I spent 15 very relaxing days at the Kerala bamboo house. It was still low season and was so quiet wandering around in the cliff rd. The resort overlooks right there, on the fantastic view of the ocean, just 20 meters walking. The beautiful tropical garden, the kindness of the staff and the proximity to the beaches and all the...

I came here in the low season where very few shops were open. At first I was greeted by the manager and I asked if he had wifi, he said he did but it wasn't working and they called someone to repair it but he didn't want to guarantee anything. I appreciated his honesty and decided to stay anyways (he...

The staff were good guides. They were very helpful telling us some recommendations. The rooms were clean and lovely. We were there during May, so it was really hot, so we decided to stay in the room during afternoon and chill in the mornings or evenings.

My whole trip of Varkala was spoiled due to the massage at This place due to inexperienced masseur. I and one more of my friend got a massage from this same boy named Melbin, and we both have around 50 boils on the inner thighs and calves. The stupid boy used less oil and was so harsh that our hair...

My friends and I had to change rooms twice because of an infestation of ants. After complaining, the manager's solution was to spray all my belongings with Raid. He proceeded to blame us, saying this has never happened and it must be our bags. (He also blamed the wifi not working on a non-existent lightning storm). Yes, ants can sometimes...

This is only a review of their massage and 'spa' facilities, as I was not a guest at their hotel. -- I booked an appointment for 6.30pm for a back massage. Upon arrival, it appeared the staff were not on-hand and I was asked to wait. After the consultant made several frantic calls to her staff members, we were able...

The Mr says: 'This was the least painful cooking class I've been dragged into. You learn a huge amount, one on one in a very small amount of time.
