This is my second review after our visit once again (I think this was our 3rd year). Shine and the team still dazzle with their perfect host skills. Always available to look after you in whatever manner, and quick to answer questions and to accommodate your requests. The place itself is still beautiful and tranquil - the view stunning. The...

My boyfriend and I were blown away by the location of this small hotel. I think it is the most beautiful place I have ever stayed. Rooms are basic but very comfortable, although my boyfriend found the beds uncomfortable I found I slept soundly. Bathrooms are basic but spotlessly clean. To be honest I really can't fault this place. The...

This is just a great place to spend a relaxing holiday with your partner. It's beautiful, romantic and peaceful. The staff is extremely helpful. Ask for a room in one of the small houses in the garden. The view from the second floor is awesome. The rooms are spacious, clean and charming (all in a positive way). The breakfasts are...

I found this place when I was walking around Varkala, I'm so glad I did! It is in a fantastic location, right on the cliff top with steps down to a quiet stretch beach and just 10 minutes walk to the eateries on the busier beach. The whole place, inside and out, is beautifully kept, clean and tended to Western...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It's a very beautiful piece of paradise. It's a guest house (I couldn't call it something so cold as a resort) that delivers excellent service with a low key spirit of wanting to make your experience as enjoyable as possible. The rooms are clean, comfortable and the higher-end suites are exceptionally lovely and all for prices that make this the very best value I have almost ever experienced in all my travels.
