“Paradise in Varkala”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Ten minutes drive from Varkala city we found this beautiful quiet resort. Very good atmosphere and service, nice personell on a new built small resort beach hotel. Excellent food in the restaurant, especially the seafood. Two minutes walk to nearest beaches and 15 minutes walk to the Varkala beach.

First visit to India has exceeded our expecations so far. After a couple of days we found Samsara Harmony Beach Resort at the Odayam Beach Varkala just north of the famous North Cliff. Nothing like having a nice breakfast or dinner at their restaurant down by the sea, watching the dolphins swim close by og seeing the fishers coming in with their catch. The 8 rooms in the 6 cottages are placed around a nice pool where our children have been spending some time. The cottage, which was cleaned every day, was well equipped with both hot and cold water, air conditioning and fan, and even a small kitchen. And all the staff was very service minded and helpful. Even a trip to the hospital was carefully taken care of by the manager. We give our best recommendations to this beach resort and if coming back to Kerala we will come back here.

I found this delightful place in Odayam after walking the cliff walk from Varkala. What a pleasant surprise to find a place right on the beach with it's own swimming pool. I moved immediately from the congestion of Varkala. Instead of a wall of shops blocking the view and lining the beach walk I had an uninterrupted view of the ocean from my bungalow and from the little restaurant Pergolas, that are almost on the rocks, the sea was all around. The bungalows are well appointed, of generous size and the outside balcony was perfect for gazing at the sea and reading. The ocean is quite rough after a storm and the pool was most welcome. I believe they have only just opened and Wi Fi is coming as is a bigger restaurant. Get to this place before it's "discovered" as i am sure the prices will soar. They could do with some better sign posts to Varkala beach as it's a bit difficult to find by road

Room Tip: They are all good, the front ones have the best view but a few people walk past you occasionally.

This place is great! Beautiful views of the ocean, nice beach, cozy cottages with a large comfortable bed and clean swimming pool with hydromassage and a zone for children. The hotel is located in a quiet place, there are not much people and it's a good place for meditation! In the restaurant, very good food and friendly helpful staff. I had a rest with the child 1.5 years, it was very convenient to put him to sleep in the afternoon in the summer-house by the ocean, he slept for 4 hours! Up to the cliff with its restaurants, shops you can take a ricksha for 10 minutes, for 150 rupees. Ricksha rides directly to the hotel. You can reach to the cliff on the beach in 15 minutes.

We spent our best 5 days during our journey in India in this hotel! It's situated in a beutiful place with it's own beach. The staff is very polite and helpful. The rooms are very clean with a lot of daylight and big balcony. Furthermore it has got a lovely pool. The food is also very tasty. All in all it was wonderful.

Very pretty place, big rooms, very clean. It has a lovely beach not to close to the main beach. Good price, nice pool, walking distance to the village, but also a restaurant directly at the hotel. Lovely decoration and lots of flowers. It was the nicest hotel we had during our holyday in india.
