We found this place by accident, for which we first booked in another resort and was a confusion with booking and we had to look for another place. We found Sanctum spring, we spent 3 wonderful days. Is very close to the sea and to the area of markets and restaurants where you can find fresh fish and rice terraces,... More

The room was very clean, well maintained with nice decor, Excellant bathroom, lots of hot water. We had a balcony with very nice easy chairs and a view of the... More

Sanctum spring is a very nice hotel facing the helipad which is a great location if you like to be close to the restaurants on the cliff but you do not want to hear the music coming from the bars. We stayed in a large suite which had a sitting area with flat screen TV and a fridge to keep... More

Nice hotel nice staff great location on helipad Rooms quite small but balcony nice with great views Breakfast disappointing as told that the main breakfast is for the yoga people which was a bit awkward Rooms clean towels provided but you can get a better hotel with pool at better price if you look around

Hotel is ideally located right at the helipad, just a minute walk from the cliff top restaurants. The young staff are friendly and helpful, and the rooms are bright and clean. As you would expect for the price there is constant hot water, effective aircon, decent furnishings, tv - but no safe. Breakfast was ok - eggs to order, fruit,... More

The Sanctum Spring beach resort qualifies to be a real good hotel. Our stay for two days at very clean and up to date rooms were pleasant. Just across the 50 metre helipad space starts the Varkala cliff market with rows of restaurants and artefacts shops. Since they dont have room service, like in Europe, my suggestion to management would... More

We spent nine nights here with our family. The rooms are Clean and the bathrooms are very good. We attended a great cooking-class. The location is very good just directly by the helipad, about 100 meter away from all the restaurants on the Cliff. The restaurant in the hotell has GREAT and tasty food. However it takes a long time... More

We had a 4 hour cookingclass with the best chef on Sanctum Spring resort. What a great experience to cook 7 different indian vegetarian dishes. We highly recommend this, and so the breakfast and the good service from the staff. Malin and Thomas from Luleå in Sweden.

We stayed here with couples and friends. It's an excellent location. Mr Anil and Shree were always around to assist. Letting us use their laptop when needed. Rooms spotless, and beach towels everyday. The location is superb. They even gave me rides to town to get food and some traditional attire. Nothing was a problem. Breakfast was limited. But we...
