First things first: Rafiq, the owner is an absolutely lovely person, always greeted with a big, warm, welcoming smile. And the name - Mektoub (meaning fate) - says everything. It was true fate that we found this place in Varkala. After traveling in India for 5 weeks, this place was by far the best place we stayed in for a reasonable price. Just 3 km or a 15 min walk away from lively Varkala Beach, here you have the chance to relax and find yourself. The Bungalows built out of the same bricks the local fisherman use to build their own houses, the place fits perfectly in its surrounding. Having no boundaries around this little resort really gives you the feeling you are not trapped in a resort but part of the landscape. We would definitely recommend you stay here.
Thanks for everything Rafiq, Judith and Elliot
