This was the second time that I stated at Arabian Soul. The location is great, the rooms are very clean. The best thing is the Host, Naveen, he is such an easy going person who helps out with literally EVERYTHING. One could not ask for a better place to stay. Me and my friend really recommend this place to everyone...

We had a great time at the arabian soul. Good location, close to the helipad ant to many restaurants. We took the AC room with a view to the sea, which was really nice, and stayed for five nights. Naveen, the owner is a genuinely nice guy, and is always available and willing to help in any issue. We highly...

You know you have found a piece of heaven when the though of leaving is pure hell.  I genuinely cannot say enough wonderful things about Arabian soul.  The incredible vibe, energy and warmth the owner has created gives it that welcoming homely feel and it isnt any wonder why so many people keep returning.  I booked it after many recommendations...

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....

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....

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.
