I don't know if I will be able to finish this review in fewer than 200 characters. I guess this should sum up what I thought of Sea Pearl Chalets in Varkala. The location, as I have mentioned in the title of my review, is the only strength of this place. Everything else is--please, I don't want to use expletives.... More

Awful. Filthy rooms, no breakfast, no air. Just horrible. Lovely location but in general it was horrible. Holes all around the rooms so anything could climb in. No space and only 1 electric facility available. Really dark as well. Staff lovely and view lovely but the upkeep is a shambles. Plus we were well over charged for the stay and... More

The sea pearl chalets have a great location and view but the huts are super simple with no A/C which is challenging given the hot and humid weather. It got quite sticky at night as they are very small and you can't keep the windows open. The nicest part was to sit outside early morning and watch the ocean. Overall... More

It has minimal rooms but a flexible and good staff. It has the best view of any place in Varkala. The rooms are non-AC which is fine during tourist season in India (Dec-Jan). They usually serve a simple but cheap breakfast. It's all the way on the end of the cliff but not a bad walk and bit more secluded.... More

Unique location on edge of south cliff. Paid Rs.2000pn between christmas and new year. Reasonable value given time and everything worked. Friendly. Perhaps because I booked months before they gave me Hut No.3, which is about the best located. No aircon however windows open and good breeze. One day No.3 will likely disappear over the cliff so avoid it in... More

Stayed here for two nights in April. No air conditioning but great ocean breezes. Very compact rooms but clean, and being able to sit outside and watch the ocean roll in was great. Helpful in arranging a tuk tuk for a very early train.

We were one of two couples at the chalets. The second night we had the place to ourselves. We loved its relatively isolated location...and the mongoose that flitted away after checking us out several times.Mosquito nets were provided and they were needed. The chalet was clean with a fan. We were given extra towels and soap to wash our hair/clothes... More

We stayed for two days in February. The rooms are pleasant, clean, and just what you need. Didn't meet the owner, but we were exploring most of the time anyway. A fair walk along the beach from North Cliff, where much more happens. Also was rather noisy in the mornings!

A small collection of chalets on top of the cliff away from the main 'drag', beautiful view from the cliff tops down to the sea/beach. Short walk from the beach (a few minutes from beach and restaurants). The owner Shiv was helpful and sorted us out taxis to get to our next accommodation. Chalets were small but comfortable, outside furniture... More

I was at Sea Pearl in the middle of December and really enjoyed my stay there. The owner is a very friendly person who gave me some good advices for the area. If you prefer partymaking you should better go to North Cliff, Sea Pearl is a quiet and secure place where you can relax in the evening/morning sun just... More
