My stay with friends at the Arabian soul guesthouse felt like “home sweet home”. Naveen the manager is doing a wonderful job there. You can tell he´s passionate about it. He knows what his guest want and looks after every single one of them. The whole place is looked after with love. There´s many pot plants, little decoration statues, comfortable...

I've been living at Arabian Souls for around 6 nights in November, 2016. It was a wonderful experience.

The owner, Navine/Narveen (I'm...

Lovely place to stay with great peaceful garden and good inside communal spaces to meet other guests. Room was fresh and clean with great views. Naveen, our host, was excellent, helping us plan our onward joinery and arranging a great dawn backwaters trip for us and others from the guest house. Would highly recommend this place to anyone considering visiting...

I love to stay at Arabian Soul when in varkala. Usually you would not expect the first guesthouse on the tourist mile to be a good choice, but this one is. It is on the main cliff tourist strip, but tucked a bit back and with a beautiful garden so you do not notice the commotion of the street. There...

This was the second time that I stated at Arabian Soul. The location is great, the rooms are very clean. The best thing is the Host, Naveen, he is such an easy going person who helps out with literally EVERYTHING. One could not ask for a better place to stay. Me and my friend really recommend this place to everyone...

We had a great time at the arabian soul. Good location, close to the helipad ant to many restaurants. We took the AC room with a view to the sea, which was really nice, and stayed for five nights. Naveen, the owner is a genuinely nice guy, and is always available and willing to help in any issue. We highly...
