Arabian Soul proved to be such a wonderful stay for us, that we have chosen to go back there in October! Arabian Soul is situated on North Cliff, in this laid back beach town. It is tucked back from the main "street / path" behind the Coffee Temple cafe (the best coffee, in Varkala) It is setting in beautiful little...

After working in and travelling across Kerala, and then eventually further up the West Coast, my colleague and I ventured to Varkala Cliff for two days. Before arriving, we had not reserved any form of accommodation. Nor did we possess any information on the local hotels. Fortunately, we just simply exited the helipad on the right-hand side, walked a few...

I stayed in Arabian Soul for around 10 days and had a blast. The rooms were clean, comfortable and Naveen was more than helpful showing me and the others some of the best local cuisines in the area. I'd highly recommend this place for your visit in Varkala!

Arabian Soul is one of our favorite places during the trip! My boyfriend and I walked along the entire cliff to find the best place and our hearts settled on Arabian Soul as soon as we saw the room. The owner was very kind and helpful! My boyfriend got a very bad sunburn so we had to extend our stay...

Thank you Naveen, the kindest and most helpful host you can ask for. Arabian Soul is one of those places that is really hard to leave. The place has a great vibe, surrounded by lots of greenery and there are two lovely balconies where you can hang out with other travellers and watch the days melt away. There are different...

Arabian Soul was a great place to stay for a week. The room was clean, spacious, and everything worked. Plus it's right next to the coffee shop where everyone hangs out! Couldn't ask for more, thanks!

It is an amazing beautiful and peaceful place to stay, close to the beach, to the restaurants and the helipad. It is a little oasis with flowers and trees, nice rooms with lovely details and an owner with a lot of attention. I stayed more than 2 weeks there in a deep relaxation. There was also the possibility to make...

The staff member is like our neighbor, he was very friendly. Price is among the best in Varkhala, we had some hick ups in the bathroom maintenance. However, as it was in the verge of closing due to monsoon it was expected though. Well maintained rooms, felt like staying at a home than a hotel.
