Ideal is definitely an ideal weekend getaway from Bangalore or Chennai. We stayed at the sea facing villa for 3 days and 2 nights. As many had mentioned earlier, the villa has a spacious bedroom, living room(with an attached toilet) and a decent dressing room. The living and the bedrooms give a fasinating view of the sea. This sea view is the best part of the villa. The villa also has a huge bathroom with jacuzzi,bathtub,shower-cube,etc. There was a power problem during our stay which left us to stay in the balcony for about an hour and we really enjoyed the night view/sound of the splashing waves during this time.
The beach is very private meant only for the residents(We heard that it is not the case when day outings are arranged for the office teams). We had a memorable time on the beach. There is a beach restaurant also which is ideal to spend the evening hours by the beach.
The resort has other facilities like a beach restaurant, swimming pool,etc. The morning buffet was complimentary, the spread was decent and the food was real good.
The staff were very friendly, we didn't have to tip anyone during the stay.
Room for improvement: The villa had old door locks, plumbing fittings which need replacement. Some renovation is required for the villa I guess.
