We stayed in Shama's beautiful property Villa Akasa for 10 days in May 2017. From our first contact with Shama everything went like a dream. She was very prompt and friendly in getting back to us and when we arrived Shama was a perfect host. The room was superb. Quiet and with a beautiful en suite bathroom and A/C in...

We stayed ten days in Sharma's delightful air B & B in Vakala Beach. Utterly delightful stay - a beautiful room with ensuite and balcony with its own private entrance. The attention to detail was amazing in everything from the decor to the service. We enjoyed delicious breakfasts served to us on our balcony/ terrace by Vija and cooked by...

I love this place so much. It touches my heart to think about it! The rooms are so comfortable and well decorated, the private outdoor shower is decadent and wonderful, the food is superb, the location is perfect. The staff are amazing people.

This is long pending review from my side. I travelled with my wife. Heavenly place, amazing hospitality and food, nice location. Can never forget my stay. Thanks for making it memorable. Suggestion - If you keep bikes/bicycles at place, it would be even more fun for travellers to travel on their own

We spent 5 nights here, using it as a base to get acclimatised in Kerala. Ahead of our visit, Shama (the owner) was very helpful in obtaining train tickets for our onward journey. Villa Akasa is at the South Cliff end of Varkala in a largely residential area with few 'amenities'. The North Cliff with all of its restaurants, cafes...

This was our first time in Varkala and we were looking forward to some time to unwind and get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Villa Akasa was the perfect respite. We stayed in Jal, one among the three bright and airy rooms which was decorated so tastefully with knick knacks that our host had collected on...

Having been to Varkala before we knew where we wanted to base ourselves and this was just perfect. A 5 min walk to the beach and a 10/15 min walk to North Cliff but we felt like we were in an oasis. We stayed in one of the 2 cottages in the garden with a terrace giving onto the garden...

For 2016 we were lucky enough so spend the year travelling the world. Our stay at Villa Akasa, on beautiful Varkala Beach, was one of the most memorable due to the well designed suites (lovely open air shower), friendly and attentive staff and an amazing breakfast with home baked bread. Would recommend a stay here if you (like us) are...
