View from Hotel is nice but quality of service provided by Hotel are definitely not value for money. No proper ac cooling so they arranged table fan. Definitely not expecting if you are paying for 4-star hotel. Exhaust was not working. For one day stay, we had switched our room still the same issue. No proper car parking space, tap leakage in bathroom, ants in room, no proper bedsheets, breakfast was also not good. Afterall one can avoid this property. Not at all looks like a 4-star one. It is like 2-star hotel provides much better facility than this hotel. Totally Avoidable.

My worst hotel experience till date.. Unwashed linens, cleaning was very poor and waist bins with waist left unattended. Poor quality and worst service in restaurant. No proper AC , Hot water for name sake..my half time during the stay waisted in fixing basic issues. The hotel needs complete renovation before it takes any guest.

An amazing experience and a wonderful look from the hill top and sea shore. The place is also known for annual rituals ( called as PAPANASAM). You can get good local & international food from the surrounding restaurants. Can reach by by road/ train. Nearest railway station VARKALA SHIVAGIRI. This place is known to the the Saint SRI NARAYANA GURU and his ashramam.
