Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 14, 2013

We stayed in the property for 2 days in November'13. The sea-facing room that we got was a perfect start for our honeymoon trip. There were some problems with a/c on the first day and Mr. Babu immediately shifted us to another room. The quality of food was very good. Boat ride with the fishermen was icing on the cake. Very friendly staff and personal involvement of Mr. Babu made it a very good stay at the hotel.

Fabulous location off the beaten track. Very courteous and welcoming staff. Babu the owner and his crew make this place a very relaxing one. Excellent cuisine - in the evening as well as in the morning. An unbeatable experience is the dinner on the beach. The Ayurvedic massages are superb - thank you Jisha. The deck chairs in the garden meet the requirements from the sun as well as from the shade seekers.

Me & my wife stayed at Palm tree on 28 Nov, 29th Nov' 13 ( 2 nights) & i will say i had mixed feelings. Let me put good points first.
1.The manager mr. babu & staff are very friendly & they try to provide the best service possible.
2. Food is really tasty you have to try fish fry they make.
3. It is located on right on the beach so you can have candle light dinner under open starry sky.
4. It is located little away from cliffs so you are away from all rush & hussle & can enjoy private time.
Now the bad points.
1. Ac was not that strong & ceiling fan was noisy so sleep quality was not good.I travelled in winters still i found it hot then in summars it can be very hot.The reason they gave was "being last resort on the beach they get last electricity so frequent voltage fluctuations ??? !!!".
2. No TV in rooms so for indian tourist that is big problems specially after evening or nights.

I stayed in this resort with my family. We enjoyed very much. The beach is excellent. The most important thing is the sea food they served us, the lobster which we all enjoyed and we never forget. The boys are always at hand to provide the services whatever we need. I take this opportunity to thank the management to make our stay comfortable. Me and my family has decided to visit this place every year and of course to stay this resort.

I booked for a 2N3D stay at the palm tree annex, when i reached the resort they offered me to stay in the honeymoon cottage for half the price since it was unoccupied. A luxurious shack by the beach with the best view of the sea and a huge bathroom, the food is remarkably good, they arrange for candle light dinners by the beach, which is something to be experienced when you are with your loved one. Mr. Babu the owner of the resort is one gem of a man, who values and treats customers like a guest who has come to his home. It's one place which can be recommended to any one without a second thought.

We were very apprehensive when we booked and decided to travel to Varkala and stay at Palm tree Heritage. But once we reached there we understood why it is called a piece of paradise in God's own country. Amazing location of the resort, excellent staff and to top it, Babu the owner of this resort is a gem of a person. Any problem, query or help, he is the person you should look for. Always ready to help and the smile in his face gives you the answer, as to why so many tourists prefer this place.

If you are beach person and love sea food, Varkala is not to be missed! I'm sure like me not many wouldn't have heard much about this rocking beach destination in Kerala, 50 kms from Trivandrum. To note and state, this place was 95% occupied by Foreigners from Europe (East and Central Europe specifically) and seemed to be a hot spot for relaxation, yoga therapy and rejuvenation
Varkala's unusual setting, lazy pace and far away from the hustle bustle of a city makes it perfect for an idyllic vacation. The mountain cliff, the flea market running through the cliff in the evening, the breath taking sight of the azure beach, the sunset are must sees. The quality of sea food available is awesome! Chilled beer, fish fry, sitting on a table by the beach, was just perfect.
If you wish to savour and enjoy the above, highly recommend a stay at the Palm Tree Heritage. There are various options to stay by the beach but Palm Tree Heritage would definitely rank one of the best. The room we stayed was clean, spacious, the washroom was the biggest I ever saw! The food (especially sea food) excellent, the staff prompt on service.Special mention for the owner Babu, who was kind and courteous and made a genuine effort to keep his guests in best order.
I would love to visit again in the near future along with friends and family.

Room Tip: Its a single floor (ground) property by beach, any room is good to stay
