“Great welcome and well looked after by caring staff”
Reviewed 17 August 2012

We stayed for 6days at the end of a wonderful trip to India. I'd read about it online and on arrival was a little disappointed, however, My first impressions changed very quickly with the fabulous, attentive service of Boby and his team. Our 6 days at Palm Tree Hertiage was like living with an extended family.. Mr Babu and Boby looked after our every need including booking our superb cookery course and riverboat trip. Every evening we had fresh seafood and breakfast was fresh and plentiful. We particularly like the cold beers available on the veranda or down on the beach. A great find and enjoyable stay.

This place is just wonderful. It is away from the main row of hotels which are along the cliff which we liked. It took around 20 mins to walk along to the beginning of the main row of restaurants and around forty minutes to the main beach. The hotel itself is lovely and Babu was extremely helpful in organising our trip to the next place. Great breakfast in the morning. Definitely recommended as long as you don't mind the walking. Bring a torch for the night walk home.

Our family comprising me, wife , and two kids of 6 years and 3 years age stayed in this resort during last week of September 2011, we conformed the booking through email, did not pay any advance (if I remember correctly) we were received by Mr Babu (one of the nicest guys I come across in my trips) and he offered a 2 Bed room property instead of the single bed room property we booked at no extra cost..
the room are so luxurious , the Bath room is almost as big as many Bed rooms in the match box flats of Bangalore ...
He arranged auto for local sight seeing and suggested some good places ..
Babu tried his best to arrange a house boat ride at a reasonable price, but he could not get a deal so he arranged a country boat ride to a near by small island , which was a very nice experience .. My kids had a nice time in beach playing in sand and in the lawns of property.
They served the dinner on the beach , it was a very pleasant experience ..
Pros: luxurious property, Babu is so friendly and knowledgeable
Cons: Food , it can be better .. and can have more variety.

We were in Varkala to rest up but alas only for 1 night but what a pleasure it was. Everything from the room, service and location was perfect! Thanks Babu, Bobby and Shyam for making it a relaxing experience.

We choose Palm Tree Heritage from Trip Adviser because it was rated the best and it did not disappoint. Arriving off season we got a relatively good rate but the sea was rough and uninviting. The room was delightful in a Bali wood furniture style and the staff went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. We had freshly cooked seafood served at a table on the beach both nights we stayed and it was delicious. Internet was functional and breakfast was simple but pleasant. he whole stay was a pleasurable alternative experience. We used an inland hotel to go swimming at. We tried the beach walk north but there is nothing. The beach walk south is much more rewarding. You can enjoy the hustle bustle tourism of Vakala Cliffs and Beach at Palm Tree Heritage without being a part of them.

Room Tip: We stayed in the room next to the reception. It was fine.
