I've been here quite a few times. They have never disappointed us. The facilities are good. The beach is always a good way to escape the heat of the city. The food is mediocre. The only downside is that the waters in the sea over there are very rough and makes swimming dangerous sometimes.

My Indian friends, if you ever want to choose a resort in Mahabalipuram, please don't select this one. Me and my family went to this resort, and we asked the reception for the room keys. They said to wait for some time. We waited and waited. Some foreign people who came behind us, paid the bill, got the keys, and... More

Superb location on a wonderful, quiet beach, albeit some distance from local services. The rooms rather show their age but this is compensated for by excellent food (best fish curry of the trip) and service. Would certainly visit again for a few days relaxation.

The location by the sea and the beautifully designed cottages and gardens were well maintained. The menu for the buffet and a la carte were excellent. A wide variety of Chettinad, Ceylonese and Kerala cuisine made our group look forward to the next meal with eager anticipation. The hotel staff went out of their way to please us and the... More

After the usual check in we were shown to our room (303) which had a lovely outside “porch” with two loungers and a table to sit out and relax over views of the garden... More
