Gandhara is a really charming place to unwind and feel at ease. The beach is very close and there are rickshaws available everywhere to take you wherever you want to go. But if you want to take some downtime, laze out by the pool in the hotel's pretty garden, this is the perfect spot for that as well.

Eventhough the hotel located at the noisy CT road, the rooms are distant enough from traffic to be not bothered by the horning.

“If staying for a few days, you can ask the staff to clean your room--they do a nice job. You might want to bring along a blanket for comfort if coming in the colder months. Front rooms can be noisy with activity on the street.”
