This is a very good accommodation option close to the beach and restaurant area (7min walk). It seems to be family-friendly, as we saw many European families with their children playing at the pool. It also features an Ayurvedic Clinic, offering massage and other treatments by professionally trained staff. They follow the rules of no cross-gender massage so if you... More

We visited Varkala from the 13-15 Dec (pretty much peak season), and were pleasantly surprised by our stay at the resort. Ok, so without beating round the bush, I'm going to go to the Pros and Cons PROS 1. The location is mind blowing - just a two minute walk from the beach road, and just secluded enough to give...

This is a beautiful place to stay. Located just a short walk to the esplanade along the cliff overlooking Varkala beach, it features lovely manicured, tropical grounds with a big pool, a very good restaurant, friendly staff and clean rooms. We saw three rooms here: first a non a/c one which we didn't stay in once we felt how hot... More

This place has a great range of room options at all different prices, something for everyone. Our room was a bit small and poky, but comfortable enough in the end. The swimming pool is fantastic and it is just a short stroll the the beach.

My friend and I stayed at Akhil Beach Resort in November this year and were very nicely surprised! We opted for an AC room, although we could have just got away with a non AC as there is a fan in the room also, and it wasn't that hot when we stayed. The location is fantastic. It's literally a 3...

Akhil Beach Resort is a great place to stay for a few days. It is set within a beautiful green and peaceful garden. The staff is nice and helpful and the rooms are great! We had booked one cottage and one room in the main building. Both were very comfortable with perfectly modern-European standard bathrooms and an amazing balcony to... More

When nine demanding tourists turn up to be spoilt in every manner, this place knows how to cater for it. The rooms are very comfortable & have all the amenities needed. We stayed at the pool view rooms, which had floor to ceiling Windows's all along with nice views of the pool. Some of us were in the garden view,... More

A beautiful hotel, nice big pool, we stayed in a big garden view cottage with big bedroom, bathroom and dressing room. Out plan was to stay 3 nights however checked out after one night and reason was poor food quality, taste and service. We went to the restaurant at 8 pm. Placed the order for food and wanted to eat... More

I visited Akhil beach Resort in November 2014. I took a Non AC room, which was perfectly ok for this time of the season, we were not feeling hot even though there was just a fan. The room was not very big, but enough for 2 people. On the other hand the bathroom is pretty spacious. There was 24h hot... More
