The staff were attentive and helpful, including the spa. The facilities were good and the pool lovely and clean. Special mention goes to the Restaurant, the staff and food excellent. The food was far superior than what was on offer at the beach. Would definitely recommend.

I stayed one night while exploring Varkala and found the staff to be exemplary-my booking hadn't shown in their system and the only room they had left was a 2 room cabin, so thats where they placed me. The pool was clean, as was my room. Best part by far was the super comfy bed and soft sheets. :) Breakfast...
