Naveen, our host, was excellent, helping us plan our onward joinery and arranging a great dawn backwaters trip for us and others from the guest house. Would highly recommend this place to anyone considering visiting... More

I love to stay at Arabian Soul when in varkala. Usually you would not expect the first guesthouse on the tourist mile to be a good choice, but this one is. It is on the main cliff tourist strip, but tucked a bit back and with a beautiful garden so you do not notice the commotion of the street. There... More

You know you have found a piece of heaven when the though of leaving is pure hell.  I genuinely cannot say enough wonderful things about Arabian soul.  The incredible vibe, energy and warmth the owner has created gives it that welcoming homely feel and it isnt any wonder why so many people keep returning.  I booked it after many recommendations...
