Akhil's a wonderful place for stay. It's like a forest feel coverd with palm trees and other variety trees. Nice pool for kids and family. Well maintain garden. We watched variety type of birds here. Delicious food in restaurant. F&b manager deals highly appreciated. Nice staffs especially front office. This hotel personally i am Reccomonding for all.

Located about 5 mins behind the North Cliff we found this a great location, nice to come away from the cliff at night to total peace and quiet.
The pool is also a big plus, one of the biggest and cleanest in the area and perfect place to end lazy beach days! Hotel grounds are beautifully kept and very clean.
We only had one breakfast at the hotel and it wasn't great, would recommend eating outside to be honest. At night the restaurant /bar closed early, which is fine but even though people were there skyping and using laptops (wi fi was patchy around the resort) the lights and fans were turned off...
We had a garden cottage and seemed to have a damp problem, rooms were cleaned if asked but this only extended to clean towels and sheets, no actual cleaning..
Staff were ok, we were given wrong information by reception re buses onwards so check out bus/train times elsewhere.
Also there was no yoga while we were there, their yogi was ill and no replacement, but there are so many other places to choose from it's not a problem just needed to be made aware...
Having said all of the above this is a good location the pool is fabulous and rooms are big, think there is just some way to go on the service level.

A lovely place with a nice pool and friendly staff...a perfect choice for accomodation in the area.
I truly hope the renovation is done and have a great new look, all set for the season.
The Ayurvedic Massage centre is awesome with a talented doctor.
Good Luck & Keep up the good work!

We booked to stay 3 nights in this hotel and enjoyed it so much we ended staying 5. We booked into the pool view cottage rooms which were very large and with a good size balcony. The rooms were very clean and well presented with good choice of cable TV and wi fi . The pool was clean and pool towels were plentiful. The hotel is set in well maintained grounds. The beach is a 5 min walk Altogether the staff were very professional and friendly and would recommend any one staying in Varkala to stay here.

Stayed for 3 nights at about 3000 rs per night. Stayed in one of the pool view cottage rooms which was really very nice and had great air con and fan and lovely beds and decor. Handy to have pool and ayurvedic centre on site and found this reasonable. About 5 mins close stroll to the beach. Only con was that there was a bit of noise at night from bars nearby and chanting but this was nothing to do with hotel. No problem recommending this and would stay again.
