We stayed there on December 30,2016. Visiting the resort after almost 10 years.The Cottages are good as they are close to the sea, you can see the sea and hear the waves. The rooms could do with an interior upgrade as they look as if much has'nt been done in a while. When we checked in we were'nt properly briefed...

I hoped to give this resort a higher score for reasons I'll explain, but I really feel it doesn't deserve it. We had booked a 'Premium Indulgence Cottage' (sea view, own terrace etc.) for a 5-night stay as the conclusion of our 23-night tour of Tamil Nadu. However, when we arrived and saw the room, we felt like checking out...

The sea view from the garden cottage was just nice. And the overall experience was good. Only thing, the gardeners should speak more quietly. Peaceful sitting on the porch, drinking coffee and watching the sun rise. The bay view dinner was awesome.

We had an excellent stay with our 5 month old son and we thoroughly enjoyed. All facilities were excellent and wish we could have stayed longer. There are facilities for kids and for all walks of life. The spa is excellent. And team serves according to your needs and takes care of all aspects.

we stayed here for my daughters birthday celebrations and it was a lot of fun. The staff were helpful and very proficient. The property is beautiful and well maintained. Do try the seafood restaurant at the beach side or the Upper deck for Italian / french cuisine.

Very nice pool. Upper deck and bay view restaurants were both worth dining in. Breakfast was superb. They need to clean the beach regularly. Drinks took a long time (more than 30 mins each time) at the swim up bar.
