Chose a very clean non-AC double at the rear of the property with an amazingly comfortable bed, wood-framed mozzie net, hot and cold water plus towels. Windows are secured and can be left open to allow the... More

We stayed here for 5 nights at the beginning of our trip to India. Varkala was the one place on our itinerary that we have been to before and we returned because its one of our favourite places in the world! The beach is fabulous and the actual town is small and friendly. Keratheeram is in a great location, half... More

This is a great guest house with the complete bonus of having a highly renowned meditation teacher teach a class every morning from 8am-8.30am during the tourist season. It's my third year coming to Keratheeram and have been delighted the last two years to be able to get up each morning and practice on the roof with a meditation teacher... More

This accommodation is located very close to the cliff top and beach yet away from the hustle and bustle. Our room was beautifully clean with an enormous comfortable bed. It is excellent value for money and I highly recommend it. Would definitely stay again.

Very nice and clean hotel. 100% recommended.If you want a great budget place to stay, this is it. Look no further. Its right in the middle of the cliff. Perfect place for family or otherwise. Crowd is also international. I will visit Varkala again and will stay here only.

Hosts were excellent and helpful in every possible way. I was even taken on the back of the bike t the ATM which is some distance away as on the cliffs you can get money as cash advance but for a fee, We had an air con room which was adequate. More suited to backpackers I would say. I wish... More

This is a little gem, very clean and comfortable rooms with the most amazing hosts who go above and beyond to ensure your stay is as perfect as ever. We stayed in a fan cooled room which was good temperature wise, had mosquito nets around bed and clean linen. Bathroom has cold showers but it's not ice cold and it... More

We travelled as a group of 5 and stayed in the 2 new ac cottages. They were clean and bright and very spacious with a fridge,... More

We booked a double room in the main guest house but were upgraded to one of the massive cottages, at no extra cost. The cottage was really spacious and clean, with a TV and wifi. It also had its own balcony and hammock, great for the evenings! The owners were extremely friendly and the location was ideal as well. Great... More
