Our stay at Hindustan beach retreat was not planned, it was a matter of no other choice due to heavy rush during Diwali break in November 2016. Our travel agent suggested us to choose this resort as there were no other options in Kovalam at beach side. We had a day visit to Kovalam too and trust we were so...

This is an average hotel and is closest to the Papanasam beach.Frankly,the beach is not worth visiting and we regretted staying at Varkala for 3 nights.The cliff above the beach is a relatively happening place, but the views from this hotel is n't very pleasing. Staying at this place for more than a day is certainly not a great idea.

We were booked in here as part of our tour and were very disappointed with the rudeness of the reception manager who when we requested a room with a balcony said none were available and we had no choice but to accept the room they offered!!! After making numerous calls he turned out he was right as everywhere else was...

Right in front of the beach. Every room has sea view from the balconies. Nice breakfast arrangements at rooftop restaurant. In room facilities and normal restaurant rates are one a higher side, other better options are available all around in varkala. Overall a good stay and always recommended to sea lovers.

We went to this place for a lunch. The Hotel is situated right on the Pabanasam beach and the sea view from the 4th floor restaurant is amazing. We went there in the noon time and ordered for a fish-curry meals. Except two of us no one was their except few staff. The food is average, and certainly not worth...

Its the best hotel at the beach. Rooms are spacious, meal specially breakfast is very tasty. Bang for bucks. The staff might need further training and some minor maintenance could to done to make it a five star rating, however their spa provides authentic massage at 1200rs per hour(a bargain for me)...The beach has high tide since at least last...

Go for executive or deluxe rooms. Staff is very polite and helpful. They give more efforts behind maintenance, good breakfast variety and good tasty / quality food. Hotel is located at Papanasam beach, beach is also very clean and lots of options to dine out at beach side near hotel. Nicely maintained swimming pool.

Spacious rooms. Tasty North indian food. A big plus point for the location. It is situated on the varkala beach. Only reason to give 4 starts is that they started there breakfast late.

The hotel/lodging house is no where near "As shown on TV". The internet pics are highly misleading. The next door eateries are worth visiting. They have half cut mineral water containers as mugs in the bathroom. Even the ashtrays were not emptied. .....not recommended.
