I have never experienced such a neat and cosy place - with perfect distance to the hustle and bustle on the Varkala North Cliff - quiet and right on the small beach of Odayam. Perfect spot for dolphin-spotting. There are eight or maybe ten rooms all together - perfect for friends, couples or lonely travellers - but not for party... More

It was a last minute plan. I was very apprehensive when I made the booking, but loved it from the moment I saw it. Right on the Indian ocean, sleeping to the sounds of the blue waters, it was a wonderful and clean place to relax and have a quiet holiday. Very friendly and welcoming staff and Manager on 24...

We've been to this resort 3-4 times now because the staff are so helpful and friendly, and because it's in such a good location. It has recently had a refurbishment, which means a better office, and better eating areas. The rooms are basic: there is no mini-bar or fridge, and no flat-screen tv. Most of the rooms have no A/C,... More

Stayed here one night as part of our tour of Kerala. On arrival we were taken straight into our room and just left there! It's not entirely clear where the 'lobby' area is as the hotel is made up of many small huts. Rakesh the manager is a very nice and helpful man but the hotel needs to work on... More

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
