Stayed here 3 nights, would very happily stay more. Great location, nice atmosphere, the breakfast is decent but it is a quick walk to the cliff front where there are many better restaurants. The manager at the time was a huge help to me and friends and a very nice guy.

We stayed in the bamboo huts which were nice although a little crammed in next to each other. They had air con and a tv (which we didn't use but I'm sure some would like it!) and hot water. The double bed only had a single duvet on so it was a bit awkward trying to share the duvet. We... More

Went to this place with friends, stayed for a couple of days. The hotel is just 5min walk from the helipad, beach and the north cliff. The rooms were neat and clean.

This is great value for money place, less than 5 minutes walk to superb Varkala Cliffs and beach. Staff (esp. Tashi) here are super helpful, organised moped, train times and advise on local places to visit. Only one constructive point, the room is good but towels and bedding can be better.

We stayed at Vedanta for four nights in a nice double room with a fan for 800 rupies. The rooms were very clean and well kept. The staff was also very nice and fun, they really added to our stay. Very nice place for backpackers, since you get to meet fun new people.
