The Cliff Lounge Guesthouse
Ranked #56 of 105 Varkala B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 23, 2014

I stayed here with my boyfriend for 5 nights over from end of Dec to beginning of January and it's a really ace place. Nitheesh met us at the station so it was really easy to get there, and he was really helpful when we extended our stay. Perfectly located right in the centre of Varkala, a few minutes to the beach but set back enough to have a chilled out atmosphere. Nitheesh and Julie were great, and organised us trips out of town as well as recommending great restaurants in Varkala. Delicious fruit salad for breakfast every day on their lovely terrace - would definitely stay there again next time we're in Varkala.

Very nice place with clean spacey rooms, at reasonable prices. The german indian couple running the place are helpful, and offers good service and nice recommendations.
The guesthouse lies in a little garden away from noise, and the rooms feels chill during nighttime.

Niteesh, Julie and family were such lovely, welcoming people who went out of their way to accommodate us and make our stay comfortable. Clean and tidy rooms, thoughtfully decorated with hot water and comfortable beds. Spacious balcony with views to the sea. Lovely breakfast - great pancakes and homemade papaya jam! A perfect location set just behind the Tibetan Market. A two minute walk to the beach. We had a room with balcony and sea views, would recommend one of these rooms, ideally. We will certainly return to stay with these guys on a return trip. Excellent value for money. Thank you we loved every minute x

Right in the middle of the action but quiet rooms with lovely small verandas. Clean, spacious rooms, helpful owners, lovely roof with yoga at 6pm and a really professional small ayuervedic place next door. Nice quirky furnishings. Well needed rest and good tips from the owners especially regarding the lovely walk on the North Cliff where we saw dolphins playing and water buffalos resting in a pool to avoid the heat. Special place if you can get out of the busy main drag. Very enjoyable safe place to stay.

We stayed here for a couple of nights. The room was clean and tidy. We enjoyed relaxing on the balcony. It is just a short stroll to the cliff top where all the shops and restaurants are located. Then just a fews steps down from the cliff to the beautiful beach.
Our hosts were pleasant and accomodating to our requirements. Would reccomend to friends.

We stayed here for a week to relax after a 30 day trek in Nepal. It is close to the beach, great restaurants and massage. Our hosts Julia and Nitheesh were fabulous and looked after us. The breakfasts were great especially the fresh fruit and juice in the morning. They helped us to arrange a tuck-tuck, recommended restaurants, massage and helped us to arrange the next week of our trip in Kerala. Thee yoga on the terrace was great every evening. There is nice music near by, but it is always quiet by 11pm. We would highly recommend staying here. The rooms are nice and very clean. Thanks for the great stay!

Stayed here for part of our honeymoon. Julia and Nitheesh went out of their way to make our stay special and were so helpful with every little request we had. The room was lovely and the air conditioning great (we even asked for an extra one of their lovely soft blankets as I get cold at night and my husband gets hot..... I still think we're suited!). the breakfast is scrummy and a great hang over cure!

They are in the process of doing up the sun deck (on the roof) and the plans sound fabulous giving the place a lovely chill out area. The restaurant next door does brilliant food (in my husbands opinion he thinks he had his best curry in India here!)

You can get advise on where to go for massages, where to eat and what to do.

Highly recommend this pleasant and friendly place. You will be made to feel like the special guest you are!

Enjoy your stay
