“Govt got access to Location and do not know how to maintain”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

This property is located in a really nice location with all the rooms having best sea/beach view. Some rooms have balcony and the ones without balcony are more spacious. You can still enjoy the view through the full wall glass window. The bathrooms were not maintained well. The water was not draining and door was broken. I really wish they take care of maintenance issues seriously, and do it on a ongoing basis. Rather than wait until it is completely broken and fixing it. I really enjoyed the view. Food is reasonably priced and good at Vihar restaurent adjacent to it. You have to eat breakfast only at the hotel restaurent which is OK. There are no other places close by to get breakfast. Hotel attendants wake you up to give you breakfast coupons in the morning rather than the giving them when checked in which I thought is very annoying. You go on a vacation not to get disturbed as much as possible. By the way, there is no AC or proper fans in the hotel restaurent.

Room Tip: Take the room close to reception area. It is hard to lug the luggage to far off rooms.

Its a out of the world xperience of staying there. We were simply amazed by the location and ambience of this property. Room service n staff behaviour n coordination r unique. Food is great though South Indian but amazing. Its a very serene place to njoy Rishikonda Beach from the rooms even. U can njoy sunrise n sunset from UR rooms even. Rooms r like semi studio apprtment. Xcept kitchen facility. Being at height its a good cool retreat compared to City weather. Definitely far from city but its a place to unwind in solitude.

Room Tip: If U choose this property U must have a car at UR disposal. U can njoy other attractions of City fr...

1) Big but isolated Resort on a hill top
2) No security issue
3) rooms are big and nice and have excellent view
4) Beach is just below the hotel
5) Foods are only state style and not so good
6) No outside locality

Room Tip: 1) Choose seperate cottage style rooms on 1st floor

We stayed for 3 nights in October 2011. We booked into the a/c rooms & the views from our rooms were breathtaking. The rooms were big, well furnished, clean & well maintained. Each room had its own balcony with sitting arrangement . Standing in the balcony of your room and watching the waves break on the shore, seeing the sunrise.. or the distant lights on the distant hills just takes away all your botherations.
service was also good but food was average... but trust me the view from the rooms are so GOOD that a foodie like me didn’t mind the absence of vairety or the lack in taste.

Room Tip: book into the a/c rooms or the presidential suite.. they are the best quality rooms & are situat...

View - View of the bay of bengal from atop this little hill is breathtaking. Rooms are all sea facing, so I believe views from any of the rooms is superb. The strong curve of the beach tapering towards the further end makes it all the more beautiful.

Rooms - We booked from Kolkata APTDC. I wanted a private verandah. My room charge per day was Rs. 2644 (incl taxes). The AC room was spacious, clean with double bed, had a large LCD, 2 sofas, coffee table, wardrobe, a small refrigerator, geyser in the bathroom...

Restaurant - The sea facing restaurant serves very good food. It also has an open section which is very soothing at night owing to the soft sea breeze.

Service - I had a feedback from friends about poor service, but surprisingly I found the service to be very satisfying.

Location - 16-18 km away from the railway stn and 24 km from the airport beach resort is remotely located and I found no shops nearby. Beach is a long flight of tiring stairs (esp when you are returning).

Beach - The beach line is short but good for bathing owing to absence of rocks. The beach hardly ever gets crowded due to the remoteness.

Room Tip: I saw some rooms whose sea views were being obscured by large trees sprucing up before them. Make su...
