This is a belated review, as I stayed here in January. I am not really one for beach resorts but this is a well-run and comfortable place to stay. The staff are friendly and helpful - the guest liaison officer Soundarya was particularly anxious to ensure that everything was OK. The food and the service in the restaurant was great;... More

The hotel staff are highly courteous and prompt in service... More

Summary: Very good resort, easily reachable from Chennai. I'm writing this review as a local (Chennaite). I had stayed in Sea View Villa right next to the beach just for a day as being a local and being familiar about beaches not much to do for > 1 day unless we want to visit outside places. Positives: Nice location, private... More

Our stay at this resort was extremely comfortable. Rooms were good with a nice view from the balcony. We used their Ayurvedic massage services which were good too. The staff here were very courteous and helpful. The private beach belonging to the resort is very well kept. The hammocks and shelters along the beach helped us to relax after the... More

We are a family of three with a 3 yr old daughter. We stayed here for 3 nights ( We planned for only 2 but extended the stay since we loved this place). We loved everything about this place.

We had an ocean view room which was clean and spacious, even with a separate dressing room. The large bathroom contained a shower, a separate bath tub, a bidet, two nice glass washbasins and a toilet (of course). We had some problems to adjust the A/C in the room with the remote but when succeeded it was working well and... More

We had the deluxe and sea view villa rooms. There is a 4000 rupee difference between the two for an extra sitting room that is simply not worth it. I in fact was given to understand on the telephone that the sitting room had couches that could accommodate two extr people, but that was not the case. They would need... More

A place with very good service all around and the evening at the private beach was relaxing. Great food as well. Resort is well maintained and great place for family as well as friends. Room service was good as well and staff were very helpful. Nice pool but it's 9 ft and 4 ft place is short. Thanks IBR
