A last moment hunt for hotels in the Malvan area got me to this. This is a comparitively newer hotel in this area. I went with my extended family and had a relaxing experience here. The ambience is amazing.
Since this was a new hotel. the attached restaurant was slow in responding. Two different billing systems - restaurant delivers to room service and bills have to be settled on the spot. The hotel system takes an advance and can settle the bill when checking out. Housekeeping and security very good.
Towels and bath necessities are provided. Replenished daily if requested. The art work in the corridors and inside the rooms are a good touch.
The rooms are decently big with a good LCD TV and cable connection. Running hot water available. A very small balcony available to step outside. Being Malvan, the temperature is usually on the hotter side - the AC is good enough to keep the rooms cool. Very clean - housekeeping does a good job. The bed sheets and towels are arranged in different patterns daily. (A good surprise!!!)
Location and Amenities:
This is walking distance from the Malvan boat jetty, Chivala beach and the Rock garden. Right opposite a run down theater (that had seen better days). Driving to this hotel is a challenge because of its location right in the market place - the plus point is the proximity to every shop and sightseeing point in the area - everything is walkable.
The hotel itself doesnt have much recreation activities. They do have contacts with Scuba diving, snorkelling, water sports co-ordinators.
The attached restaurant is a sad place. Food service is nothing to rave about. Basic hunger satiable. Again since this is inside the market place, every corner has a small home restaurant ready to dish out meals.
The location. The cleanliness. The new hotel experience.
