Wonderful service and a lovely playce to stay !
"My stay at Karthika Plaza in Varkala was beautiful. The service was so nice and the hotel was near located to the beach, you just have to walk 5 minutes down. The food, especially the breakfast, was also very delicious and I enjoyed my stay a lot. I just can advise this beautiful hotel to all the visitors of Varkala."

"We have really enjoyed our stay at Karthika Plaza Tourist Resort. The rooms are very clean and to a high standard. The staff were incredibly helpful by giving us lifts to the beach and letting us use their mobile phone to call home at Christmas. The food is delicious - I would recommend the traditional Kerala breakfast!
The resort is about 15 mins walk to the beach and we really enjoyed the walk. You are also close to Varkala town. All in all a great stay!"

Relaxing and welcoming
"We arrived at the hotel just at the end of monsoon season and we were greeted in a very hospitable way. Bedrooms were very clean and comfortable and the service could not be faulted. It didn't matter what we asked for, they immediately provided it. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Varkala and would most certainly return there."

The Karthika Plaza is very welcoming and friendly
"The staff make one really welcome and the pick up from the airport was included in the five night price. There is a huge choice of meals and we were spoilt for choice with breakfast. They went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and were more than happy to drive us around. They even took us out to show us some of the sites tourists usually miss.
The hotel is only one year old and very clean, the beds are firm but comfortable and the bathrooms are clean with hot water when requested. The hotel is 1km from the beach, but we really enjoyed the walk and I am sure we could have asked for a lift if we wanted.
A great place to stay and the balcony overlooking the garden was delightful."

newly started hotel ,they are very particular about clean rooms and surroundings.big compound to move around.management is very friendly and helpful.I visited their health care centre little away from here and enjoyed wellness programe.
They took me one trip to nearby places,nothing much but next beach kappil is very attractive., not developed.

"We stayed here for 8 wks Jan -March 2017 and it's such a treat to find such hospitality,we have travelled extensively over the years,and never ever been treated with such respect ..which is rather rare these days..Quiet Resort with lovely gardens,and nice breakfasts all organic or you can have the traditional Kerala breakfast...we choose the suites owing to our long stay,it was bigger and had a fridge,own private balcony...which was lovely to sit in the shade..Rajesh and Sujjit go out of their way to ensure you are being treated well,they take you to the beach,town,shops,wherever you want at no cost,owing to this resort being in a quiet residential area,VARKALA Beach and the cliff for resturants are the main places,fabulous place to chill out and be treated as one would expect with respect!!"
