Reviewed January 5, 2011

My 17 year old and I stayed 5 nights at Kaiya House and found it to be the perfect place for us. More like a home than a hotel. We were well taken care of by owners Debra and Sadosh. The location was good, not right in the middle of the tourist bustle on the north cliff but only a 10 minute walk to there and the beach. Also we could walk to the other end of the beach from Kaiya and see the 2,000 year old temple and the interesting activities and rituals at the beach. Kaiya also happens to be right next door to an ayervedic centre for massage etc. We had a great time there and would definitely recommend it.

lots of gorgeous luxurious touches (posh sheets, impeccable cleanliness, and style) and a wonderful atmosphere. Debra's care, concern, warmth, and attention to detail makes it more like a visit to a glamorous older sister. Each room is decorated in a different style using the antiques collected by Debra during her travels (an English room, a Japanese room, an Indian room etc) - nothing is too much trouble and Debra really is the perfect host.

We stayed at Kaiya House for 4 days. It was a lovely stay with a home away from home feel. Debra runs this place and is an amazing hostess who is on her toes to ensure that you walk away with the best experience ever. Good, healthy home made food along with special tips from Debra to make the most of your stay. Kaiya House is A 10 minute walk from the North cliff Varkala.
I look forward to returning to Kaiya House.
