The BBC were here in September to film the second series of ‘The Real Marigold Hotel’ and it will be aired on 15th February on BBC1 at 9pm. Lionel Blair, Dennis Taylor, Bill Oddie, Amanda Barrie, Sheila Ferguson, Paul Nicholas, Rustie Lee and Miriam Stoppard will be booking into ‘The Real Marigold Hotel’ in Fort Cochin, Kerala.
Some of them visited us at #MarariVillas to view #MarariBeach properties as an option for a more rewarding retirement than in the UK.

"Imagine stellar sea views from not one, but every room of your villa. Imagine the waves and breeze providing the soundtrack to your days. Imagine lounging on a daybed, sipping a cocktail, waiting for your private chef to lay out a spread. And imagine having your own masseur—on call. These are the blissful promises of Bougainvillea."
The Independent (UK), Saturday 12 October 2013 The Big Six: Beach Retreats in Kerala
"This collection of three serviced villas offers a home from home on a secluded beach mid-way up the Keralan coast. Ranging in size from one bedroom to three, there's a villa to suit most people. The two family cottages, Orchid and Hibiscus, each have a private pool within their walled gardens, while the larger Palm Villa opens straight on to the beach. A chef provides meals on request, but guests are also free to enjoy their own personal slice of heaven undisturbed."
