I can not recommend Palm Tree Heritage enough. We have just returned from 3 weeks in Kerala where we spent 8 nights at Palm Tree Heritage. The location is perfection - great beach for swimming and watching the local fishermen a stones throw from your room and only a walk away from the more "touristy" but fun Varkala Cliff. The rooms are beautiful - gorgeous Keralan carved wood furniture with the BEST bathrooms we had on our whole trip! Babu, Gopal and ALL the staff could not be more helpful and friendly. We are already working out when we can return!

We stayed at Palm Tree Heritage for 6 nights over New Years. Even after reading all the excellent reviews, everything about this place exceeded our expectations. The location is perfect - a beautiful clean secluded beach, away from the bustle of the cliff but within walking distance. The rooms are beautifully furnished, cleaned daily, and overlook well kept gardens and the sea. We ate at the restaurant for every meal, especially enjoying beautiful seafood dishes on a candle-lit table by the sea. Finally, the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, even hosting a beach new years eve event with Indian music, dancing and drummers. Overall, we had a fantastic stay. It really is a little bit of paradise in India.

The hotel is set beautifully in a little bay.

The on site restaurant is reasonable priced with views of the sunset.
A fantastic restaurant is 2 minutes walk away.

The staff are truly fantastic. They will go out of their way to help you.

I cannot thank them enough.

I would recommend Palm Tree Heritage to everyone. The staff are super friendly, helpful, kind and do their upmost to make you feel at home and enjoy your stay. The food was amazing, the location and view was beautiful and peaceful, as well as being moments away from other amenities such as the Cliff (fantastic for shopping and gifts). The staff are extremely knowledgable and helpful and can always recommend something fun to do locally or out of the area. They are so helpful, they even helped for us to rearrange flights and sort out taxis.

The rooms are very spacious and comfortable as well as clean with good air conditioning and other facilities. The entire site if well maintained and very pleasant. The heritage is beautifully constructed so that you always have a pleasant view of the Arabian Sea and many memorable sunsets.

We will definitely be back!

Thank you to Babu and his team for such a wonderful stay!

Babu and Gopal, were excellent hosts. From the time we made the booking until our departure they did everything possible to make our holiday the best ever.
A driver was at the airport to meet us and Gopal greeted us on our arrival at the resort.
Babu arranged a Christmas Eve trip on the backwaters for us and our two adult daughters. The girls were not staying at Palm Tree but this was not a problem. The staff treated them as guests and were very friendly.
We can highly recommend Palm tree Heritage to couples and families. The location is quiet and very peaceful. The beach is sandy and good for children to play on but the sea is not good for swimming for other than experienced swimmers.

Room Tip: Best rooms are on the beach. It was great to wake up each morning and sit on the terrace to watch th...

Me and my girlfriend stayed in a superior suite for three nights when we arrived in Kerala. We wish we would have stayed longer because this place was great.
We loved it for many reasons. The location, right on the beach and overlooking the arabian sea were we spotted dolphins on our first day. The beach was private and the water was very clear and warm (in early december).
And the people working there were great to. The food was also fantastic (best fish curry ever).
The guy running it, Babu, is also great at arranging trips and has allot of great advise on how to make your trip around Kerala even better. We were on a tight schedule and wanted to se as much as possible so he arrange for a driver and helped us book some hotels he could recommend. Every place he recommended was great!

If you already made your packpacking trips a few years ago and want to stay in a more comfortable place, but still have everything in walking distance, this is perfect!

You´ll love it to.
