We were welcomed after a long dusty day with jasmine garlands and a cold drink of melon juice. Between 4pm and 5pm they serve complimentary tea and coffee with cookies. Our room was big with 2 double beds, a separate dressing room and large bathroom with a bath and separate shower. There was a hospitality tray, mini bar and small... More

Food was delicious. Most dishes were moderately spiced probably best for foreigners. Private beach was great. Staff members were nice and polite in a non-intrusive way. They also had some women security guards at the beach which made us feel comfortable. The interior decor was nice. It looked recently renovated. The entire place incl. bathrooms was very clean.

this felt like a transit camp, huge groups coming and going; it all worked well within those parameters but for a travelling couple totally lacked style or ambience. Everything worked well and no criticism of the staff but there was necessarily no individuality Good stop for the marvellous temples, one would have sleet on the streets for those. Rooms adequate,...

Ideal is the sort of resort that gives you all the possibilities to experience a low key beach culture in a tranquil setting. The grounds are lush and decorated and are pleasure to walk through. The privet beach is simple and accommodating. The rooms are basic and comfortable, and the bathrooms are big. The best feature is the little balcony... More

We stayed here for just one night on our travels but it would of been lovely to stay a little longer, it was so peaceful, a complete contrast to Chennai city. The lady on reception was very sweet and welcoming, we stayed in the Pallava Suite a wooden cottage less than a minutes walk to the beach. Ideally positioned not... More

Our first 3 nights we stayed in a standard room and the final 2 nights we stayed in a deluxe room. While the deluxe room offered a beautiful view of the ocean (on the... More

We stayed here for one night after our trip to the Andamans and before our teenagers caught their flight back to Europe. It's 90 minutes from Chennai Airport during the day and only 45 minutes if you arrive late at night or early in the morning. So it's a good alternative to staying in Chennai as there isn't too much... More
