Arabian Soul is one of our favorite places during the trip! My boyfriend and I walked along the entire cliff to find the best place and our hearts settled on Arabian Soul as soon as we saw the room. The owner was very kind and helpful! My boyfriend got a very bad sunburn so we had to extend our stay... More

Thank you Naveen, the kindest and most helpful host you can ask for. Arabian Soul is one of those places that is really hard to leave. The place has a great vibe, surrounded by lots of greenery and there are two lovely balconies where you can hang out with other travellers and watch the days melt away. There are different... More

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!

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
