We had a very pleasant stay as a couple for two nights in January. Even though the weather was very hot, we were comfortable in a nonAC room with a fan and mosquito net for 1000. I think they have rooms from 800 to 1000 and this is very good value for accommodation ON the cliff front as opposed to... More

So close to everything and yet a magical serene place to stay. It's right beside the helipad where you arrive, next door is the best cafe on the cliff and the beach is just a few steps from the gate. The rooms are clean with comfortable beds and lots of nice touches. But the nicest thing is the garden with... More

Great budget option near the helipad on cliffs at Varkala. Basic but clean room with fan only and mosquito net. Some nice common areas to sit in the garden or on the balcony outside. Naveen the owner was one of the nicest guys we met in India and has created a warm and relaxed place to stay. You are also... More

Arabian Soul was recommended to us by friends we made on the road and we were not disappointed! It's a place with a good vibe and Naveen is an extremely attentive host. While caring for all our needs he was open to discussing his own thoughts and views with us, which was really great and made this one feel like... More

We had a great time at Arabian Soul. Naveen was the consummate host, ensuring our needs were met and providing advice and services as and when we needed them. We had an AC room but the other guests didn't find the heat to be bothersome. The rooms are pleasant, clean and quirkily decorated, the atmosphere is sociable with several social... More

Clean and simple, nice and quiet and safe place in good location. Is a 20 meter from North Cliff, next to a nice restaurantes and little shop. Nice garden and good wifi connection. Naveen, the owner, is always very aware.

This is a great place!!! Clean, comfortable, lovely furnished, and feels like home! The owner Navin is a very nice helpful guy! It's very central located (beautiful view of the sea) but still quiet and private! There is filtered water , clean towels and the room is cleaned daily. I would recommend it for any type of traveler !!
