Clafouti Beach Resort
Ranked #24 of 52 Hotels in Varkala
Reviewed 29 August 2014

We were few friends visiting for a day so the hotel was easy on the pockets. Facilities were worth the money and beyond. Though service is non-existant and was a great put off. The restaurant is outsoruced and manned by friendly folks serving only conitinental and North indian (No local delicacies). Again easy on your wallet. Since it was monsoon we were indoors mostly. But worth a visit if you happen to be around.

Room Tip: Choose the ac individual chalets.

I booked Non-AC room in Clafouti resort for 2 nights. Rooms were clean and well maintained. There was no TV in the room but when you have scenic beauty just outside your room, why will you need a TV in your room!
The restaurant at the resort was well maintained. The range of Sea-food they are offering is huge. Food was tasty and at very reasonable price.
My personal opinion: Go for it! You will have fun for sure.

Stayed for one night. Cozy, calm, mostly private, even outside in the premises, though that may have something to do with the fact that we went during off-season. The manager was helpful, breakfast at the cliff-top cafe overlooking the sea was great. The cottage rooms are spacious and tastefully furnished. No TV in the rooms, but you wouldn't want it once you get there.

Room Tip: Choose the sea-view cottage/ top floor of the villa.

I was stayed in sea view villa last week. Nice villa superb view from the lobby.
The restaurant is one of terrible food was served(maintain by north-eastern).
The door wasn't closed properly need to push hard. you bring your toilet needs(soap n all) no TV(exempt due to climatic condition) or phone to contact. high humid so always wet on lobby!

Other than this i like very much of ambiance of this resorts. staff are so polite and good.

Always need to care for children while you walk on cliff, mostly no barrier! so be careful all are more than 100 ft down.
i walk alone at morning really wonderful views and exciting experience! i wish to go agin to varkala.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view room

We just stayed in non AC room for one night. Basic necessity. Bare room with good view ! The staff was responsive and helpful. We really enjoyed the cool breeze. Lucky for us it didn't rain !

Ps- bring your own soap and other toilet necessity.
Must check out their restaurant

stayed overnight with a couple of friends. The room was very basic with a very noisy aircon. There was thunder storm overnight and the power fluctates widely with lights coming and going. There is no TV or even a phone. Shower and toilet was also very basic.
We ate at the restaurant .. we could point to a few fishes which they would cook for us. Chilly chicken was good, but the two fish dishes were poor.
We were visiting in the off season, so the weather was warm, with quite a few western tourists and few local IT crowd from trivandrum. The beech was also not very clean hence did not go in
the hotel is on top of a cliff with a walk around the cliff with no clear barriers, it is lucky that no one fell. The access to the hotel was very difficult without local knowledge. the whole experience was not good and the cost wad far too high for the experience we had. I felt with that sort of money We could have stayed in a better hotel

I stayed in Clafouti in Dec'13 with my mum and was really touched by the hospitality and friendliness of the manager and all local staff.
The restaurant is undoubtfully the best on Varkala beach - after trying a couple of other places we firmly decided to dine the remaining nights in it!
The auverdic center "Amruthasanjeevani" is owned and run by the nicest person, Ani, who helped arranging everything from massage to personally taking me to buy fresh fruits in the village. The quality of service (doctor consultations, massage, other treatments and medicine) was extremely good and Ani was flexible in adjusting treatments schedule to our needs.

My mum and I are both very happy to have stayed in this place and highly recommend it to everyone.
