Arakal Heritage is a homestay situated around 3 kms away from Marari Beach. Abi and his family run this property. As stated to us, this is a heritage property more than 300 years old. Well maintained by family and situated around 200 meters from sea shore. We stayed there for 3 nights in January 2017. Mr. Abi & his family members are an amazing hosts. They take care of every small requirements of their guests. Mr. Abi considered our request of change of room because of very small size and shifted to the better room at discounted price. Being a home stay, one shouldn’t expect a luxurious treatment what one can get in Hotels or Resorts. Rooms are of non-standard smaller sizes. Beds are also queen size beds. Clean linens are provided. Because of its proximity with sea, entire ground area is covered by sand. The nearby beach is hardly 200 meters away however the approach path to go there is not so clean and clear and crosses through some local houses as well. This can be developed little better. The family provides complimentary breakfast and home made lunch and dinner, The food is tasty however breakfast menu is too small and need to be expanded. The property also has a swimming pool, which is a good fun time for kids. The flip side is its distance from Marari Beach so you need an auto every time you wish to go there. The biggest flip is high tariff in comparison to the luxury and amenities being provided. So certainly its not value for money. It is better to stay as close to Marari Beach as possible. Overall a good stay .. a cool and serene place but with basic amenities.
