    Good small resort. 10 minutes walk to Varkala cliff- a must watch place with thrilling view of sea. Food was good. Kerala Specialities were good (veg). You can Banana fry. Value for money. Only problem is going to Cliff/coming from Cliff during night time.

    Its a simple hotel, is clean, provides a good service. Its not actually close to the beach, a bit of a walking distance. Restaurants close at around 9:00 pm. Tried their breakfast, its mostly catered for non-Indian palate, which is fine. The Wi-Fi is steady,...More
