“Kerala Bamboo House”
Reviewed November 28, 2010

Kerala Bamboo House was one of the nicest stay that we had during our travels in India. Huts are very nice, cosy and clean. It is just next to the other hotels and restaurants. Staff is nice, but their tourist agency is definitely not you cheapest option, especially if you want to book a cab is better to do it directly with a taxi driver.

These huts are charming, fairly basic but nicely decorated and a very cool place to stay. There is no hot water but that wasn't too bad given that it was so hot when we arrived.

We forgot to close our shutters when we went out in the evening and came back to a couple of geckos and a HUGE black spider on our wall.... fortunately the security guard came to help us out or there would be no way I could sleep there. The bed was comfortable and I enjoyed my stay in any event.

The owner was very friendly, helpful and accommodating and I would recommend it for the value especially.

Kerala Bamboo House has been one of our best choice during our trip in South India last year. Pretty, spacious and comfortable bungalows with large bath for only 600 rupies (on October, low season). It is peaceful and you can relax yourself sitting out the hut, in your own patio. There is a wonderful garden and it is quite near beach. Colorful and pitoresque, it is perfect if you wish something of diffent from the usual hotels. Excellent service, staff is kind and helpful. In five minutes they arranged for our flight from Kochi to Bombay, our house-boat trip in Aleppy and find a good driver to Aleppy at a very low price; they did not push us to book excursions but simply satisfied our requests in a very professional way.
They had no restaurant service but they granted us a discount for the near Kerala Coffee House, where we had the best Kerala breakfast of our trip and super dinner.
It is a great place to stay and I would recomand it to all my friends!
If you intend to spend some days in a seaside place, Varkala is the best one and Kerala Bamboo House is a magnificent solution.

I stayed here when i was traveling around India last autumn. I was very impressed by the value of the huts (aprox £7 p/n.) The location was perfect, right on the cliff top with resturants metres away. Quiet location with a small garden in front of the huts with lovely hamoks to chill out in the sun. I felt very safe in the hut alone and would recomend it as a great place to stay! :-)
