The hospitality at Maadathil is be experienced to be believed. The lengths to which they go to make your stay comfortable is just outstanding. We liked them so much that we have come to stay here for the 2nd time in two months. How stand out the property is can be judged by the fact that we tried two adjacent places and realised how Maadathil is head and shoulders above them. It’s situated on a wonderful location which sees stunning sunsets each day. The rooms are spic and span, the furnishing is thoughtfully done and to top it all, priced quite economically. It’s quite unreal as to why their classy villa property (Villa Maadathil) is priced so economically. Coming back to hospitality, right from the owner to staff to cook are wonderfully warm people. How they patiently put up with our three year old brats antics and were so warm to him all the time in itself will make us come back again and again. It won’t be complete if you cannot commend one of their staff, Anees in particular. He shoulders multiple responsibilities at the place, but yet is so wonderfully enterprising and patient. Ditto with another staff Kukku. Outstanding location, well-maintained property, brilliant people, strongly recommended!!!

Maadathil cottage is a beautiful resort in varkala. We have seen many resorts but didnot find any other like this one. The service, staff, the owner are so coopearative. The cottages and food is very good. We had an awesome experience at the cottage. The cottage is just infront of the beach with sea sound very clearly audible. Very peaceful and amazing. Aneesh is very helping and cooperative. He is the one guy, who is available for any help within like seconds, he can make anything available for you at his best efforts. Very polite staff and very cooperative. Lovely place to be at.

We stayed in this wonderful property located on the secluded Odayam beach for 7 nights. The cottages are well equipped with wooden furniture, adequate toiletries, and a patio with excellent views of the coconut trees adorning the beach and the sea. The beach is just 30 steps from the cottages. The common areas have hammocks, deck chairs and a tall swing where one can spend hours. There is a small naturally shaded open air area for breakfast, chai or just chat with friends. The staff is very accomodating, polite and friendly and they make sure you have everything you need for a great stay. Special mention for Aneesh who went out of his way to help us have a good stay. Mujahir can arrange boat trips into the sea and arrange renting scooters. He welcomes you and is always ready for interesting chats. This property offers a peaceful, hospitable and private experience of Varkala. The main cliff is just 2 kms on foot and 3.5 kms by road. Would definitely go back for a longer stay.

I went with my family for a short break and had a wonderful time there. Location is beautiful, with breathtaking views of Arabian sea. The beach in front of the cottage is like a private beach where you can enjoy your private time. Decently maintained cottages. Friendly staff makes the stay more comfortable. Special thanks to Anees.
