Super location, quiet, secluded and yet we got to watch the fisherman launch and return on their small boats everyday. Service is great. The teak woodwork on the doors and furniture is beautiful.

Room Tip: We had the double room which was amply spacious for 4 people.

We just came back from Palm Tree. We spent a whole week there and it was really great. Our room was spacious including a big bathroom. The shower even had glass doors which is not common in many places around India. It has a perfect location walking distance close enough to the cliff ,but also quite convenient to keep you away from the noise at night. The only thing that you can hear is the sound of the sea (and also the mosque at night). It is wonderful to have breakfast just looking to the sea in the garden. One clear night they put the tables on the beach and we had dinner there with an amazing sky full of starts. Food is really delicious so you don’t need to go anywhere else if you don't feel like.
Babu the manager was always paying attention to every detail and the staff is great. Special mention to Gopal, a gem.
If we go back to Varkala we will go to this place again.

What began as a few days in Varkala turned into a week when my fiance caught a particularly rough respiratory infection and we decided not to travel further until his condition improved. Fortunately we were staying at the Palm Tree Heritage, and the staff could not have been more caring or kind. From quick room service, to arranging someone to accompany us to the local hospital's casualty department, to extra thoughtful touches, owner Babu, waiter Joseph and chef Gopal were more attentive than we could have hoped for. It also doesn't hurt that the lodge is situated on a quiet, non-commercialized beach, which made for an easy place to recover.

Even more important than these things, though, is owner Babu's relationship with the locals. He helps out the local fishermen when they need it and has established a positive rapport with them. The hotel is luxurious without being obtrusive, and it is set comfortably into the natural surroundings. In this way, Palm Tree Heritage displays exactly the kind of locally-sensitive, responsible development that tourism should support. Hopefully other proprietors in the area will take note and follow Babu's laudable example.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have bathtubs, so if you want one, be sure to ask.

After a long haul flight we arrived to a warm welcome from the owner Babu and his staff who helped carry our cases to the room. The room itself was very spacious, clean and we were impressed by the hand carved furniture. The view from our room was fabulous, overlooking the lovely garden area and the sea in the short distance. The beach was idyllic and a great way to spend the day relaxing away from the hustle & bustle of the main cliff area. We have great memories of having our breakfast whilst watching the local fishermen hard at work (in between arguing with each other!). There is a nice coastal path walk to the cliff area but you will need a torch when it goes dark. We've stayed at a few hotels in India (mainly in Goa) and the Palm Tree Heritage is our favourite and much more of a higher standard than other places we have stayed. The location is fantastic if you prefer somewhere quieter but not too far away from the main tourist area. We absolutely loved our 2 week holiday here and Babu organised a couple of day trips for us, he was very knowledgeable and made our stay a very pleasant one. Hopefully we'll make it back there one day : -)

This is my second trip to varkala and happens to be more memorable than the previous one for the single reason n thats the resort. Its a home away from home. A mini paradise i must say for all the people here are so friendly. A highly recommended place for couples. The rooms are awesome and very well maintained. The private beach adds to the beauty of the destination. There could be nothin better than sipping coffee in the evening with the waves washing your feet. A total get away from the hectic busy life... Cheers to this place !!!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great and unique.
