My mother (50s) and I (20s) spent three nights here in October 2011. Pink Aana is a quiet group of beach bungalows a bit north of Varkala. It was great to be able to walk up to Varkala (10 minutes) along the cliffs, enjoy the hustle and bustle and the shops, and then retire to the peace of quiet of Pink Aana. There are also some nice walks in the other direction.
The beach bungalows are sparse but perfectly clean and comfortable. What made our stay here truly memorable was the service and the food. Each night, we enjoyed a fabulous feast courtesy of our host and chef, which we enjoyed sitting out in the garden looking over the beach, surrounded by a ring of candles set up specially for us. This would be perfect and terribly romantic for a honeymoon! He even gave us a cooking lesson covering nine dishes, which was free of charge and extremely interesting.
My mother enjoyed a three-day massage/treatment package at the ayurvedic centre just above Pink Aana (50m), which was frequented mostly by locals and was run by a very friendly Keralan family.
