I stayed here for 5 nights with a friend, and this was probably the best value place we stayed - for the price of a very average homestay room elsewhere, here we had a lovely big room with air con and a balcony, and breakfast included. There were some issues initially with our booking, as we had requested a twin...

The reception and the house keeping got from the hotel were excellent. Nice view from the balcony. The food is also fine. If you are going to Varkala and looking forward to book a resort near the sea than this would be a real good option.

I agree 100%.The hotel is conveniently located next to the helipad within walking distance to the north cliff where you get amazing views of Arabian Sea and the cliff. The beach is...

We had originally booked this hotel for four days but we were so comfortable that we extended by another three. The location was perfect at the quieter end of Varkala Beach but it only took a few minutes to walk to all the excellent restaurants.

We stayed at this resort for 4 days and the first thing that blew us away is the location. The resort is strategically located so that all rooms face the sea and that itself is enough value for money. The beach is about 5 mins away from the resort and has some great restaurants around it as well. The staff...

Dear Sir, We think that there has been a terrible misunderstanding; In the first place, you were given a hefty discount on the suite room, considering the fact that you are a tour leader and a potential business provider.
