Fodor's Expert Review Gateway Hotel Varkala
Near Government Guest House, Janardhanapuram, 695141, India
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Perched above a cliff overlooking the Arabian Sea, this classy Taj property offers comforts of a trusted brand, service of a destination property and the charm of an untapped tourist spot. Hotel staff is attentive and warm. Rooms are bright and spacious with either garden or sea facing views and very comfortable. It is a small descent to Varkala beach.The hotel offers plenty of activities for children. The multi cuisine GAD restaurant has great service and food (desserts too) and for those who want to explore beyond the hotel, there's plenty of beach cafes just a walk away.
