To tell the truth the pictures in their advertisement are waaaay better than the actual place (that seems to be the common thing in india) I am with a tour so we didn't get a say on the hotel but compared to other indian hotels this is actually really nice. Rooms are clean even though the sheets are stained with... More

Cottages are quite spacious (value for money), had ample space for the entire group to interact and enjoy after coming from the beach. It is right in front of the black beach thereby providing an amazing beach view. The only negative thing about the place is the quality of food, not worth it at all. Hope they will improve on...

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

The location of the resort is excellent.... It's right on the cliff top in front of the sea.... I had opted for a deluxe sea facing room with common balcony.... You may spend nice time itting on the balcony with sea view.... The resort is right on the beach & you can hear sound of sea waves at night.... The... More
