This property is located just next to the beach. A big plus. Good value for money. Don't expect water sports or anything. Travel to Murudeshwara for such fun. Food is good but bit expensive. The beauty of sunset is excellent. Nice place for friends but not for family.
Location is excellent as it is a private beach resort. Beach is clean with rocks here and there to sit on it and view sunset. Rooms are not very good but manageable. Service is excellent. Food is most delicious especially traditionally prepared uddin vadas. Staff is friendly. Boat ride arranged from resort was awesome. Lucky to see a dolphin family in deep waters. Enjoyed to see an Island with crabs and sea urchins on it. Staff showed us sea urchins holding in their hands. We saw zebra fish and other fish in the crystal clear waters near the Island and collect the big size sea shells. You can visit nearby gangolli port and maravanthe beach. Very good resort for a reasonable budget.
I have heard and read so many review about this place that I had some imagination about the place and it was nothing close to it, so I decided to write a review that should take you close to reality Firstly, its not in Updupi, its about 55km from Udupi, and around 8 Km from a place called Kundapura Now, lets start with road to reach this place. I will talk about road from Udupi to resort only, road is fairly good, its a NH and process of widening it is also going on, so somewhere you will get 4 lanes and somewhere you will get 2 lanes, but they will not trouble you. The only thing which might be disappointing will be last. 5km which is a village road, a narrow one. Trust me. 5km won't make much difference How resort looks ?. Its a restricted place, so concrete structures are not allowed. Almost entirely the resort is built with red stone kind of structure which you will see in most of pictures. I felt its not that well maintained, or they kept it like that to give you feel of village but long grass here and there pretty bad and garden should have been maintained much better. I felt for long time they had not even looked at garden Rooms, generally when you talk about resort these days you expect outside it will be hut but inside the bed and bathroom will be luxurious. The bed they provided was too basic, these day if you book a room for 1000 Rs you will get that bed. What you get in room, an old wooden wardrobe. You will get a very basic bathroom with just one Rs. 5 medimix soap. To me they said A/C isn't working so I had to manage with just a fan having said all this, what you will like. Its a pretty isolated place, so calm and serene. The moment you enter the resort you will hear the sound of waves The best part is, you have beach right in front of you always. Its like a private beach, the count of people playing in the beach will be 10 at max any point of time in the day and all of them would be from your resort only. Since, less number of people, so its very clean, you can have fun with your family/friends all the time Food, the complementary breakfast was very good, you have choices, bread toast, idly, Vada, sambar, puri-sabzi, and corn flakes, along with tea/coffee. One good thing, they keep a container of tea/coffee at reception as early as 7. 15 AM, so if you are lover of morning tea like me, you can enjoy the morning tea with a difference by having it while sitting at beach. They have a small menu, and for veggies that gets even smaller. But whatever I ordered out of that I liked it. So, I appreciate the food quality and taste. Avoid ice cream but eat Gulab jamun. I ordered lime soda and it was fantastic they always discourage room service. Also, I would recommend having food in dinning area which is a open wooden shed and hardly 100mts from beach, so again can hear sound of beach Forgot to mention they don't have a inter-com. Anytime you need something you have to look around for a staff member. Amenities, nothing and absolutely nothing. They have boating etc but all paid. Bathroom and room, though are very basic but clean. I strongly believe that they should reduce the price. I stayed with my wife, so if the private beach feeling wasn't there I would have rated it 1 star in all the categories except food. Recommendation, if as a group you are going, for a mixed gender group, very much fun but for only guys not so much.
The staff of the hotel were friendly with their customers. The resorts rooms were big and spacious with all amenities. The food offered by them was delicious and tasty. The surroundings of the hotel was neat and clean. The services offered by them were good.
The hotel is good. I had stayed here with my friends. The hotel staff and food is good. The property and the rooms are clean and neat. Overall a pleasant stay. Would recommend this hotel for a business stay. The reception and staff are very helpful and courteous.
We were a group of 5-6 families and we went there for a leisure holiday Though there were no star rated facilities the resort is located on a very beautiful and clean beach, that makes up for any lack of amenities The rooms were quite good and the prices were reasonable. The food they served was also quite nice The resort offers several adventurous activity including snorkelling, though one will have to go to Murdeshwar which is around 90 km from there. But the experience is worth the pain The place is really nice, calm and is isolated. If I would to go this place again I would like to do snorkelling again and other activities as well I will recommend this resort to beach lovers.
I had a good experience in this resort. I visited there for roaming around in 2013. I stayed there for 3 days. I did not face any problem in reaching the hotel. Pick-up and drop facility was not provided by the hotel people. I travelled there by my own. Location wise, it was in interior. Appearance of the hotel was good. Food service was not good there otherwise everything was nice in this hotel. Staff people were okay but services were late there. No problem in check-in and check-out time. Room was of old type. Interiors were not good there. Room was average in size. No activity was there. Hotel was located very near to the beach. Beach view was visible from the room. Sunrise and sunset view was also available from there. Room's cleanliness was okay-okay, not that great. They should give more varieties in food and improve their services. Car parking should also provide by them. It is not good for families because it is not safe because of jungle area. Destination is average. Location of the hotel was excellent. Look wise, it was average. Check-in and check-out and booking procedure was excellent. Services were average. Room was also average. Food and drink was below average. Drink was not available there.
Resort location was superb, on beach. Outside look of the resort was average but interior was perfect. Food was available in the resort with veg and non-veg category but I had veg food, it was fantastic. My experience was nice good in this hotel. Beautiful view was visible from the room. I hired two rooms there that was average compare to facility. I went there with my friend and my dog also in August month. They did not provide any activities. Karnataka as a destination was lovely place for outing. Booking and font office people were decent. Overall, services were acceptable. They did provide welcome drink.
It was a nice hotel. I was able to reach the hotel comfortably without any problem. I travelled by car. Appearance of the hotel was okay. It was located near to the sea. Behaviour of the staff was good. All amenities like TV, geyser, refrigerator, etc were present in the room and they were in working condition. No view was there. Food was good. Swimming pool, gym, nothing was there. No arrangement was there for sightseeing trip. I visited there with my friends in October 2012. I will recommend this hotel to other travelers for 2 to 3 days. Some things were not maintained there. There was no delay in check-in and check-out.
This hotel is located in one of the best places in Karnataka, where the sea meets the river, on the highway you can find the Sea on one side and river on the other side. It has a private beach of its own which provides you very good view and time of your own. The food is of average quality and not good service and staff are not really co-operative.
