Nice Ambience

The Terrace had a buffet set up..and seating by the pool with local artists performing while you are enjoying your meal... There were a lot of options in the menu but since majority of them were "South Indian" dishes, I didn't enjoy much.. Though in the end, when the chef came to know that it was... read more

The views are breathtaking. You sit in a traditional setup next to a fancy pool and the sea in the distance. The food is great too, and there are too many staff to serve you.

We were there with Family for Buffet Dinner in May-2015. Was not a delightful experience expected from the brand. The place boasts of fine dining and service to go with it. We waited quite a while for someone to pick up our vehicle for the proclaimed Wallet Parking. The restaurant was teaming with staff all running helter skelter- so we... More

Extensive Range but repetitive menu ... may get bored when stay is longer! There is a place attached to swimming pool and sea shore as view. There is also an air conditioned room to avoid the sultry humid weather.

At the terrace you get both english and Indian food. The Indian food itself is of two types 'South Indian' and 'North Indian' If you go for the buffet you can taste a wide variety of food and different types of dessert

Gob smacking food, whether breakfast, lunch or dinner. The menu options never repeated for the 3 days that we stayed. We loved the kerlal cuisine prepared by chef. For valentines day dinner, the menu was even more elaborate and sumptuous. For a foodie, there are very few 5 star places which are actully worth visiting only for food.. and this... More
