Pool and food was great, but a bit too far from cliff to walk in dark by self. Room was below average, clean, but small and dark, as have been ill, not very comfortable, for spending long periods,of time in. Couldn't get room with a/c so changed hotels which they were very good about

Location: Close to the Varkala Cliff - around half a kilometre away from it with an entry through the back gate. Around 15 mins from the railway station. Rating: 3.5/5 Rooms: Average rooms/ cottages in terms of furnishing etc. Basic looks of the room in terms of interiors have scope for improvement. Most rooms are provided with a balcony and... More

A nice and cosy family resort with pool, offer ayurvedic treatments and yoga classes. Perfeclty situated aside (5 min walk) from the beach walk and the sea. Friendly and helpful staff. We've been there twice and would love to return for another relaxing stay.

The apparent advantage of the hotel is its territory, this is a Garden of Eden, there are blooming trees and flowers, birds sing their serenades, in the shade of the palm trees are cozy seating areas. The rooms are simple but comfortable and cozy. A good supplement to them are balconies - thanks to which my standard room was a... More

I came there as an outside guest. I really enjoyed the pool's size and surroundings, it also proved to be one of the cleanest in the area. However, the management insisted on charging for the whole day although I came for 2 hours only - right before closing time - and there were almost no people there. They didn't serve... More

An excellent location to hang out. Room was neat and pool well maintained. Excellent food, especially sea food . A few minutes walk to the the awesome cliff and exotic beach. Morning and evening walk through the colourful Tibetan Market and sea facing restaurants is indeed relaxing. B. Balacahndran & Family Trivandrum

We appreciated the reasonable prices for a largish fan room with balcony/pool view. Good daily cleaning service and very clean pool. Restaurant has a limited menu, but poolside and room service plus cheaper beer make up for what's missing. We stayed ten days in early October. Easy walks to North Cliff, restaurants and shops.

The resort provided a good stay for me and my family. The pool view cottages that i had booked turned out to be nice and spacious. I felt the highlight of the stay was the pool...it was a well maintained one with beautiful garden surrounding it. But the staff were not keen on enforcing pool etiquette and hence we had... More

We were here in low season so it was pretty empty. The grounds and pool are the best parts..our kids lived in the pool, which was well maintained but probably too high in chlorine (better too much than too little!) Staff were all friendly. They have loungers and pool towels at the pool. We stayed in a cottage with 2... More
