We must say we have been very impress with our week stay here. The place is immaculately clean from the room, the stairs and the lobby. Every thing is cleaned everyday, including the courtyard. The rooms are a good size and include a fridge and kettle. It also has the best shower we've had in 6 weeks of travel. The rooms have a balcony which overlooks the ocean. Beach and restaurants are only a couple minutes walk away. The staff is very friendly and any requests have been taken care of immediately. I highly recommend this place for a stay in Varkala. (They even have thier own generator if there is a power outage.)

Really nice and modern small hotel with great location. There are only 7 rooms I think, ours was comfortable and clean, with a ocean view balcony. Facilities and cleanliness are very good by mid-range standards in India. There is just the hotel and a small garden, but its right on the central part of the cliff and is right next to the Darjeeling Cafe, which is one of the nicest places to eat/drink on the the cliff. The staff was very helpful and assisted us with cars/activities when we needed them. Not much to complain about. People should probably be aware that they often have live music at the Darjeeling Cafe and you can definitely hear in in your room. We found it quite nice and they do end by 10PM, but be aware if that kind of thing bothers you.

My 11 days staying was long but very comfort. I love small apartments and here i had chance to live my own as i like. Nobody was knocking my door for room service. They did it only if i was out and requested it. Not disturbing, very polite, smily and friendly stuff, providing fresh towels, water, taxi, adapters and anything i needed. Special thanks for arranging my local trips and finding out the time to visit temples. The room is quite big, has sunset view at every balcony. Steeps to the beach are very close and a lot of nice cafe around with ability to have different breakfasts/dinner every day in the new place. In the room there is tea pot and the fridge so i was absolutely independent )) i could keep fruits from the market there and make tea at night sitting at balcony. Big advantage of this hotel is having diesel generator. In India is very common power down, but pumps, AC and sockets were functional. And i liked modern design of that hotel and the quality of finishing materials. I recommend it for sure to those who likes privacy and comfort
