Stayed with my friend for four nights, totally loved the hospitality. The hotel is at a walkable distance from the beach and has a colonial charm to it. The staff is also very humble and hospitable. Look forward to visiting again.

The ever so warm staff and their approachable attitude helped us have that extra (s)mile always! The Location! The proximity of the place from the “you name it” added that advantage of saving time from travelling... Be... More

Good food, staff is very nice. Chicken curries and starters were awesome. All marks to ambiance. Had a good time. I like the dim light and old french style design which is different than other regular restaurant and makes your evening great.
