We travelled down from Fort Cochin and did not have anything booked, but wanted to go to a quieter part of Varkala and so got a taxi to Odayam beach, based on what we'd read on trip advisor and in the Lonely Planet. We stumbled across this place and luckily there was one beach bungalow left. We were overwhelmed with... More

after looking around for a better place to stay on a walk along the beach we finally found this wonderful place.Nothing compared to the busy North Cliff. Instantly we hired a wooden cottage: clean, with a fan and a mosquito net. The bathroom is beautifully done and the shower works! The garden is a treat and you can see that... More

The main reason to book this hotel is its location on the top of the small cliff of a fishermens beach where only 4 other hotels are located. Hence it is very calm and ideal if you want to spend some days at the beach or under the palms of the hotel garden. If you want to join the hustle... More

I love this place, the service gets better each time I've visited. Rakesh and his troops make your stay a pleasant one and nothing is too much of a bother. The chef will provide items which are not on their menu, you need only ask. I feel that if this place was a Time-Share, I would for sure be the... More

We (2 couples from Austria) stayed for 4 nights at the Blue water beach resort in Varkalla. We just loved it. We went for quite some walks along the beach and decided that this hotel had the best location - little outside, very calm and the beach very close, which only very few hotels can offer.. Restaurant is wonderful, staff... More

I recently spent 4 days at Bluewater,on the recomendation of a friend and thought it would be a good place to end my trip to Kerala. I wasn't disappointed. Rakesh and his smiling team really cannot do enough for you. I was made to feel very welcome, which in combination with the stunning location and lovely cottage was a winning... More

The hotel is in a beautiful spot. Very peaceful and unspoilt, but you are close enough to visit the busier North Cliff if you should wish, but then it's lovely to return to this calm haven. I stayed here for 4 nights and was looked after so well. Rakesh, the Manager, is always on hand and a fountain of knowlege.... More

My wife and I stayed here for four nights over the Christmas New Year period in December 2011. The hotel is directly adjacent to the beach, which provides for stunning views and easy access to the water. The hotel is a 10 - 15 minute walk to the main tourist area of Varkala, so it feels more relaxed and peaceful.... More

Wonderful location by the arabic sea. Peaceful and still alive with the nicest staff one can imagine around you to give you the best service and talk if you wish. If you want to have a special celebration Blue Water can really fix it.
