We reached Clafouti after a long drive but as we reached the place at 11pm in the night it gave us a nice feeling when we reached. The sea view from the cliff top at 11pm in the night was spectacular. We stayed at this place for 2 nights. What we remember the most is the amazing restaurant managed by... More

We stayed in Varkala for 10 days and ate in many of the restaurants on the clifftop. This was by far the best. The friendliest, most helpful staff, the cheapest food and the best cooking. Between the four of us we tried many different things on the menu from western to Indian to Tibetan and it was all excellent. If... More

The resort is pretty good and awesome place to stay. I and my husband visited this place 2 times. we were excited with the experience. The Seashore, restaurants and Tibetan shops are good enough to attract both domestic and foreign tourists. Even though we are from Kerala we could not believe that we were staying in a tourist place in... More

Stayed for three nights. The sea facing Vintage Villa was very comfortable and the view just breath taking. Though the price was a bit high for the place, the view was worth it.Room Service was non existent. But did not matter. The attached restaurant had everything needed.

We, 8 members, stayed there for two nights. The resort was well maintained and 15 minutes walk from the North Cliff. The rooms were very simple, like no wardrobe, no television, no tables but just a large bed and two plastic chairs. So ideally the thought is to take rest and spend time with each other. All our four rooms... More

Got nice restaurant. Nirvana yoga also helped to find great peace of mind. Overall was a fantastic experience.

The resort is at a great location. You will get an amazing view from the room. No swimming pool :/ . The staff is prompt and the restaurant offers a great ambience. I took a sea facing AC room. The room was spacious. It has a big window facing the sea. The sleep quality was great and everything was clean... More
