In varkala there are two 'Bamboo villages'. According to our resgister no guest named 'shruthi' stayed in our place. We think this review is in the wrong place.

A relaxing and chilled out place to hang out and reflect. Hutts are cosy and comfortable with hammocks to relax in. Located at the north end giving privacy too. Lal the housekeeping and all rounder staff is amazing..so helpful and friendly..look out for him.. 😉
