There are rooms of a basic comfort or beautiful cottages at more than double the price. My lower rating about the comfort is because I stayed in a room, which is quite basic and small, although clean and comfortable.

The facilities in the hotel are excellent. The whole place looks like a nice 4 stars with a great pool. Staffs are very friendly and professional, which is refreshing in a place like India!

I only wish I could have stayed there much longer...

Room Tip: The only difference between deluxe and non-deluxe is a TV and hot water (I never used hot water by t...

I spent one night at the Preeth after I had the misfortune to book into the next door Shiva Garden (see separate review). The contrast couldn't have been greater. The staff here are professional and friendly. My room wasn't great but it was in a block that is being modernised and it was all they had available. It was clean with a decent bathroom. The bungalow rooms looked beautiful and the grounds and the swimming pool are fabulous. There is a little path from the pool area which allows you to take a short cut to the North Cliff restaurants. Even my basic room was a life saver after the horrible (and not much cheaper) accommodation next door, and had I not been moving on I would have happily stayed at the Preeth for longer.

Many thank from the the bottom of my heart to doctor Diuyaraui and masseurs for greate aurveda massage!

Have just returned from Varkala having stayed at Akhil Beach Resort again this year as part of the 'Shining Minds' yoga retreat group. The hotel rooms are being updated slowly nevertheless my little delux room was exactly same as last year. Comfortable and clean. Staff are so very helpful and always smiley, room staff are always willing to clean room when requested. We ate here a couple of times this year and can recommend the food especially the fish molley - yummy. Food a little more expensive than on the cliff but not too much. Will return, hopefully.

Room Tip: I took ear plugs to cut out various sounds. Didn't need mosquito plugs as the fans seem to keep...
