A 350-year old bungalow that once housed the collector was renovated with 6-8 rooms. It is a high end resort with all kinds of amenities. We went with two little boys and they just thoroughly enjoyed the place. It was flanked by temples and a short drive from Thirukkadaiyur where lots of families perform 60th, 70th and 80th birthday ceremonies.... More

One cannot miss but notice all the history hidden in this place. A great place to just sit and enjoy the English break fast and listen to waves. The bungalow is just at the edge of the beach. I didn't stay here but visited their restaurant for breakfast.

The hotel has breathtaking views of the sea. The hospitality of the staff is really good and they take extra measures to ensure that their guests are satisfied. It's a kids friendly place and the food is also really tasty. Their fish keema dosai and the tharangambadi fish curry is very good and a must try.

Neemrana centralized Reservations did a con job of promoting high end rooms while the lesser priced ones were available. We were told that only two rooms (the ones with highest tariff ) were vacant at the time of booking. On reaching the property, we realized that most of the rooms were not occupied. We were also informed that “The Gate... More

Bunglow on the beach is beautiful beyond comparison. Especially when you are a Danille steel fan, reading about centuries old mansions renovated and walking in expecting a piece of history...that is exactly what you get here. There is this eeriee something in the air, with all my imagination of all the people who lived there so many decades ago. The... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The restored Bungalow stands as a reminder of a Danish Admiral, Ove Gjedde, sent by the king of Denmark with two ships. They were well received by the Nayak ruler of Tanjore, and given this territory. Then Dansborg, the Fort of Tharangambadi – a solid example of Scandinavian military architecture was established to export pepper to Denmark. The oldest Lutheran church in India was built here in 1706.Today you can drive in through a beautiful gate of the majestic King Street, past Lutheran churches and grand bungalows of the Danish Governors’ and the British Collector’s residence. Re-live marine history; visit the temples of Kumbakonam and Tanjore. The town remains a glorious tribute to architecture from across the world.Tranquebar is reputed to have the thickest ozone layer in India which is ideal for relaxation as it rejuvenates and helps all those who visit prolong their life. Facing full east, The Bungalow on the Beach gives guests their own encounter with the sun and sea breeze. Time becomes irrelevant when you stand facing the sunrise: a 14th century Pandya temple on your left and a 17th century Danish fort to the right.Come taste ‘eternity’ in a stopover! ... more   less
