We went to Varkala in the off season, so it wasn't at it's most inviting. Mom Lekha's was a lovely place to stay. Very helpful staff. The room was a little musty - but everything is in the monsoon! Really convenient to the beach, and a gorgeous balcony. No restaurant though, and in the "off" season, so much was closed, so meals were a little tricky.

Visiting Varkala recently, I wanted the whole experience of natural healing by the beach. Just a block from the Ayurvedic center and 10 seconds to the beach, I found this private stay. From the second I walked in, I felt right at home. Such a peaceful environment. The rooms were well kept with a modern feel. Wi-fi inside the room and on the outside balcony overlooking the beach was an added bonus. I spent a lot of my free time on the outside balcony and on the top floor looking in amazement at the beautiful views. I cannot emphasize how supportive the staff there was. They went above and beyond their parameters to cater to my needs and I appreciate everything they did for me. Next time I'm in Varkala, I will return here.

very clean room + free wifi + very supporting staff, you have your own privacy and its not expensive. Most important its near to beach. Will love to go again! we paid Approx rs 1000 for single night,which is worth it. When you always take walk or swim in the ocean which is just 100 yards away.

Room Tip: First floor rooms have sea view, its better to take corner rooms

Very nice personal, beautiful rooms and absolutely hygienic. It is the second time that i visit because its directly at the beach. And for that price also very reasonable. I will come always to that plays i have been to a few other places but they were that nice in that area!

Located between the north and the south cliff just few meters away from the beach, Mom Lekhas became my little paradise for one month. Nice, quiet, clean rooms with the atmosphere and intimacy of an Indian house. As you enter you can listen to beautiful traditional music and if you feel like you can borrow a yoga or a philosophy book from their library.
But nothing compares to the rooftop where you can enjoy the beautiful sunrise as the day starts by watching the priests making their rituals on the beach! Thank you all in Mom Lekhas!
