Comfortable and clean rooms. There is a shortcut down to the beach, ask the staff to point it out. The TV did not work in my room, but the pool is excellent and right outside your door, with loungers, towels and parasol. Drinks can be served to you poolside. I could get wifi in my room, one of my group... More

The location is not bad though bit of walk to the beach and the helipad area (around 20 minutes walk). There are plenty of resorts / Inns located around this area and some of them are as good as four star hotels and number of them seems pretty run down. Travelers encourage to research thoroughly for resorts in this area... More

We had six very relaxing days here after the hectic scenes of the Thrissur pooram (elephant festival) up north and it was a very welcome break indeed. Set five minutes away from the cliff tops on a quiet back road, Deshadan resort is small and intimate enough to offer unobtrusive and attentive service but large enough to offer excellent facilities...

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.
