One must stay and enjoy the hotel facilities and the best hotel in Varkala both for business & leisure. Swimming pool , food, staff service and so on..... Ayurvedic massage is add-on value. Excellent view.

I along with my family visited your resturant on 16th September for our wedding anniversary day. We were treated well by the entire restaurant staff. We had ordered steak, nasagorian fried rice, Kerala fried chicken,butter chicken,cream caramel, ice cream, poratta along with the soup. I must congratulate the chef who has provided with delious food which we won't forget. More than that Mr.Bhiman who has served us been very polite, groomed properly and always there to check whether everything is okay. Thank you guy's for providing with a wonderful experience. Keep up the good work

We were there as a family for 3 nights in September, during Onam when there was lesser crowd. Had a cOmfortable stay with class service of Gateway. Warm and friendly service with soothing Ayurveda spa service. Very helpful and courteous staff. Restaurant and menu has to be improved.

Stayed here over a weekend and we were very pleased by the service, location and the rooms. The view from the room of the sea is spectacular. The rooms were quite comfortable and good, with some minor upgrades needed for the fixtures. Service was very good. In fact, they even helped us get transportation to Trivandrum during a day of unrest. The hotel is a short walk from the beach, which is OK and also a short walk from restaurants facing that beach on a cliff that serve some amazing seafood. The breakfast in the hotel was OK, and the restaurant is a bit cramped. If you are going to Varkala - and this is a good place to go - I would recommend this hotel.

This was my second stay at the gateway, very beautiful property and very efficient staff. Had travelled with family. The view from sea view rooms is just amazing. Its close to Varkala helipad which has a nice beach and lots of shacks serving some yummy food. This hotel is only about 45 mins drive from Kovalam so you get the luxury of visiting Kovalam beach and the Varkala beach. We had an excellent stay and will come back. Only one thing the pool is in desperate need of maintenance. All the tiles are breaking and might cut someones feet. My niece and nephew had a good time collecting all the broken small tiles but it is a health hazard.

Nice and relaxing resort, you can do as much as you want or as little as you want with relaxation in between. The staff were very helpful and the amenities were very adequate. The room was of a good size and loved the bathroom.

Amazing property . Our rooms were well appointed. The staff is gold. The customer service at the place was too good. The mosquitoe situation needs to be taken care of. The food was a MAJOR disappointment. The breakfast was below average at best. The best thing I had pasta carbonara for dinner.

we have stayed many times and always find staff excellent and very friendly nothing is to much trouble highly recommended for relaxing peaceful place to stay we look forward to staying again very soon

We loved the stay there. It is a little expensive compared to other properties, but it is in a beautiful location. However if you want a beachfront property, do not go there, since it is almost a km away from the beach.

The building itself looks colonial and has lovely lawns. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the sit outs have a lovely view of the pool and the sea. The food was great and so was the staff. A great place for a family get together, calm and serene, and there's lots to do around the place. A big thank you to Ashirbad and his lovely team, Chef Alex, i loved the biryani. We had a lovely stay, look forward to coming back.
