We are one of the prime properties as far as Varkala is concerned owing to our location. We are rightly on Papanasam beach, ideally in between the north & South Cliffs. We do have road accessibility inside to our resort. We offers 6 sea face extra spacious (suites) high end rooms, with private kitchen, attached toilets, balconies overlooking sea, running hot water as the specialties. Three rooms are on top floor, made in traditional Kerala style wooden cottage types.

From the moment we arrived Jai and staff at Marine Palace made us feel welcome and relaxed, and after 5 days we did not want to leave. Our room was spacious with a garden and ocean view, with comfy beds and everything was nice and clean. We felt safe and secure with gate

The room was good and the cleaners came daily. Sheets and towels every other day. Jai is there and will help you arrange anything from taxis, to rickshaws to sun cream. Bhasker is friendly and was there to make us comfortable at 0400 when we arrived.

The resort was well situated near the beach and had a good restaurant. The staff was very helpfull and also replied quickly on special requests. In the evening and during the night it was quiet. It was a great place to hang out for at least a couple of days, although a lot of

Varkala Helipad which is the entrance to the main cliff is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. North cliff area is further 10-15 minutes walk along the main cliff and at the end you will get Odayam Beach. Thank you

Hi, I stayed in a room with seaview on the first floor. It's really big, with a single bed and double bed. It has a bathroom (just cold water, but perhaps there's an option for warm too in another seasons-I was in the hottest one), shared porch with a table and chairs and a terrace (shared with guests from the other room) where you can relax admiring the view of the garden and the ocean. I believe it's got everything you need to feel comfortable. They provide towels and soap. Hope that helps. If you have any other questions, let me know. Enjoy your stay in Varkala! :)

Hi there. The fans were very good- but we did change our room from a garden to a sea view room upon arrival because there is a good sea breeze which helped. Our room was on the upper floor - i cannot recall which number. My husband was ill when we were there - unrelated to hotel!- he had a bit of a fever and was fine with the only the fans. There were about 4 fans in our room. Hope this helps!

"They are all good rooms"
"Get the sea view rooms if possible. They are the furthest away from the adjacent large open-air restaurant which has music and dancing."
"This is not 5 star international standard but Keralan traditional at its best."
"All the rooms have a lot of space. Only the suites have A/C but you don't need because they are fresh inside."
"Study website before choosing your room"
US$34 - US$59 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
