Returning to a review of a destination after almost 6 months since visiting is an interesting way to see your real thoughts as to what has stayed with you regarding the experience in this interim. Wholeheartedly I can say that from many years of travel Shine, his crew and the small plot of the Seashore Beach Resort have a grand,... More

It is very well cultivated and the service is really good. We had great breakfast on the cliff side with sea view and banana lassie. The sea on the private... More

The resort is built in the south cliff facing the sea. Some steps have been made for people to get down and enjoy the beach which you can call it a private beach. There is ample space for those who want to enjoy the natures beauty by sitting in the lawn. Morning breakfast is well served and you can enjoy... More

Located on the south cliff only a 5-10 minute walk from the main beach and a few (steep) steps down to a smaller quieter beach. The hotel is located next to soul and surf a popular resort which offers daily yoga classes, surfing lessons and massage (however guests at soul and surf get priority with bookings so you may be...

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 (:-)

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.
