Contrary to most other reviews here, our experience was far from pleasant. The hotel lobby looks fabulous, room looked luxurious, we checked in late in the night (around 11 pm) after a long journey, and were in for a rude shock that kept us wide awake through the night. There was no hot water in the bathroom, AC could not... More

We have checked-in on Friday, October 31, 2014 to spend away from the city life. Though it is opposite to Mahabalipuram bus stand, you feel isolated from the world. The ambiance was good, Rooms and bathrooms are well maintained. If you require privacy then take the first floor. And you can get nice pool view also. We have enjoyed more... More

I've read a lot of the reviews here, and we booked a couple of nights not sure what to expect.. However... This hotel is superb! It's the best stay we've had after 2 months across India. The room is spacious and clean, the bed is comfortable and the shower is hot. The swimming pool is huge, big enough for laps,... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. Enjoyed our large balcony/veranda (we had a room on the ground floor) and the clean and beautiful pool very much. Rooms are spacious and clean. Food was all right, though there isn't a wide range of options available and not a lot of South Indian dishes. Room service was very good though and the... More

Rooms are big but old. Mosquitoes kept coming in through the gap of the door. Sheets were not clean, had to ask to be changed. Breakfast was bad. Yes it is in the center of the village... but it is so tiny that it is not a great advantage. We wanted to pay by creditcard and the connection kept having... More

This hotel is right opposite to the Mahabalipuram bus stand, making to easy to locate. The entrance to this hotel is through a small lodge. On crossing the lodge, one reaches to the hotel. It is nicely built with a lot of trees and a pool in the middle with a poolside restaurant. It is the best option for medium-budget... More

Neat room, value for money. Food was not all that great but decent enough and the service is average to good depending on the season and the crowd. Swimming pool is the highlight! Very close to the beach and market area.
