I went to Maadathil cottages on a whim, with my mother and sister. We wanted a place near the beach, preferably in Varkala (and not Kovalam) and were going just for the day. I found Maadathil cottages via Tripadvisor; the reviews were good, and the photographs even better. However, the actual place beats all that. I would recommend Maadathil cottages... More

Cottages are built in a traditional Keralan style around a pond and carefully maintained garden. A beautiful coconut grove well contributes to a proper tropical feeling.

Maadathil Cottages is located in the quieter area Odayam Beach, a good more relaxed alternative to the nearby North Cliff area.
