This hotel is really great. The beach is beautiful at sunset and it is so well located being away from the craziness of Chennai but close to the fantastic temples of Mahabilpuram. The staff in the restaurant were amongst the most capable and friendly people we met on our trip.

We recently moved to Chennai and through friends found this place. Awesome beachfront location. Clean beach with umbrellas and chairs. Also an excellent swimming pool with great food and drink service. The Resort has a cottage feel and we really felt relaxed with our 5 year old son running around the property. Since it's less than 30 minutes from our... More

Rooms are large, clean and with a great view. The reservation and reception teams have been extremely friendly and accomodation. F&B offers good variety of food and the service is very good. General atmosphere is very much a resort surrounding - and not like a commercial undertaking.

Room: I had booked a standard room (garden facing) but my wife and I were pleased that we could see the sea from outside the room. The room was quite neat and clean and met our expectations. The bathroom was large and clean but the only con during the stay was some external work being done right outside the bathroom... More

This was our first stop on our South India tour and a couple of hours drive from Chennai airport. Lovely spacious room with old style wooden furniture. Wonderful evening walk along the beach to watch the fishing boats come in. Far enough away from the crowds but close enough to visit the Shore temple etc the following morning. Thanks in... More
