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

After some initial hiccups which involved downright denial of our reservation of two rooms done via makemytrip and some wait, we managed to check-in to the resort. The rooms were clean and quiet. It was right on top of the cliff and just a lil walk away from the beach. P.S Do make sure that you have confirmed your bookings... More

Also received great deals when availed packages in massages. The location is the best... More

The rooms in this hotel are average but the terrace by the sea is the best in Varkala. It is right by the sea and the views are nice. If you want you can find a shade given by the overhanging palm trees. In the evening there is a refressing breeze coming from the ocean. The hotel is situated in... More

The room we booked was done on a walk-in basis. The management was very very helpful and behaviour of staff and management was great. the property is just getting ready, so is getting there. Needs a few areas of corrections but definitely recommendable. The F&B needs a little hand, though polite, needs expertise and speed. But overlall a great stay... More

This is a simple but tidily maintained property, and the location makes it a wonderful experience. The property extends to the waterfront, where you can look at the sea from the beach chairs placed under the shade of coconut trees. It is a ~2-3 minute walk from the black sand beach which is a small but very clean beach with... More
