Location: The resort is pretty far away (2.5 km) from the main Varkala town, so you have to have your own vehicle or rent an auto if you want to move around. However, it is a short walk from the beach. Food: Food was average. Nothing great to write about especially They could do with some better preparation of the... More

The rooms were fabulous for the price that we paid. Having worked in the tourism industry i was pleasantly surprised by the service that was provided. The staffs were friendly... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and as it was so hot at the beach it was great to be able to laze around the pool in the shade. Quiet, friendly and cheap for a hotel and food was good. Close to beach and cliff tops bars and restaurants.

The pool is big and nice and also has kids option. The service is great, be it Sajid at the reception or the other people around. They also arrange an auto... More

But when we reached there they said all rooms full and they arranged rooms in another sub standard resort near by. The rooms were small ,congested and without any facilities offered in trip advisor or goibibo . they didn't even provided... More

Most of the cases we try our best to explain the things clearly.Unfortunately people do not get what we intend to say and they think that we speak rude and arrogant. You booked through an agent and do not know what facilites are inside your package blankly think that everything is included in that price.We really had a tough time... More

We stayed at Akhil for 9 days in January, and it really was a splurge for our family. And totally worth it! We got a great deal on expedia for a standard room, and breakfast was included. The place is lovely and family friendly. The pool is gorgeous, with tile, and murals of mermaids, and lovely gardens all around. There... More

Just returned from Varkala and Akhil was a great find. It exceeded my expectations. The standard room was large with fan and tv. The bathroom was very modern and everything was really clean. I had a lovely balcony overlooking the beautiful garden. The restaurant did some really nice Keralan meals and breakfast although not included was great and really cheap.... More

We stayed at Akhil in January and we had a very nice moment. The weather was perfect. The attention of the team was very good, and I loved the garden. I loved the song of the birds during the breakfast time, and how the staff was taking care of this place everyday. We also loved the team of the ayuvredic... More

Akhil (used to be known as Preeth some years ago) is about a five minute walk from the beachfront, which is a blessing as the beachfront is crowded and noisy. The rooms are clean and well appointed, the garden beautiful, and the staff friendly and helpful. Several even remembered me from my last visit several years ago. The best bit... More
