“A peaceful and family friendly paradise!”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

We stayed at Palm Tree Heritage for three days in early January and it was not nearly long enough! Babu and his staff were wonderful, before and during our stay. They helped organize a houseboat cruise and taxis to and from the airport. We were welcomed so warmly upon our arrival, showing us immediately to our rooms without the usual hassle of checking in and filling out paperwork. Everything about the place invites you to relax, from the beautifully carved private porches outside each room, to the quiet beach and relaxed restaurant. Smiles abound and you immediately feel you are among friends. Watching the fishermen (and helping haul in the nets, if you want) is a daily highlight, and a candlelight dinner of fresh fish on the beach tops it off. The resort is just far enough away from the busy, touristy North Cliff, but still within an easy walking distance if you want to visit the shops and restaurants. We will definitely come back someday, thank you Babu!!

Room Tip: We had the family room nr 1, which was spacious, with two bedrooms and a very large bathroom, nicely...

I was not prepared for how beautiful Pal Tree Heritage is and immedietly regretted only having booked two nights there! It is right on the beach and the staff are lovely! As they knew we were on Honeymoon our room was decorated with beautiful flowers when we arrived and they went out of there way to make our stay special. A major treat for my husband was the morning fisherman and it really was a sight to behold or join in as he did! The restaurant on the beach is also lovely, the food was delicious and always readily available. Varkala is an easy walk along the beach and cliff but it is so much nicer to be staying slightly away from it all at Pal Tree Heritage, I really hope to visit again one day and stay for longer.

After spending a week in the north, it was incredible to arrive at a place with so much serenity. The staff were simply incredible. They all were so friendly and they knew how to be helpful without being intrusive. The location is fantastic. Right on the beach but an easy walk to the Cliff. Its the perfect place to happily do nothing...

Room Tip: I would recommend having a massage at their ayervedic centre...

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.
