Want to be treated like a king or queen? Then I suggest you try the Karthika Plaza. Just returned from a six week stay there and I cannot recall such service in any hotel I have used. And believe me I have used many in my extensive travels throughout Asia and the world. The exceptional service starts before you even arrive at the hotel. A complimentary airport pickup - unique in Varkala - delivers you into the welcoming arms of Rajesh and his small but eager and efficient team. From there on in it's plain sailing. The rooms whether aircon or non or one of the three more luxurious are all kept meticulously clean - in six weeks I did not encounter an insect - very unusual in a hot country. I did have a little visitor from the garden - a beautiful chameleon - but they don't count as pests - the opposite in fact as they have a voracious appetite for insects. And speaking of the garden - it's a beautiful peaceful area with many tropical plants. The hotel may not be on the cliff but that is no bad thing as you feel more part of the real Varkala being in close proximity to the very friendly local people. And anyway the hotel "chauffeur"will have you down on the beach or take you back within minutes. This service is not just restricted to beach runs as I had to make trips to a dentist in Varkala and Rajesh insisted on driving me and also waiting ( on one occasion for almost an hour)to drive me back. I could go on and on about how good this place is but other reviewers have beaten me to it. So read the other reviews and make your own mind up.
Thanks Rajesh and everyone at the Karthika for the fabulous holiday.
