Having been coming here for more than a decade now and we still find this resort very appealing. We chose to stay in the cottages which are well furnished and some have great view of the beach (#10, 11 and 12). Food also is excellent at the coffee shop and the Bay View restaurant. During the day, you can either... More

Lot of space to play, walk, and have a great time with family and friends. I have stayed in other prime hotel in vicinity, I was truly impressed... More

Right at the beach, nice surroundings. Transport on compound is done by electric cars. Excellent! Pool is flat, but has annoyingly noisy acoustic crow expellers. Food is average buffet or a la carte; ridiculously overprized Buffet by the Sea (13.000INR for a family of 4) Staff: Helpful, flexible and supportive; maintenance was helpless with broken lock. We occupied 2 rooms,... More

Choose a cottage if you are here for pleasure or a room if here on business. Complex cocktails aren't great but the beer and food is spot on. The catch of the day is great accompanied by the wine. Service is second to none, no free WiFi though.

We have been here for new year celebrations and we enjoyed the stay. Food was excellent. Generally service used to be excellent but this time we have wait for long time if we order anything in room. Kids enjoyed the beach walk and clean beach in chennai to play.

A weekend well spent at the fisherman's cove with some crazy fun and great hospitality. The front desk handled our check in very smoothly and pleasantly surprised us with the shell garlands:) Suhail at our wing welcomed us with a warm smile and instantly agreed to change our rooms when we wanted a corner property. Great breakfast spread and quick... More

We stayed in superior charm–sea view room, with great view of the beach and pool. The room was neat but bathroom was too small and congested. Hospitality was something I must appreciate. Breakfast and service at seagull was great. First day we had lunch at seagull and we didn't like it much. We had the most disappointing dinner of my... More

Where does one start? We checked in on the 26 of July for 2 nights and has been the best resort hotel till date. The service - impeccable, the food - outstanding, the breakfast - definitely something you'd want to wake up for. The swimming pool is quite nicely designed. Enough room for the entire hotel to swim in. The... More

Service is beyond exceptional especially in the dining room where the staff is phenomenal. Front desk is just ok. Rooms are tired especially cottages next to the sea and are in serious need of a overhaul....hopefully they will renovate soon. Beach is excellent and very local. Would recommend for a nice getaway
