We were booked at this place for two days. When we arrived the "Hotel" had no record of our booking although we had booked through booking.com. There was one boy on reception but no one else in the hotel, either guests or staff. He could speak little English and when we showed him our booking printout he took us to... More

Fantastic peaceful and safe place to stay. A great hospitality and friendly friendly attitude by managing people makes one to forget that we out of home. A quiet private beach and adjoining area just adds up to joy. Best place for all people for all occasion and for all moods.

Amazing sea facing rooms, a private beach and a very friendly Sarah made our stay a memorable one. The Ayurvedic massages available there were very good. We would definitely recommend this place. Tina & Vijay

The hotel is located a short walk uphill from the main beach which provides for a quieter neighbourhood and more privacy. The ocean view from our rooms on the top floor was stunning! We also enjoyed the large balkonies with comfortable seating (though we regretted that the fans on the balconies didn't work). My room (a single room) was rather... More

Selected the hotel after some research and have no hesitation to say that it is one of the best places to stay at Kovalam. Next to the lighthouse, the rooms per se are ordinary but with private balconies and a view of the ocean. A semi private beach is great for solitude and quiet reflection. They have no restaurant or... More

We stayed there for 2 weeks and enjoyed every minute of it. Hotel is clean and staff is very helpful and accommodating! I requested to change a mattress in our room and it was... More

We stayed in Varma Beach Resort for three weeks in February. It's a charming hotel, ideally located just few minutes walk from Kovalam beach promenade. Hotel has access to the small private Lighthouse beach, which is absolutely incredible. No crowds, clean beach and water, picturesque sunrises and sunsets. All rooms in the hotel are ocean view. We occupied the top... More

We had a large top floor room with king size double bed, fridge & nice new air con. Bathroom had a new shower head and was very powerful with plenty of hot water. The best thing about this place apart from the very friendly staff & the quiet location is the balconies with a fab rocking chair with rocking stool... More

We had an enjoyable stay here a few weeks back. The resort is situated at a nice location with the rooms having cool scenic sea views. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Though there is no restaurant, they provided us with complimentary tea/coffee. Free wifi was also provided. They have a nice private beach where there are nice strong... More
