I would start by saying this place is little costly stay. You will have no complains with the comfort, view, stay, overall a well maintained hotel/resort. The rooms are bit smaller. You should not stay here for a single night, at least 2 nights to enjoy the place in wholesome. You can have your dinner near swimming pool side with candle light. The place is quite romantic. The pool is neat and well maintained. One of the best above average hotel/resort in Puri. To reach the beach you just have to cross the road, it's neat, and hotel people would be there to assist you. Nice place to spend couple of days if your budget is high.

This was my first visit to Puri.

The hotel is expensive but no complaints, nice rooms, good food. The rooms are are that of any standard business hotel. Its well maintained. Beach is walk able. Well maintained swimming pool, but when you have the beach who goes swimming in a pool.

We had hired a cab for the whole trip, it was good as you get rid of all the travel hassles. orissataxiservices provided the cab, they are listed on the net.

Place to visit
1. Jaggannath temple - 'The lazy darshan', we went to the temple after 10.30 pm. We drove the car right upto the temple. During the day you cannot do the same as the road is blocked.
One thing you cant miss is the flag hoisting, it happens during the evening when a temple priest will climb the temple wall from outside and hoist the flags he carries at the top.

2. chillka lake - If you are lucky may find some dolphins. But the boat ride is good.

3. Sun temple - the obvious. Do take a guided tour as you will get to know a lot of intricate details. Beware of touts, just in front of the temple entrance you will find govt authorized guides with proper ID card, you can hire them.

Place to eat - Must eat
'The chung wah' - It is a chinese restaurant in the hotel Lee Garden (VIP road). Cannot afford to miss the food here. The place is bit shabby but dont go by the looks. One of the best chinese in one the most unexpected places. Dont be late sometime they run out of food after 9.30 pm. Still have salivating thoughts.

Hope the info is helpful to someone.

Had a fairly good experience during our stay. It takes a while to get the waiters attention at times. The dinner at the sprawling lawn beside the pool is really nice . The dining hall is really good decor wise.
The biggest advantage I guess is its location. But for the price... the customer service is a bit lacking. Overall not a bad experience though.

Room Tip: rooms facing the beach are really nice during night time you could actually hear the waves lashing a...

The hotel is located at the other side of the crowded part of Pri beach (Swargdwar). I stayed here with my family when we came to visit the Jaggannath Puri temple. It turned out to be a really nice hotel - very comfortable with a great poolside that overlooked the Puri beach. The room service was nice. Their food was excellent. The swimming pool and garden is amazing. The distance to Puri temple is not much and Sea is bang opposite to the hotel.

Room Tip: Try to get room at ground floor.

Went to Coco Palms for Dinner on 1st Jan. When you go to a hotel like this, you automatically have high expectations. But, we were unsatisfied. The service was terrible, we had to call the waiter every time to serve water. It took too much time for the food to come. The taste was also not upto the mark. Overall a bad experience.

This was my second visit to Coco Palms after four years and it was just as nice as I remembered it. A big plus point of the hotel was that it was a little away from the popular part of the beach with its multitude of hotels and crowd so the beach in front of the hotel is quiet.
The rooms are clean but cluttered; they should do away with the TV cabinet,it makes the room too cramped and the TV being a flat screened one doesn't take up a lot of space by itself. The bathrooms are small but then again, clean and lots of hot water in the shower. I don't remember a tea/coffee maker in my earlier stay, it's there now.
The service is good, the staff are helpful, smiling and eager to please. They have only one restaurant but the food is excellent.
The pool looks gorgeous, blue and sparkling and Ramesh is the hotel masseur who gives a wonderful massage by the poolside.
The beach isn't private but they have have thatched shades for the hotel guests and the hotel staff happily drag out chairs so that you can sit and view the sea or read a book in peace.
I had mainly gone for Lord Jaggannath darshan and the hotel arranged for a guide who ensured I had a smooth darshan and could offer puja.
I would definitely stay here again the next time I visit Puri.

Room Tip: Ask for a first floor room, they all are sea facing. The hotel has two floors only but the ground fl...
