Great location. Fantastic view of the cliff and sea. Rooms large, clean, comfortable. Situated on south cliff which is really quiet. The beach is like a private beach with no touts, sellers or hassle. We swam despite hearing that the sea is dangerous, lots of other people in the water but for safety didnt go out too far. North cliff...

I was looking for a safe and gentle introduction to the culture of India as a first-time solo traveler there. While the lights and activity of North Cliff may be attractive to others, I was more interested in gazing at the stars from a hammock. Shine, the owner of the Sea Shore Beach Resort, has created a haven on the...

We had a great stay with our 2 year old who loved all the attention she got from all the staff. Room was great - cool even though we didn't have AC, comfortable, cleaned everyday, great views and best of all own access to the beach. Need to watch the cliff though if you have young children. It was nice...

We stayed at Sea Shore for 2 x nights in January & it was absolutely amazing. The owners are delightful & extremely helpful. Our room was spotless & we loved having a hammock to relax in right outside our front door. The grounds are kept beautifully and lead to the edge of the south cliff with stunning views & private...

This really was the perfect place to stay in Varkala. The staff were all friendly and helpful and provided a welcome drink on arrival as well as useful information about Varkala and a map. The cottages and bedrooms surround a beautiful garden with palm trees and hammocks. The cottage rooms are huge and lovely, I'd definitely recommend booking one if...

Beautifully maintained, perfect location, friendly helpful people, spotlessly clean. The garden alone is fabulous with its hammocks and palm trees and view of the sea, there are steps down to a secluded part of the beach. We couldn't fault it.

We went into pretty much every place on the main stretch on Varkala beach and nothing really stood out. Someone recommended that we head over to the Sea Shore and check it out. We're really glad we did. The room we got cost more than the other places we'd seen but was worth every penny. It was huge and spotless...

We stayed in the A/c cottage for five nights here and what a glorious, relaxing experience it was. The room was beautifully furnished and immaculately clean. From our covered veranda we could gaze across the lush green lawned oasis, past the gently swinging hammocks and out to the Arabian sea beyond. Yuo can access the small, secluded beach via a...

Beautiful location and worth every rupee. It was the best place we stayed in Kerala. If you're looking for amazing views, spotless rooms and a friendly staff I highly recommend Sea Shore. Shine (the owner) and his staff keep this place immaculate and you can tell by the way they care for the gardens and rooms that they take pride...

Seashore is ideally situated on tne South Cliff with stunning views from every room. The busier and noisier North Cliff is just a ten minute walk away so you have the best of both worlds.Our room with fan was spacious and spotless with the bedding and towels changed every day.The real bonus was having our own terrace area with a...

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.
