A perfect hideaway resort south of the maddening crowds of Varkala cliff. Managed by a local and his two brothers, the cottages under palm trees are very well maintained, tidy and spacious. Service is top, very helpful and attentive staff. Location is really wonderful, directly at the sea, high palm trees above and a lake covered by lotus flowers in... More

Excellent place for peaceful relaxation, probably the best in the vicinity of Varkala beaches. Though you don't directly overlook the sea from the cottages, you could hear the sound of the sea. Run by three young and enterprising brothers who are keen to provide good service and don't seem to commercially exploit as they own this place.

The room was clean and the location excellent, as well away from the busy areas of Varkala clifftop. Amenities were adequate, theres a decent restaurant and hammocks by the beach. A little pricy for my budget style but location and comfort make up for this.

Dream place to stay. Beautiful location by the Arabian sea with palms and sunsets, and a small quiet beach. Good food and great cottages with verandas. But the most amazing thing was the staff - great people and always available. What an experience!
