I stayed in Thiruvambadi Beach Retreat 2 years back with my friends. It is situated at the North End Down Cliff near International Aquarium at Thiruvambadi Beach. One of the peculiarities of this place is its direct road access which is not in the case of most of the resorts in the cliff. It’s a quite serene place and has... More

Only few properties in Varkala has Swimming Pool. And Thiruvambadi is with an amazing pool. I prefer to stay in Thiruvambadi Beach Retreat because it gives a calm and quite feel like home atmosphere with lots of positive energy. Variety of room sizes to select from. Just 1 minute away from the beach.. And a nice sleep with the music... More

Thiruvabadi Beach Retreat has a superb location at the end of North End Down Cliff. An isolated beach just a few meters away from the resort. Swaying palms all around the place and surrounded by a lot of food options. Only drawback is lace of in-house restaurant. Nonetheless .. a great place to spend a couple of days at Varkala.

I swim for exercise and it was the main reason I was drawn to this hotel. It's big enough for lap swim exercise. I was very happy with the pools condition and maintenance. Our overall stay was pretty good here. The hotels design and layout is unusual and we found that appealing. We didn't realize they were in the middle... More

The resort is a scam and a disaster! Our worst hotel experience during 50 years of travelling. Our main reasons for complaints are three: false information on the website, lack of service and hygiene. Website Restaurant. There was no restaurant. They only served a poor breakfast with no options. You had to remind to get what was included. Private beach.... More

Stayed here for 2 nights.. Big rooms with very nice view and a well maintained pool.. Quite near to the bustling cliff side and yet far enough to get you the peace and calm.. The rooms themselves add value to your trip.. A nice place to live with friends as well as family..

Stayed here for 2 nights. Friendly staff, large room with pool and sea view. Very nice pool! A little bit away from the action on the cliffs (15min walk). Near black beach (very quiet). You will need transport for sightseeing but I was traveling on a motorbike

Easy walk to the beach, nice beach. Very nice view from my room. The price was fair, it was off season. The first 3 days the pool was good, then because of rain and no sun, the water turned green. We were unable to swim the last 3 days of our stay. We were told they would take credit card... More
