In the middle of everything and still offside, the house is like an oasis where you can release from the busy cliff road. In the upstairs room you have the view to the sea and into the sunset. The way to the beach is a flow, especially in the early morning. The softness of the mattress let you sink deep... More

It is my second time that I choose Arabian Soul for my Christmas and New Year holiday. In the beautiful upstairs room with ocean view, where you can hear the tropical birds chanting in the morning I restore my energies. Relax compleatly by doing yoga or Taiji on the roof top. It needs only two steps to get from the... More

Arabian Soul is a beautiful, original, characterful guest house set within a gorgeous garden and run by the most amazing and lovely hosts you can imagine. It felt like visiting a long lost friend than staying at a new destination. The decor has simple but very original touches that sets it apart from your typical Varkala GH. And the hosts... More

We stayed at this lovely place for about a week. Brygida and Naveem plus the 3 dogs are a lovely team and made us feel welcome. The Guesthouse is located at the busy cliff street but 20 steps back so you feel peace when you enter the property. Our room was lovely, but became too hot during the day. Water... More

I came to Varkala straight from Neyyar Dam and Arabian Soul had been recommended by a girl I'd met at the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Dhanwantari Ashram. In the middle of what can be quite a touristy, busy stretch, Arabian Soul offers a beautiful, peaceful respite. Close to everything but quite, beautiful and calm. Brygida and Naveen are both lovely -... More

This place is absolutely amazing. Brygida and her partner are wonderful, thoughtful, and attentive hosts. I arrived with a friend after a huge hassle in the town and this place really felt like a home away from home. The rooms are wonderful and so cute. The view is beautiful and the yard is immaculate. There is a rooftop available to... More

The Arabian Soul is such a peaceful place, located on the wonderful Varkala cliff, directly in front of the ocean. It is a special place with a warm soul and much love in the details, for exmple the lovely decorated rooms, the nice sit out on the first floor and the beautiful garden. Brygida made my stay unique. We picked... More

I enjoyed my stay here so much, that i extended my 6 night stay to 20 nights. This charming guesthouse with a beautiful garden is so peaceful, quiet right beside the heart of the action and near the sea so that you fall asleep listening to the sea. There is love in the details of the place and a relaxing... More

I'd planned on a few days break (from my all India bike ride) and ended up staying just over two weeks! The relaxed atmosphere and beautiful rooms made it difficult to leave. A wonderful relaxing time that has left me feeling recharged and ready to start riding again. Thank you for your hospitality Brygida - if, in the future, I... More

The arabian soul, a beautiful guest house on a dramatic cliff with an amazing view onto the indian ocean. It´s a special, spiritual and powerful place. We experienced the "small" monsoon there, but beside a bit tooooooo much rain, we had a wonderful time. . . . with Brygidas ideas for restaurants and trips full of unique moments.
