The Cliff Lounge Guesthouse
Ranked #56 of 105 Varkala B&B and Inns
Reviewed 7 March 2013

We stayed there for a few days and didn't want to leave! The rooms were clean, tasteful, and homey. The rooftop is a great place to watch the sun go down and snooze in the hammock! Sajeer and Elisabeth were so sweet and helpful. Sajeer's cooking class was also AMAZING! The location is the best - not on the loud cliff walk but right next to everything that you need and want. We will definitely be back next time we are in Varkala!

Room Tip: Take the cooking class!

Reviewed 7 February 2013

We stayed for 2 nights at the Cliff Lounge at the end of January. Our room was spacious, thoughtfully fitted out and spotlessly clean. On arrival there were lots of little extras which showed a lot of thought has gone into the comfort and enjoyment of the guests. It also had a super view of the sea. Sanjeeer and Elizabeth were friendly and extremely helpful especially when our daugther turned up unexpectedly!!

We stayed at the cliff lounge for 4 nights. The place is super located and you are close to the beach and to the restaurants.. Although it is very quite at night and you can also enjoy to stay on the balcony.we found Elisabeth simply great and very helpful with interesting hints of what to do and see. A place to feel at home! Thanks for the welcoming atmosphere!

The Cliff Lounge is in a great location, right in the centre of things near all the best places to hang out and a short walk from the steps to the beach. The room was excellent, lovely touches and objects and design which made us feel very welcome. We had a balcony which was lovely to hang out on but the view was of the back of another building. It looks as though it has been here for a while and Varkala has grown up around the small guesthouse.

The hosts were really helpful and welcoming - giving us tips on a local temple festival and arranging taxi for us to go to Kanyakumari for the day.

The only drawback on our New Year visit was the proximity of the Chill Out Lounge and therefore its mega party sound system in the new year small hours. However it was quiet the other nights.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor have private balconies and candles and incense are provided.

I really liked this friendly and clean guesthouse, with rooms that look more like a hotel than a guesthouse. Good for both short and long stays with excellent service and a very good location. Close to my favourite hang outs, Chill Out and Juice Shack and just a minute walk away from the cliff.
