Travel Blogs from Varkala
After nearly four weeks of energetic fast paced intense travel, the time had come for us to move into a different gear.

Didn't see any other rooms and to be fair we had to book last minute. The mouldy smell and the plastic inside needs to be changed as well as the holes in the mosquito nets.
Staff were wonderful, freindly, accommadating, the area and rooms spotless and clean, great kitchen, services..
Wonderful Treatmement with professional staff , we enjoyed it very much. The location is fantastic and there is a really nice sense of welcome here. I would return but I wouldn't stay in cottage 109.
