#8 of 127 in Varkala Town
It's a very beautiful piece of paradise. It's a guest house (I couldn't call it something so cold as a resort) that delivers excellent service with a low key spirit of wanting to make your experience as enjoyable as possible. The rooms are clean, comfortable and the higher-end suites are exceptionally lovely and all for prices that make this the very best value I have almost ever experienced in all my travels. 'taken from guest review'.

Prior to my arrival, my husband had stayed in a standard room and said it was fine but very basic and did not have much light. We decided to upgrade to an upper level room at the edge of the property, overlooking the ocean, and it was an excellent choice. The room was clean with nice furnishings, a balcony and large window to take in the vast ocean view. The bed was comfortable and had a surrounding net. The bathroom was very basic and did not have hot water from the shower head but only the faucet below. The grounds of this hotel were just beautiful with very tall palm trees and hammocks and there was even a lovely resident dog that occupied the lobby area. Breakfast was wonderful here. The service, food and view were all very good. The best part about this hotel is that it has a private entrance to the beach. Varkala Beach is quite busy, so it was a treat to have this quiet, more private section of the beach, accessible from the property. Important to note is that there are many steps on this path and it is a little steep. It weaves through what feels like a small jungle, along the cliff. The only real issue we had at the hotel was that there was a giant roach / water bug in the bathroom, larger than any we had ever seen. Even my husband was uncomfortable with the standoff. We were surprised when after being released outside it flew away. I suppose this can sometimes come with the territory but made for a little unsettledness during our stay. Still, we would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it for cleanliness, views and service. There is certainly pride of ownership at the SeaShore.

Lovely cliff top location with view out to sea and convenient beach access. Comfortable bed and effective AC. The whole hotel was spotlessly clean and well laid out. Just a little tip, if you’re not using it unplug the mini-fridge in the room as it’s noisy and gets very hot on the back making the AC work very hard! Overall happy with our stay, a nice location within walking distance of happening north cliff, but with the peace and tranquility of the south area of the beach.

Just spent an amazing month at Seashore Resort. Shine, the owner, Phillip, the Manager and his team were extremely welcoming and went beyond the call of duty to make my time there a memorable one. The location is beautiful, the hotel grounds are an oasis of tranquility, the rooms are spotlessly clean. What more can I say? Highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed at seashore for 10 nights, we would have stayed longer if we didn’t have to return home. We had been in Rajasthan for two weeks and it was a fantastic way to complete our holiday. Unwind, relax, enjoy the restaurants, and walk the beach. We preferred south cliff to north it was quiet and you can easily get over to north cliff if you want to soak up the atmosphere there. Phillip, Shane and the two boys were always friendly and helpful, not to mention the beautiful Great Dane! The rooms are clean comfortable and value for money, service is great. Thankyou for having us and making our holiday a trip to remember!
