I booked three nights here. It is a perfect spot, in a private setting on the cliff of Verkala. Staff are friendly, atmosphere is relaxed. Affordable rates with no hidden charges. Spacious huts. no hot water in my one, but trust me you don't need hot water! We did have an amazing thunder storm one night and had no electricity...

Couldn't have picked a better place! The huts are spacious, affordable, clean & the staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms aren't automatically cleaned, as only you have the key, so just ask for anything you need or want done- no problem. Great chilled out community vibe. Lots of solo travellers and couples of all ages. Only 15 metre walk...

We actually didn't stay here in a room, however we did do the cooking class available and it was the biggest waste of money ever!! 1500 for 2 people, cooking 5 dishes! we were really excited as we had read the previous reviews of this class. We honestly didn't get to cook a single thing, the chef was rude and...

This is an oasis in a very busy beach area. Located on the north end of Varkala just minutes from the beach. Close to all the restaurants, conveniences, shopping and spas. A real gem and highly recommended.

Utterly shocking. We had booked a 2 h cooking experience and was met by the most arrogant, uninterested "chef", probably the unfriendliest person we've stumbled upon in this area. He hardy spoke to us or answered any of our questions. After a surreal situation when one of us slightly leaned against a table made of rotten wood attached to the...

I spent 15 very relaxing days at the Kerala bamboo house. It was still low season and was so quiet wandering around in the cliff rd. The resort overlooks right there, on the fantastic view of the ocean, just 20 meters walking. The beautiful tropical garden, the kindness of the staff and the proximity to the beaches and all the...

I came here in the low season where very few shops were open. At first I was greeted by the manager and I asked if he had wifi, he said he did but it wasn't working and they called someone to repair it but he didn't want to guarantee anything. I appreciated his honesty and decided to stay anyways (he...

The staff were good guides. They were very helpful telling us some recommendations. The rooms were clean and lovely. We were there during May, so it was really hot, so we decided to stay in the room during afternoon and chill in the mornings or evenings.
