Staff was very polite and helpful. They arranged auto for us even when Kerala was closed down due to some political issues. There is a wooden feel to the rooms. Almost all rooms have balconies. Although there were no views of the sea, our room was very tidy and beautiful. I loved the bathroom for its compactness. Towels were also... More

This hotel is set in beautiful gardens and has a lovely pool. The rooms are simple but have nice balconies and are clean and well maintained. Location is great, just a short walk to the cliff. Staff were attentive and friendly.

From the moment that we set foot there we had a homely experience. Friendly staff went the extra mile to make sure that we were comfortable. We arrived very late ate night and the song of birds woke us up the next morning. The beautiful maintained garden with all the trees gave us the experience of paradise. We spent many... More

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
