Located at the very end of North Varkala cliff and very close to black beach, WoodHouse beach resort is a very calm place away from the bustling cliff market. Also the view from the hotel; the Arabian sea, coconut trees create a perfect holiday feeling. The attendant Manoj is very helpful and provided lot of information regarding the tourist attractions....

I could only afford the time to stay two nights at this small resort - main building plus four bungalows at the end of a "promenade" (a narrow walkway) along the cliff. Because the resort is the last one, there are no crowds of people passing by on their way to shops, cafes and restaurants. I found the WBR a...

Room- we had a small bungalow. This consists of a bedroom area and wet room. The wetroom had a family of ants living there but to be honest this really didn't bother me- they went in and out the window, never venturing far at all. It had a western style flush toilet, which may be a must for some travellers....

The huts are all stuck together and people walk right in front of your door and view, we did not get a genuine ocean view even though it was an Ocean View Heritage Cottage, the ocean was way on the side (so it was in our view if we turned left) and what we did have in front of us...

This was a perfect spot for my husband and my little retreat. It is located at the end of the north cliff so is quiet and beautiful with the ocean right there and a beach just a short walk away. The walk to my Ayurveda treatments and yoga classes was a kilometre along the cliff path which was good exercise...

“Either choose the rooms on the first floor or opt for a cottage in the lawn area. Both offers sea facing view.”

“If a person takes the single cottage, there was no private balcony or sitting area. That is the common for all.”
somak671, 7 Mar 2017 | Read review
“Pick the room closer to the main building for better wifi and further away for a view.”
