    Hey, if you are looking for a cheap room in an expensive area like Varkala this is just your perfect solution. The price for the rooms are just a dream compared to what is available elsewhere around. Good but simple for sure. This is India and not at all India.

    We stayed here for 2 nights and couldn't wait to leave. It's dark inside so you cant really see whats lurking! This dark interior is a particular style in Kerala and when done correctly is stunning but this room stank of smoke and felt dirty.

    Ended up here on recommendation from Villa Anamika, and couldn't be more different. The exterior is made of bamboo (not to be confused with the Kerala Bamboo House which which you walk through to get to the beach), and looks great on first sight. We had a room in the main building on the first floor.The rooms are somewhat dark,...
