A note from Palm Tree Bungalow
Updated 01/06/20


#18 of 74 hotels in Varkala Town
Our Palm Tree Bungalows & villa are situated north of the holy beach far away from the pretty crowded north cliff. In the west, the mesmerizing Arabian Ocean would make you feel comfortable, especially for honeymoon couples to get the romance with the ocean sunset and candle light dinner served on our private beach to make it even more remarkable and memorable one to make the relations much stronger.! Get the Strategic feeling with us!

Stayed there with family in Sep 18. One of the most enchanting sea view stays in Kerala. Nothing can beat the night spent in Palm Tree Bungalow . Palm tree Heritage and Palm Tree Bungalow are both wonderful properties. Had a great time.

The Palm Tree Bungalow was one of the best places we have stayed at. This is far far better than PalmTree's normal rooms and if you can pick the corner bungalow besides the seashore then you are in for a treat. It has a small garden space where you can find a hammock facing the sea. Luckily we could spot dolphins from our hammock in a nice sunny day. The space inside the bungalow is quite big for 2-3 people. There was no TV which was great, as it is supposed to be a cut-off trip from the busy world. You can listen to sea-waves all day and it was super peaceful. Pros: Spacious room and washroom, sea-facing, hammock and peacefulness, Cons: No night service in the room, I am not sure if they had internet in the room, At mornings a group of fishermen come everyday for catching fishes (I loved it and also worked with the fishermen to pull the large net, awesome experience) I would recommend this place at Varkala (it's not on the cliff but right beside the seashore), ideal place for couples, The owner Babu takes care of the guests with a lot of care and he helped us upgrade to the Bungalow after seeing our disappointment with the normal side of the property. Thanks Babu for your help throughout.

The best is the location - by the sea and shore. This shore is not the best as the sand is black, but there are some beautiful white beaches in Varkala. Honeymoon cottages and their bathrooms were quite spacious and clean. The staff were very courteous and ever obliging. The down sides were - no swimming pool, and lots of dogs and flies around! These needed attention. Breakfast was just basic.

J'ai apprécié l'établissement lui-même, sur la plage Odayam, où se mêlent notre vie de vacances et celle des pêcheurs. I did appreciate the hotel on Odayam Beach, where tourists and fishermen share the spot. Le professionnalisme et la gentillesse souriante de tout le personnel. Efficient and friendly smiling staff, wathever they do. Special thanks to Singh, Sasi, Sureesh, Zul, Prasad and mother, all of them, and M. Babu himself. Tout est fait pour faciliter le séjour, et j'ai vraiment aimé la lenteur de la vie, la nourriture proposée, l'emplacement de Palm Tree, l'entretien des chambres, des jardins . They try to do their best so your stay is easy, and I appreciated slow way of living, tasty food in front of the beach in the morning and at night. Gardens and rooms are well-kept. I was in a little house , after Blue Water, and it was so pretty to be there, with smiling and caring Prasad. Enjoy is the great word in Palm Tree. And they let them you enjoy in the way you decide. I booked again and I'll come back february 2018. :-) in S3 room would be great :-)
