I stayed at Bluewater for six nights at the beginning of January on my own and I wanted to stay somewhere I'd feel safe and comfortable. Which I very much did. I've visited Varkala many times and I wanted somewhere with easy access to the beach and away from the more lively areas on the cliff. The location of this...

Nice little resort, basic but it is a budget hotel. Fabulous location. I travelled here with my twin adult daughters for a new year break after a difficult few months. We had emailed the manager to confirm that we could have 3 beds for 3 adults in a room and have email confirmation that we could. After a long journey,...

Blue water is a nice place to stay in Varkala. The hotel is located along the beach but not in town. You need a rickshaw ride (150 rupees) to get to town. The hotel grounds are nice. We stayed in a cottage, which was clean and comfortable. Nonetheless, the room is simple and lacks furniture to put your bags or...

We stayed here early December 15 for 1 week, so was quiet, which suited us. The resort is close enough to walk to the main shopping area and the most of the local restaurants, 15-20 min walk but it is also easy to get tuk tuk into town if you dont feel like walking. This is a small resort, bungalows...

As we walked up from the parking lot to our room, the first glimpse of the sea beyond the greens of the resort was like paradise. Stopping ourselves from just dropping our bags and getting into the sea till we completed the check in formalities was quite a challenge. The location of the resort is brilliant. It's as close to...

We found the location of this place perfect. It's a 10-15 minute walk along the beach to the shops and bars along the cliff tops of Varkala. The walk is nice and there's some interesting sights to photograph along the way. Beautiful beach directly in front. Great for sunbathing and the waves are good fun to swim in. We were...

Experienced one of the worst hospitality service till date. To begin with I requested the booking desk for one additional room for 1 night on 30th Dec two months in advance which they refused stating they would only provide us if we book for 2 days. The rooms are quite small and we being a family of 5 had to...

For me this was the first experience staying at a resort just for pleasure; earlier we had done this as part of travel and made quick exits as soon as the visit was done. Now the purpose...
