We stayed in a double room with fan. They even had mosquito-net. The owner was very kind and helpful. The owner even arranged a trip with a boat for us to see the sunrise and then took us to an Indian restaurant. Very cheap price to pay for the standard we got, clean room with good WI-FI and great service.... More

I spent approx two weeks at Varkala, to combine some work with relaxation. Excellent location to do so. Naveen is a great host, eager to help in any way possible. He showed me the nice locations all over town. The best thing about the upper floor bedrooms is the view. Waking up overlooking the sea made many of my days.... More

Among many budget hotels, I would recommend Arabian Soul for it's privacy. Non-interfering owner who also stays in the same building is always there to help you with any needs. The room I stayed had an excellent view of the sea and large glass windows let you have the full benefit of the view.

I had intended in spending 5 days and ended up staying for 27 days! Arabian Soul is perfectly located near the helipad, close to sine if the best restaurants and a mere 100m away from the steps leading to the beach. The rooms are uncommonly nicely furnished, often tidied and have linen that is frequently changed. The 2nd floor rooms... More

We moved here from another accommodation and never regret. Finally spending more than a week at the easygoing 'arabian soul'. Naveen is a great host, who helped us to have a perfect stay in Varkala and it's surroundings. We recommend.

Seriously cool place to stay for a while! bright airy colourful rooms, nice garden with picnic table and hammock; and a wicked rooftop for yoga or whatever takes your fancy. Perhaps best off all were the three hardcase dogs who are always around to greet you and act as your personal watchdog! Highly highly rate this characterful place, sad to... More
