Get in, relax, enjoy..... Dec 04, 2008
We liked it here, in fact we liked it alot!!! really nice huts set in peaceful gardens, hammocks hang between trees, small ponds sit bubbling away with fish, and small waterfalls cascade onto rockeries, good huh?
There's different huts for different budgets, from the grand with your own chez longue ( not sure about the spelling but you know that old french sofa typ lying down sort of thing!!!) , four posters, power shower, etc etc for 1000rupees ( still quite a bargain ) to the cheaper option which we went for, that is pretty much the same except you don't get hot water or the chez and your patio furniture - yes you still get your own patio / balcony - doesn't have cushions. Hot water is available in buckets whenever you want though, not exactly roughing it eh ??? and we only paid 400, after knocking them down from 5. Be careful though when we left they still tried to charge us 500 and it took a bit of an arguement to get our original price!!!! All the different types of hut also contain some very interesting kitsch furniture which is quite an odd touch.
A nice touch is the box of water in your room, and although you still have to pay for it, it does come in handy on those drunken nights when you feel as though you could empty the sea your so thirsty!!!
You also get 10 % off at the Keralla Coffee House on the clifftop, which also happens to be the cheapest place to eat in Varkala anyway!!! You have to try the Goan fish curry it's insanely good.
They also have cookery courses at the house, laundry service, internet, travel agancy and money exchange, yeah this is a good place to relax and spend a week or so.....
