The notes I put in my iPhone when we were there read as follows:- The good - the food, the beds, the pool. The bad - water, cleanliness, room service, incompetent. The ugly - R6,000 for one night. 'The good' is pretty self explanatory, the food was very nice indeed, we had dinner and breakfast there and dined well. The... More

Chariot Beach Resort is just besides the "Five Rathas" in Mahabalipuram. Excellent location, Very well maintained and a perfect place to spend your time with your loved ones. Room #210 (Beach Facing) - is what one should really take, as the others do not have a clear view to the beach. In fact the beach was around a kilometer away... More

We stayed in the month of June and we had a great time spending there. Food was Delicious. Nice swimming pool to relax. We stayed in cottage and the room was spacious enough to stay. Staff were so kind to us and god bless all the staff. Me and my wife had a lovely weekend

Location: If you are looking for a peaceful place, this is a lovely place to stay. Little far from city centre but not a great deal if you have your own vehicle, have a private beach again well maintained, morning or night walks would be really great without any disturbance. Service: We didnt have hot water in our room/villa, we... More
