I wanted some peaceful time for myself and Maadathil came to my rescue. I stayed for two nights and had a wonderful time. The place was away from Varkala beach which was even better for me because I wanted to be away from the crowd. I got a cottage of my own which also had a kitchen space and a... More

While I was there with my close friends I was certain that I would have a good time. These two brothers made it memorable!! This place is family owned and the owners are so enterprising and sweet that they ensure you don't have anything to worry about and you focus doing only two things - enjoy or relax! Beautiful place,... More

We stayed 3 nights here- it is located a little outside of the main area right on the coast and there are a couple of adjacent resorts so you don't feel isolated. You have your own cottage (of perhaps 10 in total) which has a deck and is cleaned daily. It was a reasonable size with a mini fridge and... More

We loved our stay at Maadathil Cottages. The rooms were beautifully decorated, spacious, clean, comfortable and in a beautiful setting among the palm trees on a small beach.

The essence of this spectacular destination lies in the family. Muhajir, his brother Mohamed, the uncles, cousins and others who comprise the hotel and kitchen staff of the gorgeous cottages (with perfect A/C and Wifi) along the black beaches of Odayam and Varkala are the reason to visit. And in my case, very sad to leave. The Varkala Cliffside is... More

The location is quiet and tranquil, far away from the touristy area of Varkala beach, but close enough to walk. There is also a lovely black sand beach right at the cottages where you can swim and...
