Shibu who runs Akshay is the loveliest guy in the world. Honest and trustworthy. His hotel is clean and calm and treats his staff and clients as family. My 3rd visit in last 4 years. Excellent for a long long vacation. The hotel has rooms to suit many budgets. Some rooms have small balconies great for couples and cheap enough... More

My partner and I have been at Akshay for the past two months now. We are most grateful that we will enjoy another month here with the wonderful manager Shibu. He is a great host and he is a fine business manager. Things run smoothly at Akshay. The hotel is very clean--always! The location is just a three-four minute walk... More

Nice hospitality and trustworthy owners and personel. Good location. There is a nice resteurant located as a part of the hotel as well as a ayurveda treatment facility. The place is highly recommendable.

Beautifully kept hotel, almost like a homestay. Shibu is a perfect host, he recommended a place to get our hair cut as well as the more traditional shopping options! The room was very spacious and the balcony delightful. The southern end of the beach is a flat 3 minute walk from the hotel. The restaurant on site served wonderful Keralan... More

We had traditional Kerala and North Indian food. Good taste, clean and value for money. People managing the restaurant were good to talk and friendly. Enjoyed the food all the times. Recommend highly.

I stayed here for 2 weeks and attended the yoga classes in the building also.This place is well run, very clean (even on non-indian standards) and nicely located close to the holy beach of varkala (not on the "backpacker hell" -side that means). In the same building is also a good ayurvedic doctor and a small restaurant, which was very... More

Stumbled upon this place after a 3 hour search around North cliff and black beach for a good place to stay at reasonable prices. It was 1 of the last places I enquired in and I'm glad I did. My girlfriend and I stayed here for 9 nights instead of 2 or 3. She had fractured her ankles before we... More

During my stay in india this was by far the best hotel I stayed in. It's location was perfect as a short stroll away from the famous sacred beach. The hotel it self was flawless. It had various facilities which I can't fault. During my stay yoga classes were going on, on the roof top which was fabulous. After a... More
