Fodor's Expert Review Maadathil Cottages

Edava St., Manthara, Varkala, Kerala, 695311, India

This small group of cottages is north of Varkala and close to both Odayam and Edava beaches. In these lovely, traditional, red-roofed Kerala bungalows, the only sounds you're likely to hear are the crashing of the waves. The cottages face each other in a coconut palm grove and are simply furnished and comfortable. A beach is just a few meters away. Some cottages are non-air-conditioned and therefore cheaper.

PROS

  • splendid isolation, but still within good distance of Varkala (it's 20 minutes and Rs. 150 by auto-rickshaw)

CONS

  • might be too quiet for some
  • simple rooms
