I was feeling pretty overwhelmed with India when I stumbled across Naveen, the boys, and the Arabian soul guesthouse. We we're actually staying somewhere else and it was a happy accident that we saw this place. Awesome location. Views of the beach. Coffee Temple next door. The best thing about this place though, is the feeling of community. You get...

I was planning on staying only two nights but ended up staying a week! Naveen is the perfect host, he took all the guests to the cinema and for lunch in town and helped me book my train ticket. The room was super clean and great value for the price! Just the best place to meet people and chill, awesome...

I stayed at the Arabian soul hotel twice in the same month, I liked it so much I went back at the end of my trip. I felt very welcomed when I arrived, and completely looked after during my stay. Naveen is the most amazing host and even made sure I didn't miss my taxi to the airport at the...

Arabian Soul is quite frankly on the top of my list as a hotel that offers a comfortable atmosphere, welcoming energy, and relaxed vibe to pass the days away in Varkala! I stayed for 5 nights, and consistently felt taken care of by the owner Naveen and welcomed day after day. Naveen always went out of his way to make...

My wife and I stayed at Arabian Soul for only three nights, but we had a wonderful time. The location is excellent (near the Coffee Temple!) and the view was fantastic, but Naveen's graciousness and hospitality was really the key to our happiness. I can't imagine a more helpful host. Five stars for Naveen!

I arrived in Varkala having pre-booked a place to stay. However, on arrival that place was dirty and tiny and nothing like the photos etc. Luckily someone recommended Arabian Soul! I had the best time here and what was meant to be a one week stop turned into 23 nights! Naveen the owner is awesome and really went out of...

After four weeks of travelling my last stop in India was Varkala and Arabic Soul. Very positive and chillllllllll vibes. The hefe Navin was cool and very helpful. Rooms are nice and clean and the second floor hangout area was very nice. The rooftop was very nice place to watch full moon and do yoga.
