It is a heritage hotel and very well kept. None of the rooms are same, very comfortable, spacious and takes care of all your needs. We felt like a special guest there and I am sure all visitors will feel like the same. Hotel has a very pleasant feeling with inner compounds, gardens, roof gardens, and cool breeze from everywhere. The service was great and staff was very courteous. It had a less staff but you will feel like you are living with a family. My 2 year old son also liked the hotel within minutes of entering it. Hotel staff guided us for all out tour and made very reasonable arrangements for our trips. Everyday after once we return to hotel tired, we get the comfort which is needed. We will go again there and cherish our memories again and will build more memories.”

It certainly has a rustic charm about the place overlooking an immaculate, picturesque beach setting. The service is incredible, led by the wonderful Vinod. We went for the all inclusive option and had amazing food (not ill once), for breakfast, lunch and dinner. As it is the low season, there was a hint of damp and the waves were strong so we didn't venture too far out into the sea.”

The ghats and its temples resounding with chants, the sun rise and sun setting on the mighty river is mesmerising. The hotel itself has a very lived in, warm feel with the staff being mostly locals. The head of the staff is a local lady who has been with the family for years. The food is fresh and much is sourced from their own kitchen gardens in the fort.

The perfect place for lovers of heritage looking for peace and serenity.”
