A well maintained property near the beach. Comfortable,Clean and quiet place to stay near the North Cliff.Couple of minutes walk to the beach and Beach Market.The Hotel staff are friendly and good.Rooms are spacious,clean and well maintained.Decent pool.Decent Breakfast. The only issue that we faced in our 1 day stay was the Television Signal. Overall Happy Stay :)

Deshadan is a comfortable, clean resort in Varkala. It’s only a five minute walk to the cliff top, three minutes to the Tibetan market. A pool is a must in Varkala as the sea isn’t suitable for swimming. poolside room was very spacious and kept spotlessly clean by the helpful staff, despite our constant traipsing in and out from the...

Deshadan is a comfortable, clean and friendly base in Varkala. We selected the hotel because of the pool and proximity to the north cliff area. It’s only a five minute walk to the cliff top, three minutes to the Tibetan market (which has a much better selection and quality of produce than the shops that directly line the cliff). A...

The deshadan cliff resort was a good choice for us to stay in. This hotel is very close to the cliffs, which is very convenient to have dinner, a little walk on the seaside, and get back by feet. Swimming pool there is a real plus because it has a sun exposition all morning, which allowed us to do exercises....

Generally speaking Indians are incredibly generous and try to offer the best possible service. The people at the Deshadan Cliff and Beach Resort really went above and beyond. The resort is located at a very short distance from the cliff, it has a beautiful pool and a very well taken care garden. We spent one day at the hotel, had...

After three days of constant rain and closed restaurants in South Goa, we started thinking that the Indian west coast, during the monsoon, was a terrible choice for a Holiday destination. The second we arrived at the Deshadan we knew this was not the case. We had booked two nights through Expedia, and were put in a nice large room...

Visited this place in July with family. Location is reasonably good, pretty quiet and isolated. Walkable distance from the cliff overlooking the beach. We opted for the cottage with 2 bed rooms, which were pretty neat and well maintained. Most importantly, the food served for dinner was really good, expectedly the sea food was very nice. Service is top notch...

Stayed in the last week of may with family. Got an excellent package. Food was tasty.Staffs were very friendly.But please don't expect a huge resort like other deshadan properties. Only 16 pool facing air conditioned rooms and a central pool.The pool is only 4ft deep and very neat.Strongly recommend this resort for families and couples.
