The hotel is part of German Bakery. This is the second property. The Beach hotel original is below the German Bakery. The "Beach Hotel II" is a four story building with shops on the ground floor, a restaurant "Fusion" on the first floor and rooms on the top two floors. They are also have a parking and road connection unlike many other hotels on the Light House beach. Both the hotels and restaurants are run by German Lady, whom we could not meet and say hello though. We stayed in the Beach Hotel II, room 202.
The first thing you notice is the spotlessly clean stairs and corridors. Once you enter the room you are welcomed by a large french window and a quite big sit out area beyond facing the waves. The rooms are decorated very tastefully with terracota tiles. The toilet is exceptionally clean. In fact every thing about the hotel is done with good amount of tasteful thought. I think they have about 10 rooms between the two floors out of which 3 on the second floor are air-conditioned. From all the rooms you get a full view of the ocean and the light house beach as the hotel is located in one corner of the beach adjacent to the light house. The rooms are basic with no wardrobes or in-room tea facility but they do have a television (in case you want) and a phone to connect to the reception. They only serve drinks in the room but no in-room dining service. That should not be a problem as food is available in the "Fusion" restaurant downstairs. My only suggestions would be to put a ceiling fan in the balconies and some soft towels. After few days of sun burns soft towels would be very much necessary (my personal desire).
The restaurant is called "Fusion" because in the menu they have food options from east and west on either side and a fusion menu in the middle. The options are not too many though. But the menu is slightly different in look and feel from the many other restaurants on the light house beach and the serving of the dishes and garnishing are also quite nice.
The whole team of Beach Hotel II are very helpful and ever smiling. I can't say the same for the people in the German Bakery though.
Comparing with many other stay options on the light house beach, this may be a bit expensive but you can be assured of cleanliness, great view and welcoming smile. If you want to stay right on the beach, don't want regular business or luxury hotel look and feel, want a clean well decorated hotel room to spend a relaxing time then this is the place I sincerely recommend.
