This is a very mixed review as some parts of Sea Shore were very good and others were poor. For this reason I sadly don't feel I can fairly give more than an average review. The positives first: the setting is gorgeous, the grounds are beautifully kept with a lovely view to the sea. Hammocks and swings outside are a... More

North Shore on Varkala Beach is noisey, crowded and the beach area is not so nice if you want privacy. Here on South Cliff and Seashore Beach Resort we found serenity and ultimate beauty. The staff is excellent the rooms and suites are beautiful, relaxing and very welcoming. While in India, everyone needs a rest and this place is exquisite...don't... More

Varkala is fast growing and North Cliff is bustling with activity. And so one can head to South Cliff for more calm and quite. And would definitely recommend Seashore as the best icing on the cake. We blocked a cottage online and the wonderful Mr.Shine replied. Arriving in March end, it was almost off season, and there was less occupancy... More

We stayed at the Sea Shore for 10 days over Christmas 2013 with our 8 year old son. Let me tell you: the place is an absolute gem! From the pickup at the airport on we felt exceptionally welcome, well treated and highly valued as guests . Shine, the owner, is helpful in every respect. He is open and friendly... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, having booked 3 cottage rooms. Our experience was in line with the high expectations that were set from the reviews we read on trip advisor. The rooms were clean and seemed brand new, service was impeccable, and the location of the resort was fabulous - overlooking the sea and with good sea breeze all... More

Basic bedrooms with all you need; gentle service; a lovely garden where you get a wonderful breakfast; close to several restaurants. A lovely beach, with the only con that you have to descend (and then climb) 110 steps (nothing wrong for health and diet (:-)

This is a great place in a stunning location at the top of South Cliff with views out over the sea and away from the hustle and bustle of North Cliff but within easy reach. The rooms are spotless and well appointed, particularly the bungalow rooms. Shine and his team are helpful and always have a smile. They work hard... More

Best location in Varkala, on the Southampton Cliff. With a nice garden and 110 steps down to the beach, this is perfekt, more relaxed than the more pushy North Cliff. With clean rooms, and a verk helpful staff this can be recommended for your stay i Varkala.

We have just returned from 6 nights at the SeaShore beach resort - we spent Christmas day relaxing on the sun loungers and hammocks under the palm trees, listening to the Arabian sea crash against the shore below. A Christmas that we will always remember and treasure. SeaShore is a wonderful place for two reasons: the staff and the location.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
It's a very beautiful piece of paradise. It's a guest house (I couldn't call it something so cold as a resort) that delivers excellent service with a low key spirit of wanting to make your experience as enjoyable as possible. The rooms are clean, comfortable and the higher-end suites are exceptionally lovely and all for prices that make this the very best value I have almost ever experienced in all my travels.
