I visited this place in july. It was indeed much beyond my expectation. Resort in very near to beach. Cliff is at walking distance from here. Very calm and quiet place to stay at varkala. Recommend this resort for peaceful stay in varkala. Hospitality is appreciable here.

Varkala is a place where you can view the arabian sea from cliffs and this hotel is situated on top of one (not that high though but the view is amazing). The sound of the waves occupy you from the minute you check-in. Keep the windows open at nights and you can get the breeze and sound of the waves.... More

the location is awesome. its on the highest cliff. The rooms are cozy. I felt like sleeping inside a 18th century ship. However i really enjoyed that different ambience. The Villa (matchbox villa) i took was facing the sea and loved the evening view. The best thing i enjoyed is the walk through the cliff. If you come out to... More

We were a group of 6 friends planning a getaway from our mundane routine. As soon as we landed, we were in love with the view. But slowly, as time went by, we realised that there is nothing good about this place. The manager there behaves as though he is doing us a favor. There is no phone in the... More

I had a very bad experience and warning people to be careful on cancellation policy. I have booked via bookings.com in January 2016 three months in advance and they have immediately took 50% of the money from my credit card. When I cancelled 3 months in advance the resort denied to refund the money. Booking.com was not helpful to get... More

They charge according to the location but not to the rooms and service. Rooms are too simple for a "Resort" and the matress very thin and uncomfortable. But the worst thing was the service. There´s always people there but non of them are helpful except for the guy that is serving the food who is the same that is cooking... More

Return visit to Blue Water five years on. Still the location for peace, quiet and views in Varkala. Great to be away for the main area and in a more local setting by the fishermen's beaches. Francis deserves a special mention, as before, always helpful and attentive of guests needs. Breakfasts were lovely sitting in the garden and watching the... More
