The Palm Tree Heritage is really an exceptional property. My husband and I stayed there for a week in January 2014 and we were truly impressed by the lovely setting, the exceptionally nice rooms, but above all the hospitality. Gopal, the manager, took care of us in every respect. We were missing home-cooked food and he made special arrangements for... More

I have discovered Palm Tree Heritage during the monsoon and it was great. I was there with my wife. Such a nice place, with beautiful surroundings, great heritage Kerala-style rooms (I love their private terrace), and a well oriented restaurant on the beach. The place is a some distance from the main cliff and tourist area, but a 10-minutes walk... More

If you are in Varkala beach, this is a great place to stay. The staff is very attentive and responds to any issue very quickly (originally the lights in my room were not working). Food is good for seafood lovers (get the fresh catch of the day) and vegetarians alike.

We stayed here for 5 days and loved it! Our bungalow had a beautiful view of the beach and we were treated with delicious food everyday. The staff were excellent - they went out of their way to ensure our stay was the best, even waking us at 1:30 to watch the soccer and the cook invited us into the... More

I stayed here for two days and had managed to find them through tripadvisor, and i was amazed to see how true it was to nature and the amazing feedback it had. Rooms were spacious and very clean and so was the bathroom. Gopal and Babu are by the far the most courteous hoteliers i have seen who were always... More
