Varkala Marine Palace is one of my best place I have visited. I have visited this place 3 times. Its has the best view of the beach. Humble, honest and amazing people. Beautiful and clean rooms. Amazing food with the best view. Beach is just 50 steps away.

Varkala Marine Palace scores big on all the counts - location (right by the beach), service (efficient, helpful staff), facilities (spacious, well-lit, clean rooms) and food (a great in-house restaurant). Staying here is more like an experience; you can sit in your room's balcony the whole day and listen to the sea. The beach side is right at the front... More

We stayed here for two weeks over New Year in room 19. This is an upstairs corner room with a large veranda - where spent a lot of time relaxing, watching the birds and mongoose, and listening to the sea! The hotel is a very friendly place and all the guys who run the hotel and work in the restaurant... More

Living in lovely Cochin I must admit Varkala is one of my favorite places in Kerala. I come there least two times each winter to bath in the Arabian ocean, enjoy the sea breeze and laid back atmosphere. For some years I always stayed in the lovely gardens of Bohemian Masala. When that place closed down I looked for an... More

My family, 3 kids me and my wife, spent 9 days at this marvelous place. The combination of a perfect geographic location, close to the swimming areas, nice and comfy rooms and an absolutely great staff, combined with excellent Indian cousine made this holiday a must for India-lovers. Very relaxing indeed. Thanks for a great stay!!! :) Selldén´s from Sweden

This place was excellent and we managed to find a stunning room at the last minute for a great price. Right on the beach so you don't have to climb to the top of the cliff like many pf the other resorts. Restaurant is great and the staff were fantastic. Highly recommended.

This is the very best play to stay in when you visit Varkala! This was our second time here and we really love this little pearl in Kerala! The owner has made some improvement since the last time and it sure was to the benefit of the guests. The new garden looks beautiful! The restaurant is bigger and very beautiful!... More

We had a lovely time at the Varkala Marine Palace. We rented the cottage with 2 adjacent rooms (room no. 12 and 12a) for 4 days over Christmas. The manager arranged a pick up from Trivandrum airport by taxi for us (2000 rupees) - everything worked out perfectly. When we arrived we were expected with candles burning on our balcony.... More

We stayed here over Christmas, and after staying in the cheapest accommodation for the past few months, this was bliss. The guys are friendly, helpful and attentive, the rooms are comfortable, mosquito proof, and the bed was super comfy, and the ability to walk out to the beach in one minute is unbeatable (no walking up and down the massive...
