I was really pleased with my evening meal at the resort on Feb 14. I had become ill from eating in an outside restaurant on the cliff a few nights before and choose the Deshadan restaurant as a safe place to start dining again. I had an awesome North Indian meal which the waiter Rahul recommending after listening my stomach...

We spent three days over New Year at Deshadan. This place was booked as part of a package tour. So, when we arrived, we were a bit disappointed that the beach is still 5 to 10 minutes by foot. Turns out that Deshadan is right behind the center of the Tibetan Market where most restaurants and the beach promenade are...

Deshadan is a comfortable, clean resort in Varkala. It’s only a five minute walk to the cliff top, three minutes to the Tibetan market. A pool is a must in Varkala as the sea isn’t suitable for swimming. poolside room was very spacious and kept spotlessly clean by the helpful staff, despite our constant traipsing in and out from the...

Deshadan is a comfortable, clean and friendly base in Varkala. We selected the hotel because of the pool and proximity to the north cliff area. It’s only a five minute walk to the cliff top, three minutes to the Tibetan market (which has a much better selection and quality of produce than the shops that directly line the cliff). A...
