We spent 2 nights at Villa Jacaranda at the start of our holiday in Kerala in February. It was absolutely wonderful from beginning to end and we were very sorry to have to move on. We stayed in the ground floor room which has a beautiful terrace that opens up into the walled garden filled with colour and lush greenery....

I booked the hotel by internet after reading all the reviews. The villa is nice and very well kept, but the prices offered on internet are much higher than the market price that I could find if I had not booked. I am speaking about 50% or less even. If you go in high season, better to book but if...

We stayed at Villa Jacaranda for a week in January 2009 and can only echo much of what others have said. We loved the location on quiet North Cliff. The villa and gardens are beautiful - each room has the privacy of its own veranda and it really is a treat to just sit out over looking the gardens, watching...

We recently returned from a stay at Villa Jacaranda for 3 nights at the end of our trip to Kerala. We stayed in Room 4 which is excellent value considering the massive terrace you get exclusive use of and the size/comfort of the room which were fantastic. The staff are great - Ajay was so helpful without being intrusive and...

Our stay at the Jacaranda for 10 days was the perfect base from which to experience our first trip to India. From early morning yoga sessions on the roof terrace followed by delicious breakfasts to lounging about in the evenings watching the sun go down and sleeping soundly on the comfy bed everything at VJ was exceptional. Ajay and his...

If you are seeking a place to stay where the prerequisites are: serenity, beauty, security and cleanliness, then make Villa Jacaranda your first choice. As a persnickety American accustomed to copious amounts of ice with drinks, constant air-con and cable TV, you can imagine that I was visiting India for the first time with trepidation. However, this wonderful place run...

We found the perfect beach holiday in Varkala. Villa Jacaranda was a hidden gem and the perfect end to our holiday in Kerala. Away from the main part of the resort, we loved Ajay's beautiful home. Ajay designed the house so that the rooms are private and not overlooked. They are all tastefully decorated. We had the best room! and...

We stayed in room four which had it's own massive terrace looking out to sea, perfect for the evening sundown. The room was large and furnsihed simply, with much thought and attention to detail. The bathroom was a great size and the plumbing was very good. The owner Ajay was the perfect host, even supplying us with a torch for...

I just wanted to share with you my wonderful experience at Villa Jacaranda during my stay in Varakala. This guest house is a pure jewel: by its location, the cleanliness of the rooms, the service and the kindness of the staff.

If you are the traveler who is looking for an authentic, unspoiled locale in Kerala, then the South Cliff area of Varkala is the place for you. And if you are looking for a place to stay that is the antidote to the impersonal, mass-produced tourist resort, then the Villa Jacaranda guest house should be your first choice. If you...
