Gateway Hotel

India, Indian Subcontinent

Kerala is a stunning holiday destination. The landscape is rich and varied – peppered with mountains and valleys, dotted with beautiful blue lagoons and copious rivers.

The Gateway Hotel is your entry point to all that Kerala has to offer. Situated in the peaceful village of Varkala – just a little way from the busier Thiruvananthapuram district – it is a charming and convenient spot for getting to know Kerala.

The Gateway Hotel – four star facilities plus access to the splendours of Kerala:

Location isn't quite everything. Inside the Gateway Hotel is a wonderfully welcoming place, beautifully presented and boasting lots of excellent amenities. The pristine white walls and contemporary styling make it look every inch the four star facility.

The beautiful outdoor pool is one of its highlights. With its sweeping contours and clear blue water, it's just about impossible to resist a dip. And you can sit back and enjoy it even more at the rather wonderful sunken bar.

From its elevated position, the Gateway Hotel affords stunning views out over the beach and the sea. The hotel does offer sea view rooms at a supplement – do ask for details if you're interested. Or you may prefer one of the equally gorgeous garden view rooms. They're all en suite and come with satellite TV, telephone, minibar, and drinks making facilities.

The full board package at the Gateway Hotel includes all meals, as well as one complimentary soft drink and fruit juice per day at the poolside. You may well be tempted to spend a lot of your time in and by the pool, but don't forget the hotel's excellent sports facilities for tennis, volleyball and badminton.

We'd also recommend spending some time in Varkala. It's a fascinating place, with its ancient temples and a rich history waiting to be uncovered. All that – plus a fantastic beach. Getting there by a bike is a good idea and you can borrow them (at no charge) from the hotel.

The Gateway restaurant and Ayurveda massage centre complete the picture – and provide the last essential ingredients for a holiday that will relax and invigorate.

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

Great location !!

Review by SupsS Mumbai, India

We stayed here just for a day on our way back from Wayanad. The hotel is very charming and centrally located to the markets ,beach and sightseeing locations.The area around the hotel is safe and we were walking late in the night for some cafes and shops nearby. We were upgraded to a suite and the room though slightly dated was charming and spacious.The bed was super comfortable and I think we had the best sleep in a longtime...

Lovely stay and I highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Kozhikode -you can’t go wrong with the the taj hospitality.
