From my ground floor room, the sound of the ocean breaking on the rocks only 50 metres away made this a pleasant place to stay for a couple of nights. Had I been there longer, I would have been disappointed that I didn't have a room on the upper levels, preferably one overlooking the Arabian Sea. The room was pretty average but value for what it cost, and the price included breakfast. My room was not cleaned and towels were not replaced. As others have commented, the staff were very welcoming, almost to the point of trying too hard to ensure their guests were looked after. Meals at the Palm Tree restaurant were okay, although the baked group stuffed with garlic, butter, green chillies and limes was outstanding. This is a quiet and very pleasant location with a good beach, if you want to avoid the madness of the cliff top a beach south of here.

Room Tip: Ask for an upstairs room on the beach side.

Eating breakfast on the beach watching the fishermen pull their catch up, and delivering it directly into the hotel kitchen.

The food is brilliant, and the beach is a relaxing paradise.

It's located a little walk from the main strip so it's nice and quiet and you can join the hustle and bustle of the strip in 10 min.

'No problem' was the answer to any requests we made. Service was definitely the best part of our stay at Palm Heritage. Everyone was super nice and friendly, and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable.
The location is good, by the water and a little away from the madness of the cliff. You can watch the fishermen at work every morning from your window. It's quite amusing.
The rooms are nice, clean and well maintained with all the amenities - hot water, AC, fridge, etc. No complaints. Food was good too.
Would recommend this if you're looking for a peaceful and relaxing break.

Palm Tree Annex was great, we had awesome service and were well looked after. In close proximity to the North Cliff where you will find restaurants, yoga and shopping. Really nice looking hotel by the water. Safwan, a staff member, was very helpful and pleasant during our stay.

After an early (and delayed!) train journey to Varkalla we arrived at the Palm Tree Annex and were welcomed with many smiles and a refreshing drink.

We were shown to our room in the annex with a superb sea view. The room was fully equipped - AC, hot water, fridge, four poster bed everything you would expect.

Like the review mentioned before, the annex is literally next door to the Palm Tree Heritage and is linked by a small pathway. The hotel has a private beach and one of the best restaurants we ate in whilst in India. Thoroughly recommend the fish curry and coconut rice :)

I cannot give enough praise to ALL the staff at this hotel. They are what made our experience at this hotel so enjoyable. They looked after us very well and even let us join their game of cricket during sunset...amazing!!!

I would thoroughly recommend this hotel and am already looking forward to making a return.

Me and my friend travelled Kerala and having stayed at 6 different hotels, Varkala was our final stop and all i can say is 'WOW - what a great way to end the trip!'. Palm Tree Annex is part of Palm Tree Heritage - the apartment itself is only a stone's throw away from main hotel reception and restaurant.

Upon arrival the staff were full of smiles, so attentive and helpful - the hotel manager, Babu gave us such a warm welcome, introducing us to his staff (including Annex manager, Safwan) - all great english speakers. The vibe from Babu and his staff was professional, honest, natural and laid-back and our stay got better each day. The room was clean complete with 4 poster-bed, balcony, shower with hot water, towels, fridge & complimentary bottled water).

The location is great, relaxing, calm and peaceful. The North Cliff is only (5min walk) - this is where all the tourist's and shops are. You can choose to go to busy beach by the cliff but i loved the private beach right by hotel.

The food was the best i had! I recommend coconut rice, fish curry, chicken pakora, red snapper fish cooked in banana leave washed down with their freshly made mango, carrot & ginger juice - AMAZING!

On our day of departure, we had a 4am flight from Trivandrum. Not only did Babu offer us a room for reduced rate (since we were not staying whole night), his staff arranged for taxi to take us to airport. We shared taxi with another guest and split the cost - a win win for everyone!

I highly recommend this hotel to couples, backpackers, families, friends - everyone! Thanks again to all Palm Tree's hospitality and i look forward to visiting Varkala in near future!
