“Peaceful.... Relaxing stay”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

The resort is very beautiful. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. The beach was very neat and clean with shade and chairs provided appropriately. Lawns are very well maintained. The buffet spread was large and tasty served by courteous staff. We enjoyed our stay

Nice location, clean and neat, only issue is food options are limited for kids.
they should have some south indian meals for kids.
also the beach is very dangerous, we cannot play in those waters.
Except that very nice resort , scenic, clean and neat swimming pool, staff are very polite.

We stayed with few of our family members who were there to attend a marriage. The private beach was the best attraction where you can just sit and look at the waves and gaze at the horizon. The grounds had a lot of palm trees and manicured lawns. The hammocks were good for relaxation too. The breakfast spread was a good with a lot of South Indian dishes and modest choice of western foods. The lunch buffet had many choices but was somewhat priced on the higher side. The rooms were very clean and the house keeping in general was very good. The delux rooms were modest in size with all amenities. The restaurant had very nice view of the sea . You can just sit there sipping tea. The staff were very courteous and helpful.

On the negative side : large group bookings might disturb the tranquility of the place during the day especially in the week ends. Wifi was not working but you could browse for free at the hotel reception.

Room Tips: Room 211-215 give good view of the sea. The amusement park adjacent is an attraction for those addicted to rides and roller coasters.

Room Tip: Rooms 211 - 214 delux rooms are sea facing

I stayed with my family (2 adults and 2 kids) for 3 nights during christmas, 2012.

What was good:
- Location of the resort, right by the sea and with its private beach
- We got a room (Club Suite) that was close to the beach and the restaurant
- We were lucky to get good weather (not hot)
- Kids enjoyed swimming pool, games, and activity room
- The restaurant located right on beach
- Breakfast was good with both continental and south indian choices (complimentary)
- Room and bathroom were of decent size, the hotel also provided additional bed (for a cost)

Disappointments:
- The furniture in the room, while usable, was old
- Hot water supply in the bathroom was not always reliable
- The dinner buffet was expensive (800 per head plus taxes) and repetitive - we went out for dinner after 1st night, and there are good choices available
- The Activity room is not well maintained
- We had to always request for towels - they were delivered, however, I would expect not to have to make the request in the first place
- We had a driver, and they could not provide a place for him to sleep

Room Tip: Get a room near the beach and restaurant.

Overall experience was average and very mixed. Some of the issues we found were too basic to have missed scrutiny by staff (water accumulation, Hot Water, AC issues, Fridge not working etc). Hence for the tariff we were charged versus the issues we faced it was not a very pleasing, hassle free experience overall. All in all, quite overpriced for the facilities and service, but, will think twice before staying again.
1. Location is very apt facing the beach, walkable from the rooms
2. Very helpful and courteous staff
3. Far too many maintenance issues were found in the rooms (AC issue, Fridge not working, Water accumulation near bath areas, inconsistent or no hot water etc). One of the rooms we stayed had very stained linen on the furniture. We could never bring ourselves to sit on that
4. Found the functions / parties in the resort too close for comfort to the rooms and guests attending those, being present all over the place (Swimming pool, beach front, boating area etc). Families will find these a nuisance basically.
5. Breakfast was good, but, items were repeated too frequently. Dinner buffet was fairly fine.

Room Tip: If you choose to stay here, make sure the room is from the new block and please check the room first...

I stayed here during a campaign shoot on East Coast Road as it was the nearest resort to the shoot location.

This hotel is inconsistent on many fronts.
- The first room I checked into had old furniture, leaking walls and no hot water. After complaining about the hot water I was changed to a room with modern interiors, rain shower and new furniture. So clearly there are parts of the hotel that have been recently renovated and other that are in shambles
- The food quality is inconsistent and expensive. I had asked for the eggs to be well done, instead they came looking grey on the inside and burnt on the outside
- The service staff are lethargic

We stayed in this resort by the month of October. Its suitable for a nice weekend package with family and friends. Closer to beach. The restaurant is situated near the beach and gives a nice romantic feeling to have dinner with the sound of waves. All staff are friendly and they carry a smile when you come in contact with them. The room had a view of swimming pool and the beach. The ro om cleaning team has a great challenge in maintaining the cleanliness and interiors . Room is very small with a less space to walk.Room can be modified for better interiors and looks. Tap fittings are old fashioned. Food was good in the restaurant. Restaurant furniture can be changed, very hard to sit for a long time.Night time appearance with dim lights were very nice. A good location for a peaceful weekend. Overall service from all department was good.

Room Tip: Rooms near the pool are quieter and good
