Spent one week in Clafouti resort. Great view of Arabian sea because its very close to the cliff into the sea, well maintained cottages , excellent food and good service. Enjoyed staying there. Got nice restaurant. Nirvana yoga also helped to find great peace of mind. Overall was a fantastic experience.

The room was spacious. It has a big window facing the sea. The sleep quality was great and everything was clean... More

Clafouti is an eyesore on the otherwise picturesque Varkala cliff- the management is irresponsible and greedy. Shortly after I made my booking through booking.com I was approached by their manager ( Mr Vishnu) he pleaded with me to cancel my booking through the website and book through him directly saying he would upgrade our villa to the honeymoon cottage And...

an excellent hotel to stay with amazingly cooked food with the restaurant right next to the rooms. Very helpful staff. The view from our room was befuddling. Rooms are spacious enough and cleaned. The restaurant provides amazing food. Alcohol is prohibited on the cliff premises. Though you can ask for beers in big porcelain cups ;) ;). I would recommend... More

Clafouti is the hotel on the front line of the Cliff, so all shops and restaurants are near. Hotel territory is nice and green. Rooms have big windows with mirror coating. Even on the ground floor during the daytime you are able to live with blinds open and don't mind if anyone sees you. Room interior is minimalistic; standard rooms... More
