This was our first stop in India, and our first ever visit to the country, so arriving in the middle of the night to what seemed quite a basic room was a little unnerving. There was no proper reception as this is a bit more like a homestay than a hotel, but come the morning when we opened the door... More

At first glance this place seems modest for the price, but soon you realise it's a real gem: the gardens are beautiful, and the place is full of art objects and flowers. The welcome from Ajay and his staff was warm and helpful but not intrusive. And we thought the location was ideal for Varkala - the quieter South Cliff,... More

After a strenuous trip in the north, it was a relief to arrive at the Villa Jacaranda (south cliff) and be greeted by Ajay and his staff. We stayed in room 4 - the top floor with a terrace as others have described. This is a wonderful, serene, almost Zen-like place to recharge one's batteries. We had help and company... More

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
