Stayed here for little over 2 weeks and the word hospitality took on a new meaning for me! Kunji and team made my stay memorable to another degree. They promised me that when I left Varkala my memories would be 'sticky' and surely that's the case. I stayed in the sea facing room on the 1st floor which was decorated mostly in white (my favourite). The entire place has a simplistic yet elegant vibe about it. I could constantly hear the ocean even though the doors and windows were closed. I used to sit on the balcony and have my cup of coffee in the morning and just that experience would relax me for the entire day. Kukku the chef made yummy breakfast every morning (total English style - :D ). They arranged a bike for me so I could visit the cliffs and beaches whenever I wanted. This place is also super close to the beach (like I said I could hear the ocean throughout). Just the vibe of this place is surreal and I would recommend that you definitely visit Mint Inside just to experience the tranquility of the place and the hospitality of the staff.

The only reason I rated this 4 stars as I feel they need to improve the washroom and overall cleanliness but that's only because I'm an OCD freak. Point to note - they took care of my concerns the moment I highlighted them.

In summary, visit and enjoy your experience at Mint Inside. It's a guarantee you will love it!

I booked this hotel by using google maps and the hotel pictures.
I am certainty NOT disappointed!!!!

The rooms are spacious and with a minimalistic decoration, near the beach, near the promenades with shops.

The staff was expeditious and efficient, well done!!!!

Some tips for the future travelers, the bedrooms with see view are equipped with AC, the breakfast start at 9:00 but they are quite quick on bringing your order.

If you can’t stand Arab chants inviting to the mosquee I suggest you a room with Air-conditioning :)

I traveled to India, settled in different hotels. In this hotel I did not like the price-quality ratio, in the photo the room seems large and bright, but unfortunately the room was very small, it smelled of damp and not light enough. For that kind of money, I could find a room many times better than this. I do not recommend this hotel!

Small room, but new and fresh.
When showering, you wet the small bathroom as the shower is placed in the middle of the bathroom without drapery.
Breakfast is served between 9-11 which is a little too late for us. The room was not cleaned during the two days we stayed here.
No beach towels to borrow.
3 minutes walk to Odayam beach where you can rent umbrellas making 200Rs (2.5EUR) per day. Cozy beach with little people.
What we liked:
- Everything is clean and new
- The hammock outside
- Good bathroom lighting (a common lack of many places)

What could be better:
- Extra towel to put on the wet bathroom floor
- Better information on arrival
- In-room safe
- Mote tentative service
