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.

We lived in the cottage for 2 nights and it was by FAR the best experiencein our 3 months in Varkala. Clean big rooms. Wonderful food. Excellent service by mr Shine. And a FANTASTIC garden. You wont be dissappointed!

We stayed (2 adults and a child) in one of the simple rooms. Very nice place. Conveniently located. High on the cliff that offers a lovely view of the Arabian sea. A set of stairs will take you down about 80 feet to the beach, which is pretty much empty, save a few foreigneres. The beach is very clean. The... More

I'm now into my fourth week at Seashore Resort and can honestly say I've enjoyed every minute of my stay here. The location is second to none. Well kept manicured lawns look out over the Cliff to the never ending sea where large birds perform acrobatics while one sits watching in awe whilst breakfasting. The rooms range from humble to...

We went to stay for 3 nights and enjoyed it a lot. The resort is located on the south cliffs - which is the more quiet part of Varkala. There is a small beach just below the hotel, you just have to walk down around 100 steps on stairs in the rocks. Walking distance to the main beach (where the... More

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

This place is awesome! I didn´t want to leave. Enjoeyd spending hours in the sea and relaxing in the wonderful garden. The sea shore beach resort has a fantastic atmosphere. 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
