We visited Varkala in August 2016. Weather was good. It drizzled/rained on all mornings till 8/8:30. Thereafter, it was suitable to go out. The resort is very comfortable one and strategically located. It was a pleasant stay and the restaurant was very, very, very good and accommodating. View from the restaurant is a million dollar one. On the flip side,... More

This review is for the Standard Rooms. This resort looks really nice from the outside. The locaion is awesome and they have a nice restaurant too. But the rooms suck. The beds look like cheap hostel beds. Not at all comfortable. They do not have even have a wardrobe. The room was dirty and was not cleaned before we checked... More

The beach resort is decent if one wants to go with family.The rooms are decently sized Vs other resort rooms at similar price. The location of this resort is awesome. If visiting for the first time, recommended stay at this resort (sea view only). The best things about the resort: 1) location 2) room size is big Vs what other... More

The place has a good ambience from outside but interior is so mundane. Rooms did not have shelves or glasses. The ambience inside does not much up with its exterior. There arent any blankets or towels either. Food is ok ok. The rooms are overpriced.

You have to walk every time to restaurant because restaurant phone was not working.Spa services were shut down too..We paid more than 11k for the rooms but it was... More

The lovely setting of this little café atop a cliff facing the sea makes it one of the best tourist spots - you can watch the sunrise, the sunset, the advent of storm clouds over the ocean and a whole lot of natural sights, sitting in this little restaurant facing the sea. The place has two deck, an upper deck... More

You would surely love the stroll on pedestrian walkway along the seashore. This is the kind of place where u can sit for hours with no special... More
