This resort is located directly on the Gulf of Bengal just south of Chennai. The setting is tranquil with room to roam under coconut palms or along the beach. The rooms are average but comfortable. Wi-Fi is available only in the office. The restaurant is above average with a wide range of Indian dishes.

We have been here for a weekend. Our expeirence is too bad with this resort. Location is good. But the service is so bad. They took 2 hrs to serve the dinner in the restaurant. Quality and taste of the food is also poor.

We have been in this resort for a Bachelor party, really these guys end our days with wonderful experience. All the staffs are so decent and respecting the customers. Also the beach view of the resorts is the big positive points for this guys. Both families and friends can enjoy this resort. Good one .
