This is a good hotel strategically located near taxi stand and close to beach as well. Room was good and with a big balcony as well. A nice garden for morning tea n breakfast. Ayurvedic hospital is also nearby only and beach market and restaurents too.

We visited Sanctum Spring Beach Resort in July 2016. It is located right on the helipad, just 1 min walk from the chain of restaurants like InDa Cafe, Coffee Temple etc.. July is a off season as it is monsoon time, so the entire hotel was almost empty. We were put in a corner room on the first floor,right next... More

We stayed at the smelly, musty, unhelpful Eden Garden and were very pleasantly surprised to find this gem of a hotel on our walk to the North Cliff. The staff was friendly and helpful and helped us find an amazing yoga instructor and Ayurveda clinic. We were so happy to stay here and even extended by 1 more night. The... More

Dear Mam, Greetings from The Sanctum Spring Beach Resort. Thank you and we value your great comments. Unfortunately the choice we have made at Cherthala was wrong and we have taken note of the same and will be cautious in future as well. Once again we feel happy that you had a good time with us and we look forward... More

This hotel is very beautifully located on the helipad giving an unobstructed view of the blue sea and the horizon. Staff is helpful and kind.. The only drawback is the breakfast. .It was complimentary but as good as nothing with just toast. .butter ..jam..pancakes. .boiled eggs and tea/coffee.. They could offer just a bit more and it will be perfect..... More

I really enjoyed my stay in this hotel. My and my sister arrived at 2am and yet the staff was up waiting for us to check us in. The room was quite nice, the facade of the hotel was beautiful and wifi worked very well. Breakfast was simple yet very nice and freshly cooked just when you seated to eat,... More

Perfectly located 50m from the start of the busy cliff top path (shops, restaurants, hotels, etc) Sanctum Springs is convenient but much quieter than most other hotels in Varkala. Steps to the beach and everything you could need are very close by, and the hotel is very clean and comfortable.

Comfortable and clean. An easy walk to beaches north and south - about 100 yards from the cliff above the sand. Our room had a small balcony with a view of the sea. The staff was helpful (arranged transportation back to Cochi) and attentive. The only detractor was the helipad (no use during our stay) between the hotel and the... More
