“A nice quiet place”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Stayed for 2 nights at Deshadan resort in August. This is a small quiet place with nicely homely feel. They got very helpful and friendly staff. It was not much crowded and we saw 2 other families when we were there. We were in one of the pool side cottage. Rooms were good and clean. Bathroom just adequate. The pool is small but clean and kids enjoyed there. The open air restaurant is nearby and they serve to order. The selections are limited but reasonable. We had all our meals there itself. The main cliff beach is a 10 min walk. We drove to other beaches and also to kappil lake. Overall a very pleasant and relaxing stay.

I wad on Kerala tour from 13th Oct to 20th. Varkala was my first destination. The resort is very tastefully built. Each room has different name, identity and decor. Own Ayurveda center. Swimming pull and above all warm people to serve you with smile. Food was also great in centrally located restaurant.

Stayed here for 4 nights. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and spacious. Pool is also very good. The only issue is that the hotel is a ten minute walk from the main cliff, where the beach and all the shops and restaurants are located. At night you will need to bring a flash-light (which the hotel staff provided for us) in order to find your way back to the hotel But in some ways it is nice to be away from the hustle of the main cliff front. Breakfast was good also.

unfortunately I fell ill, on my second night during a short holiday in varkala. The staff was so very helpful, they went out of their way to make sure I was ok. A person from the hotel made arrangements for a doctor, when that was not possible as it was a sunday. personally took me to the hospital, helped in the translation ironed everything out. Not just that, the next morning the gm had arranged to get my tests delivered to me. which was really very sweet.

They did all this without me even asking. they went the extra mile, they even offered to make food not on the menu, that would make me feel better..

this really made me fall in love with the place and people here. well i recovered the next day itself. but stayed another extra day.

Food is very very good. the pool is always clean and 7 out of five stars for how they treat their guests. OOOhhh and the beds are so soft and springy, loved them !!

Room Tip: ground floor rooms are cooler

We booked into the Deshaden for three nights and extended our stay for another week. If you have the time you can easily slot in to a very relaxed holiday in Varkala staying at the Deshaden. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, the pool is magic, the rooms are spacious, very clean and nicely decorated and are serviced daily. The beds are large and extremely comfortable (just like clouds) with good linen and pillows, a little of a rarity we found. The bathroom is good, everything works and it has a shower curtain. Wow. The hotel is in good condition, well kept and the gardens are nice, creating a beautiful setting. The breakfast is served in the open air restaurant in the garden, is a la carte, complimentary and very good. The beach or more accurately during our stay the cliff top, is (we timed it ) 4 minutes 20 seconds down some sandy lane ways . This provides lots and lots of cafes and restaurants.

Room Tip: All rooms face the pool and are probably very similar

The resort is no where close to "luxury"... the location is good but not that great. But still the overall experience was very good because the staff is very good.. they go that extra mile to make your stay comfortable. The breakfast was good too.

I stayed here for 3 days. The resorts is at a walkable distance from the cliff. The time we went to Varkala was not pleasant, but the stay in the resorts made us happy and enjoyable. The room service was excellent. Pool a great plus point in the resorts. Don't miss it.
