Nicely located away from busy Varkala "Cliff", the SeaShore provides a haven of tranquillity with beautiful sunset views and direct access to the beach. Staff are exceptionally friendly, especially the person serving breakfast: the pineapple juice was so good that we got a second one! We were 3 - Italian friends travelling from Paris, celebrating together our common 50y birthday... More

They say you should never stay at a hotel two years running. They say it will never be as good as the first time. Well, sorry but in this instance "they" have got it wrong. This lovely little hotel sitting in its beautiful gardens atop South Cliff overlooking the ocean is the perfect antidote to the stresses of modern living.... More

Our family stayed 6 days here. The location is beautiful. Very nice beach down the cliff, I could surf several times. The kids enjoyed swimming in the waves. The rooms are very clean and we'll maintained. Personal very nice and always available for help and service.

We spent 2 nights here on a whirlwind tour of Kerala, in September, the off-season. It was blissfully quiet. The proprietor was very welcoming and the room was beautifully spacious and comfortable. The garden was peaceful and we enjoyed the private beach (steep steps down the cliff), where we were able to swim. There were plenty of restaurants within easy... More

The best place to enjoy the nature without any strain. Better place to experience the gourmet foods and also it's better to have cocktails near the pools which l make ur heart feel the peace. Jus knock their doors for checkin into heaven

We stayed here as a back-up as we were surfing with Soul & Surf next door but they were fully booked. It was a beautiful surprise (and a third of the price!). The rooms are clean and simple - although our basic room was a little stuffy at times. But the gardens are what it's all about - immaculately landscaped... More

This hotel has 9 rooms, but there's a lot of space so it always feels quiet and serene. Rooms, bathrooms and veranda area are always kept clean. There are hammocks everywhere, you get your own personal hammock outside your room and then there are various hammocks in the grounds. It is very close to the beach. It is located on... More

I have visited The Seashore twice this season . The rooms are comfortable and sparklingly clean. The gardens are a Paradise on the edge of the South Cliff.

We stayed at the Sea Shore Hotel in January 2014 and I am still looking forward to get back. The place is just fantastic! We even saw dolphins from the hotel, twice. Once, during breakfast (think of something more luxurious) and another time from the beach. Shine and his crew are very kind and helpful. Unfortunately I had a small... More

This is such a restful and lovely place to stay, I cannot recommend enough. The rooms are spotless and the whole place has a tranquil and calm feel. The breakfast is delicious - enough to keep you full until dinner time and the staff are helpful and friendly. The South cliff is an oasis, yet close enough to the hustle... 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.
