I stayed at Mummy Bamboo with my partner for over 2 weeks in April. We arrived in the middle of a torrential storm, and my partner had just slipped a disk in his back. There was a power cut but Mummy still offered a lift to the hospital or the local ayurveadic back specialist. If you choose to eat there,... More

We had only planned on three nights in Varkala but decided to stay longer.Found Mummy Bamboo just off the main drag on North Cliff. Excellent value no frills accommodation in convenient location. Also arrange taxis etc. All other services by arrangement as well. Use pools at nearby hotels for reasonable daily fees.

I stayed over a week. Rani is a wonderful cook and all her family is very kind. The rooms are clean, pretty and located right next to the path down to the beach. I really enjoyed the quiet of the place to relax and chill.

This was our second visit to this homestay after a break of two years. rani still has the warmest welcome and loveliest smile. The rooms are clean and well kept and the food was lovely. The mattresses have been upgraded and are comfortable. Nothing is too much problem and we will be coming back again.

We moved to this hotel after spending one night at another hotel which we really didn't like (hill top ayurvedic beach resort). The woman who manages the rooms, Bany, is very charming and helpful. She also has a kitchen and can cook homemade food if you want, which is much better and cheaper than the food served at the restaurants... More
