We stayed for couple of weeks in a wonderful room with a comfortable and wide bed and nice balcony, from there you can watch the sea and fishermen and listen to the sea rustling. We really enjoyed our stay there. At hotels wonderful restaurant we enjoyed Asian cuisine but for breakfast an excellent oatmeal porridge. Near the hotel there is... More

The best thing about the resort is its location. Simply in the middle of no where. Awesome location and breath taking view. I stayed here from 13-15th December and it was memorable 2 days. Mr. Babu the MD is a very humble person, very helpful. The staff behaviour is just too good. Thanks Mr. for the great stay you..

I don't usually leave reviews on TripAdvisor, but I felt compelled to do so given my experience at Palm Tree. For context, the Palm Tree has 3 or 4 different component hotels, one of which is the annex. The all share the same umbrella common facilities (restaurant, service, etc.). The service is truly outstanding -- usually, this doesn't really move... More

First of all: Odayam beach is the best place to be in Varkala! Palm Tree Annex is located next to the sea and just a short walk away from the restaurant (where they serve excellent food) and the beach. The place is clean; our room is cleaned every day. The staff is friendly, welcoming and charming (theres staff available 24... More

If you want a room with a view, by the beach and next to the best restaurant in varkala for a resonable price I can recomand Palm Tree annex. Relaxing place with the best beach. Good service, nice people, best swimming and a calm style.

The hotel is located at a quiet and separate part of beach but located quite close to the market.The property is good but the best part is the behavior of the staff and the management.They make you feel welcome, inquire about your needs and are always attentive.This kind of beach experience is rare in India and mostly foreign tourists visit...

I stayed In Palm tree Annex for 4 nights, and i wish i could stay longer! The rooms are very clean and spacious, and the staff is very welcoming and helpful. It's right on the Odayam beach, very secluded and quiet i could relax there real good! It's a much better choice then staying on the Cliff side. The restaurant... More

Annex is beautiful and well worth the little bit extra. The beach is private and i found lots of amazing walks up and down the cliff. If you want social take a left if you want quiet beautiful cliffs scattered with smiling faces and animals take a right. The staff were super helpful and accommodating to all my needs and... More

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.
