NOTE: I did not stay here, as on my arrival I was disillusioned and took my services elsewhere. So we booked and paid for this place over 6 months ago and over repeated emails had confirmation that the room will sleep 5 people (2 adults and 3 children). Now, if you look at the photos, you would think that the...

The person who wrote this didn’t stayed in our resort. He booked the room through airbnb. At the time of booking, we evidently mentioned that we have only one room left in our resort and all other rooms are already reserved due to peak season. They have booked a standard double room and agreed to stay all of them in...

Im travelling for two months around India and when I arrived to Thiruvambadi I can't believe it! It's a wonderful place where you can relax and meet really nice people, from the recepcionist to the waiter and of course the manager, Anoop. The room was very clean and comfortable (they give you blankets, sheets and towels) and has a nice...

I stayed in Thiruvambadi Beach Retreat 2 years back with my friends. It is situated at the North End Down Cliff near International Aquarium at Thiruvambadi Beach. One of the peculiarities of this place is its direct road access which is not in the case of most of the resorts in the cliff. It’s a quite serene place and has...

Only few properties in Varkala has Swimming Pool. And Thiruvambadi is with an amazing pool. I prefer to stay in Thiruvambadi Beach Retreat because it gives a calm and quite feel like home atmosphere with lots of positive energy. Variety of room sizes to select from. Just 1 minute away from the beach.. And a nice sleep with the music...

We stayed here for one night. We stayed in off season so there is no other tourist is there. Swiming pool is not clean or green colour at that time. Services also average. but they arrange a motorbike for us. May things change at season.

Thiruvabadi Beach Retreat has a superb location at the end of North End Down Cliff. An isolated beach just a few meters away from the resort. Swaying palms all around the place and surrounded by a lot of food options. Only drawback is lace of in-house restaurant. Nonetheless .. a great place to spend a couple of days at Varkala.

I swim for exercise and it was the main reason I was drawn to this hotel. It's big enough for lap swim exercise. I was very happy with the pools condition and maintenance. Our overall stay was pretty good here. The hotels design and layout is unusual and we found that appealing. We didn't realize they were in the middle...

The resort is a scam and a disaster! Our worst hotel experience during 50 years of travelling. Our main reasons for complaints are three: false information on the website, lack of service and hygiene. Website Restaurant. There was no restaurant. They only served a poor breakfast with no options. You had to remind to get what was included. Private beach....

Stayed here for 2 nights.. Big rooms with very nice view and a well maintained pool.. Quite near to the bustling cliff side and yet far enough to get you the peace and calm.. The rooms themselves add value to your trip.. A nice place to live with friends as well as family..
