This is a good hotel in the northern side of Varkala cliffs. This has both cottages and rooms within its premises. I would not call it a resort but more of hotel on the cliff similar to many others. The services provided are well and adequate for the price point charged. The manager Mr Rahman is a friendly helpful person.... More

Strongly recommended! The surrounding area is very peaceful. Rooms and cottages are very well maintained. Popular with foreign tourists. Management is also very good. Offers free complimentary breakfast. The restaurant which serves the complimentary breakfast has a wonderful view but does not have much in the menu for lunch and dinner.

I suggest this to everyone planning to visit varkala. The view from your cottage is awesome. If you are planning for a relaxing weekend you can choose this one. The rooms are neat. AC's are working properly . Food is not good. Better to find food nearby. Lots of food joints near by. Staffs are helpful.

You get a nice view of sea from your room. Cottages are nearer to the beach, hence has better view. Rooms are good with very basic facilities and AC. This hotel need to improve the number of staffs. We have to wait almost 1 hour at the restaurant to get our complimentary breakfast, however we left without having it as... More

We did not have a reservation and we arrived to find that there was one freeestanding bungalow left. It was above our price so we were about to walk away when the manager came out and gave us a lower price. It is usually very busy at this time of year in Varkala but for some reason this year is...

This was a rare gem of a place, and it made our stay in Varkala absolutely fabulous. We stayed in the first cottage. You can sit out on the porch and enjoy the beach view from here. I think almost all cottages give you a view of the beach, but the first one is right next to it. The black... More

We had 2 heritage cottages, which looked nice on the outside but were characterless, basic and a bit tired inside. The front cottage has a sea view, the rest are arranged behind it so nearly have a sea view. We didn't get on very well with the restaurant. We arrived in the afternoon after a 6 hour journey and ordered... More

The rooms are basic, but cozy. The food since it is made with fresh ingredients, you need to let them know at least 3-4 hours earlier. And all i can tell you is, it is definitely worth the time. So make you order go chill out at the beach or shop, and once you are back hungry and tired..they spread... More
