The best place to enjoy the nature without any strain. Better place to experience the gourmet foods and also it's better to have cocktails near the pools which l make ur heart feel the peace. Jus knock their doors for checkin into heaven

We stayed here as a back-up as we were surfing with Soul & Surf next door but they were fully booked. It was a beautiful surprise (and a third of the price!). The rooms are clean and simple - although our basic room was a little stuffy at times. But the gardens are what it's all about - immaculately landscaped... More

This hotel has 9 rooms, but there's a lot of space so it always feels quiet and serene. Rooms, bathrooms and veranda area are always kept clean. There are hammocks everywhere, you get your own personal hammock outside your room and then there are various hammocks in the grounds. It is very close to the beach. It is located on... More

I have visited The Seashore twice this season . The rooms are comfortable and sparklingly clean. The gardens are a Paradise on the edge of the South Cliff. Very reasonably priced Standard rooms and a little more expensive, pretty cottages all enjoy the same wonderful experience/ good breakfast / perfect service provided by Shine and his staff. It is also... More

We stayed at the Sea Shore Hotel in January 2014 and I am still looking forward to get back. The place is just fantastic! We even saw dolphins from the hotel, twice. Once, during breakfast (think of something more luxurious) and another time from the beach. Shine and his crew are very kind and helpful. Unfortunately I had a small... More

This is such a restful and lovely place to stay, I cannot recommend enough. The rooms are spotless and the whole place has a tranquil and calm feel. The breakfast is delicious - enough to keep you full until dinner time and the staff are helpful and friendly. The South cliff is an oasis, yet close enough to the hustle... More

We don't need to repeat the other positive reviews as have nothing to add ...except we found, by chance, a cottage room for ten nights..we were so lucky ..and we came via the only 5 star hotel in Varkala ( don't like to mention the name ) but the sea shore was 500x better. To put this in context we... More

We had a way too short stay of two days, but could enjoy really great service and an unbeatable view on a quieter part of the beach. The location is very nicely set with hammocks all over the place and a beautiful garden. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the beach is well accessible. What is sad about... More

Great location on a cliff with superb sea views especially at sunset. Great cottage rooms with sea veiws, clean, spacious. Friendly and great service. Nice breakfast with fruit salad, fresh fruit juice and sea views. Quiet. You can go through steps to the beach. Highly recommendable.
