I stayed here for 2 nights and I loved this place. Near the black beach, you could hear the sound of the ocean, the rooms were very nice .This hotel is bit more expensive than average but absolutely worth it.

We stayed one night in a normal room and the next two in now of the cottages. I'd say that the rooms themselves were pretty basic, although for the price and the location they were excellent. It was far enough away from the multiple shops and restaurants to mean it was quiet and private, but close enough to mean within... More

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

Stayed here with our kids (12&14) for NY. We all shared a wooden house. The accommodation was one step up from what we had stayed in so far but cost no more. We all share a room - bit of a squash but it worked. Bathroom hot hot water and the room had A/C at no extra cost. Wifi too.... More

We went and visited Varkala for 7 days and started here. The cottages are lovely, the staff are very friendly and the while resort is spotless. The staff are always on hand to help out in any way they can. The beach is within a 2 minute walk and it is a very quiet secluded beach. It is at the... More

We went on as a big gang of 21 members. We had almost booked 8 rooms but were alloted 7. We really had a great stay. The breakfast bills were adjusted based on our request. The restaurant is right on the beach and it was really wonderfull. The beach was really colourfull and just a step down from resort. But... 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
