This is a small Taj property nestled among the lush green vegetation on a hillock.The hotel is impeccably maintained and has a small beautiful pool overlooking the sea. The property is 5 mins walk from the beach and one can walk down to the beach through the plantation from within the hotel itself. However, there is no private beach for the hotel. The best part of the hotel, apart from the view of the sea and the pool is the service. The staff goes out of the way to make guests comfortable. Everyone ,right from the front desk to the restaurant staff took good care of us.
The third best part was the rooms, both the size and the decor. We stayed in a sea facing room and the view from the room was awesome. The wall facing the balcony is made of glass, which gives uninterrupted view of the sea.The room size is quite big and also the bathroom. Other unique feature of the room is the glass wall which separates the room from the bathroom. Varkala itself is a laid back place and Taj Gateway makes the stay memorable.
There is a small restaurant attached to the hotel which serves delicacies.The buffet spread for the break fast was quite good and the food was sumptuous. As I have said earlier, the staff makes the restaurant even better by rendering great service!More
