"Varkala Bamboo Hut" State of Kerala Tourist Trap Tip by acidonrocks

State of Kerala Tourist Traps: 17 reviews and 14 photos

We had a confirmed booking in the bamboo village and cottages in Varkala. On arrival we were simply told that we won't get the booked cottages because the guests at the places are extending their stay and 'they can't do anything about it'. Seems like it is not a one off incident because our taxi driver told us to 'confirm the confirmation' and insisted that we get our luggages off the taxi ONLY when they hand the key over to us for the room.

Unique Suggestions: Words of wisdom:

no confirmation is a confirmation. don't waste your time and move to some other place. there seems to be plenty more around.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
