Great little hotel with rooms situated around a sparkling swimming pool. Clean, comfortable rooms with very comfortable beds. We were offered a choice of room, ground floor or first floor. Complimentary towels to use on sun beds. Deshadan is situated a short walk to cliffs and clean beach with stunning views. An excellent range of good quality value for money restaurants close by The staff were on hand to help in any way possible, with excellent knowledge of local sites to visit and arranging transport. We had a great stay at Deshaden and will be returning next year.
Nice and comfortable hotel”
We stayed 02 nights at Deshadan. We are very happy and satisfied about the hotel. The room is clean, the bed is comfortable, the pool and garden are very nice. It is also located near by the cliff about 10 minutes-walking. The most impression to us is that the staff at hotel is very nice and helpful. The breakfast was including the hotel cost but they was willing to cook for us the different-menu-breakfast that we asked for (cause we could not eat more curry or sandwich with butter). Atlthough we stayed there in the off-season and there were not many things to do, we feel happy with the kindness of the hotel's staff.
Absolutely fantastic! ”
We were really surprised at the high level of the accommodation and service we received at Dashadan! We had one of the AC rooms which ticked every box for us and for the price paid was an absolute steal! The hotel is relatively small and not a big resort, which we had been concerned about - it actually had a real homely feel and has only a small number of rooms. The pool was great and breakfast good with both western and indian options. We didn't eat dinner in the restaurant but ordered some Kingfisher 'pop' from the bar, which was delivered poolside. It's a 5 minute walk from the cliffs, but that could be a good thing for some.We got tuk tuks home from the cliff bars in the evening as the path home wasn't lit but that cost less than 100 rupees. The staff were top notch and advised us on how to get to Munnar and arranged tuk tuks when required. I would definitely stay at Dashadan again and recommend to friends!
A lovely relaxing stay”
Stayed here for four nights, most enjoyable. Staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. Lovely breakfasts, room service was efficient and nicely prepared meals. Bed was super comfortable. only negative for me was dim lighting in the room. Would definately recommend for cilled out sty in the lovely little town of Varkala. Ideally located, only few minutes walk to beaches and cliff top.
lovely room next to pool”
After travelling through Kerala my daugher and I decided to finish our holiday at a resort. We were impressed with all the facilities at Deshadan particularly the pool as the sea was too rough to swim in. We enjoyed our massage. The beach was only a short walk away. We liked the dining area and the food was good. All the staff were friendly and helpful.
A relaxing stay”
Stayed at Deshadan for a day during a weekend getaway with our two little ones. We're immensely satisfied with the facilities. Luxurious, relaxing and fit for those who'd prefer a certain extent of privacy. The room (top floor, pool-facing) was spotless and clean. The swimming pool is great. The restaurant served some yummy dishes. The proximity to the beach is another highlight. It's only around 300m while taking a short route via the Tibetan market. All in all, a relaxing stay. Our only regret was we hadn't planned to stay longer.
Great pool, very relaxing”
Our room was lovely, nice and cool. Very clean and comfortable bed. Plenty of room for luggage, and also had 2chairs and coffee table which was nice. Good hot water and wifi. Pool was lovely. Breakfast was ok. Short walk to the main cliff top area where the shops and restaurants are. We really enjoyed our 2 nights here.
Close to the beach and secluded enough ”
Had a lovely time there. The staff were friendly. Proximity to the beach was the main attraction and the reason we booked this resort in the first place. Overall a good stay and would recommend to others.
Lovely Time at Varkala”
The staff were ready to help. We had to sort out a minor change in one of the bookings and the staff did the needful over the phone. The 1st impression was really good. The crowd at the hotel was interesting and contributed a great deal to us having a real good time.
most comfortable bed in kerala!”
Very quiet location but only a few minutes walk away from the main strip of restaurants and shops and the beach. The best and most comfortable nights sleep since we arrived in India.. most beds are very hard but this was like sleeping on a cloud! The pool was clean and well maintained with a few beds around and fresh towels put out every day. Not many guests when we were there and so we could choose what we liked for breakfast... cut fruits and banana porridge were lovely. Coffee could be a little stronger though. We only booked for 1 night but decided to stay for 3 as it was so comfortable and convenient. Waiters and staff very helpful and pleasant. The only down side was the bathroom had a slight drain smell but nothing too bad. Complimentary toothbrush and soap. Would definitely stay again.
Shoddy service; forgetful”
Stayed for three nights and room did not get cleaned once. Hung the clean sign first morning, and it had disappeared when I returned, with room uncleaned. Reminded them to clean twice, but it never got done. On last night slept terribly because air conditioner attached to other unit was humming too loudly all night long. Pool is nice. Location is a walk in the dark away from beach. Staff are polite but not that useful. Service disappointing for this price.
fantastic, very friendly staff”
our stay was fantastic from the start, our room was clean, comfortable and had lots of little extras. The staff were outstanding, going out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible, all our sightseeing and houseboat was arranged by the staff. cannot say enough how lovely they all are.
Unfortunately our flights were changed and thus we couldn't stay the second night. The one night we did stay though was excellent. We were able to check in very quickly, the room was immaculate and after a month around India we finally found a bed that wasn't like rock! I felt like I slept on a cloud!! The only negatives were the WIFI was hopeless -they give you 2 options to log onto for free but both dropped out regularly and weren't available in the room - which is not essential to some but as we were trying to confirm flights it was annoying. The other would be the food. We were starving when we arrived so ordered food from the restaurant and literally out of 4 dishes we ate about 6 mouthfuls...horrible....and they charged for everything. We didn't realize how close it is to a HUGE amount of restaurants....we found out shortly after. Neither would prevent me from coming back, I would definitely stay here again - its close enough to everything but being a little stroll away gave us the peace and quiet we were craving.
Value for money”
The hotel was a good location. Staff were friendly and helpful and the garden well maintained. Breakfast was basic, one choice of juice and same everyday also one jam, same everyday. A bit of variety would be good as if you don't like the one on offer there's nothing else. I would like to see the management get rid of the curtains as they are old and look as though they haven't been washed for years, hated touching them. Apart from that the rooms were clean although you were lucky to get hot water for long.
Fabulous small hotel”
We had a great time at the Dashadan. The staff were so helpful and even organised trips to the markets and temples for us. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Rooms were big, all with views of the pool.
Good stay with family - but need to rectify below mentioned issues. ”
Food and rooms were good. Pool was okay. No proper card payment facility in the hotel, that was the only major drawback. Seems like they need liquid cash, so not supporting card payments and for name sake just kept a device which is not working. Coffee powder or tea bags not provided in the room, very bad considering the class of the hotel. Rest everything was okay. Even if these are minor issues, need to rectify it
We enjoyed it, the room was large and comfy but need a bit more housekeeping. 10 minutes walk to beach but streets and rows are dark at knight. Overall would recommand.
Good hotel, comfortable. ”
Great hotel, clean sheets, great shower, hot water. The only problem would be the pool is the main focus of the hotel gardens. Can be noisy if there are to many children. Great if you have children, but single or couple travellers might find it a bit noisy at times.
Peaceful,great pool,lovely staff”
Breakfast definitely needs improving but this place gains vast points on everything else..great value for money..lovely chilled out atmosphere with nice pool area..lovely staff.
Lovely clean pool, very kind staff & good room.
