We stayed at the Bohemian Masala for 6 nights and enjoyed it thoroughly.
Albeit minutes a away from the Varkala cliff and beach the Bohemian Masala is is very quiet, only noises are from the birds in the beautiful garden.
The rooms are simple but comfortable and tastefully furnished, the veranda is fresh even during the hottest hours.
For breakfast we had every day a different south India delicacy cooked on the spot before our eyes.
The managers Dilip is very kind and helpful, he arranged for us a day trip to Kollam and Munroe island and transportation to the railway station.
All in all highly recommended

I have just returned from a week’s stay at The Bohemian Masala and found it to be wonderful. It was peaceful, friendly and I really couldn’t have asked for more. It’s a few minutes walk from the beach and the cliff top shops and restaurants but feels tucked away and in a magic world of its own. Rooms are very comfortable and artistic with a/c and fans and a generous verandah to shelter from the heat of the day. The breakfasts were delicious and substantial and I had daily Ayurvedic massages which have restored me in all sorts of ways. I was in my own and felt very safe and welcomed. Dilip was always on hand and the staff were lovely. Overall, I would wholeheartedly recommend that everyone takes some time out to visit.

Bohemian masala is a tranquil haven hidden away from the cliff side but walking distance to vakala beach. We had Private morning yoga just before the heat of the day followed by a daily changing kerelan breakfast. Lovely, kind staff and daily ayuverdic treatments. Thank you Dilip!

I visited here and stayed for 1 week and I find utmost pleasure and peace from all the disturbances of outside commercial stay. I recommend this place as the manager mr. Dilip and and the staff found it very friendly and helpful and more importantly took care of me during my stay . Something we need in hospitality. The ambience is perfect for solace filled with greenery and natural scenic.

Excellent stay, excellent service. The property is very neat and well kept. It is also very close from the cliff.

The management is very friendly and helpful. 24/7 help is available. They even washed my car by the next morning.

And when I lost my jbl speakers, they found it and called and made me aware of it.
In short, superb stay worth 5 start rating.
