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

Pool and beach are lovely. We had to ask for towels. No AC turned on at breakfast. Rooms spacious. Bathroom stank of sewer gas on entry. No advanced... More

Rooms are clean but problems in plumbing and electricity. Nice location. Own private beach is clean and nice. Restaurant is average and has only very few options. Food is average or below average. Ambiance is good. Not quite good spa. Reservation response is bad.

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

One of the Best Private Beach in the country, great swimming pool and an excellent beach restaurant. The suite room/ cottage is the best as it faces the sea for that wow factor. My kids had a great fun. If the hotel management invest in some more professional hotel staff (current staff are polite and good, but they are far... More

My husband and I were looking for a weekend break in ECR before our baby arrived. Chariot and Ideal beach resorts were our first options. However, Aug 15th being a long weekend, none... 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
