We had been recommended this place by friends who told us the accommodation was quirky, clean and picturesque. They were right. We enjoyed waking up to the sounds of birdsong and having our breakfast served to our hut. The staff were extremely helpful and attentive and genuine concern was shown when I made it aware I was feeling slightly unwell...

We were blown away by how beautiful this place is. So much attention to detail, most romantic atmospheric cottages and well maintained tropical gardens Highly recommend this place 5 min walk from sea.

We booked 3 nights at Bohemian Masala on the basis of the fantastic reviews on here and a similarly glowing report in the Guardian newspaper but were disappointed. The place has been bought by VC resorts who are in the process of transforming it into an expensive resort. The yoga, cafe and Ayurvedic centre are no longer in existence nor...

There are some properties that you connect with the minute you walk into them! With greenery all around, you immediately get a feeling of peace and relax. The rooms are pretty basic with very interesting architecture. When we were told there was no A/c we were a bit concerned but the rooms are surprisingly cool! Beautiful interior decoration as well....

A very good choice if you are looking for silence and rest. The staff were very kind and helpful. The bungalows were clean and nice. The beds were large enough for two persons to have a good night's sleep. I can highly recommand The Bohemian Masala!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It's another world, the Varkala beach resort. Built around the eco-concept, it borrows its architecture from the natural science of the tribals. The handmade cottages made with mud, clay and flowers ensure maximum natural energy air flow, translate that into cool even during summer. In the midst of a thick green cover, and a 5-minute walk from the cliffs and the beach, V Resorts Bohemian Masala stands apart from the other beach resorts in Varkala. The resort promising all the sensual pursuits of a traveller, such as traditional temples, beaches, an eclectic food scene, as well as Ayurvedic massages, is ideal for a peaceful, tranquil vacation. Lounge around in the hammocks in peace and quiet, sample the traditional Kerala fare, walk around its herb and spice garden, or just sit around and meet interesting travellers from across the world. Those times, when you do feel like a walk, step out and hit the beach, indulge in water sports, or try your skills at surfing. ... more   less
