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

We were so tired, sick and exhausted and we were literally the only guests together with just one woman. They took so good care of us, probably felt even more since we were so alone there, and we ordered room service all the time without problems. Only bad thing is, we couldn't go swimming in the ocean outside because people... More

I decided to propose to my girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel during our engagement night. I talked to the hotel manager about a special arrangement to make the night as special as possible. I wanted rose paddles on the bed, champagne in a ice bucket, candles, flowers, chocolate box and a bouquet of flowers. When I came in... More

Stay at Hindustan Beach Retreat was so good. TVs are out dated models and difficult to operate. Food was good. Sea view from our rooms made our stay pleasant. Rooms were clean & comfort to stay. Sleep quality was also good.

We were very happy with our 4 night stay at the Hindustan. It's on a small beach just south of the main cliff beach in Varkala. There were many Hindu priests set up on the beach doing pooja ceremonies. We were there doing Diwali and the ceremonies seemed to peak during that time. It was really interesting to observe. Every...

I spent two days ( 2nd and 3rd October, 2014 ) at Hindustan Beach Retreat, Varkala with my wife and daughter. This hotel with a splendid view of Arabian Sea in front with all its nature and greens on the south cliff, made our Varkala trip memorable. Rooms are perfectly maintained with always smiling and sincere staff members. Food quality... More
