Beautiful resort. Home feeling and good people. Service was very good. And the owner is also very good.beach is few steps away from resort. Have direct view to beach. That area is very less crowded. Breakfast was also very good.
We did a lot of research for Kerala. Most popular beaches in India are often very crowded with lots of trash and not much swimming, even with warm waters. There isn't as much "Sunbathing/swimming beach culture", at least at the 6 or 7 beaches I've visited in India. So... this place is a hidden paradise. Its name, Miracle By the Bay, seems overdone, but actually.... it's really an amazing place! Small cottages and rooms with AC, a simple but freshly made breakfast, a very involved owner who watches over everything. A 3 minute walk to a swimming beach (out the gate of the hotel at the beachside on a small hill, go right and walk about 100 meters). The beach there is very quiet, super clean, and the only people we came across were others from the hotel and some fishermen another 100m past the beach. December/January time was warm waters, we swam for a long time, and the beach was CLEAN. No trash, few or no plastic bags, etc. Great option!…
We moved here after staying at a bigger resort hotel. We loved our stay, which was made by the personal touches from the owner in the form of a sandwich for our train journey after leaving and making an effort to get to know us during our stay. The property is right on the beach and offers rooms overlooking the ocean or slightly further back. Both are stunning. This is a must stay if you're in Varkala.
We stayed in Varkala for a couple of nights and couldn't recommend Miracle by the Bay enough. Sunil and the rest of the staff were so helpful and friendly, and the bedrooms were very comfortable. We arrived an early train to Varkala, way before our check in time but Sunil went out of his way to provide is breakfast and get us in to the rooms swiftly after. Sunil was also very helpful in arranging our onward train journey from Varkala and the taxi to the station, thank you very much!
"Simply fantastic" I would stay. Location, ambiance, rooms, lawn, view everything is perfect. The owner Mr Sunil is gem of a person (other staff also), he is always there to assist you and ask whether everything is ok. Its a pet friendly resort. Ideal for family as the lawn offers lot of space for small children. Breakfast was fantastic (presently they serve only breakfast, no other meals). Property does not have a swimming pool, but the big pool (sea) is just 20 meters from the fence. I strongly recommend this resort for a wonderful stay at Varkala. You will come back for sure, as I have planned.
