We stayed with a friend In agust. The room we booked wasn t available so they made us sleep In a wet and not so clean bungalow. They made us pay the dinner almost 4 Time the prices we payed In the neighbourhood. (furthermore the Rice and fish were overcooked)

We planned on staying 10 days and stayed over 2 weeks at pink aana. The staff of Alex, Dileep, and the others were kind, friendly and always open to questions. Every morning we were greeted with smiles, pots of tea and delicious fruit salads. Every evening we were asked if we would like to have supper made for us or... More

Pros: Hearing the crashing waves while you sleep, a hammock on your porch, cute little puppies on the property, gracious & kind hosts, clean and affordable, AMAZING dinner - the best i've had so far in Kerala. Super good food in an amazing atmosphere. Cons: very, very hot. no breeze at all in the room - we were perpetually sweating.... More

Listening to crashing waves in bed, amazing breakfasts appearing just when you want them,beautiful feasts at dinner time (the prawn masala and fish a higlight), friendly and fun staff and an escape from the general hustle and bustle made our stay in Pink Aana one of the highlights of our trip!! When we arrived at pink Aana we were a... More

Ok, so the room tariffs are not the cheapest. And there aren't beachboys hassling single white women at every corner. There are no ayurvedic treatments within two minutes walk (ten mins, yes). And no handicraft shops within 500 metres. The beach has an inclusive policy with fishermen, unhassled bikini-clad tourists, and dogs sharing the sand; unlike Varkala's lifeguard-enforced Indian-Tourist segregation.... More

Let's begin by saying that the actual spot is beautiful and with a small effort Pink Aana could be wonderful. We stayed in the bungalow furthest from the beach since we are a family of four and it's the only one with room with two big beds. It was very basic and the bathroom was just cut into bare rock...

The place is constantly overbooked. Even a confirmed reservation by the owner himself doesn't change that fact. The consequence is that you have to spend your holiday in a concrete prison cell-like building away from the beach. There are a few alternatives on the same beach that you could give a try.

My mother (50s) and I (20s) spent three nights here in October 2011. Pink Aana is a quiet group of beach bungalows a bit north of Varkala. It was great to be able to walk up to Varkala (10 minutes) along the cliffs, enjoy the hustle and bustle and the shops, and then retire to the peace of quiet of... More

Totally agree with previous reviews. This place has nice huts overlooking the beach, set in a nice flowery garden.  The 4 huts have verandas with a hammock, but that is the only shade around, the nice garden is in full sun all day, unfortunately. The staff are nice, however we had a bad experience with the whole booking process which... More
