Our first time at the wonderful Karthika Plaza, only there 5 days, wish we could have stayed longer. Rajesh and Sangit are fantastic hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. Taking you to local beaches and restaurants and picking you up on return. Took my brother to the pharmacy regarding swollen ankle and even arranged our rail tickets... More

Generally speaking accomadation on holiday is just somewhere to bed down but, thanks to the efforts of Rajesh, Sangit and the other staff our time spent at Karthika was... More

Rajesh was an excellent host and his staff were always helping and providing lifts to the beaches, even though it's only 15 minutes walk away. The level of hospitality was exceptional, nothing was too much trouble. Rajesh helped us buy and set... More

Karthika Plaza is both a hotel block and a homestay. As the latter, it was excellent especially as we were in the spacious, well-appointed garden-facing villa rooms which contained another small inner room (could be a kitchenette if kitted out) and large bathroom. This facility is in an area of Varkala set back from the cliffs and surrounded by large... More

It is difficult to expand on what other people have said, so in many instances I can only confirm what other reviewers have said & that the the service is fantastic & it really is true that nothing is to...
