Visited Varkala- Maadathil cottages recently. Most friendly staff, really nice place to sit and spend some quality time with family. Very neat and clean rooms, well maintained place. Not much to do other than take a few nice walks by the sea side and generally relax around listening to the waves crashing against the shores. Can just sit around the...

Maadathil is a beautiful property which is very close to the beach and cut off from the town. It is the best place to spend time alone (or with family) in peace and calmness. Mr. Muhajir and his family are a wonderful host. There is not a thing you can complain and the stay here was absolutely blissful.
