The dim yellow light inside our Ayurvedic massage room soaks into
your skin as soon as you enter. The fragrance of exotic herb oils
blends with soft music in the room, relaxing every inch of you.
Stressful jobs and neck aches are best treated with one of our
massages, so don't bother carrying your laptop! We even have an
in-house Ayurvedic doctor who our guests can consult and
therapies and treatments are prescribed by him using our own
home grown medicated oils.
It was a tradition in Indian lifestyle to bid the evening sun goodbye,
thanking it for a beautiful day. Surya Namaskar, a set of dozen
meditative poses is a stream of yoga practised at the beach, during
sunrise and sunset, and is said to bring energy and life to one's
body. So, we have ‘yoga in the open, out in the beaches’ sessions to
enhance our clients’ experience therefore, allowing for a truly
relaxed state of mind.
FARM TO TABLE PHILOSOPHY
Xandari has been offering farm-to-table menus since the opening
of its first property two decades ago. Set on some of the most
fertile agricultural land in Costa Rica, it is not surprising that from
the beginning we decided to offer a menu enriched by all-natural
vegetables, greens, fruits, herbs and spices grown in our property.
Our commitment, and the productivity of our efforts, have only
grown during these two decades.
In recent years in India we have replicated these practices and
expanded according to the conditions there. At Xandari Pearl,
where we are embedded in fishing communities on all sides of the
resort; our neighbors are our suppliers for fresh fish daily. The
landscape design was initiated as an “edible garden” concept
throughout the property’s 18 acres..
Xandari Pearl's all-day dining restaurant strategically called 'Pearl
Spot' overlooks one of Kerala's most beautiful swimming pools set
naturally within stands of coconut, mango and cashew trees. 'Pearl
Spot' or locally known as 'Karimeen' is infamous and exclusive to
the back waters of Kerala. Curried, fried or simply grilled the
'Karimeen' is a must try at our restaurant which looks more like an
extension of our backyard farm than like a typical restaurant.
There is also demonstration kitchen if you are inclined to learn
from our chefs how to prepare your favourite dishes from our
menu. Xandari Pearl is all about healthy living and organic eating.
All our vegetables come from our own backyard and fresh fish
from a really pleasant community of fishermen living around Pearl.
Our chef is quite a tastemaker who loves his food and has a
passion to delight our guests so do feel free to call on him for any
With over 600 coconut trees around, we think beyond the nut. And
the plants around definitely seem to be thriving on the husk.
Ancient farmers began using the husk in gardening for its
eco-friendliness, impressive water retention, and reusability, you
can plant a tree too.
Ever seen a Vechur cow? The Vechur cow is indigenous to the
region and is widely considered the smallest cow in the world. A
full grown adult is about the size of a juvenile jersey cow, Oh! There
are goats too and the joys on the little one’s faces will feeding fish
and our other four legged family members is truly priceless. Other
activities include coconut treeclimbing, nature walks, guided village
tours, bicycle rides through town or along beach road, cooking
demonstrations, beach volleyball with staff, Interactions with tree
climbers and local community, pool games, Football on the beach
And if none of that seems to do it. Hit the beach. Beaches have a
way of calming us down. 'Counting waves' may be an unrealistic
usage, but walking on the clean sand towards a sunset, soaking in
the breeze has got to be an amazing feeling.
