I stayed here for 2 nights in Garden view cottage. The service and hospitality is good at the resort especially room service is faster than restaurant .The staff is very helpful. The views in the resort are just breath taking, lush green with very well maintained place. Regarding I was little disappointed since I am a vegetarian with a family... 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

We stayed in Akhil Beach Resort for 3 days in Jan 2015. The premises is well maintained and very close to cliff. Though we had booked A/C room we never used it since the climate was very pleasant so you can save few bucks by booking Non A/C room. Pros 1. Nice swimming pool 2. 24 hour hot water 3.... More

I stayed here for 2 weeks in January and couldn't fault it; lovely room with view over the coconut palms and swimming pool beyond; friendly staff and beautifully maintained gardens. All well looked after and high standards of cleanliness - would definitely come back as it' s so well placed for the beach and the cliff shops and restaurants.

This is the best place I'very ever stayed in India. A large pool and beautiful garden...amazing.The guys around were cool with good sense of hospitality.Here I participated in a healing session called Areiki. It was a new experience of relaxation. Nirvana Yoga was very effective.

We stayed here for 17 days in January----the third time in 4 years---- and once again found it a great place from which to enjoy Varkala. Our de- luxe cottage was very comfortable and cleaned regularly-thanks Anil and his staff. The pool was lovely and the grounds maintained to a high standard. The staff here are very helpful and friendly... More

First, I must admit. This is a nice property. However, based on the reviews, you would have thought this was the Shangri-La (it's not). My "stay" began with a yelling match between myself and the guy handling reservations. He was extremely rude and unhelpful. I had hoped when I got there that the front desk guys would be friendlier, but... More
