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

We travelled by train from Kottyam, taxi to helipad and the owner met us and we walked a few yards to Arabian Soul. This is a lovely place, set back with a garden, and our room on the top floor had fantastic views overlooking the Arabian Sea. We had a verandah where we could sit out and it was really... More

I had stayed at a couple of other places in Varkala before, but Arabian Soul felt like my home away from home . As soon as you walk through the gate into the garden it feels like you are stepping into an oasis of tranquillity, yet only being steps away from the cliff and beach access. I had the top... More

We, a little family, travelled three weeks through Kerala. We were staying in different accommodations, even in luxury. Ten days in Varkala, staying in B&B Arabian Soul, we all loved best. Brygida created an authentic place and knows the individual preferences of her guests exactly. She and her lovely staff had given us a feeling of staying home away from... More

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
