Right on the ocean. Beach was beautiful - nice for walking and watching the sunrise. Pool very nice. Good breakfast and very nice cook who actually made us ras malai on request. Comfortable beds and nice bathroom. The staff worked very hard on resolving the problems we encountered.
1) We arrived late in the evening at Chennai Airport and the Uber to the hotel - which should have taken an hour - took 2,5 hours because the location on booking.com is totally incorrect. (Still!!!) 2) Urgently needed internet to do some work but there was no signal. The staff worked hard to resolve it but all in all we lost a lot of time. 3) For some reason the outlets would not hold our plugs. This was resolved by giving us an extension cord. 4) After we had checked out suddenly none of our credit cards worked. Therefore had to take the hotel shuttle which cost an arm and a leg and we ran out of cash.
All is good
Menu card food price very expensive
beach is great with easy access and great walks
the pre recorded western tapes played in the restaurant are tired
Spacious rooms, beach front, private beach
Bit costly- both stay and food
Everything about this resort is good - location, good, service, ambience etc etc. Timings of the facility usage is apt - swimming, beach, food orders at the beach etc etc.
Cost is a bit on the higher side. Also, they must have an option to extend the stay for an additional day or two - which they did not honour - understandably so, as they had their property fully booked.
