Our three night stay at Villa Jacaranda was idyllic. We were lucky to get the top room with the lovely balcony, felt like a peaceful haven with beautiful flowers and plants. The breakfast was delicious, I highly recommend the Indian breakfast. We also ate in one night and the food was really fresh and healthy. Ajay's ethical and environmental principles... More

Stressful, unprofessional, poor service and nowhere near value for money (especially in Monsoon season and without anyone in charge). We arrived to find an unclean room / terrace and a very basic room without mosquito netting for the room. The bed felt very uncomfortable. They also were not aware our child was with us - no bed for her -... More

The most charming, tasteful, elegant, warm, stylish hotel in all of South India. A true gem! You won't find better. The staff is very warm and sensitive to guests' needs. My husband and I prefer to be babied when on holiday, and we were, but another couple that was more adventurous wanted to have surf trips and things like that... More

My girlfriend and I (London, late 20s early 30s) stayed here on our final three night after travelling round Kerala for 2 weeks. We'd stayed in lots of home stays and a beach houses. This was by far the best place we stayed. Beautiful rooms, amazing decor, unbelievably helpful staff and possibly the best food of the trip, worthy of... More

A very nice guesthouse a bit out of the packed and freaky North Hill but still close to the beach, another vision of Varkala, more quiet. Everything in the decoration is thought and refined, the breakfast is fantastic (that amazing fruit salad!), people are kind and helpful. We had the room with the big terrace on the roof, with colourful... More

Me and my girlfriend just visited Ajay and his beautiful Jacaranda. We actually stayed there twice, since we were so happy with the stay, that we returned. And when not staying with Ajay he helped arrange a stay at his wonderful sisters place. Where to start....Ajay is a wonderful host with an explicit sense of decorating in a natural but... More

I stayed at Villa Jacaranda for two days in March, if you are considering booking a room at Villa Jacaranda, definitely do it! You will not be disappointed, Ajay and his staff are welcoming, hospital and knowledgeable about the area. We stayed in room 2, breakfast on the room's private balcony was a highlight. Ajay made excellent recommendations for the... More

Our second visit to Villa Jacaranda and just as good as the first time. Very peaceful and relaxing and our lovely host Ajay was always on hand for a chat and information about the area. So nice to sit out on private balcony (room 2) overlooking the garden and out to sea with breakfast. The staff are very friendly and... More

.. this really says it all. It's a haven of peace, style, tranquillity, somewhere you can really, truly unwind and feel at home, in the beautiful surrounds of Varkala's South Cliff. Elegant décor, low key, care and attention taken on every detail, discreet yet friendly staff who look after you just as you wish, nice touches on a daily basis... More
