The rooms are spacious with...

Maadathil cottages is a great little place about 15 minutes walk from Varkala cliffs. Would recommend for anyone looking for a peaceful haven, with palm trees, hammocks and a beautiful little secluded beach. All the staff were extremely helpful, and went out of their way to give advice and generally make your stay great. We had a great stay here...

A lovely introduction to Kerala by the three brothers in charge of the cottages. Clean, spacious, lovely surroundings, good food, the warm Arabian sea to swim in and fishermen to watch.. The charm and great service offered by the staff made this so memorable.
