As we first came in, we were not greeted by anyone, there was absolutely no one in there. Then one of the workers came spoke to us and helped us get our luggage to our room. However, this was after about 1/2 hr later, as we were waiting for the receptionist/manager to arrive to check us in. He never returned after all. Although the pictures of the resort looks really nice, it's not really good at all, the rooms were not clean and had a mouldy smell. We asked for the AC to be switched on, but the staff couldn't figure out how to do it, therefore we stayed the whole night without air-con. Also we only got the wifi password the next morning, and wifi did not work in the room!!! The next morning we went for breakfast, it took them 1 hr!!!! to send breakfast, toast and eggs, there was no bacon though they said there was. The fruits we got seemed bad, they may have cut them the previous day, this was like that for both nights we stayed. Over all the food was sub standard! having been to India four times, this place served the worse food! The reception guy was didn't care about anything, all he wanted was the money, and no one was sent to even take our heavy luggage down.

Room Tip: The resorts near by are better so avoid this place.

The room was NOT in GOOD CONDITION.
The bedsheets were smelly. We asked the hotel person to change it.
There were mosquitoes in the room. The fan was working but it was not sufficient to cool the room.
The food served was better.
Bathroom facility was OK.
I recommend to visit some other hotel if you are visiting Varkala.

From Beginning of Nov 2016 to the end of Jan 2017 I had a bungalow room in Kshetra. I liked the management staff because they served me very well. Daily I liked to swim in the 30 deg Celsius warm ocean. The Ayurvedic treatment in Dr. Abin's clinic nearby extraordinarily helped me. Friedrich Naehring, 71 years old.

Room Tip: bungalow and main building rooms available, beautiful lobby with large tropical garden

I had been to this resort in the month of March. Varkala is an awesome place just perfect for relaxation. The stay at kshetra made it more pleasant. The room was pretty good and neat with a spacious bathroom attached. The resort is very close to the cliff. The staffs Ajin and Abhilash were very helpful, specially Ajin is a strongly responsible person. They guided us thoroughly. I would always love to visit again.
