If you are a female and travel to Varkala in Kerala, then receiving a massage from Lakshmi is really truly essential. So many people are massage therapists these days but not like Lakshmi - who is truly gifted and special. She is an energy healer with truly loving, healing hands. She certainly knows what she is doing, and you will...

We had a stay at their honeymoon villa. The view from the room is beautiful. Their restaurant also serves good food. But the rooms inside were too bad. The blanket had cigarette burnt holes, the room did not gave a freshness feeling.

We visited Varkala in August 2016. Weather was good. It drizzled/rained on all mornings till 8/8:30. Thereafter, it was suitable to go out. The resort is very comfortable one and strategically located. It was a pleasant stay and the restaurant was very, very, very good and accommodating. View from the restaurant is a million dollar one. On the flip side,...

This review is for the Standard Rooms. This resort looks really nice from the outside. The locaion is awesome and they have a nice restaurant too. But the rooms suck. The beds look like cheap hostel beds. Not at all comfortable. They do not have even have a wardrobe. The room was dirty and was not cleaned before we checked...
