This hotel is in a good location for the beach and restaurant's. The hotel room was nice with a great view, the hotel was very clean and had a lovely staff team, the manager could not do enough for us. The only downside was no food available after breakfast but cafes and bars only a short walk away. The hotel...

A nice stay here. A (clean) big room with balcony view of the helipad which is at the top of the bar/restaurant/shop lined pathway leading to the 3 beaches. The helipad acts as a large car park for local tourists at weekends which makes it busy & noisy but the only real downside is the enormous light that shines into...

Opted for an a/c room after a couple of hot nights elsewhere in Varkala and this was a good choice. It was very quiet in terms of few other guests but the staff was very attentive, especially the manager, Kumar, who was helpful in with arranging bike rental, early morning taxi and rickshaws etc in addition to some nice conversations....

This was a nice location, topped off by a very helpful staff. A five minute walk from the beach and many restaurants for dinner made it a perfect location. It is a modest room and the breakfast is good. Thanks for the time!

We visited Sanctum Spring Beach Resort in July 2016. It is located right on the helipad, just 1 min walk from the chain of restaurants like InDa Cafe, Coffee Temple etc.. July is a off season as it is monsoon time, so the entire hotel was almost empty. We were put in a corner room on the first floor,right next...

We stayed at the smelly, musty, unhelpful Eden Garden and were very pleasantly surprised to find this gem of a hotel on our walk to the North Cliff. The staff was friendly and helpful and helped us find an amazing yoga instructor and Ayurveda clinic. We were so happy to stay here and even extended by 1 more night. The...

Dear Mam, Greetings from The Sanctum Spring Beach Resort. Thank you and we value your great comments. Unfortunately the choice we have made at Cherthala was wrong and we have taken note of the same and will be cautious in future as well. Once again we feel happy that you had a good time with us and we look forward...

This hotel is very beautifully located on the helipad giving an unobstructed view of the blue sea and the horizon. Staff is helpful and kind.. The only drawback is the breakfast. .It was complimentary but as good as nothing with just toast. .butter ..jam..pancakes. .boiled eggs and tea/coffee.. They could offer just a bit more and it will be perfect.....
