We were a group of families visited jagannath temple at varkala. We stayed in a resort named karthika plaza which was near to the temple. A good resort with good location. Staff's are very friendly and the service provided to us was awesome. We stayed in a deluxe room with interconnected doors. So the kids enjoyed well. I recommend this property to all tourists who visit varkala. Thanks karthika plaza. Hope to visit again.

Hi karthika plaza resort, First of all I would like to express my special thanks to Mr. Rinson and Mr. Abilash for giving me and my friends a warm welcome again at karthika. This was my fourth visit to karthika plaza. During this visit I found the property has been renovated with paintings and maintained well. Looking more greenery this time. We all enjoyed our stay. I strongly recommend this property to all the tourists who visit varkala. The beach is hardly one kilometer from this property. It is a home away from home. Thanks to karthika again. See you soon....
