A pretty garden with a pond and some large goldfish, provides some lovely daily cut flowers in the rooms. The verandas make quiet and private places to sit and Ajay is informative and worldly. Indian breakfast is delicious

I stayed in Villa Jacaranda short time ago. I was impressed by the beauty and stillness in the middle of an amazing garden right in paradise. Each of the 5 rooms is differently equipped with unique decoration. The owner himself cares individually for each traveller and makes eveything possible. Every morning you can enjoy a huge breakfast on the terrace... More

We spent 2 nights in room number 2 and were delighted by the experience: very quiet place, yet 2 minutes from the beach, discreet yet available staff, and excellent breakfast. And if you want to practice yoga, try the rooftop of soul&surf right across the street!

Thanks to all the staff at Villa Jacaranda for making our stay so memorable. It is an absolutely beautiful building with lovely terraces all around looking over a well maintained garden. Really liked the room (very clean) and bathroom. Staff were incredibly attentive. I would highly recommend a stay there - if you want 5* bling don't bother, but if... More

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
