The attention to detail shown in the décor, food, cleanliness and service by the very friendly and helpful staff was exceptional. We felt completely relaxed and welcome throughout our stay. The location was great and the house is beautiful. We strongly recommend the room on the top floor with the private balcony if possible. Varkala was one of our favourite...

My stay at Villa Jacaranda was great. The staff and Ajay the owner was very attentive and helpful. I totally enjoyed my stay at this villa. It's close to the ocean and the restaurants on the south cliff.

It was my second stay at Villa Jacaranda and, as expected, I was not disappointed! The service is personalised, friendly and unobtrusive. The food - both for breakfast and for dinner - is of high quality, home cooked and evidently made with love! The building itself is gorgeous - well appointed rooms without being ostentatious. I would always recommend this...

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...
