Had been on a vacation trip to Murudeswar/Uduipi & stayed at RNS residency. Thankfully got the room immediately. Came to know that normally getting an accommodation here is a tough task it seems. Rooms are neat & tidy for the price. It is a wonderful holiday location where you can go for a boating (In sea, swimming) & if you... More

If you are planning for Murudeshwara temple visit, this is the place to stay. The view from the beach facing rooms are good. The staff at the reception is helpful. They serve only veg buffet in the restaurant. We didn’t feel the food is value for money and tasty. May be pure vegetarians enjoy that food. The room service is... More

The women in the reception was at auto-pilot did not feel welcoming at all. I do not always expect service but in this case as this is supposed to be a "fancy" one I expect some service. However the room was quite old and I had no good feeling staying here. Overpriced for sure. No wifi. The location is good... More

Booked two rooms and were allotted adjoining rooms , No. 213 and 214. The location of the hotel is fantastic and very rare. Hotel stands on the rock... More

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
