To be true to the title and to cut through niceties, I'll emphasize 3 points most important for every tourist. 1. Care free transportation to and from Karthika Plaza Resort. They pick you up as far as from Trivandrum Airport; give you a ride for any business in Varkala and even Trivandrum (50 km away), but also advise you about...

We had a brilliant stay. Rajesh is a great host, always willing to go the extra mile to ensure we had a great time. He ferried us round, recommended local restaurants and ensured our onwards travel was all organised. The accommodation is very clean, and the breakfasts are lovely (ask for indian breakfasts). The staff all take great pride in...

We chose this small hotel on the basis of your rating. We were not disappointed. In many years of travelling in India and elsewhere we have never had such outstanding personal service from Rajesh and his staff. The rooms were comfortable and spotlessly clean; the breakfasts were excellent; the location was quiet but convenient and Rajesh provided free transport to...

Just back from India. Stayed in the Karthika Plaza as our first stop. Loved it. Varkala is far better than Kovalam. Quiter, better beaches and less like Benidorm as I found Kovalam to be. Karthika Plaza really relaxing. Rajeesh, the manager and his team fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble. From sorting out my e mail problems and helping to...

Te hotel is located away from the main beach. This is not a disadvantage because Rajesh and his staff are so helpful. They drove us to deserted beaches where we could walk back to Varkela, and offered to pick us up from restaurants at night. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Rajesh even went to the railway station at...

We had 2 air con rooms for 4 nights just after Christmas. It's in a great location as it's walking distance to the cliff top but far enough away from the madness. The garden and birdlife are great and we spent some happy hours sipping G & T on the upstairs verandah catching up with our friends. The rooms were...

It's a stunning place, a very nice accommodation . It's very cosy and the location is perfect. Rajesh is the best host we've ever had.

My husband and I stayed for 2 weeks in Karthika Plaza. All the places that we have stayed in Kerala have been great but this one is the winner! It feels more like a homestay then a hotel though the family doesnot live there. For the first week as it was still low season we were the only guests and...
