Akhil Beach Resort
Ranked #15 of 52 Hotels in Varkala
Reviewed March 3, 2011

We stayed in Varkala for 3 months (my wife was working at the hospital and my kids were going to a great swedish school in town). We spent our first week at Preeth and then returned once or twice a week for the following months to swim. The rooms are ok and the people who work there are very friendly, but it feels a bit overpriced. The kids loved the pool and the area around the pool made it convenient for meeting up with others.

Apart from a false start with a room that had not been cleaned we were very happy here. The place is ideal for little children who can be safe with a lovely clean pool. Beds were a little hard and room could do with a face-lift but management were fantastic and very helpful. Food can be delivered to the room and you have to try the Prawn Bryiani! This was a wonderful relaxing end of our trip and highly recommended.

The hotel was lovely we had our own apartment which was very clean and quite with a nice balcony. The pool was also lovely clean and big with loungers and towls all provided. The best thing about Preeth resort however was the staff who went out of their way to help and accomodate us. In one case I had to catch a train from Kerala to Delhi and unfortaunatly could not get a ticket. When one of the staff saw that i was upset by this he got up at 4am the next morning and waited in the train station untill he secured a ticket for me and got me on a train. Amazing thank you so much.

Nice and quiet resort with friendly staff and a great pool for the kids to play in. A bit overpriced. Rock hard beds.
A few minutes walk to the shops, restaurants and the beach.

We have only positive things to say about The Preeth, in every aspect. Especially the staff deserve to be mentioned - they were all so nice, friendly and service minded. The pool is nice and always kept clean. The restaurant may not seem to be too exciting, but it´s really quite good, nice breakfasts aswell as dinner. (Don´t miss their puttu with hot milk and honey for breakfast). The hotel itself, and the lush green garden surrounding every building is also worth mentioning.

We also tried the yoga classes of Mr. Ivo, the dutch-born yoga instructor of The Preeth. Classes are held by appointment every morning at the roof of the Ayurveda centre of the hotel. (The Yoga taught by Mr Ivo is traditional yoga, Hatha Yoga.) For us these classes were a nice and relaxing new experience.

Preeth, now called Akhil Beach Resort, was a very nice resort with a great pool suitable for children. The service was excellent with a very friendly staff.
However, the standard of the room was those of a really cheap homestay, which wasn't good enough for the price of 4,000 rupees per night for a deluxe cottage.
The location was great with a couple of minutes walk from the beach.
