One of the smaller resorts in Varkala, but this adds to its charm and intimate feel which made it very easy to meet some other residents at breakfast and get to know them. The staff are friendly. Rooms are well looked after and offer decent value for money. All windows have reflective panelling so you can see out but others... More

Great location as it is right between the two beaches, extremely helpful staff and manager, though we have to shout out every time we have to reach them, but again, they are always around. Newly renovated property so rooms are clean and in good condition. It's on one end of the cliff, so be prepared for long walks on the... More

My sisters and i went during off season and that has its perks and flaws. There were no guests other than us.He arranged a room where we could all stay together and have our sister time. We really enjoyed the swimming pool. Special thanks to Mr.Anoop for having cleaned out the pool especially for us.
