We went for a larger room which was comfortable with good aircon nice balcony. The basic rooms are a little small. Decore is dated. Whilst our room was quite reasonable there are are no other facilities and no usable public areas other than the breakfast room. Staff were friendly. Breakfast was quite good - fruit, eggs, toast, juice (too sweet)... More

WOW The location is great and the rooms spacious, there is a first class laundry service and more restaurants offering... More

Location is perfect, right off the helipad & super practical to get to both the beach & the shopping/restaurant pathway in varkala. Manager & hotel staff are very nice & helpful. Rooms are nice & comfy, cleaner then most of the places we've been too. And the breakfast is great!

We chose Sanctum Spring Resort after meeting Kumar, the Manager, a charming man with extensive hotel experience around the world. We extended our stay here twice for a total of 12 nights. We had rooms 304 and 303 on the top floor. All rooms... More
