Arrived in Murueshwar by bus,from Mangalore on Independence day.It was very busy,which added to the atmosphere. What a fabulous surprise to see the magnificent Shiva and all the other scuptures,also,the Murdeshwar temple on the other side.( I didn't realize they were so vast). We chose the RNS Residency for the views,more than anything else,there isn't alot of choice if you... More

I stayed here with my wife on January 30, 2015 for one night. Hotel is very near to Murudeshwara Temple and beach - the only plus point. My package includes breakfast but restaurant staff denied as they said time is past 10 'O clock !!! We went to a nearby restaurant - Kamath Hotel - and had a very nice... More

We have timing for each of the activity in the restaurant and in the hotel. We are sorry to say that we do not serve breakfast through out the day and cutoff time is... More

I along with my eight friends had been to RNS Residency. We stayed there on 1st Feb and 2nd Feb. Very good location and found very safe place for ladies. We all liked the complimentary breakfast. Overall worth staying.

We went to Murudeshwar with another family and spent 2 nights at RNS. we picked the room overlooking the sea (with a nice balcony) giving us great views of the sea and the beach. Rooms were clean and functional. Food was excellent and service was quite nice. This is one of the best hotels in Murudeshwar- infact the only good... More

Recently during the weekend stayed at this hotel and its not the worth the value for money, though this belongs to the Naveen group , but the maintainence is pathetic, hotel is gold, neglected on the maintainence. The package includes complementary breakfast but it is not worth it. Any road side hotel will provide better breakfast than this hotel. Overall... More

located right behind the Murudeshwar temple and next to the beach, the hotel provides easy access to both the attractions. The highlight however remains the view of the sea from the room which is breathtaking. A little over priced for the rooms but the service is top notch. I would recommend them to improve the quality of sheets in the... More

this hotel is walk able to both beach and temple,its location makes it a great place to stay and this is probably the best you can find in the near by areas. there are few home stays available near kamat which are pretty upscale. while the property is average ,this may be the best find in the nearby areas

Our driver took us there because 'm saying the place was good. We found it very expensive for a single mattress on a wooden board and soulless . No internet and no breakfast . The bathroom was very rustic . For the same price we found much more welcoming guesthouses . For Breakfast you need to walk down to restaurant... More

RNS has a monopoly in Murudeshwar and therefore the best way to enjoy your stay in Murudeshwar along with visiting the temple and beach is to book yourself at RNS Residency. Slightly expensive compared to their other resorts but for a reason. Walking disance to the beach and to the temple. Great view and good food in the hotel itself.... More

If I am correct, RNS was the first hotel to be built near the temple - no wonder why they have the best spot and views of the beach. There rates are very reasonable when looking at actual placement - closer to the temple, next to the water theme park, easy access to the beach and views. We got multiple... More
