We stayed here for 2 nights. Our room was excellent, very big with magnificent views of the beach. Just a few minutes walk to the beach and we could see all the religious activities that happens in the mornings from our room. Staff are very helpful especially Shyam and Sameer. Dinner that we ordered was very nice. Breakfast does not... More

Stayed here in April during our trip in Kerala. Hotel was a modern building with elevator, rooms were well furnished with air conditioning and usual facilities. Our balcony was small with cushions provided - these did need to be removed when leaving balcony due to large number of pigeons, rooms and balcony cleaned daily. Restaurant was ok, with a variety...

Our room was excellent, plenty of space, clean, good bathroom, large comfortable bed and views of the beach and pool. Wifi was free but, as normal in Kerala it seems, not very fast! Food in the Restaurant was excellent, although most of the Staff did not speak good english. As I don't speak any of their languages I can't really... More

Since, I was not able to find a separate page for the restaurant to review, I had to put up a review in this page. The fact that this restaurant gains any brownie point is the the beautiful view where one can see and hear the lashing of waves all around here. The praise stops here since the food served... More

I booked this hotel as part of my honeymoon trip to Kerala and I booked a suite here for three days. But I was disappointed when I entered the room. Room was very old fashioned, although quite big. I would not recommend to book Honeymoon suite here. But still this hotel is the best bet, if you want to stay... More

Excellent hotel Nice beach view and good centralised AC rooms with lot space and over all value for money . The best beach resort to say that you feel like a stay in the shore it self. Watch the sunshine and then enjoy the moon light falling in the waves at night sitting in the balcony. I have added my... More

After a terrible night in Samsara resort on the other side of the cliff, Hindustan was AC heaven. We stayed for 6 nights and there was not a single issue. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were spacious and had a great view of the beach and sunset. Very homely for a resort and breakfast on the... More

This is the second time I've stayed at the Hindustan in Varkala. The room was clean and breakfast was included, which was filling and excellent. The staff was always courteous and helpful. The pool is clean and refreshing; I particularly enjoyed staying poolside and taking breaks to go to the beach, swim in the ocean and then come back. My... More
