Let me give a very balanced view of the resort and let me start with the not-so-good aspects first. I had read TripAdvisor reviews, which were mostly negative, before choosing the resort. And as expected, the experience was very close to what I had read. Rooms were really not appealing as the floors were very dirty. We had booked two... More

Good Location, Rooms were below standard and not at all worth for the rate charged. Food is below average. Swimming pool is neatly maintained. Poor service. Overall, I will not go again to this resort

Thnx Mr Jude (Manager) for the hospitality... This is beautiful property for some family time and for some romantic time with your loved ones.... Mahabalipuram is 10 mins away. This place is beside the beach with shacks

I went with family to have a relaxed & memorable weekend experience, but what turned out was a constant exercise in shifting rooms, arguing with the Reception over non-existent service & very ill-maintained rooms! I had booked two Deluxe sea-facing rooms for two nights. The Deluxe room looks like a budget hotel room. AC doesn't work well, keeps getting switched... More

Had been there as a team of 125 people. While the property is spacious with access to beach, pool etc, the quality of food is bad. The food is not refilled immediately and the choice of dishes are not great. The rest rooms are not clean and maintenance is poor

The USP of this hotel is the amazing view of the blue sea in front of it. On any sunny day, it looks heavenly. I went with my family here during a trip to Mahabalipuram. We stopped for lunch and were struck by the beauty of the place and the resort. Very well maintained, good food, neatly kept gardens, leading... More
