Holiday Resort Hotel, Puri
Chakaratitha Road Puri
We have been going to the Holiday Resort, Puri for the past 3 years now. It is the highlight of our trip as we just want a great place to unwind, right on the beach, staying in beautiful self sufficient cottages and to top it all , amazing food choices. The beach is not a private beach, but the hotel does take care to keep it clean and even has measures for safety during the night And the best bit is the Price, which is not very expensive compared to the other starred resorts/hotel
Excellent! In first see view from room it was nice & soothing for mind. Overall peaceful ambience and cordial. But, the approach path to the sea (updown & stairs) is not very comfortable & easy particularly for aged persons. During rain it is not possible to go to inhouse restaurant also. Then we had to depend on room service only. Reception lobby and the straight path to the sea from reception can be modified and decorated further. Sitting arrangement in sea beach can be done like garden. Overall stay at hotel is nice and should be recommended for others.
Hotel was located near to the beach and it was very good location. Interior and exterior look of the hotel was gorgeous. I faced no problem during check-in and check-out facility. Behaviour of the staff members was fine. Room was spacious, neat and tidy. I took my food inside the hotel and quality and taste of the food was very nice. Swimming pool was available in the hotel. TV, AC, geyser and other necessity items were present in the room. Puri place is excellent destination for outing. Services were on fast and on time. It was a relaxation trip with my friends in February 2014. Parking space was available in the hotel. I travelled there by own car. I will recommend this hotel for travellers. Hotel was value for money.
Hotel was absolutely beautiful hotel. You can sea view from hotel rooms. Fully AC rooms were there. Hotel was located at about 2-3 km distance from temple but very close to sea beach. Hotel location was good. Appearance of the hotel was excellent. Room's rent was starting from Rs. 2500. I made my booking online with the hotel. Staff behaviour was very co-operative. I had no problem during check-in and check-out facility. They provided 20-22 varieties of food in this hotel. Whatever we ordered, we got that immediately. Rooms were neat and spacious. Sea facing rooms were there. They provided cab facility for sightseeing but they charged extra. Food was delicious. Sea food was available in the hotel. Activities were good in this hotel. I went there with my family in the month of July 2014 and I was relaxing trip.
Every year we plan a family get-together and this year we planned for Puri. Earlier trips were made to the much crowded and not much appreciated crowded beach in front of Puri Hotel. Our search for a secluded beach led us to Hotel Holiday Resort (More of a hotel than a resort!). Our main criteria was to have a somewhat secluded beach at a reasonable cost. I did online booking and had to transfer money online to their account. Though it was not much of a fuss, still credit card booking would have been better appreciated. I had booked 3 double rooms (and on phone told them my preference for first floor rooms), but on reaching there we were first given two 4 bedded rooms on second floor and had to wait for almost an hour for the third room which was a double bed room on first floor. Here, I must compare these rooms as the 4-bedded rooms were cramped, with very old furniture. The bathroom was ok for the price of the rooms. The 2-bedded room was a complete contrast! Having sat in the 4-bedded room for an hour we were pleasantly surprised by the room as it was the same size as the 4-bed rooms, but much more spacious and was bright and cheerful. Since we had to stay for only one night and it was the holi weekend we did not bother much about the rooms, but it would have been great of the management to provide the double rooms to us since it was booked since one month. We did not call anything at room but went to their restaurant, The Gajapati, which has a very good ambiance (better than Aquarium, Mayfair) with lots of swords and has a charmingly antique flavour to it. The food does not match up to the ambience, but is nothing to complain about. The best thing about the hotel is that you do not have to cross a road to get to the beach. They have a path up to the beach which goes through a decently maintained garden. The beach is nice and clean and we had a frolicking time there. We returned to our room in the evening and wanting to have a nice warm shower I realized they do not have running hot water! Its available from 7 to 11 in the morning! Strange for a hotel on the beach! The room service person told he would get hot water in the bucket...thanks..but no thanks!
