Recent guest reviews

Although it's a little walk to the beach it's a cozy place to enjoy the pool and the natural surrounds ,,,, staff are very helpful ,,,,, it has a hammock and I had wonderful food at this resort . The rooms are well set out around the pool , I could have stayed longer ,,,

Stayed at this cliff resort for 1 day, great in terms of location near to beach. Rooms are small but very comfortable. Needs to improve breakfast as only limited choices. Pool is nyc and would recommend to everyone.

We had one night here as part of a tour, stayed in the cottage just outside reception. Room was fine, comfy bed. Didn't use the pool, and though it looked nice enough, there is not much space so all the sunbeds seemed to be facing into the pool which was a little off-putting. If you hoped for a private swim this wouldn't be the best pool to swim in. Still, food was good at breakfast and lunch. Beach not far away with night markets and restaurants, felt safe walking around there at night however it is dark and a bit confusing finding your way back. Have a torch and make sure you remember the way.

this was the last hotel that we stayed in on a tour of Kerala. We stayed on for 5 more days to enjoy the laid back resort of Varkala. We found this to be a lovely Hotel especially for the price. Good breakfasts and evening meals - mainly local fair not European breakfasts but toast and cereals available. The pool was nice and there were some loungers around the pool if ;you choose to take the sun.The staff were very friendly and helpful, our room was nice, clean and spacious again bearing in mind the price. The hotel is a ten minute walk from the beach - but this was not a problem and meant that the area was quiet at night. Ask for a room overlooking the pool. Complimentary water every day helped.Good air conditioning. Definitely a pleasant place to stay.

A short walk from the beach, with a decent pool and loungers, friendly owner and good staff, the rooms just seem tired and in need of an update. That includes modern electrics with recharging points. No safe, and the hairdryer provided (on request) looked as if it was from the 1950s with scorched cable. The food was good too. Tough judgement as it has a lot going for it.

Stayed for one night here, but should have stayed for longer. Excellent Resort, very clean and spacious rooms, very helpful and welcoming staff.Quiet location, the best hotel in our trip to Kerala.Food was very good. Beach is very nice,there is a steep slope to get to the beach because Varkala is on a Hill Top.Must stay here for minimum 2 Nights, nice swimming pool.

I was booked two poolside rooms on 04-02-2018 for RS. 8500 for one day. But room size is very small, toilet is not good. In morning , no hot water coming through tab so given in bucket. So don't book this hotel and rate should be not more than 2000 rupees.

What a lovely place to stay. Spacious clean rooms surrounding a fantastic pool with beautiful gardens and hammock area. Open to air restaurant with delicious meals served by attentive staff. So well run in every respect. We stayed extra nights in order to take advantage of this wonderful place, and we're really reluctant to leave. Lots of repeat customers said the same. Can't wait to return. Thanks to the whole Deshadan Team x

It was our first trip to varkala and I was skeptical about the hotels. But to my surprise I found this calm and good hotel near varkala beach. Staff was very helpful and polite. Helped us in renting a bike to roam around and with train booking to kanyakumari. We wish to visit again :)

First good sleep in India. Excellent lunch buffet on arrival. Pretty setting amongst the trees; clean pool. Not far from the popular beach, though you have to know the route (we got lost, but that led us to an interesting explore). Poor wifi.
