“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

Cliff Lounge was the perfect place to unload after our long train journey, great price and so clean and comfortable we really felt at home away from home. Everything we needed was right there, as the guesthouse is perfectly located across from Lonely's Planet's infamous Juice Shack (healthiest place for breakfast in Varkala), and near to lots of shops, great restaurants, and the beach. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Varkala. Thanks so much and see you again! xx

I chose this homestay mainly because the guide book said it had 'uninterrupted sea views'. I have no idea how that could be possible because there are buildings and trees between the rooms and the sea. That said the room was fine although if you're arriving from Europe in February (as I did) I'd recommend getting an air conditioned room.

If you like your coffee, take breakfast in the Abba restaurant just along the cliff.

Had ground floor room there for a few days in January. The room was clean and cool. Nice open area in the shade outside to sit in. Located right near the main tourist strip on the beach, but quiet. Really nice and helpful guy running the place who kindly gave us his plug adapter- thanks Khan. No breakfast included so you could go where you wanted, although there was a discount for the neighboring restaurant.

The Cliff Lounge was our base for 5 nights during our visit to Varkala. The booking was handled efficiently, we were warmly welcomed and the room was beautifully decorated with some special touches. We made good use of our private balcony and also took advantage of a cookery lesson on the premises in Khan's. There were lots of good places for breakfast nearby and it was just a few minutes from the beach. We got lots of useful advice about local amenities including a great massage a few doors away.
