It's a very beautiful piece of paradise. It's a guest house (I couldn't call it something so cold as a resort) that delivers excellent service with a low key spirit of wanting to make your experience as enjoyable as possible. The rooms are clean, comfortable and the higher-end suites are exceptionally lovely and all for prices that make this the very best value I have almost ever experienced in all my travels. 'taken from guest review'.

Lovely cliff top location with view out to sea and convenient beach access. Comfortable bed and effective AC. The whole hotel was spotlessly clean and well laid out. Just a little tip, if you’re not using it unplug the mini-fridge in the room as it’s noisy and gets very hot on the back making the AC work very hard! Overall happy with our stay, a nice location within walking distance of happening north cliff, but with the peace and tranquility of the south area of the beach.

Just spent an amazing month at Seashore Resort. Shine, the owner, Phillip, the Manager and his team were extremely welcoming and went beyond the call of duty to make my time there a memorable one. The location is beautiful, the hotel grounds are an oasis of tranquility, the rooms are spotlessly clean. What more can I say? Highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed at seashore for 10 nights, we would have stayed longer if we didn’t have to return home. We had been in Rajasthan for two weeks and it was a fantastic way to complete our holiday. Unwind, relax, enjoy the restaurants, and walk the beach. We preferred south cliff to north it was quiet and you can easily get over to north cliff if you want to soak up the atmosphere there. Phillip, Shane and the two boys were always friendly and helpful, not to mention the beautiful Great Dane! The rooms are clean comfortable and value for money, service is great. Thankyou for having us and making our holiday a trip to remember!

After a 5 hour road trip from Fort Kochi, our great driver calmly dodging trucks,cars, motorbikes, scooters, tuctucs, bicycles, brave jay walking pedestrians and even an elephant, it was a wonderful relief to reach the oasis that is Seashore Beach Resort Hotel..... Location Location Location!!! Set on the cliffs , facing southwest, overlooking the quieter cleaner part of beautiful Varkala beach with steep steps down to the sand....15-20 mins stroll over beach brings you to the North Cliffs for the cafes/ restaurants/ shops, or take a tuctuc for 100 Rupees( just a little over €1) Early morning and later evening, Indian families gather to scatter departed loved ones ashes into the Arabian Sea with flower offerings ... respect.... Staff were welcoming and helpful throughout- especially Dilip...and the super magestic Great Dane who is a real pet was ever present to give a welcome to guests... Our Room, serviced daily was a ground floor deluxe self contained large space with a balcony- ac /ceiling fan / complimentary water/ tea and coffee making - and a small fridge was supplied when we requested it; mosquito nets were also available but we didn’t require them- careful management of not having lights on with open doors kept the blighters out!! Large comfy bed with good bed linen. Large clean bathroom with good shower. One small bar soap and one tiny shampoo supplied- tends to be very typical- bring your own toiletries.. Lovely garden setting with hammocks/ sun loungers / shade/ beach towels all available...3 beautiful peacocks live between several adjoining garden so make regular visits during the quiet part of the day.....! Shaded bar/ breakfast area - breakfast menu included juice/ lassi/porridge/ omlette/tea/ coffee/ toast- staff happy to bring refill coffee/tea... fresh fruit and yoghurt would have been a nice addition ... Such a relaxing quiet location to watch the sun sink and the hundreds of twinkling lights out to sea- fishing boats that fish overnight and bring their catch to shore st dawn- a magical sight.. A word of caution re washing white items of clothing... for some reason they will develop patches of brown... take your white laundry home!!

This small hotel is situated on the top of a cliff with a sweeping lawn to the sea with the most spectacular view. Perfect for those romantic sunsets, We had a ground floor room which was immaculate - cleaned every day with new towels and sheets. We had a lovely "sitting out" area (private) with views out to the Arabian Sea across the lovely gardens. The staff are lovely. Really lovely. It was my husband's birthday during our stay and Dilip and Shine presented him with a lovely carved elephant which is now taking pride of place on our coffee table. South Cliff is quiet but you can take a tuk tuk to North Cliff for 100 rupees where there are loads of stalls and places to eat. However, we often preferred to walk to the little beach between north and South Cliff where there are a couple of beach restaurants and a few stalls and shops right on the beach. Lovely and laid back........
