We stayed here for one week and it was a great experience. The highlight was the superb attitude of owner Rajesh and his staff, especially Sujith. They went way above what was needed for a satisfactory stay, making it a great one. They helped us out in so many things, including sorting out and Indian Sim for our phone and... More

I stayed at Karthika for a week, and am so glad I chose this place. Rajesh, Sujith and the crew made me feel welcome right from the start, which happened to be a pick up from the airport at 12am due to a delayed flight. From this point on, these guys proved time and again that they were there to... More

I spent three nights at Karthika Plaza Resort. 1km or so away from the helipad and beach, but the owner was always available to drop or pick me up free of charge so not a problem. The main stretch of Varkala is tourists-only and full of restaurants and bars so staying a bit away from it was great. Very calm... More

Have just returned from our third stay at Karthika Plaza and cannot recommend this facility highly enough. Rajesh and Sanjit are a team incomparable in their desire to do everything to ensure our stay included a quality and practical approach to our stay in Varkala. Will certainly be returning next year.
