By arriving varkala, we exactly did not know where to find good hotels and resort. but by the help of local people and rickshaw driver we managed to find palm tree heritage resort. our experience was great. peace of mind, complete relax. atmosphere was too good. food was awesome. staff is very polite and friendly with tourist. candle light dinner, near to beach was unforgettable experience. those who wants to just relax, relax and relax, i will recommend this resort.

Room Tip: i will suggest sea facing cottages .

We spent 8 days in Palm Tree Heritage, and it really was a great place to stay. Breakfasts and dinners with candles on the beach, excelent seafood ... We enjoy running and had the pleasure to run along the sea direct from the hotel. The fishermen community just in front of the hotel was a unique opportunity to share their daily life (great pictures to take!). Airport transfers and Houseboat booking in the Backwaters were also great services we appreciated there. For those who are also interested in Kerala shopping, the Varkala Cliff Tourist Market is just 10mn walking distance. Net-net: a quiet and excelent place, very well located, with excelent comfort level for a good price, what could we ask more! We clearly recommend this place and will for sure book it again if we plan another trip to Kerala.

Room Tip: All rooms seem equally comfortable, with private balcony facing the beach.

I stayed here with a group of friends and we thoroughly enjoyed the stay. They have access to the beach right in front of the resort and we could enjoy it even at 3AM!!! On the right side you get a very beautiful, less crowded cliff with amazing view. There was a pond with lotus flowers. We were fortunate to see the dolphins too. The staffs are friendly, reasonably good food.
Positives: location, spacious rooms, beach
Negatives: less parking space (if you are driving)

We stayed at Palm Tree in November/December 2013 following recommendation of our guide and this was an excellent address.
The location is a bit remote from Varkala beach but this is not negative because we were far from the crowd and could enjoy a semi-private beach which is ideal for relaxation.
The room was very clean and spacious and comfortable. Beds are a bit too soft though.

I'd like to thank all the staff who were really friendly and helped to make our stay very enjoyable.

If you are looking for an excellent address in Varkala I would definitively recommend Paml Tree Heritage !

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.
