“Came back Refreshed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

The only thing I can tell about the resort is… it is exclusive, tucked away from the crowd.
Murud being a small town and not many options in terms of very good hotels, sand Piper has the great advantage of the location. It’s on a hill facing the beach.
One look at the property and we forgot that we had travelled for over 4 hours from Mumbai.
It’s a 2 storied cottage style structure with the pool and lawn facing the beach.
There are lots of hotels on the beach front with direct access to the beach but not for a second we felt we should have stayed somewhere else.
We made a last minute reservation so could only get the 70% sea view rooms.
The food was great. We preferred not to go with their food package and ordered as per our likings. A special thanks for the chef who prepared special meal for my Kid as per our instructions.
The rooms are decently sized with clean bed sheet and pillows. We of course had to ask for towels.
Room Service is decent.
Best part is of course the restaurant view and the pool sit out.
Had a great time there.
P.S. - Carry your own drinks. There is only 1 shop in Murud from where you can buy stuff and most eateries there don’t serve liquor.

Room Tip: Must go for the Sea facing Rooms

We went there with family and must say...location is superb...to get an unlimited sea view is just what we want after hectic life in Mumbai.......we were staying in 100% sea facing rooms and views were amazing....

Hotel service was quite nice...On Sunday as most of the people have checked out....we were asked for our preference of food and accordingly Buffet was prepared..it was awesome....

Pool is nice...can be maintained little more....sunset view from Balcony is a treat.....

overall satisfied with the experience..wont mind going again

Room Tip: Sea facing room is a must for this Hotel....

This resort overlooks the Arabian sea from a height and is the best located hotel in Murud. The balcony attached to my room has a full view of the ocean and its wonderful to have morning tea there and see the sky brighten gradually.

However, the meal service is not up to the mark. The dinner buffet was late and was laid only by 9pm. It is late when you have spent the full day in sightseeing and are very hungry, The morning bed tea was served only at 7.30am when my wife banged at the kitchen doors and shouted at the staff till one person woke up to serve tea, which was quite delicious. The tea is always with ginger and served in paper cups. The staff is courteous and helpful and pool clean and service can be improved by a attentive and listening management.

Room Tip: 100% sea view room

We (me, wife and kid) stayed at Sand Piper Resort last weekend along with a friend (couple). The rooms were supposed to be assigned together but we ended up staying at 2 different corners of the resort (2 different buildings) inspite of early confirmed bookings...I was assigned a below avg room (room 235), whereas my friend was assigned a room which was acceptable inspite of paying the same price (AC economy without meals). The lunch and dinner (ala carte) was very good but the breakfast was not upto the mark, especially with the buffet charges being INR 180/head. Better to order ala carte rather than going for the buffet.
The resort has great views from the restuarant's terrace and a decent swimming pool.
I would like to highlight the fantastic response / great service provided by the team working at the resort. My kid (1.5 yrs) was not feeling well in the evening. Everyone including the room boys offered help in terms of getting medicines, taking my kid to the doctor etc. Great support was shown by Mr. Philip (Manager) in helping me out during my stay. Special thanks to him.
If you are looking for great rooms, you would find better options elsewhere....But I would like to state that I would definetly like to go back to the resort for great views,decent food, relaxing location, and very very helpful manager and his team.
Thank you...

Room Tip: Go for the rooms near the restuarant...Avoid rooms near parking...

Although the location of the property is good as most reviews suggest the overall feel of the place is dingy.
The AC Economy rooms are not in good state in that the furniture is below average and walls are all patchy.
Not worth the money(4.5K with all meals for 2). Better to pay a little more and stay at a better place. Although I do not find it justified the price that the resorts charge in Murud.
One will get a much better hotel at half the price in Mahableshwar or Matheran.

In continuation to my review of Sea Shell Resort, we checked into Sand Piper on 6th November and immediately regretted our hastiness in checking into Sea Shell a day prior. Sand Piper is on a hillock with amazing views and the resort welcomes you in its vast open space rather than a claustrophobic feeling. True it needs refurbishing as most hotels in Murud would require, but value for money for the price and lovely food, big swimming pool overlooking the sea. In the evening its pure bliss to laze by the pool and listen to some lovely music. Hats off to the manager Philip who does an awesome job to make guests comfortable. Highly recommended place. yes the beach is a good 5 mins walk but nothing compares to the lovely atmosphere it provides. Some of the photos put up by other travellers are a replica of its true state.
