An Unforgettable Getaway at a Gateway Hotel
We chose to spend our wedding anniversary at the Gateway Hotel Varkala in Sep 2021. Though not a luxury hotel by Taj standards, the experience at the Gateway Hotel was a wonderful one mostly due to the excellent service and attitude of the staff. Located in a secluded end of the Cliff area, the hotel offers views of the sea from the garden side. With the Covid restrictions clearly evident, it was nice to see the limited staff at the hotel trying to meet the customer needs tirelessly. On the day we had our special dinner served in our room, there was a wedding reception too at the garden. Yet the kitchen and restaurant staff worked tirelessly to ensure we had a well prepared dinner served with a smile. Similarly the reception staff were courteous and willing to extend any help to make the stay an unforgettable one. One could feel there was a concerted team effort from top to bottom in all aspects. Being frequent travelers we were heartened to see the brighter side of hospitality after feeling sad on walking around the Varkala cliff area which looked like a ghost town with downed shutters and only Kerala based tourists and pilgrims to be seen. Covid has taken away the beach tourism tag away from Varkala for the time being. Let us look forward to better days soonest.

It was a magnificent and wonderful stay. Will cherish this experience.
We enjoyed staying at Gateway Varkala. Everything was a call away and Mr Yash, Sudeep and Miss Aswathy from reception were very polite & helpful in answering my queries and explaining me everything. The entire staff of Kitchen and catering are very welcoming and always made sure to keep us comfortable. Mr Vipin, Vishnu and the Chef Nixon at the Coastal Kitchen were very friendly and took good care of us. There was one more person, i think the head of coastal Kitchen, When my 2year old daughter was throwing tantrums and not eating her food, he promised my 2 year old that, if she finish her food then he would give her a strawberry ice cream and the Gentleman kept his promise. My Daughter after this was saying, if i finish my food every time, will i get an ice cream always? Kudos to the house keeping team also. They made sure that whenever we go out, they would clean and refill the room, even without asking. Always feel good, walking to a clean room. Overall we enjoyed our stay. In future also we are looking forward to come there and enjoy our vacation. Thank you Gateway Varkala!
