Hi, This place is just overrated and I chose it only because of the reviews, but that was one of the bad decisions I have ever made. Poor management and harsh staff makes this place as one of the avoidable place to stay. Please try to avoid. Regards, Traveller

Very nice location situated on the beautiful south cliff of Varkala. We stayed there after we made a round trip of 11 days starting in Chennai in the east. The beach was like a private beach, sometimes we could enjoy it alone. North cliff is about 10mins walk away. Very touristy, lots of restaurants, hotels etc. We were therfore very...

It's all been said by other reviewers. It is a bit pricey by Indian standards, but certainly worth it. The steps at the end of the garden lead to a beach beneath South cliff which is virtually private, and uncrowded. This is in contrast to the main Vakala beach and North cliff, which can be very busy. It's a perfect...

We spent 2 weeks at the Varkala Beach Resort. It is the best setting on the quieter south cliff. There are stunning views from the garden and after going to the beach it is nice to come and relax in one of the hammocks in the well kept gardens. We spent a little more and opted for one of the...

Wonderful, peaceful, laid back place located on the south cliff with direct access to a quiet beach, while still within easy access of the North cliff (10-15 minutes walk). Rooms cute and clean with veranda and hammock overlooking the well kept gardens and the sea (great sunset spot at the bottom of the garden on the edge of the cliff)....

A bit pricey by Indian standards but worth it. Great setting, spotlessly clean rooms, and a helpful staff.

Great location. Fantastic view of the cliff and sea. Rooms large, clean, comfortable. Situated on south cliff which is really quiet. The beach is like a private beach with no touts, sellers or hassle. We swam despite hearing that the sea is dangerous, lots of other people in the water but for safety didnt go out too far. North cliff...

I was looking for a safe and gentle introduction to the culture of India as a first-time solo traveler there. While the lights and activity of North Cliff may be attractive to others, I was more interested in gazing at the stars from a hammock. Shine, the owner of the Sea Shore Beach Resort, has created a haven on the...

We had a great stay with our 2 year old who loved all the attention she got from all the staff. Room was great - cool even though we didn't have AC, comfortable, cleaned everyday, great views and best of all own access to the beach. Need to watch the cliff though if you have young children. It was nice...

We stayed at Sea Shore for 2 x nights in January & it was absolutely amazing. The owners are delightful & extremely helpful. Our room was spotless & we loved having a hammock to relax in right outside our front door. The grounds are kept beautifully and lead to the edge of the south cliff with stunning views & private...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It's a very beautiful piece of paradise. It's a guest house (I couldn't call it something so cold as a resort) that delivers excellent service with a low key spirit of wanting to make your experience as enjoyable as possible. The rooms are clean, comfortable and the higher-end suites are exceptionally lovely and all for prices that make this the very best value I have almost ever experienced in all my travels.
