“Great Location + Great Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2014

We went on a month self-planned tour of India and selected hotels that were recommended by Trip Advisor and this included the Radisson BLU Temple Bay. We stayed 2 nights. It has an unbeatable location very close to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Group of Monuments at Mahabalipuram. The setting on the Arabian Sea is lovely and the entire property is beautifully landscaped with several good restaurants. The service is exceptional. My partner spent his birthday at the restaurant and they were surprised him with a delicious birthday cake. We highly recommend!

Room Tip: Look at the room before you settle in. We had to change rooms. They gave us a room on the construc...

One of the best beach resorts on the East coast road, the resort is really keeping up with the standard of Radisson hotels. Amazing place to chill with your partner or friends and pamper yourself with spa, swimming and lots of games. There are 2 bars within the premises, and about 2-3 restaurants to cater to your tastebuds. The price of the rooms are a little steep even during off-season. so thats the negative. overall a great experience.

The resort is very beautiful and well maintained. The infinity and meandering pools are wonderful! Service is good, and the food at the Wharf is amazing..the spread for breakfast is great.
We stayed at the sea view chalets and found the room to be just perfect.
The beach is also lovely, although I didn't see a lifeguard around.

The property is huge and very spread out - would help if they had more buggies to ferry people around. We spent a significant amount of time waiting to be transported..

Value for money, great ambience mixed with nature, good swimming pool and their own private sea beach makes a good sense to be there for stay.morning breakfast is complimentary and caters good combinations of breads, juices, south Indian cuisines and continent cuisines. I will again want to be there with my family for my next holidays.since this was my business trip there with my colleagues.

When you're itching for a beach vacation and don't have time on your side, this is probably the best option for Chennaites. If you are looking for a secluded beach vacation, this is one of the better spots in India.

This is a huge property with one of the biggest lazy pools I have seen. You will probably need a buggy ride to get from one part to another, else a lazy walk.

The star attraction of this place is the lazy pool and the infinity pool - You have to experience it to believe it. You could even feel your stress melt away.

The food is okay, nothing outstanding and at the same time nothing to complain about, except the price. There is also a beach-side restaurant that is a great option for moon-lit dinners.

The staff at the hotel are courteous, service oriented and pay attention to detail. So, no bad experiences here.

They have a spa that provides basic services, but staff are usually not very chatty and lacking smile.

Overall, a fun experience, but a pricey proposition. Definitely recommendable for the ambience.

My husband and I stayed there for our 2nd Anniversary and it sure didnt disappoint.

The rooms are nice and spacious, if you book the sea facing villas (which are a tad bit heavy on the pocket), its even better. The Wharf restaurant is a beautiful dining option, it can get very very windy though! The breakfast spread is nice and elaborate and the food tastes quite good. They have ample of activities you can choose from - archery, air gun shooting, catamaran ride, zorbing etc etc.

Its a very well planned resort as you have practically nothing outside (unless you want to see the monuments etc around, which are ok for a bit but considering the heat, you wanna be indoor or at least on the beach!).

The staff are quite nice and warm. Definitely recommended! Do book well in advance though or I found a better way to book this place - ONLINE ! Even if the hotels says no rooms available, you will end up finding one on one of the agent websites!

Room Tip: If you book a villa, choose a sea facing ! Its brilliant. Rooms - pool facing at least!

We had a wonderful time and certainly would come back. Great view, nice pool, fantasitc beach, nice activities, very nice grounds, and fantastic breakfast, good service and good value for the money. Only complaint is that the resturants, though good are on the expensive side. For example the dinner buffet is 1525 rupees.

The hotel seems to have been built about 16 years ago and in some ways it is starting to show its' age. To qualify as a real 5 star hotel the bathrooms should be renovated, more electrical outlets installed, pool furniture upgraded, etc. Is this up to the level of Trident, Lalit or ITC - NO, but it is very nice and as long are you arn't expecting a real 5 star hotel you will have a great time.

Room Tip: Rooms 60 and 61 are on the 2nd floor overlooking the small pool and the Bay - they are very nice! T...
