#3 of 80 in Varkala Town
InDaHotel is a unique place where ancient Indian traditions are harmoniously joined with the present time. The hotel is located in the resort area of Varkala, on the North Cliff. It is a perfect place for residents of megapolises wishing to escape from fuss and city's noise, yogis and all fans of private rest. You will feel the serenity of the nature. In 2014 the hotel was completely restored keeping the original architecture and atmosphere. InDaHotel is situated on the coast line, it's only 150 meters from Varkala Beach. The total hotel territory is 1600 m2 and it is densely planted with different exotic plants creating an oasis of coolness. Thus allowing you to feel an integral part of nature through a thorough purification of body and soul for a holiday for added value. The hotel complex consists of a main building, 6 cottages, cafe, bar and the lounge terrace. Also we offer you free and secure parking. There are four standard rooms in the main building. Each room has a separate street entrance that provides additional comfort and privacy. For our guests we provide all conditions especially for those who love and practice yoga or just like to work in the fresh air. Yoga area and well-designed, comfortable arbours for freelancers are located away from the main building, bungalows and cafe. Proper space zoning is a pledge for a comfortable rest of our guests. It is for this reason the cafe is located at some distance from the residential area. Free Wi-Fi is available all over the hotel territory. You can also have an opportunity to order different drinks from our fresh bar. InDaHotel is situated 50 km from the international airport and 3 km from the railway station. Transport to and from the airport can be arranged at short notice if required.

Was there for 3 weeks and was as happy as can be! The room was very comfortable, clean and spacious. They have security in the building which made me feel very safe. It is conveniently located from the Cliff. My sheets were changed regularly, the room cleaned and sprayed for bugs. The staff was kind, helpful and always had a smile on their face. Abishek and Aji made sure I always had everything I needed and that my needs were being met. I will definitely be going back and staying at this property.

The cottages are clean and well maintained but very basic. The front desk manager, Manu, was very helpful during our stay. He was prompt and catered to all our queries and requests. However, the stay was not as we had expected. This basic lodging that the owners call a hotel is basically a cluster of ordinary cottages. To be eligible to be a hotel, the establishment must provide at least a few minimum services. However, if the guests have to so much as fill the water bottles in their rooms themselves, then it's not a hotel but a hostel. It's one of those places that under the garb of being ecofriendly provides no hospitality but is priced high (We paid 4000 for one night!) The rooms are dimly lit; I had to literally squint my eyes every time I used the washroom. It enhances the ambience of the room but would appreciate the option of a brighter tube light! Oh and the space marketed on their website as terrace is actually just a verandah with no view. What put us off the most was that there was a power cut around noon and this place did not have a power backup! Even hostels have 24*7 power backups! The staff was apathetic to our complaints and outright told us that they would be able to anything in this scenario. Thankfully the power came back in 4 hours. Inda mostly caters to backpackers. But if like me you want comfort and are not averse to the idea of room service, please avoid this "off beat" place. The Cafe on the premises is a small one and gets busy in the evenings. Again will not recommend if you like some peace and quiet while having your meal and don't hate seasoning. The only thing we enjoyed was the buffalo patty burger. Every thing else on the menu was insipid with no flavour at all!

Beautiful hotel. We aren’t the type of people who stay in and relax at the hotel when we travel. We prefer to explore the area instead. But InDa Hotel is such a beautiful, peaceful and relaxing place that we decided to enjoy our little cottage for a bit too. The breakfast is amazing – do not miss it here! Ajji, the manager, helped us right from booking the place (got a discount too) to sorting us out with whatever we needed, from restaurant recommendations to sightseeing, everything. All the staff were friendly including the café as well. It’s also close to the beach, it’s located on the North Cliff of Varkala beach and is a 5-10 min walk. Hoping they expand outside Kerala too. Will definitely be visiting again.

The hotel is beautiful and the staff is very friendly, I ordered Burger and Supreme Pizza. The Food was good and had ample quantity. However the the waiter mixed up the order and delivered lime juice instead of hot chocolate. But he understood the mistake and didn't charge for the hot chocolate.
