The resort is situated in Varkala, a calm and quite hamlet which is most famed for its sun kissed beach, mineral water springs with medicinal properties, placid lagoons, silvery sands, a 2000 year old Janardhana swamy temple and the spiritually significant Sivagiri mutt founded by the great sage and social reformer Sree Narayana Guru. The resort is from walkable distance from the beach papanasam, which in literal sense means cleansing you from your sins.
Though visited by a fairly large number of tourists every day, Varkala still harbours a calm ambience and is devoid of the hustle and bustle that is usually associated with large beaches. One of the key factors that set apart Varkala from other beaches of Sothern Kerala is the fascinating stretch of cliffs. Kerala coasts are generally flat in nature. Varkala alone is the only beach in southern Kerala where cliffs are found adjacent to the Arabian Sea. “The Varkala Formation” as it is called by the geologists is declared by the Geological survey of India as a geological monument.
