After reading all the incredibly positive reviews here on TA, my wife and I were very excited for our stay at Villa Jacaranda. We had been traveling through India for 6 weeks staying in mostly mediocre accommodations and decided to splurge with an expensive boutique experience as a finale to our journey. We were both eager and curious what made...

We stayed at Villa Jacaranda in early December 2009 in Room 3. This is the room which doesn't have a balcony directly attached to it- however there is a large balcony just outside of the bedroom door which we didn't have to share with other guests. It has glimpses of the sea and is a lovely quiet spot, at tree...

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights at the start of a trip to Kerala. We organised a taxi through the hotel to collect us from the airport as our flight arrived very early. This made things MUCH easier, but we did pay over the odds for it. I wouldn't have changed this decision but it is worth bearing...

I agree with all the positive remarks however this place did not justify the price, which was 3-4 times as much as a room on the main cliff area of Varkala. The location is up a steep road away from the main beaches for sunbathing etc so nice and tranquil, but not so convenient. Our garden room was just that...

Had selected this place based on previous reviews and are so glad that we did! This was the perfect way to end our trip to Kerala - very small little guesthouse - only 4/5 rooms, but absolutely perfect. We had specificallly booked our room (No. 2 - although it looked like they had recently repained and there were no numbers...

We stayed here quite early on in our trip. Unfortunately, this set a very high benchmark for the rest of our accommodation in India. This is a really gorgeous and stylish guesthouse with meticulous attention to detail, without being fussy. It is an absolute haven. We foolishly used it as a stopover rather than a destination, and spent the rest...

We spent few days at the Villa Jacaranda and we won't forget it. Hope will be back soon. Everything was perfect! The best was the home prepared mango lassi on the balcony with sea view and fresh air (priceless...). The landlord is of good advises for the restaurants and an Ayurvedic place.

We spent 2 nights at Villa Jacaranda at the start of our holiday in Kerala in February. It was absolutely wonderful from beginning to end and we were very sorry to have to move on. We stayed in the ground floor room which has a beautiful terrace that opens up into the walled garden filled with colour and lush greenery....

I booked the hotel by internet after reading all the reviews. The villa is nice and very well kept, but the prices offered on internet are much higher than the market price that I could find if I had not booked. I am speaking about 50% or less even. If you go in high season, better to book but if...

We stayed at Villa Jacaranda for a week in January 2009 and can only echo much of what others have said. We loved the location on quiet North Cliff. The villa and gardens are beautiful - each room has the privacy of its own veranda and it really is a treat to just sit out over looking the gardens, watching...
