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.

The Rough Guide claimed for it to have uninterrupted sea views which i would find hard to believe with any of the rooms as there are various buildings all infront of Cliff Lounge. We wondered if new developments have been built in between Cliff Lounge and the Sea view since the review had been written?? In any case - it's misleading. We found the room ok, but not exceptionnal by any standards - and certainly NOT sea views - do not let this be the reason for you to stay, as you'll be disappointed. It's more views of the wall of the building immediately next to you - felt a bit boxed in. Think the place has seen better days - it was a good enough base, in terms of it being 5 minutes away from the beach, and near the shops and be warned it is behind one of the most popular bars. The place itself is pretty uninspiring and not really somewhere you'd want to hang out and relax at - but then you do have the beach 5 minutes away. Good for somewhere to lay your head for the night, but over priced compared to other places we stayed at - and if it's ambience you're after, I would go somewhere else up the road.
