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

I actually have stayed both standard and suite rooms in different occasions. I must say they maintain the rooms very well. Bathrooms are clean and rooms are comfy. Added bonus is the view from the rooms which face the sea. I liked the rooftop restaurant too. Food might differ on personal taste, but it is pretty decent. Complimentary breakfast is... More

Had a good stay here. Rooms offer nice view to the sea, and are clean . Staff is good. Food is ok, but you will get more options at the beach shacks. Hotel is at the end of the lane , and just few steps away from the beach.

It was just brilliant, staff was friendly and services of the hotel was excellent.This was a great place to stay.

In looking through travel guides, they all tended to point to this resort for having the best view. I have to concur. It's lovely hearing the waves crashing and waking to sea views. I watched the locals do their early morning pujas to Vishnu without interruption and am pleased by the general ambiance of this resort. The staff were lovely... More

We visited Varkala in Dec 2014. We were undecided whether to stay at Gateaway or, Hindustan beach retreat but decided on the later as it was not very costly. It was bang on the beach and our room was a clean, spacious and with a balcony with view of Arabian Sea. Verkala beach was 200 mtrs walk and it was... More

We could not fault this hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful, the amenities up to standard and the views wonderful. It was great to be able to be sitting in our window overlooking the beach and the religious ceremonies knowing we were three steps from restaurants, the beautiful beach and clear, clean waters. This was a great place to... More
