Posted 26 May, 2006

This is my second visit to this resort. The resort is very well maintained (in spite of the Tsunami in 2004) and all the cottages have very good facilities.The house keeping is excellent. The bathrooms even in the standard cottages are done-up very well and maintained well. All rooms have the latest flat screen TV and a minibar. The service is discreet , very friendly and quite prompt. The leisure activities are minimal, but the atmosphere here is to relax and unwind. The swimming pool is very well maintained and the there is an abundant supply of beach towels. There is also a well maintained tennis court for those active types. There is a restaurant attached to the swimming pool where the prices are rather exhorbitant. The main restaurant (partly open air which in summer can be pretty hot) has a nice resort ambience and the staff are friendly and helpful. The menu is rather short and runs more towards non-vegetarians, but many dishes are available on order that may not be listed in the menu. Prices are a bit on the higher side for certain types of dishes. The quality and taste are good and portions are standard. Overall I would rate it as good value for money. The resort also has other standard facilities like travel desk, internet browsing centre, massage, shopping etc.

I stayed in this resort for 3 days over weekend. I stayed in beach facing deluxe cottage. Best part of my stay at this resort is the warmth and courtesy shown by the staff when we asked for something. Service is too good. We had one year son with us and staff were very supportive and responsive to needs of a baby. They provided baby food too. Overall layout and ambiance of resort is good. It\'s very well maintained. Food is decent. Beach is maintained well and security guards near beach are attentive and supportive.

Posted 13 Jun, 2011

Hi, I have booked 'Summer package' for 2n&3d and Friday evening we reached the resort. I felt good at reception the way they have welcomed us. and gave a very good cottage to us. During the stay the hospitality was too good. We met the owner Bose Ramalinghm. people call him as 'Bose' He is very kind down to earth person and nice person i have never seen. He arranged a special room when we are suppose to checkout at 12:00pm on Sunday because we have planned to leave the resort 6:00PM without a single Rs charge for extra time.and coming to resort it is in good location very silent and peaceful place. And the private beach part is the one good part here. Very cleaned maintained. And all the staff are very good and always kind. I visited so many resort but this time somehow i liked my entire 3 days stay here. undoubtedly If I want to visit again I will choose the same resort. Finally wish you all the best for Bose and staff. Regards Narendra and krupa

Posted 10 Aug, 2010

Choosing a destination such as Mahabalipuram for a weekend was an easy one since we live in Pondicherry though it took us more than two weeks to plan it. The whole experience cannot be aptly described without the picturesque ECR highway which set the tone for the trip, although my wife was constantly cribbing about nausea during the two hour ride as my driver was too excited to make us reach in time. We were greeted to a warm welcome by the hotel staff and quickly shifted to the room. The standard cottage was quite spacious with a good bathroom and my kid was going nuts over the huge bed. we straight away made our way to the beach and it was delightful to find a beach side cafe along with huts and hammocks (dont even think about anything like that in Pondicherry).....had a gala time competing with my son in catching crabs (which my son would easily win) and at the poolside where he was eying 3-4 year old foreign girls. My wife and I spent some quality time together throughout the trip, walking through the resort\'s excellent walkaways, getting drunk (with my better half vomiting) and just enjoying each others company. We would definitely like to come back again and recommend the resort to anyone who is planning a vacation to Mahabalipuram
