Elegance, delicious food and an unique experience in South India , this is the place to go if you are a sophisticated traveller. Located on a beach in an old Tamil village, the Bungalow is an old Fort which has been renovate by the Neemaran group. We walked along the beach and went to see the fishermen coming back from sea. The women were waiting to take the fishes to the auction market on the beach. I am an experienced traveller who goes to India every year . I highly recommend the Bungalow, it was peaceful, and give you an unique experience of South India far from the tourists.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Facing full east, The Bungalow on the Beach gives you your personal encounter with the sun, sea breeze and spray. Time becomes irrelevant here when you stand facing a glorious sunrise with : a 14th century Pandya temple on your left and a 17th century Danish fort to the right. Come taste ‘eternity’ in a stopover ! The restored Bungalow stands as a reminder of Ove Gjedde, a Danish Admiral sent by the king of Denmark with two ships. They were well received by the Nayak ruler of Tanjore, and given this territory for trading. Then Dansborg, the Fort of Tharangambadi – a solid example of Scandinavian military architecture, was established nearby to store and export pepper to Denmark. The oldest Lutheran church in India was built here in 1706. Today you can drive in through a beautiful gate of the majestic King Street, past Lutheran churches and grand bungalows of the Danish Governors’ and the British Collector’s residence. Re-live marine history; visit the temples of Kumbakonam and Tanjore. The town remains a glorious tribute to architecture from across the world. Tranquebar is reputed to have the thickest ozone layer in India which is ideal for relaxation as it rejuvenates and helps all those who want to prolong their life. ... more less
