Arabian Soul was a great place to stay for a week. The room was clean, spacious, and everything worked. Plus it's right next to the coffee shop where everyone hangs out! Couldn't ask for more, thanks!

It is an amazing beautiful and peaceful place to stay, close to the beach, to the restaurants and the helipad. It is a little oasis with flowers and trees, nice rooms with lovely details and an owner with a lot of attention. I stayed more than 2 weeks there in a deep relaxation. There was also the possibility to make... More

The staff member is like our neighbor, he was very friendly. Price is among the best in Varkhala, we had some hick ups in the bathroom maintenance. However, as it was in the verge of closing due to monsoon it was expected though. Well maintained rooms, felt like staying at a home than a hotel.

Staying at Arabian Soul was a highlight of my trip. The place was clean, serene, and with a lovely feeling about it. I loved the Arabian style windows with the breeze from the sea blowing in. There were always fresh flowers in the room too. The location is great - the stairs down to the beach are nearby, the Helipad... More

Pleasant stay, extremely friendly staff, spectacular views, and cheap prices! The ambience was enchanting, it's truly of an Arabian flavor. Location is one of the best in Varkala. Its very secure too. There are two guard dogs that are very alert for any stranger. Would definitely come back.

Wonderful stay at Arabian soul for one week. Clean rooms, wonderful communal balcony/rooftop with ocean view and super helpful staff. The yoga and massage provided by Dr. Raja were top notch and well priced. Great location and I will definitely be back.

We had a wonderful time at Arabian Soul! We were warmly welcomed and immediately felt at home. The rooms are light and clean and it's perfectly positioned next to a great coffee cafe! We would recommend this place in a second. Thank you Naveen and the team! X

we stayed there for 4nigts in Varkala and felt like we are at home. Actually it's even more comfortable than my house since it has a beatiful view of sea(in case of the side room) with coconut tree and banana trees . It was very clean room with colorful wall paint and has nice garden that we could do laptop... More

I went to stay in Arabian Soul first time in 2013 and then I kept coming back. The reason I keep coming back is the laid back atmosphere and the little garden to just chill in. Its quiet but close to everything. Just take the stairs down to the beach. Restaurants are around the corner. The staff is very friendly... More
