We stayed in a double bed standard ac room here. Pros: very pleasant view of the lawn and sea further off. A balcony to relax n watch the view. Room and bathroom were clean. Decent check in. Cons: Pretty basic room..no full mirror, no cupboards (just a couple of cloth hangers), no tv. Located at mid cliff..so quite a walk... More

The resort itself is very nice at Clafouti, however we thought that the room was a little overpriced. At first glance the room looked clean but unfortunately we didn't have a very restful stay. We had a non AC room and found that the fan was very noisy, and also there were ants all over our beds. However I have... More

Lakshmi has a small beauty treatment room at the back of the Clafouti restaurant. You will forgive the slight dirty surroundings for the excellent quality of her treatments. I visited her several times during my stay in Varkala, as she is such a lovely person and her service is genuinely caring. She can also arrange treatments at her home in... More

We had booked garden view room but was not provided, instead was given a room with no view at all. Room was neat and clean with AC but basic amenities like almirah, mirror, bucket in... More

Amazing Location and good property, but if you do not manage it well or treat your staff well, these are not gonna pay comfort to the travellers or customers. We had a very bad experience. We friends had booked 2 cottages to celebrate one of the friends birthday and they had given booking confirmation through sms. We were reaching from... More

Very comfortable rooms with a view of the ocean. Friendly staff. The restaurant prepares the fish awesomely. Sit out on the roof and enjoy a feast of fresh fish. Max helped us decide how we wanted each piece of seafood was cooked, his recommendations were perfect. The location is excellent, a 5 or 10 minute walk to the main beach... More

The name and the place is exotic but the rooms r Spartan...the delux villa was not worth 6000 rs, no tv, no light above the dresser, no fridge,.... Just the most basic amenities... The bathroom was clean but no toiletries like shampoo etc, just a bar of soap... The massage at the spa was a total waste, though the staff... More

The resort is one of the best on the North Cliff located bang infront of the beach. Almost 50% of the rooms have direct view of the beach (especially the Standard AC rooms). But alas most of these rooms dont have two basic amenities - Cupboards and Television. Ofcourse no one goes to Varkala for watching TV, but its a... More
