For the second year in a row, we spent some of our time in India at
Marine Palace Hotel in Varkala. We came back as the owner and staff are very friendly, going out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The location is right on the beach which is beautiful, as it affords the breeze, which is a must at this time of year. The accommodation and grounds of the hotel are very well kept, with much attention to detail.
This hotel is a must if travelling to Varkala.

Varkala Marine Palace is situated right on the beach . The rooms can't be more than 50 metres from the beach. The sea view rooms are spacious ,with a small kitchen and ensuite shower and toilet. The bedroom has ample storage and hanging space and has optional air conditioning. The cleaning staff are delightful, although having limited English are willing and helpful. Soumaya's Kitchen is the attached restaurant and make the best fish moulee of the restaurants by the beach . We sampled them all! The restaurant is managed by Vishnu who put himself out for one member of our party who is gluten intolerant. She told us that he made the best dosa's of our trip!
Bhasker and Jai could not do enough for us, especially when one of our party was bitten and had a reaction which hospitalised her. Jai accompanied us when we went to visit her and smoothed the way and Bhasker was ever willing to drive us to the hospital at night to save us having to get a tuk-tuk. I can't praise them enough and would recommend the Marine Palace for anyone wanting to chill out . This is our second visit and we will certainly be going back again!

Room tip: Sea view rooms with optional air conditioning

We had an upstairs room with a balcony and even a chaise longue! The photos on booking.com didn’t do the place justice at all. It was a beautiful old style villa. Very spacious, lots of storage, a small kitchen, outside shower and a large comfortable bed, also the balcony had a view of the sea. Jai was there to welcome us, he also booked us our onward train journey which saved us a lot of hassle. It’s situated at the bottom of the cliff so is very chilled out. A real gem actually. We dined at Soumya’s restaurant which is on the premises, and had the tastiest Keralan food here of our whole holiday.....the local fish curry and the prawn one! Was delicious! Only had 2 nights here, I would of loved longer.
I highly recommend.
