The cottages are clean and well maintained but very basic. The front desk manager, Manu, was very helpful during our stay. He was prompt and catered to all our queries and requests.

However, the stay was not as we had expected. This basic lodging that the owners call a hotel is basically a cluster of ordinary cottages. To be eligible to be a hotel, the establishment must provide at least a few minimum services. However, if the guests have to so much as fill the water bottles in their rooms themselves, then it's not a hotel but a hostel. It's one of those places that under the garb of being ecofriendly provides no hospitality but is priced high (We paid 4000 for one night!) The rooms are dimly lit; I had to literally squint my eyes every time I used the washroom. It enhances the ambience of the room but would appreciate the option of a brighter tube light! Oh and the space marketed on their website as terrace is actually just a verandah with no view.

What put us off the most was that there was a power cut around noon and this place did not have a power backup! Even hostels have 24*7 power backups! The staff was apathetic to our complaints and outright told us that they would be able to anything in this scenario. Thankfully the power came back in 4 hours.

Inda mostly caters to backpackers. But if like me you want comfort and are not averse to the idea of room service, please avoid this "off beat" place.

The Cafe on the premises is a small one and gets busy in the evenings. Again will not recommend if you like some peace and quiet while having your meal and don't hate seasoning. The only thing we enjoyed was the buffalo patty burger. Every thing else on the menu was insipid with no flavour at all!

Beautiful hotel. We aren’t the type of people who stay in and relax at the hotel when we travel. We prefer to explore the area instead. But InDa Hotel is such a beautiful, peaceful and relaxing place that we decided to enjoy our little cottage for a bit too. The breakfast is amazing – do not miss it here! Ajji, the manager, helped us right from booking the place (got a discount too) to sorting us out with whatever we needed, from restaurant recommendations to sightseeing, everything. All the staff were friendly including the café as well. It’s also close to the beach, it’s located on the North Cliff of Varkala beach and is a 5-10 min walk. Hoping they expand outside Kerala too. Will definitely be visiting again.

Room tip: Rooms 3 and 4 are tucked away in the corner. We preferred the privacy they offered. Opt for a room with breakfast while booking.

The hotel is beautiful and the staff is very friendly, I ordered Burger and Supreme Pizza. The Food was good and had ample quantity. However the the waiter mixed up the order and delivered lime juice instead of hot chocolate. But he understood the mistake and didn't charge for the hot chocolate.

We stayed in this cool little hotel for only 2 nights and i regret for not staying longer. This place is just like how u see in the pics, had a very laid back vibe to it. Beach is just a walkable distance and that too is a really less crowded one. All the staff is soo helpful especially Akin. Looking forword to visit this place again
