I stayed a week in Eden Garden and it was one of my best experiences in India. The roomsbare bright, clean and cosy. The resort has excellent food and offers great massages. The staff is very friendly and will do everything to make you feel comfortable.

Verk friendly staff. God location. Calm, still close to the beach. Yoga and massage if you want. God atmosphere. It's like à small village with different houses. Stayed two floors upp, room with shower and balcony. Simpel and nice. Will return.

The location is just a minute walking from Papanasham beach. We enjoyed our stay in a group. Hotel staff were accommodating to provide us all rooms together (thanks to off season too). Very natural surroundings, greenery: true to Kerala punchline of 'God's own country'. True value to money. Half of the group has massages done: all with no complains and... More

If you want the best massage in India then you have to visit Anu in Eden Garden. She is simply wonderful. The yoga teacher here was also excellent. This was definitely a highlight of my month spend in India.

Eden Gardens is well situated between North and South Cliffs. The small cottages are in a garden setting which is tranquil and it is nice to sit out on the cottage verandah. The hotel is let down by a complete absence of service. Not once did anyone say Good morning or offer assistance. That said it did represent reasonable value... More

stayed in the big trippy mushroom cabin - just magic! great massages, and lovely people. good service, and clean. breakfast not so hot - but there is a fabulous restaurant overlooking the beach which is decent & not to pricey for the area. so perhaps they just dont bother with the competition...

We were staying somewhere else but we just went to do the ayurvedic massage and it was perfect. The rooms where they do the massage are nice and clean which is very important to get oiled in all the body. Really relaxing. Girls doing the massage are nice. You can shower after and they have hot water and furnish everything.... More

Everything was o.k. at this hotel, location,price, hot water, wi-fi were all good, but the mosquito net on our room was very grubby and smelt bad; it had to be used because there is no air con and there were quite a few mosquitoes about.

We had 6 nights here, after only booking three as it was such a lovely place to be in varkala. Papanasam beach is great if you do not want to walk up and down the cliff. We stayed in the bamboo cabins which were big and airy with own verandah overlooking small ponds. Very peaceful but beware dogs and don't... More
