Varkala SeaShore Beach Resort
Ranked #11 of 102 Varkala B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 April 2014

Varkala is fast growing and North Cliff is bustling with activity. And so one can head to South Cliff for more calm and quite. And would definitely recommend Seashore as the best icing on the cake. We blocked a cottage online and the wonderful Mr.Shine replied. Arriving in March end, it was almost off season, and there was less occupancy and made the experience even better. Seashores staff is its greatest asset. Senior Saj, Younger Vishal and Arun with cook Rekha are the wonderful people who take efforts to run the place with utmost sincerity even if there is just one couple on the whole resort (us).
The great advantage is the view. Its bang on the South Cliff and you can peep into the bay where there is the south end of Papanasam beach where waves are crashing. You hear the waves 24/7.
Breakfast is simple and filling and fresh. Rooms are extremely clean and is top notch. AC and lighting are like home and furnishing in tastefully done. It has access to beach via a cliff stairs on rocks. Lots of privacy on beach and you can walk few hundred meters towards the main beach. So its a package with great stay, privacy and quite, walkways and best lawns and giid breakfast, (They dont have a full time kitchen for rest of your day). Mr.Shine and Seashore have been in Varkala for years and hence the best in service. (Take Auto or long walk via beach and again climb if you need to go to North Cliff and Market area. Night time, beach avoidable)

Room Tip: Rooms are smaller and set back. Cottages are wonderful spacious with sea view balcony. Opt for upper...

We stayed at the Sea Shore for 10 days over Christmas 2013 with our 8 year old son. Let me tell you: the place is an absolute gem!
From the pickup at the airport on we felt exceptionally welcome, well treated and highly valued as guests . Shine, the owner, is helpful in every respect. He is open and friendly and very loving about taking care of every detail about the place. This pleasant attitude reflects upon the staff who were all, without exception, incredibly nice and attentive.
The Sea Shore is located on top of the cliff, away from the crowds, and it is very serene and quiet with it's lush, very well maintained garden. Breakfast is served on the pattio and is tasty. The kitchen is spottless! Fruitsalads here were such a treat!! The rooms are very clean, tastefully decorated and spacious. A wonderful stay!
Shine was able to assist with every and any question, from restaurant tips to elephant rides... but the most incredible thing happened as we were checking out to go to the next hotel: Shine and his team organized the trip there, even came along to find the rather remote place for us! They checked in with us there to make sure everything was fine, and when it was time for the airport trip back Shine organized this as well including all the finepoints! Always with a smile, always very attantive, always incredibly helpful and humorus.
We really must say we can not reccomend this place enough! We absolutely LOVED our stay there and would advise anyone looking for a really wonderful, clean, very serene and very pleasant stay in a place with a goooood energy to absolutly book here :)
Thank you Shine, Shibili and your entire Team!

Room Tip: The view from the upper floor rooms is outstanding!

We stayed here for 2 nights, having booked 3 cottage rooms. Our experience was in line with the high expectations that were set from the reviews we read on trip advisor. The rooms were clean and seemed brand new, service was impeccable, and the location of the resort was fabulous - overlooking the sea and with good sea breeze all the time. Since the resort is perched on top of a cliff, the descent to the beach below was rather steep - though not a big problem. Breakfast was simple though decent and we would appreciated the service of lunch or dinner in the same resort. I would recommend this resort and would like to come back once more on my next vacation.

Basic bedrooms with all you need; gentle service; a lovely garden where you get a wonderful breakfast; close to several restaurants. A lovely beach, with the only con that you have to descend (and then climb) 110 steps (nothing wrong for health and diet (:-)

This is a great place in a stunning location at the top of South Cliff with views out over the sea and away from the hustle and bustle of North Cliff but within easy reach. The rooms are spotless and well appointed, particularly the bungalow rooms. Shine and his team are helpful and always have a smile. They work hard and the create a welcoming and laid back atmosphere. Shine took me up onto the roof to show me the solar thermal panel providing ample hot water. The beach at the bottom of the steep steps is lovely and nothing like as busy as further north and it is possible to walk south for miles along the beach. The current is strong though and the waves powerful so care is required. This is the sort of place you could stay for weeks and I wish we could have! Very relaxing retreat but with all that Varkala has to offer within walking distance. The garden is big and there is potential for more shrubs and colour around and between the palms. It would also have been nice to have had the option of being served a beer and nuts while sitting enjoying the stunning sunsets.

Best location in Varkala, on the Southampton Cliff.
With a nice garden and 110 steps down to the beach, this is perfekt, more relaxed than the more pushy North Cliff. With clean rooms, and a verk helpful staff this can be recommended for your stay i Varkala.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
It's a very beautiful piece of paradise. It's a guest house (I couldn't call it something so cold as a resort) that delivers excellent service with a low key spirit of wanting to make your experience as enjoyable as possible. The rooms are clean, comfortable and the higher-end suites are exceptionally lovely and all for prices that make this the very best value I have almost ever experienced in all my travels.
