Hotel Promenade is a Hidesign initiative - modern amenities, airy restaurant, good interiors, open air restaurant service, decent bar, friendly service, good food.
Rooms: We had taken a Deluxe Superior room which was as good as any 4star deluxe room. All the rooms have a sea view but the Deluxe rooms have the swimming pool in front of the balcony and trees covering the sea view. The suites are much more elgant with a long glass front facing the sea and no swimming pool in front- much better view.
Location - right at the beach road. Not a sandy beach...but it has a long walkway...like the Marine Drive in Mumbai (not as busy though). Its 45min away from the Auroville. There is a small Aurobindo Ashram close to the hotel.
There is a nice coffee shop which has been there since ages and runs 24X7 - Great coffee and cakes. They serve breakfast as well.
We had been there during rainy season - so tariff was low but we could not enjoy the beach side walk too much 'coz of the rains.More
