SHIVA GARDEN is one among the most reputed home stays in Varkala. Perched near a majestic red cliff overlooking the Arabian Sea, this charming home stay offers many warm hospitable services as well as a More fantastic garden view. Here we have a magnificent garden growing many famous Ayurvedic plants and trees, surrounding the resort.
