I bring a group of 30 college students form the US every year to India for 3-4 weeks. This year Idecided to bring them to varkala for 3 days and I was so glad we stayed at the Sanctum Spring Beach Resort. They were incredibly accommodating to my group, arranging transportation to and from the airport at reasonable rates, getting a doctor for sick students. Working with on the breakfast menu for our group.

It was quiet enough being away from the main strip but still right on the cliff with easy access to the beach and transportation to town just downstairs.

The manager of the hotel was also really helpful without always being in your face as is often the case with hospitality in hotels in India.

I plan on bringing my group back here every year.

This resort is mind blowing. The best place to relax with family.Hospitality is so good that we were leaving that place with a heavy heart. The place to cherish your valuable moments with family.i strongly recommend people with official pressure to visit this place to relax. Food is homely and they serve in quite quickly.

We had originally booked this hotel for four days but we were so comfortable that we extended by another three. The location was perfect at the quieter end of Varkala Beach but it only took a few minutes to walk to all the excellent restaurants. The staff at the hotel could not be more hospitable and the manager, Roby, could not do enough to make our stay so memorable. He organised all our trips perfectly and was full of good advice about the best local restaurants and places of interest. Our room was spotless and the food was excellent. And in addition to all this the hotel was great value too! We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to any of our friends

We stayed at this resort for 4 days and the first thing that blew us away is the location. The resort is strategically located so that all rooms face the sea and that itself is enough value for money. The beach is about 5 mins away from the resort and has some great restaurants around it as well. The staff at the resort are extremely helpful and efficient. They went so far as going into the village at night and getting maggi for my daughter as that is what she wanted to have for dinner. the food and the rooms are very good and you will have no reason whatsoever to complain. Overall it was a fantastic, relaxing and rejuvenating experience and Varkala as a place is also highly recommended!
