This is a prime eco-friendly property on the seashore just inside Mahabalipuram, very close to all the major sights. Also very good for weekend breaks from Chennai. Large, very-well maintained lawns & gardens, lots to walk around, choice of multiple leisure activities. The star attraction is the really large & inviting Lagoon Pool ringed by the Chalets just beside it. There is also an additional ocean-front pool. 2 Spas to rejuvenate yourself.

Three types of accommodation available - Chalets, Villas (some with private Pools), "Bus. Class" Villas (Ocean-front with private swing)- all large-sized & well-furbished & very clean. Beds are comfy, with a choice of pillows, large en suite Bathrooms with all amenities. The towels are specially hygiene-treated and very soft !

The staff are all uniformly courteous & friendly, greeting you all the time. Key staff names & contact phone nos. are given in the key card, showing their seriousness to their claim of "100% Guest Satisfaction". I found the one-touch phone service quite useful & responsive.

Food choices are quite good for the breakfast buffet, emphasising local cuisine(except that only one fresh juice available, & readymade coffee/tea self-help service was not OK), and only one restaurant was open for dinner, somewhat limiting the cuisine choices.

Ecological sensitivity is shown by 100% recycling of water, master switches for room lights & ACs, even in the small-sized facial tissues near the Bath Mirror.

Strangely, toothbrush & toothpaste were missing in the toilet amenities, and the Shower bathgel dispenser was choked - both only small disappointments. Bath Slippers were not provided in the rooms, which otherwise would be of great help to guests who do not bring along their own outdoor slippers.

Room Tip: For a glorious dawn & a full-front view of the sun rising from the ocean, choose one of the &quo...

The surroundings and the pool as well as the beach restaurant are magnificent. The food might take a some time to be served but it's perfect. Nice beach and a fantastic pool and green areas. Close to Mamallapuram that is a village that is a must see when in the area.

Having cycled from Chennai we were delighted when we were showed to our room past the enormous superb swimming pool. The room was very spacious spotlessly clean with everything you would expect from an up market Hotel. We very much enjoyed our 2 days here.
The beach was lovely, you could walk into town this way. One evening we had a surb lobster meal on the beach in one of the numerous restuarants.
We also ate the buffet in the Hotel & it was nice but we are fans of such food. Breakfast was ok.
We enjoyed a couple of Kinfishers in the bar which was nice & cool.
There was also a delightful infinity pool on the beach that we spent a hour at one afternoon.
Did some work on my laptop with the no problem wifi in the room.

Came here for a weekend break after landing in Chennai. It was a 1.5 hr ride from the airport and quite comfortable.
Like a beach resort should be the property is spacious and well spread out. The check in process was quick and the staff were welcoming. We were directed to our pool view room on the upper level. The rooms were great, spacious and comfortable, neat and clean. The best part was the pool view and the pool itself. A long main pool at the centre was amazing. A great respite from the heat. They have the paddle pool also for the kids which was great fun for my 2 year old son.
The resort has many activities such as Air gun shooting, quad biking, boating etc. which gave us enough options to keep ourselves busy.
The beach has a direct access from the resort and is neat and clean.
The indoor activity room for children is also nice with a ball pool and blackboard and other entertainment to keep children busy.
We walked around a resort a fair bit to enjoy the landscape but at time the Golf cart ride is needed to get around as it can get tiring because the space is huge.
The gardens are well manicured and look beautiful.
The staff at the hotel is excellent. Very helpful and friendly, they are trying their best to make your stay comfortable and we were very happy. The restaurant staff and the chef too deserve a special mention because of their out of the way helpful attitude. We requested something special for our son and the chef personally did it for us as we wanted it!
We ate at both the restaurants and food was very good. Great taste and service. Can’t fault it. The food at the Wharf particularly was excellent and honestly we didn’t expect to get such good food in Mahabalipuram.
Only 2 issues with our stay as follows:
1. The children’s outside play area is particularly dirty. The slides and swings etc are not clean and in desperate need of refurbishment. In the overall well maintained resort this was an unpleasant surprise. I informed the management when I left and they said they would take care of it.
2. This is a unique issue in the Infinity pool which is swarmed by crows. While swimming there the crows are not only bathing in the pool itself but also are flying around and touch your head when you are swimming! That was annoying to me and scary to my wife. It seems these crows are doing this to all guests. The management needs to do something to stop this.

Other than the above 2 issues our stay was great and would strongly recommend anyone considering a weekend break to stay here. We had a wonderful time!

The kids area has been thoroughly cleaned and painted and also we are in the process of landscaping that area around the kids play area.

since we are eco friendly resort we are not suppose to shoot the crow and we are finding ways and means of shooing them away.

We hope to see you soon when your travels bring you to our area.

Stayed 2 nights at the end of January 2013. The resort is very nice and the rooms comfortable with a lot of space. I stayed in a bottom floor room with the entrance on the poolside. The main pool is huge and I really enjoy the pool near the beach. Internet access was reliable.
Not much to complain about other than I never had a hot shower and there is a lack of lounge chairs around the main pool.
I recommend this resort.

This was a long awaited break and after some initial hiccups I had one of the best Beach holidays ! What really works for this Resort are it's location and the Staff. The sea facing room I had was one that was recently built and was state of the art. The Food was good, particularly the Room Service and it is amazing how the food managed to arrive Hot, despite the distance! The infinity Pool and Spa add to the experience. Things can go awry, but ask and you shall recieve in abundance:). Every single member of Staff that I interacted with went out of their way to provide great service and that is commendation in itself!

Room Tip: Try and ask for the newer sea facing rooms... they are among the best I have stayed in!
