We had booked for 4 days and we finally stayed 3 weeks!!! Ashiyana became like our "home" and this because of the beautiful people working there. The place is cosy, well situated (3mins from the cliff but yet remains in a calm and green area) The rooms are pretty, super clean, spacious with the most comfortable beds I every slept in in india! The owner Bilal is so helpful, friendly and makes your stay just great and Vicky always smiling and there for you. I can only highly recommend the place. Thank you!!! We will be back xxx

Room Tip: All rooms are spacious, beautiful and clean with super comfortable beds

My friend and I originally planned to stay for 4 nights at Ashiyana, but we loved Varkala so much and felt so comfortable in our accommodation, that we ended up staying for six nights. From the moment we arrived at Ashiyana, we were very impressed by the hospitality and friendliness of the owners. The rooms are beautifully decorated and felt wonderfully luxurious compared with other places we'd stayed before. I stayed in the more budget-conscious 'cottage' - but this room was spacious with a huge comfy bed and large bathroom. I didn't opt for a/c but it was available at extra cost. While Ashiyana is away from the main strip, the shops, restaurants and beach are just 2 mins walk away and so it is a great location. There is a lovely seating area where there is free wifi, although we found it very slow.

This was a lovely place to finish off our 6 week trip in India. It's about a 2-3 minute walk from the shopping strip by the cliff overlooking the beach. The rooms were spacious, tastefully decorated with a very comfortable bed and clean bathroom, had a good Air Conditioner and even a small balcony. The pressure in the shower was great (especially after some of the showers we'd experienced in India)! There's an open courtyard just outside of the rooms which is a nice place to relax after a long day at the beach.

During our stay we met two of the owners, Arshid and Tariq, who are both very informative, keen to help, and a couple of the nicest people we met in India. Upon arrival Arshid gave us some time to freshen up before walking us to the beach area and showing us some of his favourite spots in town. He then sat down with us and organised numerous day trips around Kerala and set us up with a very reliable and friendly driver. On one of the days Tariq even drove us to the railway station at 5:30am in his uncle's car when our tuk-tuk failed to arrive!

Vicky, who was one of the staff at the hotel, was also super friendly and always smiling. He cooked us a fantastic breakfast everyday and never failed to ask how our day was.

The hotel is still new and undergoing renovations which means that it can only get better!

This was a really lovely and relaxing place to stay. We were staying in one of the low-budget rooms, but we were still very happy with our room that gave us great comfort. The staff was really friendly and cool, I had a lovely time here.
