A great place to have your team offsite. You can do both serious stuff (planning, presentations, meetings) and also fun stuff (Paint ball, Cricket, they have a big ground, pool, ATV, rope games, etc) They serve pure veg food and the spread is small but delicious and sumptuous. A 90 min drive from Chennai (peak time) and a ideal getaway...

The property is good, well maintained. You need your car or other transport. It will be difficult in the night to reach, bad road. Inside it is good. You even will not get disturbed by your cell phone. They give some wifi . Good for holiday , you can relax.

A good concept of rooms linked to pool. But maintenance of rooms, quality of food and the swiftness of service leaves one wanting. The villas especially are like old fashioned guesthouses and are not worth the money. The frogs toads and tadpoles live in the room and washrooms respectively.

I have been here twice. But this time with family was awesome experience. Staff is very courteous, food is amazing & hygienic. Best part is pool is attached to every room. Need to consider some more activities for children. Jain food availability is best benefit. Go for it.

This resort is around 15 kms from Mahabalipuram near Kalpakkam. You will find it difficult to find the road from ECR to this resort unless you keep an eye on the road signs. It is away from the congestion of ECR. The location is very calm and in a village like atmosphere. Ample car parking available. The restaurant is open...
