My friend and I stayed there during New Year vacation. It's a nice non expansive place to stay. Especially if you are a backpack traveller. The beach is pretty close or you can even go across the river to see the real wild ocean. You can order food in the kitchen, but there are lots of cafes around. The place... More

For this hotel's review, i'll divide my comments to two portions: - beautiful river/sea front view: i give it two thumbs up. It offers you a literal experience of an accommodation on water even though the place is by the shore. I had the room facing the river & i think the view, fresh air & pristine surroundings is simply... More

The Hotel is located right besides the river thus allowing its guests an uninterrupted view of its natural surroundings, beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Me and my friends stayed in the hotel for 2 days and were overjoyed and... More

Nice place at the lagoon and with a view on the sea. The beach is stunning and empty. Boat return to this beautiful beach is 300 rupies. Worth going. We did it without booking and the saved us 70% of the online price at booking.com. Nice and good crew!

We stayed here for just one night and checked out the next evening, but we wish we could have stayed longer! The hotel has a gorgeous view of the river meeting the sea, and the rooms with the river view on the first level where we stayed were nice and cozy. The bathroom was clean and spacious. Due to the...
