I suggest this to everyone planning to visit varkala. The view from your cottage is awesome. If you are planning for a relaxing weekend you can choose this one. The rooms are neat. AC's are working properly . Food is not good. Better to find food nearby. Lots of food joints near by. Staffs are helpful.

You get a nice view of sea from your room. Cottages are nearer to the beach, hence has better view. Rooms are good with very basic facilities and AC. This hotel need to improve the number of staffs. We have to wait almost 1 hour at the restaurant to get our complimentary breakfast, however we left without having it as...

We did not have a reservation and we arrived to find that there was one freeestanding bungalow left. It was above our price so we were about to walk away when the manager came out and gave us a lower price. It is usually very busy at this time of year in Varkala but for some reason this year is...

This was a rare gem of a place, and it made our stay in Varkala absolutely fabulous. We stayed in the first cottage. You can sit out on the porch and enjoy the beach view from here. I think almost all cottages give you a view of the beach, but the first one is right next to it. The black...

We had 2 heritage cottages, which looked nice on the outside but were characterless, basic and a bit tired inside. The front cottage has a sea view, the rest are arranged behind it so nearly have a sea view. We didn't get on very well with the restaurant. We arrived in the afternoon after a 6 hour journey and ordered...

The rooms are basic, but cozy. The food since it is made with fresh ingredients, you need to let them know at least 3-4 hours earlier. And all i can tell you is, it is definitely worth the time. So make you order go chill out at the beach or shop, and once you are back hungry and tired..they spread...

After some initial hiccups which involved downright denial of our reservation of two rooms done via makemytrip and some wait, we managed to check-in to the resort. The rooms were clean and quiet. It was right on top of the cliff and just a lil walk away from the beach. P.S Do make sure that you have confirmed your bookings...

The rooms in this hotel are average but the terrace by the sea is the best in Varkala. It is right by the sea and the views are nice. If you want you can find a shade given by the overhanging palm trees. In the evening there is a refressing breeze coming from the ocean. The hotel is situated in...

“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.”
