Akhil Beach resort was a perfect choice for our trip to Varkala, The Second we walked in the front gates we felt safe and relaxed. The resort itself isn't directly on the "cliff" but honestly is a 2 min walk down a trail, No big deal there, It was nice being slightly away from the shops and restaurants. Onsite Restaurant...

We complained and were moved that day to another room which was cheaper and just as nice (C24). Staff friendly, good menu and pool is great size or... More

we stayed for 5 nights in February in a garden cottage. The cottage itself is basic but clean and spacious with a separate dressing room and large shower/wet room. The a/c was noisy but much needed. There is no fridge or tea making facilities which is disappointing, however room service provide an excellent pot of tea within 10 minutes of... More

I loved my poolview cottage at this hotel. It was clean and had a small terrace with a chair and a hanging chair. It is a calm and clean place. The pool has to much chlorine I think. After 3 days my hair was bad.. But I did like to swim and sunbath at the pool! It is walking distance... More

The resort itself is lovely. Lovely grounds, excellent food, and chalets that reflect local architectural influences rather than international bland. Now for the downsides : 1) There is no mini fridge in each chalet so chilled water of cocktails, possibly with ice, out of the question. 2) Many properties have 'surround seating' verandas which look lovely but they are too...

Well maintained and clean interiors. Very close to the north cliff. The a.c rooms in which we stayed were a bit cramped, but it has a big bathroom and a sit out too. The food was good. Though it takes nearly an hour to be delivered to your table. There are lots of better options at the north cliff which... More
