Bamboo Village
Ranked #48 of 103 Varkala B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 February 2016

Sea breeze, hammocks and a very pleasant atmosphere.
We stayed in a room as all the cottages were booked.
They ask for money to be transferred in their account if you book it through booking.com. I was afraid to do that at first so my booking got cancelled. But they arranged a room on the same day we reached which was very kind of them. The location was very close to shops and restaurants and even the beach. The sea view from the hotel was mind-blowing. Overall it is an excellent budget hotel.

Room Tip: Kindly carry your own bathroom amenities

If you want to stay amidst nature with a view of the unending sea, Bamboo Village is the place to be !
We stayed two nights in a sea view bamboo cottage amidst coconut palms, enjoying every moment of our stay at this wonderful place. It is certainly not an upmarket option and caters to basic necessities with friendly & helpful staff. Though it does not have its own restaurant, the Tratoria's Restaurant nearby, serves great culinary delights through out the day.
Looking forward to visit this place, again !

Bamboo village is a great value for money. It's located just by the (north) cliff road where all the restaurants and shops are located.
Room was clean and without any insects, you don't need to choose bamboo cottages as they are just more basic and don't provide any additional advantages. There was no hot water, but it wasn't a big problem as refreshing shower after a day on the sun is very welcome.

If you want a secure, pleasant and calm place to stay, stay here. Mr Kumar and Funky will make you very welcome and they are extremely helpful in a very genuine way. I came here as a stranger and left as a friend.
Great value for money and great location.

I really liked the place. It was a good location and cosy environment. The staff was so nice and if you sat at your balcony at the right time you get chai. For me and my friend that just looked for a bed for four nights this was very good. We booked before arriving and liked it. They helped us book a cab to the airport also. So if you looking for a simple but nice place to stay just a five minutes walk to the beach, then this is a good one.
