I booked and pre paid 50% for a 5 night stay in a deluxe ac villa. We clearly have different definitions of deluxe. One drinking glass, a bar of soap and a plastic chair aren't really the extent of my expectations. For almost £80 or night I didn't expect to have to go asking for toilet paper and for the...

Am writing this before checking out after one day, even after having paid in advance for three days. That should say it all. The absolute worst management & maintenance for a well located property. There is round the clock construction happening in the property today even over the Christmas holidays, they originally tried to saddle us with a room facing...

This Place is not very crowded (in mid october). Recommend individual cottage rather than the hotel like rooms. But the road leading to this place is very bad and there are no nice markers/signs along the way. Watch out for the painters doing their job with no regard to the guests. The rooms are nice, but there was a gecko...

In one word it's a fabulous resort on the cliff top facing the sea. The sound of the sea hitting the cliff mesmerises you. You can sit in the restaurant in the evening and enjoy the sunset with your drink. The cottage was cosy and had all the modern amenities. The beach is also accessible from the resort . Worth...

The hotel is above north cliff of varkala. From the hotel restaurant only a magnificent sea view awaits. Even most of the rooms are having sea view. The restaurant deserves a five star for its food quality and staffs' cordiality. Overall a very nice experience.

View from the cliff is good but poor facilities. No telephone, TV, even tea kettle even in Deluxe villas. Villa was clean but no deluxe facilities. We spend one day at Clafouti. I felt it as an average resort.

If you are a female and travel to Varkala in Kerala, then receiving a massage from Lakshmi is really truly essential. So many people are massage therapists these days but not like Lakshmi - who is truly gifted and special. She is an energy healer with truly loving, healing hands. She certainly knows what she is doing, and you will...
