The manager Shibu will make sure you have a good stay here. He has a rare skill in Indian hotels (unless 4 or 5 star). He understands hospitality not too much just there when you need it. The hotel is clean, quiet, great value and close to the beach. If you are looking for the more crazy nightlife in Varkala then this is the wrong place as that is all on the north cliff but if you want the best of both worlds it's only 10 minutes walk.

Wonderful Staff, great location, excellent Restaurant Passion Fruit, with a simple Indian menu serving fresh organic food. I arrived here for a day and stayed a week with the lovely relaxed atmosphere it was hard to leave. Its only 2 minutes from the beach & across the road there is another wonderful coffee shop called Kerela Spice.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter
