This is part of the taj group but not as luxurius as the vivanta taj series of hotels, but still worth 4 stars. The rooms in the middle are nice, to the right and left wing of the hotel they have no views at all. The service in the hotel is good, in the restaurant very bad- if you stay here dont eat here. The food on the menu, apart from the breakfast and buffets they offer, is overpriced and tasteless. the pool is very nice, but get up early to get one of the 8 sunbeds...if the hotel is full it is a bit overpopulated. It is 5 minutes walk from the beach. It is quite far though from Varkala's beach strip with restaurants etc- you will need a taxi.
