We were here in the beginning of may and were completely happy. I travel a lot and lived in many and many hotels in different countries and cities (up to 8 per month, and my friend too), and we both think that this place is among best hotels we've ever been! And mostly - because attitude and hospitality of people here! The staff is friendly, I mean _really_ friendly. Gopal is a professional at a very high level. He helped us with transport and excursions and shopping, all for a good price. I had problems with photocamera - this was also solved very fast. Next time we will go directly to this hotel, no other places=) The Palm Tree is very good - near ocean, 10 minutes to kliff, 10 minutes to yoga, 5 minutes to aurveda center, beautiful sunsets, delicious food. The rooms were clean and comfortable, bathroom was also very good and clean. Room was with seaview, room service was also at the high level. Ocean is just near, so you can hear the ocean while falling asleep and see it when you wake up. The cozy beautiful restaurant is just near the sea, and food - is the best we tried in Varkala. On my last evening I had best dinner ever! Next time in Kerala - I will 100% go to Varkala and stay in this hotel! Actually, I am thinking of writing a poetry about this wonderful place=) Thank you guys for my best impressions of the year!

Room Tip: all rooms are perfect=)

We really enjpyed our stay here. We had a few days in the annex and 4 days in a room with a sea view in the main hotel. We found the beds comfortable, the staff pleasant, humerous and obliging. The food was delicious.
We found it better to be away from the slightly tacky hubub of the cliff in Varkala but the walk up there was pleasant and we did it most nights for supper. However eating on the beach in the evening at the Palm Heritage was glorious and we found our time there peaceful and relaxing. We loved the fishermen in the mornings, though this was also the best time to swim in the sea, which was at other times slightly frightening.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a pleasant few days at the beach.

Room Tip: A sea view is always good

We stayed in a bungalow which was bliss and well worth the extra £10 a night. The staff are so friendly and probably some of the best we've ever come across during our travels. The food is sublime. Anything you order you will be astonished at how good it is. Truly the best food we had during our travels through India.
The little beach is serene and out of the way although if you do want some more action you can walk 15mins down the beach or get a tuk tuk for under a £1 (the beach walk is the best though).
Babu is a true gent and will bend over backwards to organise anything for you which he did (Kerala back water trip - got to do this).
thank you so much to everyone at the palm tree heritage we'll definitely be coming back.

Room Tip: See if you can negotiate a bungalow

This place was quite amazing, from the time we checked-in the staff were courteous and welcoming. They have a private beach where the water isn't too deep and a 10-15 min walk takes you to the near-by cliff beach restaurants. We were 4 friends & took the villa option which was 2 balconies & 2 rooms for 5k. The place also has a dine setup on the shore which is brilliant in the evenings & late night for dinner. The staff: Gopal, Babu & Meshaal were amazing and very friendly. I would highly recommend this place for beach lovers...

Room Tip: Choose the villa, it has the best view!!!

We were a family of two adults traveling with our nine year old daughter in April 2014 and stayed in this beautiful beachside resort for three days. We had a wonderful time during our stay. The small stretch of beach barely fifty metres away from our room and the location of the beach away from the touristy Varkala beach added to the appeal. The rooms were clean and the huge bathroom with a tub was a nice touch. Staff were very helpful, particularly when there was a power outage at night. Though the service at the restaurant could have been faster, the food was good and very reasonably priced. Overall, we had a fantastic beach holiday experience.
