This resort is around 15 kms from Mahabalipuram near Kalpakkam. You will find it difficult to find the road from ECR to this resort unless you keep an eye on the road signs. It is away from the congestion of ECR. The location is very calm and in a village like atmosphere. Ample car parking available. The restaurant is open... More

Village Retreat was recommended by one of my good friends and we checked in on a fine saturday afternoon (we had managed to get some good discount via 'goibibo', and using coupon... More

Meatatarians please reconsider, coz the restaurant is pure vegetarian. Since there is No bar, be ready to be a teetotaler during your stay. No private beach, one must drive to reach the beach. If you have... More

Went to this resort last weekend with my family, stayed for around 2 days. This one is about 1.5 kms off the ECR road around 15 kms away from Mahabalipuram main area. To begin with, the bylane one got to take to reach the resort is pretty rickety and can be spooky for night travelers. The hotel staff is rude,... More

Great place with enough activities for both children and adults alike, the food was very good and so was the service, very friendly staff. One of the few resorts that lets one check-in in the morning and check-out on the same day in the evening.
