Andhakaranazhi is a laid-back coastal village on the Kochi – Alleppey, Kerala coast. At about 17 km from the nearby and more popular Mararikulam, it provides a more serene and tranquil alternative. To get to the palm lined beaches of Andhakaranazh you have to meander through the neighboring lush paddy fields and network of narrow canals and bridges, characteristic of backwater villages.
Arali is somewhere between a bed & breakfast and a guest house. It’s a one bedroom villa with a living cum open kitchenette. It is not a resort. Set in a sandy garden dotted with baby plants, hammocks and tall palms, Arali is only one wall away from the unspoiled white beach and the sound of the waves lapping on the shore shushes you to sleep.
