Palm tree heritage is the best hotel you can get in the tariff they charge. Excellent rooms filled with retro/vintage/heritage aroma. The most amazing part of this resort is the private beach, you can hear the sound of waves from inside your rooms itself. On top of that they make an arrangement of candle light dinner every night irrespective of... More

I stayed here only for a night on New Year's eve and the resort is very charming. The people here and in all of Kerala (as far as I was concerned) are a friendly bunch. Regardless of whether they understand you or not, they go out of their way to accomodate your needs/wishes. The food was ok-ish in the resort... More

The trick to make the best of any good place is to visit in the off-season and even better is to travel on weekdays. Awesome discounts, less crowd, better food. The location of Palm Tree heritage is its USP; right on the beach, with a view of the cliff. Gopal, who leads the hotel-team is helpful, very good to have... More

Dear reviewer you do not explain what the pollution consist of. Palm Tree resort is an eco-friendly hotel and does not pollute the Arabic Sea. It would be of great help if the responsible for this review could contact the hotel and explain what kind of pollution it was so this confusing information from the writer could be clarified. Or...

So I researched for a year to find a nice beach property in Varkala. Palm tree is fine for travelers from abroad who want the authentic fishing village feel . If you are a well traveled , demanding Indian looking for a quiet place with truly great food , this place is to be avoided. The place IS BASIC. The... More

Palm Tree Heritage was the final stop for what had been an amazing tour of Kerala and it didn't disappoint. The bungalows are beautiful and having access to the private beach was a definite plus! Although a short ride away from the main cliff, it is easily accessible and perfect to get away from the crowds.The staff are so fun... More

A lot for relaxed then stayin on the cliff. And no need to trek all the way down the cliff to have a swim. It's also a black sand beach.... More

The best thing about the resort is its location. Simply in the middle of no where. Awesome location and breath taking view. I stayed here from 13-15th December and it was memorable 2 days. Mr. Babu the MD is a very humble person, very helpful. The staff behaviour is just too good. Thanks Mr. for the great stay you...

This is a relaxed and informal hotel. We stayed in one of the honeymoon suites despite being married for many years! It was a lovely suite with a big bedroom and a bathroom of almost the same size. Comfortable bed and ample clothes hangers which seems uncommon in India. We never did work out which switches operated which lights as... More

Went to Varkala back in October for both mine and my boyfriend's birthdays. We stayed at Palm Tree Heritage and were treated like royalty. Everyone went out of their way to make up feel relaxed and spoilt. The setting is also to die for - dinners on a candlelit beach hello! Our room (one of the new cottages) was great... More
