm anchorage of our conservation story.

Art and architecture are highlights of the Xandari experience in Costa Rica. 24 spacious villas nestled on a 40-acre plantation are surrounded by lush gardens, with terraces facing spectacular views of Costa Rica’s majestic Central Valley day and night. Each villa is a unique design, with tropical colours and contemporary design.



A private forest reserve with rivers, five natural waterfalls, and 2.5 miles of trails offers excellent hiking, birding, and communion with nature. Three pools, each with a unique view of coffee plantations, provide added incentive for a morning swim. Or, start your day in our Yoga studio and save your swim for later at our sunset pool. Wide range of natural treatments are offered in private jalapas at the Spa Village, each featuring a hot-tub overlooking forest and valley at 3,900 ft.


The Ayura Wellness treatments are known to be some of the best in Costa Rica and done with all natural ingredients. Each of our five private, palm-roofed jalapas has its own hot tub and massage table, where you can enjoy one of our many treatment options, from scrubs to massages, with a full view of the open valley. Enjoy your spa experience to the fullest, relax in the warm jacuzzi. Yoga sessions are readily available in the studio.


Xandari's terrace restaurant features a variety of healthy choices, from Costa Rican specialties to Mediterranean and Californinan cuisines. Our farm-to-table menu begins at breakfast and continues through lunch and dinner, featuring produce sourced from our own plantations using all-natural methods.


At Xandari, sustainability underlines our every effort. Guests are invited to plant native trees during their stay at Xandari. We research which trees, bushes and flowers especially attract, feed and provide shelter to the various types of birds and butterflies that inhabit Costa Rica and are constantly adding new varieties to our botanical gardens. Listen to the songbirds as you walk through the orchards or take any of the guided tours to the farms, orchid garden and greenhouse.


An experience that is a perfect testimonial to Nature's inherent ways, a community’s bond with the earth, and the promises of a responsible way of seeing the world - that is Xandari.
