I just love this place. It is set back from the road and is short walk downhill to the cliff edge and the start of all the cafes and restaurants. The rooms are really nicely decorated. We stayed in a lodge and it was clean and roomy. The bathroom did not have hot water but it was so hot I...

We stayed in a gorgeous little zodiac cottage and loved it. It's a super chilled out place with delicious organic (and cheap) lunch/dinner. The Mumbai toast is great! There is yoga on offer and a very professional massage/auyrvedic centre on site.

The Bohemian Masala Art Café is a gorgeous resort, cafe and yoga retreat that provides a calming atmosphere and healthy food. Maja the yoga therapist is wonderful, and very worthwhile for daily yoga sessions as she charms/gongs you in and out of a yoga session. You are in excellent hands with Maja.

We stayed for 5 nights at Bohemian Masala and loved every minute, it's probably one of our favourite places we stayed at in 2 months in Southern India. The resort is set back from the main Varkaka drag which was great...you really felt like you we're in an exclusive place away from the crowds. We stayed in a Cosmic cottage...

Stumbled across this accommodation as unhappy with place we were staying. As it was drawing to the close of season, it was very quiet and the restaurant wasn't open, but we stayed in a very cute little cabin, with a comfortable bed and quite important for us, a mosquito net. Cold showers but we had become accustomed to that after...

We traveled here in Feb 2013. There are 3 types of rooms, I stayed in the Universal room. I didn't have any particular problem with my room, but a friend who stayed in the Cosmic cottage had mice in her bathroom. This is India, and they don't believe in killing the mice, so they capture them and let them go....

Also they do a great set indian breakfast & lunch which is yummy & healthy! As for the yoga, I did the beginners course (I think it was 2500rupees for 10...

With the intention of staying here only 3 nights, we decided to stay for 2 more. If it would have been possible, we would have stayed even longer... why... you should go and discover it yourself... the garden, the smiles on the faces of the staff, the charming cottages, the warm water cottage, the location, the hang mats, the music,...

We loved our stay at Bohemian Masala. Great room, beautiful garden, nice restaurant with great healthy breakfast, good location. Yoga class is fantastic, great teacher. A great place to start our holiday in Kerala! We stayed here for 5 nights, which was the right amount of time for us: enough to fully relax, and long enough to have a good...
