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'.

Light airy , the large rooms with a view of the sea very relaxing to be in in the heat of the day. Excellent manager and cleaning staff, beds firm but not uncomfortable, beautiful cotton linen. Breakfast is standard rather than excellent, but there’s always Soul and surf for breakfast. Access to beach good via well maintained steps. Good value and excellent position away from the dreaded North cliff

It’s been three years (mostly due to the Covid pandemic) since my last visit to this lovely cliff top hotel and I was delighted to return in November for a four week stay. They’ve extended the hotel upwards with another floor providing more rooms and giving guests a sea view as well as a beautiful panorama over the grounds. Another newly added attraction is the outdoor shower for guests to wash away sand from the beach below. The restaurant has been reroofed and I understand there are plans to offer a lunch and dinner menu in addition to the existing breakfast fare. A new chef has been appointed along with a new kitchen team. So lots of new changes. What hasn’t changed is the great friendly and professional service provided by the owner Shine, his excellent manager Mandéen and the happy smiling staff whose sole purpose appears to be to ensure you have an enjoyable stay. If you want a relaxing and peaceful break this is the place to be. As different from the busy and overcrowded North Cliff as night is to day. Highly recommended.

This resort is on a cliff with a sweeping lawn to the sea with the most spectacular view. Perfect for those romantic sunsets. We had a lovely "sitting out" area (private) with views out to the Arabian Sea across the lovely gardens. The staff are lovely and friendly. Strongly recommended

Lovely and quiet surroundings, amazing view, great resteraunt food, clean and comfortable rooms and friendly staff. Really glad we stayed here and on the south cliff rather than north cliff- is only a 10 min walk or 100 rupie tuktuk to the bustling north cliff- and a lovely relaxing place away but close to the hustle and bustle. Shine and his team were very helpful in organising us taxis and a tour to Munroe island. Great stay thank you- a great choice when visiting Varkala

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!

After a 5 hour road trip from Fort Kochi, our great driver calmly dodging trucks,cars, motorbikes, scooters, tuctucs, bicycles, brave jay walking pedestrians and even an elephant, it was a wonderful relief to reach the oasis that is Seashore Beach Resort Hotel..... Location Location Location!!! Set on the cliffs , facing southwest, overlooking the quieter cleaner part of beautiful Varkala beach with steep steps down to the sand....15-20 mins stroll over beach brings you to the North Cliffs for the cafes/ restaurants/ shops, or take a tuctuc for 100 Rupees( just a little over €1) Early morning and later evening, Indian families gather to scatter departed loved ones ashes into the Arabian Sea with flower offerings ... respect.... Staff were welcoming and helpful throughout- especially Dilip...and the super magestic Great Dane who is a real pet was ever present to give a welcome to guests... Our Room, serviced daily was a ground floor deluxe self contained large space with a balcony- ac /ceiling fan / complimentary water/ tea and coffee making - and a small fridge was supplied when we requested it; mosquito nets were also available but we didn’t require them- careful management of not having lights on with open doors kept the blighters out!! Large comfy bed with good bed linen. Large clean bathroom with good shower. One small bar soap and one tiny shampoo supplied- tends to be very typical- bring your own toiletries.. Lovely garden setting with hammocks/ sun loungers / shade/ beach towels all available...3 beautiful peacocks live between several adjoining garden so make regular visits during the quiet part of the day.....! Shaded bar/ breakfast area - breakfast menu included juice/ lassi/porridge/ omlette/tea/ coffee/ toast- staff happy to bring refill coffee/tea... fresh fruit and yoghurt would have been a nice addition ... Such a relaxing quiet location to watch the sun sink and the hundreds of twinkling lights out to sea- fishing boats that fish overnight and bring their catch to shore st dawn- a magical sight.. A word of caution re washing white items of clothing... for some reason they will develop patches of brown... take your white laundry home!!
