Clafouti Beach Resort
Ranked #24 of 52 Hotels in Varkala
Reviewed December 1, 2012

With it's central north cliff location adjacent to restaurants and shopping and ocean views Clafouti surely has one of the best locations to enjoy Varkala beach. There are a range of accommodation types with cottages, hotel section and lower priced rooms at the rear. This was my third trip to Varkala and I have stayed at several hotels and guest houses. For the medium range price, Clafouti is very good. The restaurant is rebuilt and good quality food but still with very low prices (by western standards). Staff was friendly and always helpful. I hope to stay there again and recommend it.

Stayed for 8 days and we were looked after amazingly well. Huts toward the cliff probably the winners. They all come with a good sized veranda, clean bathroom and large bed. Cleaned on demand!

Staff helpful. And my wife highly recimmends Lakshmi beauty studio which is part of the set up.

Perfect, thanks guys!

First appearences show beautiful traditional Keralan huts right on the seafront. In reality, the rooms are badly lit and extremely damp. The bathrooms are a nightmare and they were building a restaurant when we were there so construction all around us for 3 days. The manager was unhelpful and rude and there was no internet or eating facility as promised. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone, there are FAR better places on the cliff
