As a group of girls we felt safe and well looked after. The owner was friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable, comes with mosquito nets already. Hammocks are awaiting you outside the door so you can relax on the balcony. The location was great; very short walk to the cliff tops where all the restaurants and shops...

Cliff Lounge is the perfect place to stay in Varkala. Julie & Nitheesh are lovely and welcoming, very helpful too. Our room was so nice it felt like home immediately. We loved the balcony view. Mosquito coils were a nice touch. We would have loved to stay for longer but ran out of time! Many thanks for a great stay.

Awesome place - clean, comfortable, affordable. 100m from the beach. Cool rooftop with a hammock. Nitheesh and Julia made us feel relaxed and at home the moment we walked in. Not to mention they have an adorable puppy that we loved hanging out with. We intended to stay for 3 nights which turned into 7 nights because we didn't want...

From when I arrived, they organised a taxi from the airport in the middle of the night and gave great advice about the area during my stay. The double room and bathroom was...

The Cliff Lounge Guesthouse was recommended to me by a friend. I couldn't have asked for more. The rooms are very nice and clean. They have A/C rooms as well but the non A/C rooms are equipped with a ceiling fan which was enough for me. Very good value! Good WiFi reception in the rooms as well as on the...

We were in varkala for 4 days and left this place after 2 nights after finding accommodation nearby for less than half the price with an uninterrupted sea view and a garden (Prasanthi Cliff). The owners seem very nice and do go out of their way to help. The rooms were also cleaned daily. However the location is a bit...
