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.
