“Worth for Money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

We have been in this resort for a Bachelor party, really these guys end our days with wonderful experience. All the staffs are so decent and respecting the customers. Also the beach view of the resorts is the big positive points for this guys. Both families and friends can enjoy this resort. Good one .

Have been to shelter Resort on Jan-19 wknd as a family trip.
Really very poor resort.
Rooms - Very Poor
Food: Not even worth to say that as food
Service: Sucks

Suitable only for bachelors those who simply satisfied by a bottle of beer.

We had taken 2 standard club rooms for one night and one day package. Rooms were very neet. Nice room service. Swimming pools were clean with restrictions ... only t shirts and trousers allowed for both men and wemen. Easy access to private beach which is very clean. Nice stay .. food was ok. Not very good in taste but was managable.

I selected this resort as part of my 20 member team overnight outing. The resort is about 20 kms from Sholinganallur junction on the ECR road and offered an instant relief from an ambience perspective after having been to some other beach houses.

PROS:
a. Good swimming pool
b. 3-4 conference rooms of various sizes
c. Nice lawns (to look at, not for trespassing)
d. Neat rooms for the apartment types- not very resorty but more like a 1980's hotel, including the wall mounted AC and super huge CRT TVs. The cottages looked more modern and should be an ideal choice for couples.
e. Food was tasty and buffet choice was limited but was different between lunch and dinner. Breakfast saw Idli, Vada with chutney and sambar, poor toast and offered choice of eggs were boiled eggs which was a slight dampner.
f. Hot water in the shower!

CONS:
a. The resort can take up to 100+ guests for staying and for those day based sessions up to 180 - so it can get noisy and crowdy, taking away the choice of privacy.
b. Not too much to do on the beach except play volleyball, cricket, walk or swim in the sea.
c. Evening tea & snacks were common for all guests on the beach and hence it was quite irritating to be with other people - I skipped it.
d. F&B guy made a mistake with the headcount (increased it) which was rectified but sorting that was the last activity which spoilt the departure proceedings.

The manager, Mr Elumalai was very clear with the prices and did his best to ensure that my team had a good stay. So my thanks to him.

Overall a good place to host small-mid team outings... not a very couples/family friendly place.

Room Tip: Choose the cottages if you are going as couple...

Excellent place for family stay.Good ambience, good food. Rooms were maintained very well and staff were very friendly.Suitable for family get together, business meetings......Calm and neat beach area with securty people around gives more comfort and peace.Well planned play areas for kids and nearby crocodile park and mamallapuram as well makes this place exciting for kids. Safe and comfortable and pocket friendly place to spend weekends.

Room Tip: Beach facing rooms are awesome

The Location is excellent, the front office helped us in getting things organised at late night arrival, Kitchen staff were excellent , even though not much to offer . Lot of restrictions around the beach and only evenings we were allowed to move around. Pool was good but lacked more amenities , for childrens there were not much play area. The resort was well maintained and the staff voluntarily came for cleaning morning and evening.
Avoid weekends as there are huge local people moving in , other days of the week you can bargain 10% discount.
Most of the requirements have to be planned and discussed with the staff pre-hand for a better service.
