We chanced upon this property while looking for a place to stay in Varkala during our unplanned trip. Beautiful and cool cottages a short walk away from the beach. It is so peaceful with very helpful staff. For breakfast we were offered an option of Eggs and toast or Indian dishes. We got a massage as well at the inhouse...

Lovely place, in lush green setting just next to the cliff and close to the beach. Clean authentic rooms and excellent service. We stayed 4 days with my son. We will come back for sure on a next trip to Varkala

This is a lovely hotel with a very individual feel. It was very quiet whilst we were there but we weren't in peak season. The hotel is a 5 minute walk to the middle of the Varkala cliff area. Really easy to access the restaurants and just a little further to the main beach. Great place to stay on a...

We had been recommended this place by friends who told us the accommodation was quirky, clean and picturesque. They were right. We enjoyed waking up to the sounds of birdsong and having our breakfast served to our hut. The staff were extremely helpful and attentive and genuine concern was shown when I made it aware I was feeling slightly unwell...

We were blown away by how beautiful this place is. So much attention to detail, most romantic atmospheric cottages and well maintained tropical gardens Highly recommend this place 5 min walk from sea.

A friend who visited last December recommended the Bohemian Masala, as a nice off-the-beaten-path place to stay. I arrived as a solo traveler, with my husband to meet me in a few days.

I booked this place based on the Guardian's article and previous reviews on Trip advisor. As mentioned in an earlier comment, the management team has changed, so don't expect the "organic food", "spiritual" atmosphere, and all the good adverts you can read on their website, BUT Dilip, the current manager, is a lovely person who will help you out and...

There are some properties that you connect with the minute you walk into them! With greenery all around, you immediately get a feeling of peace and relax. The rooms are pretty basic with very interesting architecture. When we were told there was no A/c we were a bit concerned but the rooms are surprisingly cool! Beautiful interior decoration as well....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It's another world, the Varkala beach resort. Built around the eco-concept, it borrows its architecture from the natural science of the tribals. The handmade cottages made with mud, clay and flowers ensure maximum natural energy air flow, translate that into cool even during summer. In the midst of a thick green cover, and a 5-minute walk from the cliffs and the beach, V Resorts Bohemian Masala stands apart from the other beach resorts in Varkala. The resort promising all the sensual pursuits of a traveller, such as traditional temples, beaches, an eclectic food scene, as well as Ayurvedic massages, is ideal for a peaceful, tranquil vacation. Lounge around in the hammocks in peace and quiet, sample the traditional Kerala fare, walk around its herb and spice garden, or just sit around and meet interesting travellers from across the world. Those times, when you do feel like a walk, step out and hit the beach, indulge in water sports, or try your skills at surfing. ... more   less
