1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

let me warn u on t...dont even think of going here....the resort is run by a family...only 3 ppl are at ur service...very very poor...and no current throughout the day,the generator is switched on only in the night...the rooms are terrible but a bit clean...The road that leads to the resort is more than terrible....its an idiotic hotel..i dnt know for what he charges so much there...they say the swimming pool is the largest in tn but ts a garbage...useless...

they said they would offer me an ac room but even the fan was not working pply... when we asked the mngmt about this,they said u wont require an ac here...then for what the hell did they charge more for an ac room???and i am surprised that makeytrip advertises for them...horrible man!!!we stayed there jus for the night and left...it was a mood spoiler...it spoiled our holiday...we were so disappointed....useless management and useless service...good for nothing...
plz dont get cheated by the outlook or by "makemytrip.com"....USELESS resort

Room Tip: Dont take any room...useless

It is a Good Start Up venture. Good Settings-Nice Rooms, Total Privacy, Natural Seeting, Freedom to explore the Rural & Natural settings. These are big pluses provided you have been to the resort with mindset of getting basic facilities/personal attention.

You will be off place the moment you expect the services and hopla of 5 star resorts. It is great Option for great setting/facilities with basic services and low tariff. The location may be difficult to reach without guidance and prior information. Take Taxi 250-300 Rs, from Kanyakumari to reach the location. Night Travel would be issue without personal vehicle else Taxi/Auto are available with prior information.

Donot expect yourself to be doing To fro to Kanyakumari and back to Hotel. Do your activities in Kanyakumari and remian rooted at the resort enjoy the nature,. settings, quite time.

My bet is above average for the resort and a great change to routine Resorts Set Up ... Worth Try.....

Room Tip: Take Room Near Swimming pool.

Yes, it is down an unmade road and in the countryside. This is a marvellous, simple place to stay if you can enjoy looking at a huge hillside behind the resort and the peaceful surroundings. There is the kind, caring attention of the manager who asked us what sort of food we liked and then chose and served us excellent simple meals. Walks, bird watching, reading, resting and swimming in a large infinity pool with views all around gave us all we needed on site. Not far away is Suchindram with its fine temple and there is also a stonecutters village to explore.

Room Tip: the ones backing onto the hillside

Hi Guys, Please be aware of this resort if you want a pleasant stay for your holidays.
Book Two rooms with this resort though makemytrip.com 26th to 30th DEC 2011, we reach resort by 7:30 PM on 26th. And enquirer our booking at the reception., we got the room keys and we request them to take our bags to the room. we went to check in our room, my friend got a room without power, my room AC was not working, TV have Reliance Dish TV , but keep giving the message for re-charge voucher :-( , we tried to call reception from my room as we pick the phone and dial reception number got message ' please recharge ' we went to reception back and told all this problem.. the reply we got was ( 1 - light will come tomorrow today night you manage somehow, regarding TV and phone talk to our MD he will be here after 12 am. ) we were shock to this reply.. we force them to change my friend room as we have our kids and they are tire so please do so.. they manage another room but said tomorrow morning you need to vacate as its booked. MD came at 1 am his name is Raju Kumar , we told him all this issues, the reply we got from him was very surprising.. he said ' you have paid for the room forget about the other service inside the room, and regarding the room without light by tomorrow morning 8 am check it to that room and vacate the other one.. light will come .. listing this we were shock.. we said this is cheating and we will inform makemytrip... to that he said ' I will see to it how you go outside campus..." we were scared we came back to our room , called makemytrip and inform them all this .. also i have to call my Company security for help.. Thanks God working in large MNC helps.. some how we checkout very next day and check in to other HOTEL..
What i found is there is no management , no service, this resort is run by one family couple and there small small kids.. Guys PLEASE be carefull and think 4 time before you book this resort..

Room Tip: This resort have only 11 cottages, WORST don't ever choose this resort.. or else you will screw...

The setup of the hotel is nice and so is Mr. Raju the owner of the property. Almost everything else was very disappointing. The services reminded us of government guest houses. The manager was absolutely ridiculous and hapless!

We booked two rooms at this place through makemytrip almost a week before our travel. After booking the place, we gave a call to both makemytrip and the resort to make sure that it is confirmed. Both of them confirmed the booking.

During our trip, we gave them a call on our way from Kovalam beach to Kanyakumari for driving directions and that's when they told us we don't have a booking. We were in the middle of no where and they denied us the rooms. We called makemytrip and they told us that we have the booking and its already confirmed with the resort. We are not sure whose fault it is but it looked like the resort sold the rooms to someone else for higher price as it was a peak holiday season. We were stranded on the highway and had to be on call with makemytrip for more than 3 hours to get rooms booked at another hotel.

It was a very bad and scary experience. It's really bad on their part to deny the room in the last minute after having confirmed the booking a few days earlier itself.

Even though there are many draw backs about the resort the efforts of Mr.Raju should be appreciated in developing such a resort idea in this area.
To me its a heaven for people in this south side. I think that this would be the first and only resort near kanyakumari, tuticorin and trinelveli.
The area is too far and remote i accept but only that gives a calm place to stay.Such a resort cannot be in the heart of the city.
There is some lack of Staff and Maintenance but not that much bad for the price he offers.
In future for sure when staffs are settled down sure Raju will provide better service.
Anyway i have stayed thrice with my family we enjoyed the rooms and the pool.
It was really a very calm place to relax.
We all liked it will also repeat often.

Room Tip: Choose the cottages . Standard rooms are really too small.
