Probably the most beautiful place for a stay in Varkala. For those of you who appreciate a good taste, the interior design is amazing, very stylish yet cozy. A prefect guest house for a romantic vacation. Service was excellent , so does the breakfast . every moment at villa jacaranda was a pleasure.

This was my second stay at Villa Jacaranda (first time in 2013). It is the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate. The location of the South Cliff is more upmarket than the North Cliff. Everything is nearby and there is even a tuk tuk stop over the road. The Villas and overlooking gardens are lovely and have everything you need,...

We happily booked this beautiful boutique hotel while still in the UK to be a "treat" at the end of a month-long trip. However -for me- it didn't feel like it warranted being quadruple+ the price of any other (lovely!) accommodation we stayed in throughout our trip or viewed in the immediate area of Varkala. The splurge would have been...
