“Luxury in Varkala for shorter stays”
Reviewed 30 January 2010

This is probably one of the nicest places i've stayed.
We've had a deluxe room with a/c and breakfast included and the room was quite small but really nice. We had a small porch (the deluxe rooms are one story up) with a great view and the hotel had all the resort had all the luxury you could wish for (dental spa, traditional spa, supermarket and so on).
Though I have to add – it's quite expansive (by indian measures). So if you are planning on staying in Varkala for a couple weeks a more modest place would probably be more fitting. We stayed for four nights and for that time it was really worth the price – compared to living a long way from the beach with no a/c, having to walk at home in the complete darkness from the restaurants at night and so on.

We paid $78 a night w/out breakfast, and this was supposedly a great deal!

Nice rooms and bathroom, but awful bed with cheap foam mattresses. Ayurvedic Spa which my wife liked. I'net, little shop, travel agent available. Great location right on the cliff. Restaurant service abysmally slow.

I my Baby and my Husband accompanied by a few friends went to Kerela by a matter of chance got down at Varkala station.we were supposed to get down at Trivandrum however we took advise from a local traveling in the train with us got down at varkala.we got an Auto Rickshaw.the driver was friendly and took us to some budget hotels as we requested.we choose Clafouti resort although not cheap as soon as we saw it we fell for it i have attached some pics of the resort.the view was amazing its on a cliff and below is the clear blue sea there is a way to the sea just walkable distance from the resort.It is very apt for foreign nationals as i saw many already there enjoying beach getting tan and all sorts of french Italian and English cuisine available in total nice place to go swimming in clear sea good food night life lots of seafood fresh catch and lots of coconut trees.
