We had a good time here. The restaurant makes good food too... Although the buffet breakfast isn't something to write home about. Distance from the beach shouldn't be a factor coz the walk is very short.

The hotel has pool facing rooms and garden facing rooms. The swimming pool is located in the centre of these rooms making it look beautiful. The rooms are neat and clean with good room service. The restaurant has a good variety of dishes to choose from which are moderately priced. Staff goes out of the way to assist you. The cliff is walkable distance from the hotel and it takes 7 minutes to reach there.

Room Tip: Choose pool facing rooms for better view

Good small resort. 10 minutes walk to Varkala cliff- a must watch place with thrilling view of sea. Food was good. Kerala Specialities were good (veg). You can Banana fry.
Value for money. Only problem is going to Cliff/coming from Cliff during night time.

We stayed in the cottage which has 2 bedrooms, perfect for a family. Rooms are very clean and the beds are comfortable, even the extra bed. The pool is nice and well kept. The breakfast is ok, with better coffe it would be better. Very nice and attentive staff. The hotel is good value for money. The walk to the beach is short. Many good yoga places near the hotel.

Its a simple hotel, is clean, provides a good service. Its not actually close to the beach, a bit of a walking distance. Restaurants close at around 9:00 pm. Tried their breakfast, its mostly catered for non-Indian palate, which is fine. The Wi-Fi is steady, not high speed but good enough. Accessibility is only in the lobby and pool area. They just have one restaurant. The local fish curry from this restaurant is absolutely out of the world. Do try it.. The rooms are spacious, like little cottages which face the pool. We chose the upstairs ones, I understand for the lower ones,you do manage to get Wi-Fi in the rooms.

Room Tip: When we called to make a reservation, my kids are above 12 and they insisted on taking another room...

After 4 weeks travelling around India, the Deshadan was a good place to chill. Rooms are pleasant, a/c & fan. Breakfasts were good, staff were cheerful & always helpful. My only adverse comment, is the swimming pool needs some TLC.
I stupidly left a pair of walking boots in the taxi at Cochin Airport. I rang up the hotel, the manager, contacted the driver, spoke to a guest, and a few days later I was re-united with my boots in the UK! Well done Deshadan.
Varkala is located on a cliff, overlooking the Arabian Sea. Wonderful seafood. Try the Marlin, tandoori style at the Sea Queen, you won't be disappointed.
Do take a torch for walking back after dark.
