      We booked into this hotel for a month and after a room move (the allocated one was in a difficult position for our old bones!) This is probably one of the nicest hotels in the area (and one of the most expensive). Unusual for us we elected to have a full board option which had its benefits. It certainly saved us a lot of money as the menu costs were quite high. Food on the whole was good and the occasional buffets were usually superb and gave more variety. Breakfasts were plentiful with a lot of different Indian tastes on offer. We both found the restaurant dull and boring and found that we were sometimes the only occupants. The TV was permanently on (unnecessarily) which sadly became a magnet to the staff rather than serving! A lovely pool with adequate (but outdated loungers) which clearly needed to be updated. Tiling round the pool had seen better days but the atmosphere was no real complaints. We managed to get the Pool Boy to hold more than just Beer in his fridge and once this happened life was far better. Reception staff were lovely and all Management we met were helpful. In a month one or two things will always go wrong but they were always dealt with promptly. Room cleaning was very good. If we are in the area again we would certainly revisit. All in all a good month.

      My husband and I have been visiting and staying at this stunning, idyllically located hotel for the last fifteen years, and it's truly home away from home - every member of staff treats you just like family. Such impeccable, and professional service, and no request is ever too big. Every need is catered for by the exceptional members of staff, and we'd specially like to mention Jomilin, and Khalid at front desk; Ashwati from senior operations; Sudeep from travel desk and head of security; General Manager, Shobhit Kaushal who is incredibly helpful, hospitable, and manages such a fantastic team; and, all of the housekeeping staff who work tirelessly to keep all rooms spic and span (Each room comes with breath-taking, picturesque views of either the gardens, or sea, with the calming sounds of tropical birds surrounding you). We missed Santosh this time, but he, too, is amazing! Dining (and breakfast) at the hotel is a beautiful experience, with fine ambience, and delectable, world-class cuisine, by Chef Ratheesh and his team, including Shiva. No special request is ever denied. We couldn't recommend staying at this hotel enough - you'll have memories to last a life-time!

      We spent 5 glorious days at this wonderful hotel. Comfortable rooms with plenty of space.Superb on suite and a balcony to sit on to watch the sun go down over looking the gardens. The staff from room,reception,pool and restaurant were excellent. Food good and for what we ate,cooked fresh from order.They also always had an extensive buffet which was also very good. A great place to stay to explore the area.

      My mother and I stayed here for 8 nights in February 2020 and we couldn't be happier with the experience! The rooms were beautiful and clean, and the staff really went out their way to make sure that we had everything we needed at all times. They were happy to share personal stories and recommendations on what to see and do in Varkala/Kerala and were incredibly service-minded!! This is a charming hotel with an amazing vibe (you feel like you are part of a family), everyone is very welcoming and caring - not at all like many luxurious hotels where the staff is polite but not so friendly. The pool was nice (clean and perfect temperature), not crowded at all. The resturant serves fantastic food, even though it is a little more expensive than the ones by the beach (which isnt surpricing). The beach is white and beautiful, not crowded, clean and just a 5 minutes walk from the hotel. Sure, the hotel may need some touch up here and there but we'd recommend anyone who wants a nice stay in Varkala to choose this hotel! People complaining about their stay here are most likely people who constantly complains, OR maybe people who miss the 5-star quality you would expect in the capital cities of Europe. If you could see past that, this is an amazing hotel!
