The Gateway Hotel

   Mid-Range Collection

Kerala  |  Varkala

Boasting a superb hilltop position overlooking Varkala Beach, The Gateway Hotel offers a prime location to enjoy both a relaxing and more active escape in Kerala.

Surrounded by luxurious green coconut palms and vegetation, The Gateway Hotel has a grand, colonial façade, further enhanced by its spacious and beautifully furnished guest rooms offering both garden and sea views. A large swimming pool with swim-up bar offers plenty of space to relax, with both sunloungers and lawns ready for you to lay your beach towel.

The on-site restaurant, ‘Coastal Kitchen’, is where you can enjoy sampling traditional Keralan cuisine among other international food, and for those in search of the ultimate relaxation, head to the ayurvedic spa for a traditional Indian treatment or two. Other activities such as tennis, badminton and bicycles for rent are all on offer for the more active.

Just outside the hotel grounds, rustic red cliffs give way to Varkala’s rugged sandy beach, where you can enjoy tasty food from one of the local beach shacks or take a dip in the Arabian Sea.
