Mr Bhasker and Mr Jai are so helpful, and go that extra mile to make your stay as relaxing and comfortable as possible. The beds are really really comfortable, other improvements include the lovely garden complete with sun beds. All the staff are friendly, and the rooms are cleaned everyday to a very high standard. You will not find a... More

Wonderful location, large rooms, with balconies, and if on the front, facing the sea, gardens too. Our room was equipped with tea making facilities and a small fridge, it had a large bathroom, no hairdryer. We personally found our room just too dark, they are typical Keralan style, but even though there were several lights they weren't powerful enough for... More

Dear Betty, Behalf of Varkala Marine Palace team,we thank you very much for your visit and your very progressive feed back. We understand your sensitivity on the darkness of the wooden walls. As the natural texture looks more appealing, we haven't painted them in lighter shade. We would definitely use brighter lights which will solve part of the problem. Also... More

We loved this little hotel ..it was quiet...beds were very comfy...and close to everything. We also loved the restaurant here...and ate here quite frequently.....we recommend it. The sea view rooms on the beach side are simple but tasteful.

This was the third time we visited Varkala and we always try to stay at Varkala Marine Palace when they have rooms available. During the years we have stayed at other hotels in Varkala but nothing compares to Varkala Marine Palace when thinking about accommodation and the the staff. The location is incredible - just a stairway down to the... More

Varkala Marine Palace is perfectly situated at the beautiful Holy beach, not on a cliff as almost all other hotels in Varkala but directly on the beach. This gives you easy acces to the beach, you don't have to climb all the strairs! You are in the middle of Varkala beach with the more busy North Cliff with shops and... More
