We absolutely loved our stay at the exotic oasis that is Villa Jacaranda. Our room backed onto a beautiful garden with all sorts of gorgeous plants and flowers and at night we could sit outside in the twinkling candles and enjoy a drink in the heat. Ajay was wonderfully hospitable and the rest of the staff were perfectly attentive. Would...

We had a very relaxing 9 nights at Villa Jacaranda and can't thank Ajay and his team enough for looking after us so graciously. We had the top room with a large garden terrace where we had breakfast every morning after a surf. We also dined on the terrace one evening with lit candles and a delicious meal prepared by...

We stayed here as a family, and it was a lovely experience, clean, with consideration taken to bedding, cupboard space. The food for breakfast was good and the staff was friendly. The only thing to consider is it is on a road - which also has it's up side as there is a place across the road that has a...

We recently stayed here for a few nights and it was perfect for the purposes of our stay. The location is very close to the main beach, restaurants, cafes and shops and best of all the Ayurvedic clinic next door (you get a 30% discount if you are staying at the Villa!). Ajay, the owner, was very helpful with arranging...

Probably the most beautiful place for a stay in Varkala. For those of you who appreciate a good taste, the interior design is amazing, very stylish yet cozy. A prefect guest house for a romantic vacation. Service was excellent , so does the breakfast . every moment at villa jacaranda was a pleasure.

This was my second stay at Villa Jacaranda (first time in 2013). It is the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate. The location of the South Cliff is more upmarket than the North Cliff. Everything is nearby and there is even a tuk tuk stop over the road. The Villas and overlooking gardens are lovely and have everything you need,...

We happily booked this beautiful boutique hotel while still in the UK to be a "treat" at the end of a month-long trip. However -for me- it didn't feel like it warranted being quadruple+ the price of any other (lovely!) accommodation we stayed in throughout our trip or viewed in the immediate area of Varkala. The splurge would have been...
