Hey, if you are looking for a cheap room in an expensive area like Varkala this is just your perfect solution. The price for the rooms are just a dream compared to what is available elsewhere around. Good but simple for sure. This is India and not at all India.

This dark interior is a particular style in Kerala and when done correctly is stunning but this room stank of smoke and felt dirty. It wasn't just the mosquitoes and the dozens of beetles that emerged in the bathroom...

The exterior is made of bamboo (not to be confused with the Kerala Bamboo House which which you walk through to get to the beach), and looks great on first sight.
