Ajay and his staff made my stay wonderful. I will remember for ever the fantastic morning in Villa Jacaranda for the exquisite breakfast and the amazing view from my terrace. I will come back for sure one day.

Our stay at the Villa Jacaranda was by far our best in India and this includes a couple of days at the luxury Taj Palace in Mumbai. There were four of us in our group--two lawyers from Germany, a banker from Switzerland and a writer from London. What dazzled us during our stay was the simplicity yet completeness of our...

Thank you, Ajay and wonderful team, for a memorable stay at the beautiful Villa Jacaranda. We were looked after from the moment we arrived with great care and wonderful hospitality. The whole environment - room, garden and location - is so lovely and relaxing. The breakfasts were works of art and we had dinner on Linda's birthday, which was superb...

I have recently spent twenty-five days in Varkala, enjoying its beautiful beaches under amazing red cliffs, experiencing the power of Ayurvedic treatments, attending the best yoga sessions, cheering up with the easy smile and mood of the local people... but the best experience of all has been staying at Villa Jacaranda. Ajay, the owner, made me really feel at home....

Villa jacaranda sits at the top of south cliff, a few minutes walk down (some very steep steps) to the nicer of the 2 beaches. Ajay and his staff are lovely and helpful, full of recommendations of places to eat and where to go in Varkala. North cliff (where most of the restaurants are) is 10 minuets walk away. Room...

We spent our first 3 nights in Kerala here and couldn't have asked for a more comfortable and appealing beginning to our trip. So wish we had booked one more night. The garden is a delight and our room and balcony all done with great taste. Nice simple lunch or early dinner menu - well cooked. One tip: the place...

We stayed about 12 nights at the Villa. Our stay was very agreable. The villa is an oasis with style and attention to details. Ajay was very kind and most helpful when we needed some help or advice. The staff is as well very nice and attentive. We had dinner twice and the food was excellent. Breakfast is as well...

Villa Jacaranda was perfect. Our group had the whole place for 5 nights as we were in India for a wedding. The welcome chat fro Ajay was a great start as he told us all the good places. Rooms were comfy and clean, food was incredible (breakfasts on the roof terrace) and they get the details right - like fresh...

Our holiday at the Villa Jacaranda was unforgettable. We had a simple elegant room with our own roof garden, where the delicious breakfast was served. One evening we ordered dinner and returned to our roof garden to find it lit by many candles,with a display of gorgeous flowers on the table. The traditional Keralan meal was stunningly good. Our charming...

We stayed here for 3 nights, within a two week trip in India. We were welcomed by the friendly Ajay and showed to our beautifully finished room. It is located out of the main shopping/hotel area which adds to the serenity of the place, ut isn't too far from everything. We can't thank Ajay and his team enough for looking...
