We really enjoyed our time here! The road to the location may seem as a deterrent, but it is exactly what makes this place unique. The staff is what makes this place. The brothers who own the place are always interacting with the guest ensuring things are suitable. Some pointers for people visiting; have a measured expectation of being on... More

We were planning to stay a couple of nights and move on but once we arrived we decided to stay for a week and not go anywhere else. This was the best decision we made, a place that is heaven on earth north of varkala beach. The place has 10 spacious comfortable and clean cottages with shaded balconies that give... More

We stayed at Maadathil Cottages in January 2016 and I can say without doubt it was one of the loveliest place we have ever stayed. In fact we meant to stay there only 3 nights but we just couldn't leave! The website doesn't really do it justice. We were looking for somewhere quiet. The cottages are far enough away from... More

Just the kind of place I love. The sound of the waves at night. A beautiful view of the sea in front of our cottage and a lotus pond behind. Total peace and tranquility except for the shouts of the fishermen in the morning hauling up their nets! But hey, that's not so early and you know you have fresh... More

It's a beautiful property set on a beautiful beach. It's not like a commercial hotel where every inch is developed. They have a front open which leads to the beach.

We had a lovely time staying at Maadthil. The cottages were clean, comfortable and tastefully done. The staff was warm, friendly and helpful. We loved their take on the local cuisine and ate at the restaurant most days. The beach was clean, quiet and gorgeous. On an average day, we would see fewer than 20 people on the beach, which...

This is a very clean and quiet place 10 minutes walk from the Varkala north cliff. The people there are so friendly and helpful it's extraordinary😊The food is good, we had a marvellous Christmas dinner there. They have their own small and quiet beach.
