“Fabulous honeymoon spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights during our honeymoon trip in Kerala ( May 2012 ). The property was under renovation works then,but never was there any discomfort due to it.Only few cottages near the pool were available and we stayed at first floor cottage. The staff is super friendly.Enjoyed very much..The garden,pool,restaurant etc.. was kept clean every time.Check in & check out was handled smoothly...

Best location for relaxation.Ambience,great interiors,feels good after a stay in the rooms.
I dont know how old the hotel is,but certainly everything from furniture,finishing to fittings all gave the look of being pretty new and luxurious.I really had a pleasant stay in this hotel with my family for a couple of days..

We we're so happily welcomed by the staff, greeted with big warm smiles and everyone made us feel so comfortable after a long, exhausting flight. Unlike some other hotels at the cliff, Akhil is having a good access by road. Receptions guys lead us to a wonderful cottage near the pool.I think swimming pool is the main attraction of Akhil.
I think it's also worth mentioning that the restaurant is sensibly priced. I've been to several hotels in this price bracket where they get carried away in over pricing the food but that wasn't the case here. The chef also came out of the kitchen to ask if we were enjoying our food - a nice touch.
Thanks to all the staff for helping to make our holiday so memorable, cheers

Room Tip: pool side cottages are having easy access to the beach

We reached the hotel premises a little earlier than our check in time .We were attended well and were given a cottage earlier.It is a lush green,very well maintained property situated in a quiet place. We stayed in Exclusive heritage cottage, a traditional Kerala architecture which was very spacious and had all luxuries, even had a good view of swimming pool from the room. The staffs were genuinely attentive and really want you to have a comfortable and happy stay. The hotel was great in terms of service and the quality of the room. We just came back with lots of good memories.

Room Tip: just try exclusive herritage cottage near by the pool.really amazing......

I stayed here in late May/ early June, 2012, which is the offseason. Unlike some of the other hotels, the place was fully staffed and operating as usual, but at reduced rates.

The rooms are airy and clean, and the service is good. There is also a great swimming pool.
I think you'd be hard pushed to find better value for money.

Also, Nithin, the manager, is always smiling and onhand to help out with whatever you need.

I highly recommend it.

And I would also say that late May is the best time to come -- fewer people, better rates, and still pre-monsoon.

We mainly chose this hotel as we wanted to stay in Varkala but somewhere with a pool and for that reason I'm glad we stayed here. We had just reached India and it was the perfect place to chill out, infact for the five days we stayed there, we spent most of our days by the pool. The complex was well looked after and despite it being low season, there was still people always tending the garden and on hand to help. The food was actually quite good and reasonably priced.

My only slight compaint was that we stayed in one of the Deluxe AC garden cottage for our stay and the room had no natural light as it only had a couple of small windows in the corner of the room. It kept the room cool but meant that it was so dark that I didn't want to spend much time in it. I wished I'd asked to change when we arrived. My other gripe was that I think it was a little expensive so therefore not to include breakfast was a bit cheeky!

Room Tip: When you arrive, if they show you one of the rooms with little natural light, choose to change.
