Gateway Varkala - IHCL SeleQtions garners praise for its exceptional service, with staff members who frequently go the extra mile, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere amid beautiful gardens. While the hotel boasts a plethora of amenities and a stunning location near the beach, some guests feel the rooms could benefit from modernization. The clean, spacious rooms with sea views are a hit, though opinions on value diverge due to food pricing. Overall, the hotel is celebrated for its cleanliness and hospitable surroundings.

For me it is the best place to stay in Varkala. View of the sea from the room balcony is simply breathtaking. Reception and check in was smooth and very pleasant. The rooms are comfortable and the housekeeping as with any Taj property is excellent. A stroll around the property is very soothing and enjoyable due to the well maintained gardens all around. A nice feature about the layout of the property is the topography of the land that has been preserved during construction. Each room is at a different level and you climb down to the rooms on either side of the front desk area. Staff at the hotel in all departments from security to restaurant and the kitchen are very friendly, welcoming and very accommodative. Breakfast spread is sumptuous, tasty and well presented. A-la-carte items for other meals were also very good, Varkala beach, cliff and Janaradhanaswamy temple are a short walk from the hotel. The trip to Jatayu Earth Centre was also very well arranged by the hotel. The Spa too is well maintained and the ayurvedic treatments available are good. The property existing for some years now, room intereiors need some attention and spruce up.

Stayed from Nov 1 to 3. We were a group of 13 and had 5 rooms out of which 2 were the superior sea view ones. The rooms are huge and nice however I strongly recommend the lesser garden view rooms over sea view as they have private gardens in front of the room which is nice to sit and relax in the evenings also from here you will have direct access to swimming pool and bar without having to walk down the stairs. Though during our stay the pool and gym were closed due to Covid. Being inner circle member I booked directly with Taj and the sales person gave me a good deal so I recommend it over any online portals. The check in process was a breeze and the hotel team led by the GM Mr.Shobith and amply supported by Mr.Sudeep and Ms.Ashwathy made sure Our stay was comfortable. I had my son's birthday function there which was well organized and beautifully decorated by the team. Mr.Shobith together with the chef had sat down with us and helped us plan the menu. Mr.Sudeep regularly advised us regarding the places to visit and how to plan it. He was also the one to give a detailed tour of the property during check in. Overall they helped us make our stay memorable, so don't know which was the best the place, the property or the team, maybe it's the combination of all. Definitely recommended and hopefully we find to return there. Lastly they honored my parents by asking them to plant a tree in their property fir which I thank the team as it made them feel so special. Thank you Taj.

It was a pleasurable interlude. While COVID had indeed caused a few restrictions such as the closed swimming pool and the Ayurvedic centre, it did not take away the joy of a holiday. The restrictions on the bar magically got lifted during the stay.
I had occasion to interact with the GM of the hotel, an amazing hands on person who leads a fine team to make the stay memorable. They served great food and had suggestions for visits in and around Varkala. The beaches were serene and were not crowded.

Maintenance of the rooms are overdue with floors and mirrors crying for attention. Apparently , Covid derailed their maintenance plans. Being at Varkala I was disappointed that pomfrets, seer fish or prawns did not find place in the otherwise good menu. Hopefully they will make amends.

I remember my visit to Varkala in Oct 19 and it’s pale version now. The foreign tourists are missing and most of the shops on the cliff have closed business. Domestic tourists can therefore look forward to a great time at Varkala beach.

If one expects a luxurious stay in a Taj property at Varkala, then Taj Varkala is not the place for you. The building old, the rooms neat but very simple , the bathrooms old , shabby and dark. The whole stay can be described as an adventure in an eighteenth century worn out property. There’s also no accessible access to the beach and one can always feel disappointed and a complete waste of money. It is disappointing to see the callousness of Taj management and they seriously need to take care of this. The only Tajness, however is noticed in the staff trying to cooperate in every possible way. The chef personally takes care of the guest and customises food according to your taste, the room service and reception proactive, but all these fail to compensate the luxury of a Taj stay. Overall disappointing.

The hotel is well situated and just a few minutes walk from the beach and on to the cliff top. The pool is great but I can imagine it would be crowded in busier times so we were pleased to visit at a quiet period. The breakfast is very good and staff very attentive. We did not eat any meals other than breakfast as there are so many fine restaurants nearby offering great value and good atmosphere.

This is a beautiful hotel not far from the beach and Cliff. The pool is great but far too few sun beds and parasols. The restaurant food was good but much more expensive than eating out at one of the many places on the Cliff ( which was a vibrant area in the evening). Also lack of information in the hotel regarding their facilities ( found out about Yoga classes from another guest) and finally need to switch on A/C in gym ( not done when asked in advance !)

This was a very nice hotel to stay with great views of the sea from the lobby, friendly and courteous staff, excellent food, Special mention for Radhika, Arjun, chef Sunil, chef Liju for their hospitality and service. The hygeine standards kept by them during the pandemic was top notch beftting the Taj standards. In short will recommend this hotel to all my friends and relatives.

We had a brilliant 3 night stay at Gateway Varkala. The rooms are super clean and the bathroom area is very spacious and luxurious. Special mention for the bedsheet linens which are so soft that it's difficult to get off the bed. Easily one of the best sleeps we've had. The breakfast buffet was yummy and they allow you to borrow books from their library. The best thing about this property was that it's huge, so it's great for walks etc. The general manager Shobhit runs a great ship and all needs are met before we anticipate them. Sudeep helped us with check in and check out formalities and overall made us feel very welcome and pampered. The staff in the restaurant is very courteous too. Definitely staying here again next time. The property is just 50 bucks away from the north cliff so the location is great.

Stayed in Gateway Varkala for one night. We had booked 3 rooms (1 sea facing & 2 garden facing ones) but had to unfortunately cancel one of it couple of days before the check-in. Though we had to pay for the room, the hotel staff were courteous enough to compensate us with a dinner and upgrade one garden facing one to sea facing. Sea facing rooms are really nice, spacious with a great balcony overlooking the pool and the sea at a distance. Dinner and breakfast were really nice. Swimming pool was nice but some tiles need replacement as they are broken, caused a small bruise under my foot. One thing that really stood out was the courteousness and attention of the staff that reminds you that you are in Taj. My kid fell from a bicycle there and she was promptly attended to with first aid kit. Location is bang in the center of all attractions (Varkala cliff, temple, Papanasam beach...). One thing is the space surrounding the property is kind of limited and the inside walkway to the beach was in a bad shape to be used. If we need to have a good walk we need to step out of the property and thats not really a bad option. Beach is a refreshing walk from there. I will definitely plan a trip again.

We had a lovely stay here due to the staff and their services. The food was pretty good as well and the huge portion sizes sure made it value for money. The location itself is very picturesque and the pool and pool staff deserve a special mention as well.
