We spent the last two nights of our Varkala stay here and loved it. So relaxing to sit in the gardens overlooking the sea under the shade of a coconut palm. Steps lead down to the beautiful quiet sandy beach. The hotel has parasols which you can take down to the beach for essential shade if you like to stretch... More

Peaceful and marvelous place. Located at enough distance from Varkala main beach to be quiet. 125 steps below, you are on a beach with less people. All cottages have a magic view on the sea. The rooms are vast and have a very big window to enjoy the view. The staff is very nice and helpful. Great breakfasts. You can... More

Varkala SeaShore Beach Resort is a jewel of a refuge, where the quiet, and the sense of privacy, along with a kind and attentive staff, work in concert to help rejuvenate the road weary. It was just what we needed! They serve a nice breakfast, but wisely do not have an open to all restaurant. Consequently, the compound is not... More

This was my first trip to India. Kerala felt like home to someone born in West Africa. The smell of the frangipani ... Seashore Beach Resort was quiet clean and very welcoming. Resort is a bit of a misnomer for the few chalets and it was a relief to find it was small and quiet. The rooms were large and... More

We stayed here for 5 nights over New Year in one of the cottages and it was wonderful. Spacious accommodation. Steps down to a lovely beach which is much less crowded than the main beach in Varkala. Quiet and peaceful. About a 15 minute walk into the main part of Varkala where most of the shops and restaurants are but... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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.
