Its peaceful and greenery all around the resort with a vast beach in the vicinity. Its an awesome place for sea beach lovers, with splashing waves heard all day and a spectacular view of the beach. Good hospitality and food. Since there are no shops nearby, Sunil proved very helpful. He can drive anytime to get you anything!
