While traveling through South of India we stumbeld over this very nice,cosy and quiet place.We stayed there in the off season(August)
The Hotel itself is hidden in the woods, walking distance to the sea shore and a little path will guide you to the more busy part of Varkala(10,15 minutes walk at the Cliff/beach),so you can still enjoy the fish restaurants or the busy shopping.
The whole place is so quiet, you can hear the sea and the animals around this area.Especially at night when the big windows are open, you have the feeling of sleeping outside. There is no Wi-Fi or Television, which made this place even more peaceful and calm.The room was very modern,clean, comfortable and had a front and rear Balcony. The very friendly owner of the Hotel, Rafiq, took very good care of us and we had very nice conversations with him.He alaso made us really good breakfasts and decorated the Balcony with nice flowers.so we felt even more at home.
Back in Germany we still miss the peace,the silence and staying at this beautiful place a lot.
So if you are looking for a perfect place to relax, find peace at a perfect location with reasonable prices, this is definelty the place to go.We will stay there again for sure.
