The hotel grounds were beautiful, with amazing sea views and well kept manicured lawns. The only thing that stops me from giving this hotel a 5 out of 5 is that it is missing a swimming pool! Although this didn't really matter because we were much too busy as we only had 2 nights there. If we were there for... More

Family of four stayed two nights in sea facing villas (two villas) (which were not actually sea facing). Decent large rooms. Good location near the small black beach (though quite far away from the main Varkala beach). House keeping not upto the mark. No Drinking water (not even a jug& glass), no television (in one of the rooms). Rooms not... More

We ended up at Black Beach, which is right next to Woodhouse resorts because the latter gave our booked room to someone else. The rate for the room was twice as at Wood house and neither hotel staff offered to make good on the difference. The outside of the big, clean room was nice, but the inside was antiseptic and...

We adored this heavenly location and beautiful new resort overlooking the cliff and best beach in Varkala. The rooms are big and clean with lovely sea and lawn view balcony. The manager and staff were kind and helpful. There is an added bonus of cable TV and free Wi-fi for when you feel like staying in. The green lawn overlooking... More

Time of Visit - Mid September; It was the end of Monsoon, when it rained the rooms would drip {It was negliable}. View from the room was excellent, had specifically asked for Sea Facing villa, which was arguably the most closed cabin from the sea. In Night if you could listen to the waves if you could ignore the AC... More

the hotel is on a great spot on top of the cliffs of varkala. we loved our stay there, staff was friendly and the room was fine. the price was a bit high but it might be because we booked too early. all in all though it's a good place to spend some days in wonderful varkala
