The best thing that this place has going for itself is a good set of staff. Saroj was a great reason why our stay was so comfortable. While we were an absolute last minute booking he treated us with utmost care and sincerity which was lovely. we stayed in a non ac cottage which was comfortable as the weather was... More

The resort is behind a stone line, which makes access to the beach impossible. They have a beach just 30 meters wide, with dirty black sand. The sea is extremely choppy, so as it is impossible to go into waters. Whole Varkala has no beach line where you may take bath. Red flags everywhere...stone-lines...choppy sea...100% places. Food is pathetic, if... More

I had a great stay at the Palm Heritage. The location is good as you are down at sea level by a small and fairly private beach. Varkala itself is an easy and very pleasant 15 minute walk along the coastal path. This makes it very accessible, but far enough away that you can avoid the bunched up hotels and... More

Myself and my partner stayed her last week on or travels up the west coast of India, and I must say this was the best place we stayed the whole trip. When we arrived (at 3am) we were brought to a lovely air conditioned room. It was very tidy and clean with a small balcony over looking the sea. When... More

I booked this resort after reading reviews on trip-advisor. (May-2016) I traveled here with my big family which included 8 adults and 5 kids. First thing first the resort is on Odayam beach and not on Varkala Cliff. For us that worked even better because this resort has a beach to its own and Varkala Cliff is walk-able. We stayed... More

A group of five of us stayed in Palm Tree Heritage for 3 nights and had a brilliant time. The staff went above and beyond to ensure that everything was great for our stay and really made the trip fantastic. The rooms were lovely, very clean and the views from the terrace were unbelievable. The resort has a private beach... More

I visited the place along with my wife (we were on our first trip after marriage) on july 21. We stayed at their honeymoon bungalow. The room was excellent with all necessary facilities including wifi connectivity. Food and room rent was reasonable. The ambience was the best part. The interiors were neat, well maintained and had furnitures and art works... More
