We enjoyed sitting on our personal balcony to read and enjoy the sun setting over the Arabian Sea. The staff was excellent and went out of their way to accommodate...

I was travelling to Varkala on my own, and wanted to book somewhere in advance so that I wouldn't be stranded at the busiest time of year. I came across Sanctum Spring on Booking.com and thought it looked good (although I hadn't had any personal recommendations) - and I feel SO lucky that I found it. Overall picture: incredibly friendly...
