And sir regarding the card payment, puri being a costal area it does not have a very good internet... More

The beach is less crowded, so you can enjoy it. - Not very far from Puri rail station (if you are coming via train). - Rikshaw/auto are available easily (though... More

All sea facing rooms have great unhindered sea view minus the crowd of Swargadwar area and coupled with a balcony. The connectivity is great, you'll get autos and rickshaws round the clock, also...
