It is a beachfront hotel overlooking the sea from a small rocky cliff. The location is excellent and the wooden cottages were spacious, beautiful & clean. The staff were very friendly & the service was also good though there were only very few staff members. Since our travel was on off season time there was no much crowd and the... More

The staff were exceptional especially Francis and Navin. Beautiful surroundings. Great view of the sunset. Rooms were comfortable. 15-20 minute walk to the shops and restaurants in Varkala. Can get hot-so bring an umbrella or hat for the walk. The food was average and you could end up waiting awhile for your course. Bathroom-would have appreciated the shower being separate-the... More

Blue Water is a surprising gem. I found it accidentally while walking along the sea wall. Asked the friendly and helpful manager to see a room and took it immediately, leaving the other place I was staying without a second thought. Opted for the a/c bungalow, and only wish I had found this place sooner. The bungalows are spacious, very... More

The days I spent in the resort was remarkable. It must be one of the best resort in the area if we consider the location. Best thing was that it was away from the town and shops. 100% off from busy life. Initially I had some difficulty in locating the resort.On seeing the front gate I was totally depressed. But... More

Good place, great people.

They have multiple room options with the cheapest being non-ac. We had opted for 2 ac rooms and since it was off peak... More

I had checked in with my wife & kid couple of months back, The resorts offers beach cottages & there were couple of rooms as well. The location of the resort is awesome, right on sea front.
