Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 March 2012

My friends and I recently returned from a whirlwind two-week tour of India, only loosely planned prior to departure - ending with 3 nights in Varkala. We chose Palm Tree Heritage based on its popularity on this site, however word has spread and (unsurprisingly) upon arrival all rooms were all booked. Babu was very welcoming and informed us that they recently (within the past few months) renovated a second part of the hotel a few meters down the beach road, which had a vacant room for the evening. While I can't speak for the main rooms, ours was similarly comfortable and clean as mentioned in prior reviews, with audible ocean sounds. The best parts were access to a quieter area of the beautiful beach where you can relax by day and enjoy meals by night, and the genuinely friendly staff. Also had the best red snapper of my life.

Palm Tree Heritage is a gorgeaous small hotel with pretty, immaculately clean and romantic heritage style rooms and your own porch, around a nice garden. Very comfy beds. It's located on a quiet beach, and you can enjoy any imaginal breakfast in the cosy restaurant while listening to sea. Or an evening meal right on the beach under the stars. Babu, the manager and his staff creates such a friendly atmosphere and took the the best our family during our stay. We will always remember them!

We stayed for a couple of nights at the end of a month long trip in India. It was just what we needed - the hotel is spotlessly clean with great staff and as previous reviews have said, Babu the manager can't do enough for you. The woodwork and carvings on the doors to the rooms are incredible, the amount of work that went into making this place a little paradise is evident.
Just thinking about it now makes us want to go back - just so relaxing sitting in the shade watching the fishermen bring in their catch, enjoyed eating the catch also. We had the best tiger prawns and the chef will cook them in whichever way you choose.
So glad we chose the Palm Tree Heritage.

We only arrived here today but first impressions are that this place is amazing.
Room is beautiful, beach is perfect, quiet and secluded, if you want to chill out and relax in lovely surrounding.
Excellent service, feel really welcome. Babu arranged our houseboat trip before we arrived and it was pure luxury.
Will write more after our stay.

Stayed for five nights at Palm Tree Heritage what a lovely relaxing place to end our first trip to India.The room we had was spacious and spotlessly clean and the maids did a fantastic job in making the room up.The restaurant was clean and the service was great the staff very help full.Babu the manager was very helpful and booked us taxis and things,and even managed to find a sandal I lost(a local dog took a shine to it and decided it may be edible,my own fault for leaving them out all night)but all was well at the end.

The beach was peacefull and clean and we had great fun in the sea dodging the breaking waves.The cliffs at varkala were about a 15 minute walk away so you could still hit all the restaurants and shops etc but return to the peace of Green Palm Heritage.It was like a little oasis.We intend visiting India again and if we are in the area we will without doubt stay at Greenpalm Heritage again and thank you for a nice stay and some fond memories!

We have been back from India from over a month and I would go back to Palm Tree Heritage tomorrow.
We travelled with two small boys (ages 3 & 5) and it was great for them.
We had a two room accommodation which was spacious and kept very clean, and the first place we stayed with mosquito nets on the bed (fantastic). The terrace was nice and big and you could sit out and watch the sunset on the ocean. (you could probably throw pebbles in the sea you are that close to the beach).
The staff were amazing, (thank you Babu).
The restaurant served delicious food, in the evening you could pick your own fish/tiger prawns etc We stayed 7 nights and did not go anywhere else. (we did leave for a few hours for a festival and one more time for a head massage).
Complete relaxation.
The children loved the beach, the sea, the garden, the room, the restaurant, the staff. Which made this the perfect place for a family. There was no through traffic to worry about and they were easy to see no matter where they were.
If you are after a perfect beach break, quiet, relaxing - go here!!!!!!!
