#14 of 67 hotels in Varkala Town
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, The 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.

I stayed with my family at this gorgeous resort for few days in mid December. I was amazed to see the beauty of this resort and was impressed with the service provided by the staff at V Resorts - Varkala. Staff was professional and well trained they were highly responsive and ensured that we get best of the experience of this resort and varkala. The food servers was very delicious and was cooked in a very hygienic environment. Raju, Deepu and Vijay were exceptionally good. I would certainly be visiting this place again and would high recommended for families to visit and it is close to beach, nice green walk ways and is child friendly. Thank you for a rejuvenating stay Veena Parashar

After travelling in India my first night without earplugs. So close to the beach and still, the feeling of coming home when returning. Trying a little bit the restaurants on the cliff and not feeling good with my stomach, I started to eat more and more in the resort, freshly made, just what I wanted to have (non-spicy ;-). And I liked the matress, as it was not as hard, as I often found it in India, when it felt like sleeping on the floor. For me it was ideal. I was glad, that I spent a lot of time before choosing it, because I definitely made the right choice. Because of the clay structure of the hat and so much green, I did not need AC at all. Great team, and my best Hindi teachers! Will miss the place.
