This hotel is in Varkala, which is a mixed experience in itself, but this hotel is a gem.
Style: minimalist yet reasonably sizeable hotel, with decent facilities, hammocks and the sound of the sea. Friendly and helpful staff who happily changed our room and provided mosquito nets on request. Really liked the lack of focus on new age/ hippy/ "spiritual" type things.
Location: just off the cliffs in Varkala - which gives it a great location, as it's quiet and away from the main part. A very quick walk up to the cliffs past the amazingly violent sea crashing into the rocks.
Cleanliness: extremely clean, with room cleaned daily, fresh towels and clean bathroom.
Rooms: we changed our room easily to get a better mosquito net and more space. Not a lot of storage, but rooms are spacious and quiet with incredibly comfortable beds that we loved sleeping in. Lots of outside space. Tons of hot water from the great shower.
Facilities: we didn't use the restaurant, but the hotel provided us with bottled water and arranged for an autorickshaw to take us to the train station. They also happily extended our stay by one night on request. All the staff were extremely helpful and friendly, whilst discreet. Internet was available.
Overall: definitely my first choice for any return to Varkala.More
