The garden resturant is simply so relaxing at all times of the day, we were staying near by but loved the restaurant ambience. Had coffees in the morning, lunch snacks or light meal, then a sundowner after a swim and great evening meals too. Jack and the crew are so friendly and so willing to help. For veggies, great choices on the menu, so my wife liked it. Great fish and meats too so I was very pleased. I loved the simply made tandoor oven. Each time we came here we had a good time, this has been over the last couple of years now. It can get busy but hey life is good and a wait here is hardly hardship, as a refreshing drink is a great way to work up an appetite. Forget formal dining. Here you get wonderful memories, great tasty, fresh food and friendly service, they are all made here. The sunsets and the sea are truely awesome too. Dining in nature is so much nicer.

The wooden chalet type accommodation was beautifully located and quite basic. Breakfast included turned out to be an arrangement with an on site restaurant with a price not exceeding 150 rupees. This was not explained. Anything above that was charged as an “extra”. There were however other better much places to eat very close by. Also although we were assured on arrival card payments were ok, at the end cash was demanded and the machine was “out of order”.

We stayed at the Blue Water Beach Resort for 4 nights and had the cottage closest to the water. While the accommodation was rustic the location and staff attentiveness compensated for lack of amenities. The hotel is located away from the busier section of Varkala and has a commanding view of the ocean. Also, it is possible to go swimming at the adjacent beach unlike other hotels perched high atop the cliffs. They had a makeshift tandoori oven and the food was very good so we had several meals here plus the breakfast which was included in our rate. Very quiet except for the crashing of waves (we did spend some time worrying about tsunamis).

Room Tip: Ask for the cottage closest to the water. Great porch to contemplate and read on.

We stayed here for five nights at the beginning of our trip to South India The staff were excellent and very attentive however the accommodation was in poor repair and the cottage/bungalow was very dark and smelly. If the inside of the cottage was painted in a light colour it would have made such a difference. We had no hot water initially until we asked then suddenly we got some. The location is very good with excellent views of the sea. The menu was limited but the food was good.

This place commands a great view. The staff are brilliant,helpful, cheery and always smiling. The beer is cold as is the white wine. Food was very nice, loved the chilly chicken. Only downside was the inside of the bungalow was very dark and dingy, a coat of white paint would be good.
