#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.

Recently went to Varkala from Trivandrum on a solo trip, and to my pleasant surprise found this cute little place, adorned with tribal huts, and so many surprises. The bedrooms are very different from usual hotels and I was quite happy with the staff and how they really take care of you.. also happened to meet the owners during my stay. They are building a swimming pool as well in the property and a yoga practice area that should just elevate and make this a supreme experience. You will catch cats, peacocks and exotic birds in the property if you are lucky.. I saw all 3:) Dilip the manager for the property is just super helpful with everything, so special mention for him. Love the boutique hotel and recommend it to anyone looking to hide away into the lap of nature and
