Toshali Sands
Ranked #7 of 81 Hotels in Puri
Reviewed October 26, 2013

strategically located at a place which is free from crowd.... yet gives a fantastic exposure to beach, greenery and even wildlife. One can sight spotted deers freely roaming in the nearby jungle. The trip to nearby places like Konark is nearer from this resort.

The cottages are well designed, giving private balcony for all and beautiful sight of palm trees, well groomed green lawn and flower plants.

Restaurant is excellent coupled with responsive service.

A bit overpriced but good value for money...

Room Tip: Cottages are preferable rather than rooms.

Toshali Sands was,i believe,the first in Eastern India to bring in the resort concept.I went there after ages and it's still so prim and proper!We stayed in a cottage..which was a great idea-with a small sitting area outside and a mini-garden.Check-in was swift and warm.On check-in,the AC in the cottage malfunctioned.Within 5 mins,2 maintainence staff were attending to it in all earnest.When a solution was not apparent,they swiftly changed us to another cottage.Had a good time at the swimming pool.Food was decent.However,i'd like to mention one thing i didnt like-this was the time when news came in that a cyclone was brewing up and heading to the Puri and adjoining coast.We decided to check out a day earlier than planned.Though they agreed with some reluctance-i did find it surprising that instead of informing all guests of a potential emergency-they were actually trying to retain guests-even called in a DJ for the night before the cyclone hit-so that checked in guests would be retained.Now,if i were the owner of a responsible resort-i'd not care of business loss(which could be made up eventually) and be more worried about the potential human loss that could have happened,the way things were turning up.That said,a cyclone is a rarity.One cannot deny that in normal circumstances,this is still an excellent resort,with very good service.

I must say Its a great Resort with Pool, large gardens, laws, message & spa........Food quality is very Good. Its a Great place to be there.

ONLY 1 POINT KNOCKS -Over priced when this resort is far far from the beach, But they provide compl pickup n drop to a nearby private beach.!!

Otherwise its a great resort

Room Tip: Take Cottage to Spoil yrself, But it a point its far from the city n swargadwar beach.

Located strategically between Puri and Bhubaneshwar,Toshali Sands Resort truly strives to cater ethnicity to it's valued customers in the most modern manner.It's sprawling extent,exquisitely landscaped grounds,cozy cottages loaded with the most modern amenities,rejuvenating sauna,pool,massage,gym,indoor & outdoor games is a near complete feast.The platter is complete with Toshali's pristine,private,virgin Balukhanda Beach.The approach to the beach is breathtaking-ripping right through the heart of a deer sanctuary.Courtesy,cleanliness,cooperation of staff is worth mentioning.Thorns are two in this rosy review:1.Food-couldn't match the expectation at all.2.Overpriced tariff.

If you are going to Puri for a relaxed sea-side vacation, Toshali Sands is an excellent choice. The property itself gives you a choice of semi-detached cottages as well as room-blocks spread out with some lush well-maintained greenery. The central facilities of a swimming pool, bar, restaurant etc. are quite adequate. A pleasant surprise was the Ayurvedic treatment center where both of us got some real relaxing body massage from well-trained staff. The restaurant staff were extra helpful and indulged us with the special requests that we made, and the housekeeping, laundry were in good order during our 4-night stay.

The surprise package is the few-kilometers-long pristine beach, though a little distance away across a protected forest. You could spend many hours here in relative solitude and quiet and enjoy the sea as best as one can. Unfortunately, there are signs of littering now (including dangerous broken bottles) which I am sure is in the interest of the hotel to manage better with some little extra effort.

Puri is a busy town now and as an overseas tourist, it is worth visiting the neighborhood of the famed Lord Jagganath Temple, even though you may not be allowed inside, for the shops, textiles and roadside activities.

We had four enjoyable days, including an excursion to Chilika Lake, which has rather minimal basic facilities, though once again, a lovely beach at the end.

Room Tip: Cottages near the end of the property.

I planned my marriage at Toshali resort, Ratnagiri. As it's close to my place and also not so much tourists at any point of the Year. So i got a very good price for the bulk booking and the we agreed on the menu and prices per plate. But they suddenly increased the total price by three fold and it's really unrealistic prices, You can imagine they were charging two times the money for the triple occupancy over double occupancy. This last minute change though created lot of problem for me, But i never understood how people can be so stupid of loosing so much business because of their greed and stupidity.

I will never recommend this Resort.

The service and the ambience of the resort is really good. However, the only concern is that the location is out of the city (away from major tourist attractions). Though, there are bus services made available from the resort authorities, one needs to abide by the bus timings to tour the city. Folks who want to just lay back and enjoy with not much sight seeing in Puri have definitely got to chose this Resort!!
