Beautiful resort Beautiful resort

We had such a lovely stay in Varkala thanks to Thiruvambadi. We were in a cottage room by the pool which was clean and spacious, and had a pretty porch we sat out on. The pool is amazing! It's worth having access to one in Varkala as the sea is very choppy, but this was by far the nicest pool I've seen- you can watch the sunset over the cliffs, it's beautiful. We didn't see much of the rest of the resort but my impression was that it was all well looked after. There reception area looked cosy with lots of books to borrow! Ate in the restaurant only once because it was pricey, but the food was worth it! Location is super - by the black beach, a 10 min walk to helipad, so right on the cliff and not too far north (like some of the resorts we saw) but also quiet at night. Would be perfect for families. Finally, the staff were super friendly and fun, couldn't fault them at all. Thanks for a wonderful stay. ps. a lot of reviewers complain about the lack of hot showers - for a start, you're in India, you don't REALLY need a hot shower, it's boiling during even the coldest months in Varkala... and I've stayed at very few places that do have hot showers. BUT Thiruvambadi Resort does have hot showers. The water went off a couple of times but was put on again very quickly. Once again, you are in India... Get used to a few inconveniences! :p

I loved this place, standard room with balcony, close by the beach, huge pool, smart breaky at the terrass, hearing the waves from the sea. I extended four times. I can recommend this place from my heart. Good manager, who takes care of the guests. Hope to seeing you again!

Peacefull resort! Peacefull resort!

It's a really nice luxury hotel. It's only two minute from the beach and the garden is a really relaxing place. We passed really great time in the swimming pool and in the Cafe Geko, the cafe of the hotel. The staff is young and really nice! Really nice place for enjoy Varkala.

Thiruvambadi Beach Resort aka "Executive PentHouses" on AirBNB. Pro: Spacious room and decent pool. Con: The list of facilities on Airbnb says: Kitchen, breakfast, tv.. But this is wrong. As we are a family travelling with toddlers, we choose the rooms carefully before booking and are dependent on being able to prepare meals for the kids we select our hotels based on these things so we were very disappointed with the lack of the kitchen. Showcase pictures are probably from when the place was build. - I have no idea how many years ago this was, but most of the furniture and lamps for the pictures are stripped and the Executive Penthouse is far from executive The facility list says 5 beds. This is not true either. There is 1 double bed in the room. When asking we were provided mattresses for the kids. Frequent powercuts and most of the time no warm water.. At least once a day cold water was also missing. Unfortunately I didnt read the ratings on Tripadvisor before I booked as I thought this was a private rental through AirBNB and not just a room in an old resort.. Sorry guys. Cannot recommend Executive Penthouses, aka Thiruvambadi Beach Resort) And by the way: Breakfast included Dont count on it.. On the first day around 09.30 some guys were cleaning the restaurant after a party, on the second day we saw no one in the restaurant and gave up. There are plenty of better places in Varkala.

Demo Trip Cottage room handy for pool access!

by Kat C on March 1, 2017

Demo Trip There are two buildings. Standard room will also be fine. But better with A/C. All rooms are at seaside and sunny.

by Rose33333 on February 4, 2017

Demo Trip Some rooms have balcony if you insist on staying here. The top floor Executive Penthouse has no balcony.

by Jacob C on January 26, 2017

Demo Trip There are rooms which has access to sea view, Opening to the pool, Private stand alone ones. I prefer the big room on top, a Royal one.
