Akhil Beach Resort
Ranked #17 of 52 Hotels in Varkala
Reviewed 1 February 2012

Beautifully landscaped gardens. Lovely pool area with clean (something of a rarity in South India) chairs and towels. Cottages spotless,spacious and tastefully furnished. It all seemed recently renovated but a few essentials missing like fridge,drinking glasses,safe and hairdryer. Bed large but very hard.Staff all friendly and smiling. Wifi freely available.. Food quite poor but plenty of alternatives available at Varkala beach a short stroll away.We enjoyed our stay here and would like to have stayed longer.

Beautiful and clean property with the most lovely staff....front desk even made us a delicious fruit plate after the restaurant was closed and we were seeking a snack. Restaurant has a huge menu and all the food is delicious....fresh salads, wide variety of breakfast options, juices, teas, traditional Indian dishes, other Asian treats. Yum!

Yoga classes on the roof top at 8 am are perfect.....the teacher is a well-versed Sivananda yogi. The Ayurvedic doctor is a doll....very adept at diagnosing aliments and prescribing treatments. She is great at figuring out one's dosha and proper diet too.

Pool is gorgeous and clean, constantly attended by waiters, cleaners, house keeping. Towels available all the time.

Stayed for a week and can't wait to return! Thank you!!!!

good service good room and good prices
recommended.actually akhil was beyond my expectation.they have got an awesome swimming pool and clean rooms.they almost provide each and every facilities like room cleaning,restaurant,beer parlour,even yoga classes and ayurvedic treatment and a good laundry service.and we never faced a bad experience there.i can strongly recommend rajapark for those who need a quiet and calm atmosphere.they have got a wonderful staff,they never say no to you,whatever you need you can tell to reception manager nitin,and he will fulfill all your needs.rajapark maynot be luxurious destination,but it is simply superb.
