I visited there just 2 days back for 2 nights. Very basic and had insects, still did the job for what we had visited. Very close to beach. ₹1800/Night for AC room and ₹1200/night for Non-AC room. Beds are worst part, I request to make sturdier. Love to stay again.

Loved the place! Me and wife were travelling with our cousins. We enjoyed a peaceful stay and the pricing was also fair enough. The manager was very welcoming and didn't trouble is with unusual conditions. Was helpful too. Keep up the good work but please take care to maintain the rooms more lighted condition, kinda which blends to the bamboo hut. Thanks

Our stay was very enjoyable here. The place is tranquil and pretty with most helpful staff. Christmas decorations made the atmosphere very special. Our AC family room was spacious and had everything we needed. Would love to come back again.

Quite place. Sea view. Near the shacks / food joints. One of the best hotel's in the area. a bit hidden due to jam packed shops surrounding it. A kilometer or 800 metres from the Varkala Helipad. Easily near the best of the attractions of Varkala.

Really really nice spot on top of the cliff, panasonic views right out the entrance to the area. Price was good, however a little over priced for what was quite basic accomation. Room was damp, wood worms repeatedly left piles of bits on the floor, needs some good TLC.

Stayed at this place for one night with cousins and had a good time. It is located on the North end of Varkala cliff. The rooms are very clean, spacious and comfortable. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit Varkala.

I booked three nights here. It is a perfect spot, in a private setting on the cliff of Verkala. Staff are friendly, atmosphere is relaxed. Affordable rates with no hidden charges. Spacious huts. no hot water in my one, but trust me you don't need hot water! We did have an amazing thunder storm one night and had no electricity or fan or AC for that night, but they reduced my room rate further for this night. It was close to everything and had a beautiful garden and nice private sitting area outside each hut. Would stay here if back in Verkala.

Couldn't have picked a better place! The huts are spacious, affordable, clean & the staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms aren't automatically cleaned, as only you have the key, so just ask for anything you need or want done- no problem. Great chilled out community vibe. Lots of solo travellers and couples of all ages. Only 15 metre walk from my hut to the beautiful cliff edge & steps to beach. There's no restaurant, but a million great cafes and restaurants next door and less than 2 min walk. There's fans, but no AC, so it can get a bit warm and having a nap during the day is not a comfortable option, but at night the fan is usually fine. No hot water, but honestly, you don't need it in Varkala! Will definitely stay next time I'm in Varkala!
