We arrived here for a three day stay in April. We picked this resort on account of various reviews on-line which mentioned that, this was a resort where you could see and hear the waves all through the day. Needless to say we were not disappointed at all.

As you enter the resort, what catches your breath is the beautiful expanse of the Arabian sea down below the resort. The resort is built at various levels on the hill, with the room at the lower levels. The reception is very small and is attached to an outdoor restaurant that overlooks the pool and the sea. The manager is quite quick, though not very friendly. However, the rest of the staff is very helpful and hospitable.

After a quick check-in, we entered our rooms. These are absolutely beautiful. We got the ones facing the sea, with a small balcony. The rooms are very clean and big. The double bed is quite huge that we did not need an extra bed for our child in the room. The room is equipped with a large TV and coffee maker. The bathroom is quite big and is open with a glass partition. Though the partition is covered a shower curtain. The toiletries are of a certain quality and are in plenty.

The pool in the resort is quite well maintained and beautiful. There are sun decks kept which are amazing to sit on, especially at night when you want to just lie down under the clear Gokarna skies and enjoy the cool breeze. There is a yoga pavilion as well in the resort. There are no spa facilities here. However, very close to the resort is an Ayurvedic treatment centre which gives some really good spa services.

The food in the restaurant is not really up-to the mark. It is very basic and the breakfast spread quite minimal. We are given to understand that, their regular cook had just quit and hence, they were short on the staff in the kitchen. However, the staff is quite helpful and even offered, to go to the town to get us some good food.

Kudle beach is at the foothill of the same resort. However, the approach to the same requires you to trek down from outside the resort. However, this is not really too much of a bother, unless you have difficulty in climbing or getting down. In which case, even the resort can be a big strain on you as you have to keep climbing up and down the resort to even get to your room. Hence, I would not recommend this for the aged or for people who cannot move around too much.

The closest restaurants or eat-outs are the shacks on the beach. The town is around 4 km if you go by your own car. However, if you opt to take an auto, it is just a km away. Since the short cut is an extremely narrow road, you will need to either walk or take an auto through this km long to the town or the Gokarna beach. The resort guys are quite helpful in pointing the same out to us and arranging for an auto to take us there and bring us back. The auto guy charged us Rs. 100 one way.

On the whole, the stay is really comfortable and nice. I would definitely recommend this resort for a family or friends or couples. The place has an amazing charm and is really beautiful. And yes, I too, would like to go back.

Amazing infrastructure but horrible food. Awesome rooms and pool. Nice location and it was good value for money. We went there when the construction was still going on. Food was horrible, very oily and tasteless. You would rather carry some bread and butter.

I am 3 hours away from this not so famous but extremely brilliant holiday destination. I and my group of friends had a sudden plan to explore this place which was on a list of 15 must visit places in India, this one being closest was the one we hit first on the list. The western coast at its best is how I would describe it. We all know about Goa, the carnivals and everything but over the time it has really transformed into a hustling state and lost its charm and Gokarna on the other hand is the place for people who want a holiday to go on and do nothing absolutely do nothing. To add a cherry on top the warm welcome extended by this hotel in particular was just amazing. The staff chooses to more of a host than a business professional, their amazing service just wins you over though. The rooms are not the ones to achieve a star rating but then it is for people who want to enjoy nature a bit closely. The hospitality is what makes it a good place to choose amongst other hotels. The in-hotel facilities aren't too many but the ones that are on the list are totally worth the try.

It was an awesome & wonderful experience in this resort. Service and catering was excellent. Maintenance of resort was too good, especially view and location were super. The people here are nice guide and guided us regarding beach and surrounding places. Coming to the accommodation, AC room was very good and window view beach was beautiful and food also we can enjoy a lot. Overall, this resort is very nice, especially hotel staff, housekeeping response was awesome, totally super. I had been their on 2nd Nov, 2014. Next I'm planning for May 1st and 2nd 2015. Kudle beach view resort is a beautiful place, 100% worth staying.

Excellent place to chill out!! Kudle Resort is just above the Kudle Beach excellent location to hang-out. Though the price are bit on the higher end it's worth just for the location and food. Would advice to call up the management in advance an book the room as availability of the same is a major concern as half the time all the room are booked by visiting foreign nationals.

Enjoy peace and do remember to visit the SHIVA cave on front of the resort!
