Dear Mr. Basin,

Greetings !!!

Thank you for the great review. We do provide all food during the peak season time otherwise can have mostly breakfast only when off season starts, as the time you came.

We look forward to your return with more services in future.

Thank you once again.

M. Anil Kumar

This hotel is in a good location for the beach and restaurant's. The hotel room was nice with a great view, the hotel was very clean and had a lovely staff team, the manager could not do enough for us. The only downside was no food available after breakfast but cafes and bars only a short walk away. The hotel is situated by the helipad which was also used as a car park so could be a bit noisy but we enjoyed our stay here.

Room Tip: Have a top floor room

This hotel is located between the 2 beaches, north and south. The cliff is beautifull, restaurants near and great.
The hotel is very quiet and has a Lovely garden. Rooms are clean and big enough. The staff is very very helpfull.
The manager can help you to find ayurveda, but you can also look around youreself. Breakfast is simple and good.
They provide towels for the beach. The sea is warm and great but there is Some heavy current, so watch out!
What we liked About this hotel is that it is open and not surrounded by other buildings (yet)

A nice stay here. A (clean) big room with balcony view of the helipad which is at the top of the bar/restaurant/shop lined pathway leading to the 3 beaches. The helipad acts as a large car park for local tourists at weekends which makes it busy & noisy but the only real downside is the enormous light that shines into the hotel rooms at night.
The manager Anil was very helpful on many aspects, as were his staff. The only downside was the breakfast was only traditional food at the weekend when most residents were Indian tourists which was a shame and the breakfast to go when I left to get a train a bit early was not worth having, they'd be better to not provide it.
It's more expensive to stay here than other places in Varkala and I'm not sure it's entirely worth it, other places looked good too, although Varkala itself is nice.
The main beach is lovely although there's a strong rip so the life guards are on watch constantly. The other 2 beaches aren't so nice & clean, and 1 used more for religious ceremonies so not relaxing either.
A nice relaxing place to visit.

Opted for an a/c room after a couple of hot nights elsewhere in Varkala and this was a good choice. It was very quiet in terms of few other guests but the staff was very attentive, especially the manager, Kumar, who was helpful in with arranging bike rental, early morning taxi and rickshaws etc in addition to some nice conversations.
The double rooms are simple but have everything you need and the balcony is a bonus. We paid 2500 rupees a night and thought of it as good value considering location and service. The breakfast isn't anything to rave about but there are places just across the helipad that specialises in that.
