Blue Lily Beach Resort - Puri
Ranked #23 of 81 Hotels in Puri
Reviewed September 3, 2013

I have stayed for one night.It is not a beach resort.It take nearly 10 minutes to walk to beach. The reception and lobby does not give appeal of a resort.It is more like a hostel with 2 rows of rooms. The room size is good but very-2 poor in upkeep. It does not offer twin beds despite request ,so only meant for couples.The furniture to linens are poor quality. Only good part is its swimming pool.The food is average quality.

Room Tip: lawn and swimming pool facing

I booked this hotel from Kolkata and was in communication with their Kolkata office sales representative Mr. Avijit Saha. We were 12 adults + 1child traveling altogether so I had booked 1 quadruple, 2 triple bed and 1 double bed all of deluxe/suite category. Per night charges are INR 4200 for quadruple, INR 3200 for triple & INR 2600 for double bed. We were expecting the rooms and services to be of luxury category since the charges was quite high compared to other Puri hotels. At the time of booking Avijit committed that we will get the rooms with side sea facing balcony. However when we reached there we were taken to rooms in the 1st floor which doesn't have any balcony. The quadruple room 1110 hardly had any extra space to walk freely within the room. Every time you have to close the door in order to make space for you to pass. They initially allotted room no 1107 against out double bed booking. As soon as I entered the room I noticed that the cabinet and the ceiling is fully damped and it has a foul smell. I protested to accept the room and literally had to shout at the front desk. They shifted me to room no 1305 which was far better in every means. I am not sure why at the first chance they didn't allotted room 1305 to us when it was vacant. They were trying to push us to get settled and manage in whatever they are offering. Boss when you are taking the charges of resort category you can not provide services of road side inn. There is no question of compromising with the situation when we have booked the hotel 1 month prior to the trip. The condition of the rooms in 1st floor was horrible. The bathrooms had terribly suffered from proper ventilation. We have taken 2 triple rooms but noticed marked differences between the two (in interior, bathroom amenities, cabinets, beds) although they are charging same for both. If bathroom of 1 triple room has luxury bath fitting then the other one has cheap local fittings but the charges are same which is really ridiculous. (compare room 1125 and 1113). Air condition were not working properly for room no 1125. We had to call front desk several times to send someone for servicing. The worst of all we killed 2 jumbo sized cockroaches in room no 1110 which really surprised me. Good Damn did I payed Rs. 4200 to see the cockroaches flying like super heroes in midnight? This was simply unprofessional and unexpected...I felt like cheated. They simply failed to live up to the commitment they had done at the time of booking. When you are in vacation you would love to pamper yourself rather than taking tensions at every point. The good facts of the hotel are they have huge campus, a playground ,a swimming pool and is located quite far away from the madding crowd near Swargadwar. The breakfast served in the morning had good choices of continental, North Indian and South Indian foods. The restaurant staffs are well mannered and friendly. At the end of the day it is your room which will matter rather than the beautification of lawn and common spaces. Blue lily seriously lack on that part.

Room Tip: Do not book any rooms in 1st floor no matter how hard they push to sell it. Always prefer 3rd floor...

Hi It was a trip with my friends for the famous Rath Yatra ( Car Festival). Our terrible experience started with the location of the hotel then at the reception . They took more than 10-20 min to fill the forms n allocate rooms. Then the right side view and the bad smell is difficult to explain. Food quality was OK. Room service was not very good. Very inexperienced staff. Need to improve for their survival.. Thanks

After their failure to launch it as a premium service apartment for sale in Puri, the management's decision to change it into a hotel has worked wonders. The rooms are spacious by any standard. Though its a bit far, the property somehow manages to impress you. Public transport is very difficult to find at any given point of time. If you have reached the hotel in an auto its better to keep the auto drivers cell no with you. As with the rest of Puri this hotel also does not serve dinner after 10:30 pm. Food quality is just satisfactory but by the price they charge there is nothing left to complain. An addition of an extra pair of elevators is required. The rooms with a front view of the sea is the farthest form the elevator and trust me its quite a walk.
Overall they offer massive discounts up to 50%. So this makes it one of the better properties to stay and relax specially for honeymoon, family and destination wedding travelers.

Room Tip: Rooms close to the elevators offer the worst view of the sea.
