Stayed here for one day varkala visit. Must say that hotel is really good but little overpriced. Rooms are pretty small and clean. Hotel has only 12 rooms with different theme decorations. Hotel offers good food and good service. Beach is at 10 mins walk from the hotel.

Excellent property and very courteous staff. Stayed with my extended family. Take the ground floor rooms. Even the first floor ones are good though. Did was just about average but with an excellent smile. Felt that we were at home.

Great stay, lovely people hosting, beautiful pool and nice big, clean room! The most comfortable bed ever!!! We stayed during off season when everything was shutting down but this hotel treated us like it was the height of season. Definitely recommend this place... X
