This hotel is at the other end which is used more by the locals. The rooms are divided into overlooking the beach and garden view. We had a garden...

A new Ayurvedic center was built in the garden and also a little library/chill out-house is under construction! Next year when we come we will benefit...

We stayed at the Varkala Marine Palace for 4 days in August 2016. The hotel has individual cottages in traditional kerala style. The stay was very comfortable and the restaurant had some excellent food.

Myself and my partner stayed here for 10 days for a relaxing break in Varkala. We arrived at a time when there weren't many guests booked in so Mr Bhaskar offered us a choice of rooms. We initially chose one on the first floor with a sea view which was offered with a warning that we might hear a bit...
