We were there for 2 nights in Feb 2014. I would put the 2 key USPs of this resort as - abundant open space it offers and convenient access to an almost private beach. Overall, the property is very well maintained. Some people might find the studio apartment as bare-bones but I found it just about adequately furnished. The large... More

I stayed here with my family last year for our extended family 'get-together'. Its on the beach, very nice surroundings, landscaping was unique - everything is left wild. Rooms were large and had the 'unfinished' look, bathroom has outdoors area. Plenty of activity for adults and kids too on campus. Overall, highly recommended

Visited this resort in Feb. Its one of the better properties of Club Mahindra. It has some good space which most of its other resorts do not have. The rooms were good but would be better if they are equipped with wardrobes, kitchenette etc. The restaurant was excellent. The access to beach is good. There is lot of space for... More

A nice resort, sprawling over a good few acres. it took us a 2km walk to cover the periphery. The best part was the clean quiet -almost private beach. Apart from club Mahindra local activities, there is not much to do but sit, relax and laze around. The morning sunrise is very refreshing and so is the evening breeze by... More

The resort is away from town and it helps if you have your own car. Food is great. Ground floor rooms are good. They face the landscaped gardens surrounding the buildings and have a full glass front. When the curtains are drawn one feels as if sitting in the garden but in the comforts of air conditioning. They have a... More

This resort is not as developed as the other CM properties and is about 30 km away from the town. Has adjoining beach,good swimming pool and other activities to relax into. Very friendly staff. Moderate food quality.
