“Day Picnic at sterling Resorts, Puri”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We had a day picnic at sterling resorts, golden sands Puri, on 09th Dec 12 with 80 members of our company. The ambiance of the resort was marvelous and all the arrangements were excellent. Our staff members enjoyed the facilities for the day up to the optimum. The cooperation of the staffs and the resorts management was exemplary.

We had a Marriage booking of 70 rooms from 5th December, '12 Morning to 6th December, '12 evening. They had given us the total Rooms break-up in advance and accordingly everything was planned but at the time of alloting the Rooms, they changed more than 50 % of the Room nos. initially given which created a havoc when the guests arrived. Added to that, they could give us only 70 % of the Rooms on the 5th Morning, 15% room keys were handed over by late afternoon & balance we dont know when were ready but they claim they had offered in the evening. Our guests arrived at 7 a.m. in morning , and they were still alloting the rooms by evening???? Next day(6th Dec.), they starting chasing us to vacant the rooms in the morning whereas we had booking till evening. As per my idea, very cleverly, they had charged us for the rooms till evening and also had booked for the same period for some other outside guests and made a mess of our marriage program. Total infrastructure is in bad shape along with pathetic room conditions ( more than 50%). Overall, it was a nightmare of 2 days which somehow came to an end. The Top management should look into this immediately. Lot to write but I dont know whether it is worth so shall stop here.

Living on the west Coast and swimming in the Arabian sea,I was not knowing what to expect. The experience was more than satisfying. The Puri beach is comparable to the best beaches in the bay of Bengal.Swimming in the sea here during the best time of the year is an out of the world experience.
Staying in sterling golden sands was a good experience. The buffet breakfast and dinner are just what one looks forward to in the chill weather. The food is so tasty that guests cannot resist stuffing themselves.The spa attendents can give you the best massage one ever had.Located a little off the main beach area, transport and their cost needs to be more guest friendly.
So next time one wants a beach holidaytake a trip to the east Coast at Puri.

It was awesome experience during my sister's marriage (23 to 25th Nov 2012). My entire guests n relatives enjoyed the resort. Each and every staff members were very keen to provide a very good hospitality. All arrangements for the marriage function was as per discussion earlier and was excellent. Now the most important is food quality which is beyond our expectation , Entire three days we all have enjoyed the food. Overall It will be always a memorable marriage function at this resort. Thanks to all staff members and esp Mr. Tarun Goswami who was always there to provide full cooperation and

I have to repeat, there is no better resort in Puri. The service is top grade. Each and every staff member is trained to assist, and assist they do. Every detail is considered and answered, most often without your being aware of it. It just happens, and it makes your stay very relaxing. Fantastic property and awesome experience.....Large rooms with out of the world service and mouth watering foods......Pool was awesome......One of the best properties i have ever been to ...Out of the world.... Basically attractive to the business traveler large family groups, also for couple who're newly married were also seen frequenting the hotel ahead of the holiday season.

Last but not the least I have to mention one name over here that’s “Ranjeet Nanda (Sr. Executive Reservation)" who is like your friend like brother I mean he is damn co-operative like anything. I mailed him like hell for every details and he replied each and every mail even if it’s only for 2 words.

This is my 3rd visit to this place in last one year & i really enjoyed a lot and thought that i should share my experience wit u all:
1st time i visited with my 7 old school friends for 2 days, and we really enjoyed a lot that time and the facility provided by them was excellent. Like they arranged for us camp fire etc,etc.
2nd time i visited with my 3 other friends for 1 days.for just taking small break and time also we enjoyed a lot.
3rd time recently before few days with my and sister family and taken a small 1 day break there. And we really enjoyed a lot.
Overall the resort has big campus with every arrangements. If you want to take break from your busy hectic days and want to spend some time for yourself and wanna to spend some good time with family & near-dear one, then this is one of the best place.This place is not over crowded like other places in puri so you will enjoy a lot.
The place is situated in front of sea beach and beside River. So some time it's difficult to reach beach due to some time river direction change where its join the sea. But they had made facility to reach there like they made temporary bridge to reach there or you can can cross by boat. So you can take charm of boating too. The swimming pool is beautiful,huge and clean.also there is small swimming pool for kids.
The building is beautiful.The rooms are well planed and beautiful.My favorite room is twin apartment room with 2 bedroom,2 bathroom,kitchen, dinning room and drawing room.
If you want to cook yourself then every arrangements are there or you can enjoy there food. Always there are many varieties of dishes but i suggest you that you take food package including with your room so you can get good discount price.And overall the cost is also cheap compare to other resort there.
Anyway I suggest you that if you want to visit puri and spend some good time with near & dear one then this place is one of the best.It's little far from station & temple, but i think very less than this days we are traveling to office from our residence.Ha!ha!
Anyway enjoy your trip.

Room Tip: Take twin room if you are 4 adults with food package included

The property is in an isolated corner and quite difficult to reach. Forget the place if you are depending on autos or public transport. Rooms are in bad shape and needs lots of repair or refurbishment. Food is too expensive and if you don't want to travel few kms for food, you have to pay a lot for what they provide. Service is good but not worth the money you pay.

There is a pool but maintenance is bad and due to some construction work, the change rooms are pathetic and dirty.
