Good place specially for couples. The resort is situated very close to beach. It is just on two minutes walking distance from the beach. Food is not available inside the hotel. Recommended for couples.

We only chose to stay at Bamboo cottages as they were offering low season prices (750 rupes per night). During the high season when they double the rate (or more) you should shop around for somewhere a little more luxurious. We travelled the length of Varkala North Cliffs looking in all the cliff-side (and further back) hotels and determined that... More

Nice place, very quiet but there are a lot of "little" things that could be improved to make it more comfortable. We only payed 600 rupies/night for both of us for the more basic room (without AC, but it was cold at night), so it wasn't bad at all and we where coming from worse places for more or less... More

Fell in love with the look of this place. Very much like other places we've enjoyed in Asia. But after one night we had to move - the beds are just awful! It's not the cheapest place and there's plenty of alternatives on the cliff. If only they'd spend a little on the interiors it would be a little jem!

I disliked this hotel. The idea of staying four nights in an eco friendly place with an amazing garden and pond sounded like a great idea when we chose it! This is without counting on high prices, noisy neighbours, not insulated bungalows (too hot even with the fan on), dirty mosquito net and bathroom oh... and creepy-crawlies... So I left,... More

Two friends and myself enjoyed our 6 night stay here. Great location, quiet, and charming. The huts are surrounded by beautiful gardens. The interior of our room was simple. The property has different sizes of huts, some being nicer than others. The beds were hard, but we managed to adapt because we liked the place so much! Friendly helpful staff,... More

Varkala was our first stop in the south after West Bengal & Assam. Travelled with a small group of 7. We all had cottages close to the beach access. Our group's organizer has sent other groups to the Kerala Bamboo House, so our rate may have been slightly better than others at 2000 rupees a night. As we had been... More

We moved to Bamboo house after our horrible experience at Clafouti house. We took a hut with an open air bathroom and absolutely loved it! For 2500 rupees it was well priced for the season and others that are on offer. Our hut had all the little things that make it comfortable, a mosquito net, a mirror, a vanity in... More
