HIGHLY UNPROFESSIONAL - We booked 22 rooms to host guests for a wedding and paid in full 2 months in advance. Rooms were not ready when guests arrived. Last minute changes to the rooms reserved. They cancelled the reserved rooms failed to allocate alternate rooms. They finally allotted rooms late in the evening and again took back the allotted rooms... More

I visited this resort a couple of days back with my family. The resort premises is clean and the staff are also cooperative. The buffet spread was good, however the waterfalls in the family swimming pool is the star attraction here. You do have the beach and the kids play area with other facilities which are also good. Overall we... More

Went on a trip with colleagues, 20 of us, Cost per person was Rs.500/-, out of which Rs.400/- could be used for ordering food. Outside the resort is beach, but not clean - Probably no one owns it. No welcome drink, staff were not bothered to attend. Most of us played cricket, good ground to play. A small swimming pool,... More

We travelled to this resort for a wedding. The wedding venue is pleasant enough. However the rooms were very basic which was unexpected given that this is a "resort ". There was no hot water and the mattresses were hard as nails. We received no new towels or bed sheets over the course of 4 days. The rooms were only... More

This is an old resort but immaculately clean with liquor banned. Hence very good for families. Just next to beach. We stayed over for the New Year and it was great. The program me conducted by an TV actress was extraordinary. She involved all the audience which made the evening great, unlike other events where u just look and there... More

Buharis is quite a name in hotel & restaurant industry. Traditionally cooked food reminds of the era with which only buharis' name was associated. Now they are also trying to catch up with the competition which the modern fast food places with better ambiance and better service and better food quality provides. But one can not help trying it once... More

We were a group of friends with families that had a party. The place is fabulous with nice trees all around. There are a few party halls/decks/lawns. And there is always more than a couple of parties which can be a negative. They have nice sports options like cricket, badminton, volleyball etc. The beach is so near and beckons the... More

Dated place with no up to date facilities. Took children for a swim and was told I needed to pay to even watch them swim! Was asked to sit outside a fence inspite of an empty pool and children aged just 8 and 10. This after we had made preliminary enquires on the phone and even at the desk before... More

Went to this resort on an Official Team outing. This resort posses an Old - under-maintained look. Its not attractive. Seems like the management has neglected this for renovation. Comming to food, its not good either. The waiters are very much stringent while serving the buffet food. Food quality is not good. It doesn't worth the money which we paid.... More
