Tucked away in a little village in Varkala, Villa Ākāśa is a quiet guesthouse, surrounded by nature and a few minutes walk from a beautiful, untouched beach. Our rooms are simple but elegant and are built for you to enjoy your time away from the chaos of the city.

• Private verandas to lay back and relax
• All rooms with en suite bathrooms (ground floor rooms with shower area open to the sky)
• Verandas of the ground floor rooms face opposite directions to maintain privacy
• Breakfast included
• Homely Indian dinner can be arranged if requested in the morning
• Free wi-fi
• Ceiling fans only, no air conditioners in the room
• Taxi to and from the Trivandrum airport can be arranged at an additional charge

Surrounding area:

Villa Akasa is in the heart of a village that is still barely touched by tourist development. We invite you to sit out on your private balcony and listen to the unique sounds of village life: the whisper of the coconut trees, the chirping of crickets during the night, the sounds of worship during the day. A short walk down the hill will lead you to the beach. This part of Kerala is geographically unique as it is the only place in Kerala where cliffs touch the Arabian Sea. The aqua green water contrasts with the bright red of the cliffs making this the perfect place to swim and to watch the sun set.

The North cliff or main tourist area is a twenty minute walk or short bicycle ride away. Here you will find some beautiful restaurants perched along the cliff edge and small shops selling curios and beach clothes. Auto-richshaws can easily be arranged for you.

Close by there is also a traditional Kerala style temple which is over 2000 years old. This temple is steeped in legend and myth and has an ancient energy; visiting it is a beautiful experience.

Other attractions of Kerala - elephant rides, house boat trips along the backwaters, ayurvedic massages and treatments - are easily arranged.

Villa Akasa was a beautiful tranquil stay for our family group of 7, with a quiet beach nearby and not too far from busy Varkala Beach. Shama and her team made us very welcome and the breakfasts were terrific.

Pramod is a gem of a caretaker and a great cook. The rooms were clean and very tastefully done! The closeness to the empty south beach is plus. Having dinner at Akasa is highly recommended. They make delicious Kerala meal, probably the best you can get in Varkala. The wifi was good, we had absolutely no trouble working from the Villa. We came back with a lot of happy memories!!

This was a magical stay. Shama is a wonderful host who was always caring for our every need. The room was kept spotlessly clean and the breakfasts and meals we enjoyed were beautifully prepared by Gita and served so courteously by Vijay. We would highly recommend Villa Akasa to anyone visiting Varkala Beach.

Villa Akasa truly is paradise. The rooms are lovely and the garden has a beautiful tropical feel. Shama and her team are fantastic hosts and helped us on numerous occasions to find the best that Varkala has to offer. Pramod, the manager, was brilliant and we have only the highest regard for him. You will not be disappointed with your stay at Villa Akasa.

We loved Shama's place...everything about it was relaxing and comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious (best coffee in India). The 2 dinners we had were also amazing. The outdoor showers are inspired. But the best thing was the staff and Shama herself who were lovely and incredibly helpful, getting medication for my husband who was unwell, and giving us helpful tips. And the 5 mins away quiet beach was beautiful. All in all we would absolutely recommend this place to anyone.
