Paradise Beach Resort
Ranked #29 of 98 Specialty Lodging in Varkala
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 16, 2012

We stumbled across this hotel and we are very glad we did. Paradise Beach resort is one of the best budget hotels we came across during our 1 month trip to South India. The rooms are basic but clean and great value and location.

The manager Unni really makes this hotel stand out, he was incredibly helpful organising taxis (without adding on a commission like every other place we stayed) and helping us plan our onward train journey.

I would strongly recommend Paradise Beach Resort.

Stayed here for a week . Rooms are basic and very clean but much more than you need in Varkala as you are out all day! Unni the manager is extremely helpful and goes out of his way for anything and first hotel manager (in 2 months) who doesnt try to make more money. Balconies great too!

we picked this hotel mainly on price as it was very cheap to stay here and was in a fantastic location near the beach. When we arrived the staff were so so friendly and helpful that we felt that we were staying at a much more expensive hotel. Unni told us all the things to see, where to eat and was such a lovely person. It made my trip staying at this hotel and Unni would happily sit down with us with a cup of Chai (which he got for us from an local restaurant) and chat to us. The rooms are basic, but with the beach nearby and a nice balcony we didn't spend much time in it and it has everything you need. if you are looking for luxury this isn't for you but id you are a traveler on a limited budget but looking for a great place to stay then i would highly recommend. Unni told us that he is soon to be taking over as manager and will be starting to serve breakfast when he does which will make this hotel even better.

Room Tip: I would recommend getting a taxi pick up if you fly into the airport as it was a long distance away...

The hostel was a great little place to stay whilst in Varkala. The pickup from the airport was seamless, especially welcome in the rain! The hostel itself is relatively basic but it is certainly all you need as you spend most of your time on the beach or in the many cafe's or restaurants. We learnt that next season they hope to provide breakfast and a few other amenities to guests. What set this hostel apart is how friendly and helpful Unni (the manager was). He made our stay here a delight, bringing us chai and snacks, for free, after our day at the beach and always checking we were ok. He was a delight and was great to chat to and had many recommendations for our stay, however did not try to sell us anything, just advised us. He even declined the tip we gave him at the end. He was a credit to the hotel and I would recommend this place very very highly to anyone. One of the best value hostels that I have ever stayed at.

Room Tip: Getting a room on the upper level with the balcony is a bonus
