This place is a hidden gem, just a stone throw away from the north cliff of varkala (where everything is happening) and about 1 minute away from the nearest steps down the cliff to the beach. Despite this place being basically at the edge of the cliff and in the middle of the huzzle and buzzle of the varkala cliff walk, it is peaceful and no loud sounds from the places around. At night you can hear the waves crashing at the beach. The rooms and huts are clean and the staff will more than gladly help you with any requests or questions you might have. You'll get hot water in the shower (which is most usually not the case in India) and wifi works without any problems. At the yard there is a place where yoga is instructed every morning and afternoon, acupuncture and other treatments are daily. (all though I did talk and make my appointment to get a healing treatment, the guy ended up postponing indefinitely until I just gave up the idea of getting one. But I heard from other guests that the treatment was awesome). The manager Joey, is a super sweet man, who honestly goes over and beyond to help his guests with their problems. He is one of those people that believes in doing good deeds and does his own part in making the world a better place by helping others. For me his good energy, made me want to stay at the place the entire time and would recommend it to others. There were guest that had been returning there for years and if I'd return to varkala. I'd definitely choose La Mirban again. So if you're considering this place, just go for it.
