Savithri Inn
Ranked #20 of 52 Hotels in Varkala
Reviewed 8 December 2013

Savithtri inn is about 100m back from the cliff in Varkala so a perfect location as very close to restaurants, beaches, etc (just a couple of minutes walk). Our hut was cool, clean, spacious with chairs to sit out front in the nice garden. There were also hammocks (that we never used). Laundry service is expensive so we did ours elsewhere and the guy from the travel hub did not find it necessary to tell us how much commission he was charging to book us a room in Trivandrum (we only found out when the hotel there told us how much the room really was). Hot water and wifi were always available (allowing for power cuts of course) and the manager was very friendly. Great value for money.

Lovely new, clean, large bungalows, all with hot water, AC optional. The bungalows are set in a beautiful, well maintained garden. It's very peaceful here. It's not right on the cliff, but just behind, which is better in my opinion as it makes it that much more peaceful. You can walk down to Black Beach in 3 minutes and the main cliff with all the restaurants, etc in1 minute. The manager is also very helpful.
I've looked at other places since coming here, I have been offered cheaper, but haven't seen any as good value as this. The manager tells me the place has been open for 1 year, everything looks well maintained.

This place is great. Like many other travellers in Varkala, we were deceived by the rickshaw drivers at the train station who are commissioned to bad-mouth other hotels and take you to specific places where they get a hefty payout. We ended up in one such place which was dirty, noisy and the walls weren't filled in properly so it was full of mosquitoes. Eventually we were suggested Savitri Inn and were amazed at how nice it was at half the price! The rooms are spotless, and on your room's veranda is a fan, perfect for sitting outside in the hot days. Although we didn't need it, there is instant hot water. Overall, this place is a bargain, and although it's placed back from the road, it's much closer to the beach than most other resorts on the strip. Definitely recommended.

Room Tip: All the rooms seem the same quality, and are in a peaceful hammocked garden away from the noise of t...

We came here after staying at another place in Varkala which was'n that good. We were suprised to see such a nice, new and clean resort. The cottages were super, a big clean room and clean bathroom (with hot water), and a veranda outside with two chairs and a table. We payed only rs 800 a night, which is a bargain, especially when you compaire it to other places where the charge the same. The resort isn't located a the cliffs, but you won't miss that at all.

After disappointment with our original hotel that we had booked into, which was dirty and didn't have the things specified on their hotel outline, we were relieved to find accommodation at Savithri Inn. The staffs were extremely accommodating and could not have been more helpful.
The room was exceptionally clean, everything was new and comfortable.
Great location, had a very enjoyable stay
