Blue Water Beach Resort

Reviewed 25 February 2014

We stayed here for over two weeks to recover after travelling around Northern India. We stayed in one of the newer cottages, right by the sea. The staff were very friendly and the location was perfect for relaxing. It was away from the hustle and bustle of Varkala's North Cliff but within 20 minutes stroll when we felt like going there to eat. I did find the chairs in the restaurant very uncomfortable, so we tended not to eat there in the evenings. Otherwise, this is a good choice if you are looking for somewhere by the sea. The beaches are smaller, but much more pleasant than the rather grubby sands in Varkala itself

Room Tip: The newer cottages are much bigger than the original cottages and this is worth bearing in mind if y...

The best place in varkala with a beautiful seaview. We spent 4 days, and loved every minute of it.
The staff were really friendly and welcoming, the food was delicious. The location is so peaceful and calm, the cottages were beautiful and we saw so many dolphins morning and evening.
No.1 place to relax, I will definitely be back....,

Stayed here for 3 nights and had an amazing stay. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were beautiful and we could sit on the balcony and watch the sunset. It's just down from the cliffs and the beach is great for jumping in waves. Best of all were the dolphins seen in the sea at sunset. Wonderful.

A relaxing spot located just far enough away from the busy end of Varkala for it to be more chilled out. The grounds are the perfect place to relax and enjoy the view. Moving from the beach to the resort is easy. The food in the restaurant however, was not so good and was the most disappointing part of the hotel. Their fish dishes were good but majority of other items were not. The staff were very attentive and friendly. This was the most peaceful place we stayed during our travels around India. Watch out for the tax added to the cost as it came as a surprise to us even though it was advertised. The walk along the beach to and from the main strip is dark and a little dangerous feeling at night time so getting a tuc tuc is the best option.

BW is on the beach front and one can walk just down to the beach directly from the resort, it’s too close to the Sea " Fabulous" and best part is one can relish food on the sea facing beach restaurant which has a roof top wood cabin as well as open garden restaurant.

The entire property is Beautiful and every cottage has a beach view, we stayed in one of the wooden non AC cottages which were wonderful. The new cottages also have a great view of the beach, which is all Air Conditioned. Quality of service was just good, BW has a friendly atmosphere and even top management was at your service which was really impressive.

We could stay only for 3 days due to our tight schedule, any way we would definitely come back in August. We recommend these cottages for long stays not less than a week.

Stayed 3 nights here last week. Location is superb right on a clean beach. Up on a slight rise with lots of places to sit and relax, in the shade, with views over the beach and along to the cliffs of Varkala about 1km away. Sit and watch the traditional net fishing off the beach while having breakfast. 20min easy walk into town along the water with a few restaurant/bars along the way. Food was good if a little more expensive than in town. If you are looking for a 5 star hotel this is not for you. If you are travelling on a tight budget this is not for you. Its clean, basic but well put together (mossie nets over bed, aircon in some rooms), away from the hassle and haggle of town, and VERY relaxed. After numerous walks to town i'd say this is the pick of all the places along the beach to stay.

Room Tip: We were given 2 of the 4 rooms in the 4 room block. They were fine. An extra 10 meters to get in t...

This a nice place to stop when walking down the beach next to the Arabian Sea
relaxing atmosphere ideal for just a cup of coffee or a meal sitting in the lovely gardens of this resort which is at the heavenly odayam beach area.

Room Tip: Did not stay only stopped for coffee
