A great location, Clafouti is surrounded by many cafes on both sides. The rooms are spacious, the staff is courteous. I stayed there for 5 days and enjoyed the experience. The beach was just 7-8 minutes away but that beach was always crowded and too public for my taste so I preferred to take a 20 minute walk in the...

After a long hot day I thought I'd treat myself to a facial and was blown away by Lakshmi. The space is small and humble but her hands are expert. Facial consisted of a cleanse, scrub, massage with oil, massage with a metal sphere, a face mask and a perfect neck, head and arm and hand massage. I would love...

We stayed in the Clafouti Beach resort for two nights at the end of our Kerala trip and it was a great experience. A clean room with Fan/AC, modern bathroom with warm shower and Sea facing patio, just lovely. The highlight for me was having a massage at Lakshmi's Herbal Beauty Studio, just through and behind the Clafouti restaurant. Lakshmi...

Clafouti has great curb appeal. It's a higher end resort on the North Cliff. It has a variety of rooms, including cottages. I stayed in one of the ground floor "standard" rooms that had its own porch. And while the room was well appointed, I did not have hot water for my entire stay (one day), the wifi was terrible,...

Clafouti Ayurvedic Heritage Resort has an independent Restaurant for all customers including those staying at their property. The food they serve is one of the best at Varkala Cliff priced at very reasonable rates.

This hotel was really well located, and the adjoining restaurant of the same name was great - cheap, huge choice and delicious food. I really liked the deluxe villas ( not so deluxe but separated from each other with grassed area, and in the best location). The other "sea view" rooms have recently been renovated but not many of them...

Rooms are just Average. Not enough Parking space available. Hotel Location is difficult to locate (incorrectly shown in Google Maps) Hotel is difficult to reach (lanes are very very narrow) Food is average. Poor and slow service by the Restaurant staff Only plus point: Good location in terms of proximity to the beach. Very beautiful view.
