I stayed in this lovely resort for one night only but i really loved the experience. It is conveniently located near the famous ancient monuments called Five Rathas and is surrounded by greenery. The room was kept clean and was decent size but the bathroom was a bit on the small size. The grounds and the gardens in the front... More

I stayed at Chariot on 11th and 12th Dec. Its their peak season and their charges multiply during these days. The resort is really big , clean and serene. Best part is it is adjacent to beach. The nice thing about beach here is absolutely no crowd and relatively clean. Apart from food and beach there are not much facilities.... More

i can not understand the negative comments on this hotel. They give more than service they care. It is a new management team and they are trying hard to make up for the negative faults of their predecessors. The new team are in the process of redevelopment and it will be even better when they have finished but in the... More

A large lobby open in the front to the driveway and to an enormous outdoor swimming pool in the back. We were not greeted by anyone although there were three middleaged men at the reception counter, all talking heatedly on their phones. So we sat down for 10 minutes, finally a bell boy brought us a cold drink. Then he... More

We wanted to en-quire about conducting an event in December .. the responses given by the staff was not satisfying and their don't care attitude will upset you ... Bragging about oneself by having hoarding on the ecr will not build a brand name . Disappointed ! Property looks good and maintained well . But high time you train your... More

By default they upgraded the standard room to deluxe room. And on request, it was free upgraded to Sea view room If ur lucky, u get the best deal. The room they showed first was a bit untidy and on request they immediately changed to another room. The staffs were very polite and humble. Room and bathroom was very neat.... More
