A very relaxing place to stay.Posted Mar 9, 2014
Pros: The resort has a very nice setting along the lake and waterway. It is set out very nice with a great pool and places to relax along the lake.
Cons: The hotel should invest in a few canoes.
Location: Go out on the waterways and lake. Varakala beach is a bit disappointing, since it is far from clean and when we visited it, it was very crowded.
We stayed in one of the lakeside rooms, which was very nice. It was clean, comfortable and had a very nice view of the waterway. The restaurant serves very nice food and it manager was very helpful is explaining and suggesting very tasty meals. All of the staff are very helpful and professional. It has a few boats that we took out to explore the lake and waterways. We also used it as a base to visit the beach, since from our experience, the hotels on the cliffs and north of Varakala were expensive and very tacty.

Must have a car and driver to see anythingPosted Jan 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel was spotlessly clean and the staff were very helpful - but we were very upset when we arrived to be told that there was a compulsory 2000 rupees per person charge for the gala dinner of which we had no prior notification - and there was no other food available that night. the entertainment was extremely long winded and the food was not very good. however they describe themselves as a retreat - very appropriate. The surroundings are beautiful, the hotel is beautiful - but if you want to do anything other than enjoy the scenery - you really need a car - the place is very difficult to find and has no social entertainment at all. If this hotel provided a shuttle service to the town of Varkala it would be perfect - it is just too far out. Fantastic for meditation and total 'get away from everything' and everybody.

Great pleasure to be therePosted Jan 17, 2013
Placed in the middle of nowhere, it takes a while to get there. Next city is approx 20 km away. Unless you are going for a Yoga or relax treatment for a week or more, it might not be the optimal place. Rooms are a bit pricy, but quality of food and related prices will compensate overall. Wonderful staff, very helpful and friendly.

nice placePosted Jan 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
It was a really nice place. Everything was good except I wished the restaurant had more selection. Also they don't have a liquor licence.
