After four weeks of travelling my last stop in India was Varkala and Arabic Soul. Very positive and chillllllllll vibes. The hefe Navin was cool and very helpful. Rooms are nice and clean and the second floor hangout area was very nice. The rooftop was very nice place to watch full moon and do yoga.

It was a pleasure to stay in this beautiful house! Just positive vibes and nice people. The garden is a nice place for relaxing. All in all everything was really good and we feel like home. You will enjoy your time in varkala much more when u stay at the arabian soul.

My stay with friends at the Arabian soul guesthouse felt like “home sweet home”. Naveen the manager is doing a wonderful job there. You can tell he´s passionate about it. He knows what his guest want and looks after every single one of them. The whole place is looked after with love. There´s many pot plants, little decoration statues, comfortable...

I've been living at Arabian Souls for around 6 nights in November, 2016. It was a wonderful experience. The room are clean and cosy, there is room to chill out, the garden is lovely (and there is a slack line!). There are 3 dogs; I'm not always happy about dogs, but these 3 where so cute. The owner, Navine/Narveen (I'm...

Lovely place to stay with great peaceful garden and good inside communal spaces to meet other guests. Room was fresh and clean with great views. Naveen, our host, was excellent, helping us plan our onward joinery and arranging a great dawn backwaters trip for us and others from the guest house. Would highly recommend this place to anyone considering visiting...

I love to stay at Arabian Soul when in varkala. Usually you would not expect the first guesthouse on the tourist mile to be a good choice, but this one is. It is on the main cliff tourist strip, but tucked a bit back and with a beautiful garden so you do not notice the commotion of the street. There...
