Staying at Sterling was a superb experience. Right from the way they welcomed us to the service, it was all superb !! All the staff were very forthcoming and willing to help. Overall the trip has become memorable because of the resort itself.

A bit away from Puri main beach but very nice place having excellent view of the Bay of Bengal. Good food and well trained staffs. We spent four nights and enjoyed a lot. The swimming pool is clean and well maintained. There is enough empty space/greenery for children to play as well. Very good for family trips

Just came back from a superb 3-day visit to Puri. The hotel is at the far-end of the beach. In fact it is the last hotel. There's no approach from the beach, the entrance is from the back, through the fields. The roads are in need of dire repair and I am told it will be done fairly soon. The... More

We visited this place in a group of 8 ppl in mid August for 2 days. To start with this place is really far from Puri city and travelling to & fro is costly given that there are harldly any worthwhile activities in the resort. The food is bad & the entire resort is ill maintained. But the biggest disappointment... More

This is a good hotel. We stayed in a junior suite which looked more like a duplex house. Good and prompt service. Prompt room service. Good welcome. This property is vary far from the Puri station (6-7kms) and autos demand INR 200, we settled for INR 150. May drivers were reluctant to drop us to this hotel citing the pathetic... More

Golden Sand Puri is an excellent resort but it is too far away from the city. It has been wrongly mentioned on the web site that it is 2 KM from the temple, actually it is approx. 5 - 7 KM from the temple. Correct information should be given on the web site, so that the people are not miss... More

Great resort with very good amenities only drawback for some people may be that its far from the action area (swargdwar). But if you are looking for a peaceful holiday with good amenities and great hospitality this is the place 4 u. A round trip to swargdwar in a auto costs a mere 200 Rs.

The huge property is the best located hotel in Puri if you want to unwind & relax, with its excellent service staff (reception &dining room). Even the GM, Mr. Paul & his executive Mr. Ranjeet, gave personal attention to make my stay memorable. On the flip side, we had poorly maintained rooms & amenities, absence of wi-fi, beach access only... More
