Loved the hotel and the staff was very warm.
The quality of linen could be better. Bed sheets were not crisp, towels were not soft enough and polishing of wooden stuff in the room could be better. Staff is pretty warm and nice.

Hospitality is always excellent for Taj !!! Varkala was as good as any other taj hotel i have been too :-)
The Buffet's were not interesting because being in coastal place and no seafood in buffet or live different fish makes it disappointing a bit. The Hotel staff was excellent as always , out of the league i must say in all aspects , any praise would be less for the team so kudos there ! And also sorry to say this - but in resort stay i was expecting more in breakfast - it was very simple !!! At least more exclusive fruit options - like berries family or grapes family and there are so many options but it's standard pineapple , Papaya , Watermelon !

Our friendly home by the beach
A very relaxing stay. Good service from the team throughout. I was pleased with the new team in the spa - I hope they are successful. Shiba provided excellent service in the restaurant, and trainee Jyotindra is very competent and personable. The quality of food in Coastal Kitchen has improved over the last couple of years and is now first class. We really enjoyed the culinary experience with the Chef. I am impressed by the way the management team strives to simplify and improve services - this is evident, for example, in the refurbishment of the restaurant. But having stayed at the hotel many times over the years, I was struck by the cohesion and good spirits of the whole team. Well done. We will be back !

We enjoyed Evert moment in this friendly, calm and beautiful hotel.
The pool do need a renovation and from time to time there was a lack of sunbeds.
