Superb location right on the shore of the Arabian Sea. Unlike other reviewers, taking in the culture of the local fishermen bringing in their catch in the morning was an added bonus. The rooms were clean, tidy with ac, however better bug proofing on the doors/windows would achieve a better rating. The staff particularly Arjun were great. Overall a relaxing... More

A good setting at Palm tree resort. Next to the beach very nice location. Food quality needs improvement. The main resort is good but palm tree annex which is 300mtrs from main resort is lacking things like WiFi, power backup. Once its at power with main resort in terms of facilities it will be OK. Overall Varkala is really nice.

We were very late to check in due to vehicle break down. But once we reached the place, all the pain which we had during vehicle breakdown vanished after seeing beautiful see. Palm annex is opposite to the sea. We had a nice view of sunset. Our room had a balcony facing sea side. The manager of the hotel is... More

Amazing location.. all the rooms overlook the sea..very good food..especially the fish in banana leaf...the staff is very friendly and cordial. The restaurant there is at the beach.. with candle light dinners. Our trip to varkala was a short one night trip here... but personally it just wasnt enough.. will be going back there most certainly...

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
