Palm Tree Annex is situated at a location which you will instantly fall in love with, if you are a beach person. Listening to the sea from morning to night is such a soothing experience. From our room we had a view of the sea. The rooms are pretty decent, have a mini-fridge, hot water etc. but no TV. The... More

We really liked the Palm Tree Annex. The room was large and clean with a fridge but there's no TV. We had one of our best meals in Kerala at the Heritage restaurant and the staff were extremely helpful. Having a balcony/seating area was really nice, but it wasn't the most comfortable place to sit - there's just a marble... More

I have stayed in the Annex three times now. The Annex and the Heritage are being reviewed together as the Annex in merely a detached accommodation and all the services/restaurant are adjoining the Heritage. I stayed for a month during the wet season with a good rate, but as they say, 'you get what you pay for.' Although, the seas... More

If I were rating only on the extremely helpful and accommodating attitude of the staff, this would for sure be a five-star review. As helpful and friendly as we've found people to be everywhere in Kerala, these folks would be number 1. I wish I could say the same for the room. The important thing--it was quite spotlessly clean.

What a great place! We arrived here directly from an international flight and really enjoyed the stay. The staff is terrifically welcoming and the outdoor restaurant located at the neighboring palm tree heritage hotel was very good and reasonably priced. Note that this hotel is away from the main varkala beach and the walk over to the north cliff varkala... More

A friend and I were traveling around Kerala for a number of weeks before coming to Varkala and staying at the Palm Tree Annex. We had both decided we would like to stay somewhere nicer than our previous locations, and were prepared to pay a bit more. However, we didn't need to worry about that. Our room at Palm Tree... More

We stayed three nights in the annex. The room was nice and clean with a hot shower. The Palm Tree Annex is located a bit north of the main beach in Varkala, it takes 15-20 minutes to walk there. It's a nice walk though, with lots of souvenirs stalls and cafes and restaurants on the way. It's also possible to... More

Drifting off to sleep lulled by the waves close by, snuggled under crisp white sheets in Room 202, I feel relaxed and soothed after a day walking and eating on this beach fronting the Arabian Sea. Palm Tree Annex was recommended by my driver ,Kannan, from Coochin and it didn't disappoint. Guests are welcomed warmly, the rooms are spotlessly presented... More
