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.

Nice secluded place off ecr to enjoy with family. Service is too good. Food average. Outdoor activities can be enjoyed with children.Certain activity events were non operational better to confirm before booking. Mahabalipuram is closeby worth a visit for half a day.
