The staff here were super friendly. I stayed in one of the upstairs rooms facing the sea which was open and airy. Everything was clean and there was a nice balcony with a lovely view. Green pepper restaurant is next door which has great food, sunset views and beach access..

We stayed in the beach "cottage" on the cliff. While the outside view of the ocean is nice, the accommodations are rustic, to say the least. Lots of bugs - cockroaches, spiders, ants, etc. Open windows and holes leading to the outside. There is a strong fan, which helps. Also, the house directly behind us was burning trash for several...

Laid back n peacefull environment, a break away from the usual hurryburry commercial hotels. A place to fully revive and rejuvenate your senses with all the yoga and knowledge with practical applications. Friendly and helpful staff.

Beautiful property on South Cliff with access to beach and next to Green Pepper restaurant Room was big, comfortable. The mattress the usual uncomfortable, and linens and towels should be upgraded. My towel had big holes. It looked like a rag. And yes when I requested a replacement it was immediately changed. Still the sheet on the bed don't match.... More

Since the place is leased a younger boy is running this hotel. Altough he is friendly it's not well maintained and not clean. No water from the shower. You can't choose from a menu but have to eat what is prepared. No privacy, you'll have breakfast and dinner with the owner and a friend together. Not the way you want... More

We had a fabulous time staying here. What made it special was the quiet and tranquil location coupled with our very friendly and helpful host, Dasha. We originally booked for 5 nights, but decided to stay for 3 more nights. The views from our huts were breathtaking, and the beach, shops and bars were within easy walking distance. We would...

To anyone heading to Varkala... South Cliff area is easily the best place to stay in Varkala, this place is brilliant because... There are cool little bamboo huts looking directly over the cliff. (one with a hammock outside the door). Sea views are spectacular. Quiet at night bar the sound of the ocean. Friendly family who would do anything to... More

We had a glorious week or so staying at SB Regency in February this year. This place is perfectly located on the north cliff with a stairway soon to be provided directly down to the beach (might be there already....) Stairs or no, the huts on the cliff itself are perfect to watch the sunset with a lazy Kingfisher. Amazingly... More
