A new Ayurvedic center was built in the garden and also a little library/chill out-house is under construction! Next year when we come we will benefit...

We stayed at the Varkala Marine Palace for 4 days in August 2016. The hotel has individual cottages in traditional kerala style. The stay was very comfortable and the restaurant had some excellent food.

Myself and my partner stayed here for 10 days for a relaxing break in Varkala. We arrived at a time when there weren't many guests booked in so Mr Bhaskar offered us a choice of rooms. We initially chose one on the first floor with a sea view which was offered with a warning that we might hear a bit...

Location : There is another hotel called Varkala Palace – so be careful with your GPS – ask for the Helipad and Hospital and then theres a small very narrow lane leading to this resort.

We stayed in the Queen Room with Sea View for 2 nights.. The room is very spacious with large mattresses.. Bathroom is clean.. Got a nice little Kitchen area.. The location is excellent facing the sea.. Staff was very forthcoming whenever any help was required. I would say this place is value for money because of the location & service.

We spent 4 days of our Varkala vacation in this homely property. Excellent service by Bhasker and Vishnu. The USP for the property is its location right on the beach. Varkala is less commercialized on the beach compared to Kovalam and still virgin beach feeling is there towards cliff side. All commercial hub is on the cliff where one will...
