Neemrana centralized Reservations did a con job of promoting high end rooms while the lesser priced ones were available. We were told that only two rooms (the ones with highest tariff ) were vacant at the time of booking. On reaching the property, we realized that most of the rooms were not occupied. We were also informed that “The Gate... More

Bunglow on the beach is beautiful beyond comparison. Especially when you are a Danille steel fan, reading about centuries old mansions renovated and walking in expecting a piece of history...that is exactly what you get here. There is this eeriee something in the air, with all my imagination of all the people who lived there so many decades ago. The... More

This was my third trip to this property and everything was perfect as always. Great Staff, the pool and the general quiet vibe of Tranquebar is wonderful. Will surely return again soon. Love going there in the summer when one practically has to hotel to oneself.

Very friendly staff. Very nice property sea facing location. Food was good. Special thanks to Dinakaran and the Chef Senthil who made local flavor of sea food using the locally available varieties. It was wonderful. Try to book the corner rooms in first floor which has sea view in two sides. Bathroom needs some improvements.

This is something so charming and warm, that you can only expect in a place like Tranquebar. Colonial style, perfectly preserved, but added with modern comfort. Feels like home after a tiring journey. Staff is good and competent. Know what you want before you tel them. No alcohol license though. But that's not a problem at all.

Tharangampadi. The place strikes a chord the minute you open the big doors on to the porch and take upon the endless view of the sea. Give neemrana a quaint bungalow and it does what it does best - takes u back a century or two. We had taken Christianus septimus and the 2 adjacent rooms. Louvered doors open on... More

Great location directly at the beach. Close to a temple. Rooms provide an old atmosphere. You see plenty of wildlife like eagles, kites and fish in the surroundings. Even found turtle shells on the beach. Restaurant within the hotel is great and superb staff!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The restored Bungalow stands as a reminder of a Danish Admiral, Ove Gjedde, sent by the king of Denmark with two ships. They were well received by the Nayak ruler of Tanjore, and given this territory. Then Dansborg, the Fort of Tharangambadi – a solid example of Scandinavian military architecture was established to export pepper to Denmark. The oldest Lutheran church in India was built here in 1706.Today you can drive in through a beautiful gate of the majestic King Street, past Lutheran churches and grand bungalows of the Danish Governors’ and the British Collector’s residence. Re-live marine history; visit the temples of Kumbakonam and Tanjore. The town remains a glorious tribute to architecture from across the world.Tranquebar is reputed to have the thickest ozone layer in India which is ideal for relaxation as it rejuvenates and helps all those who visit prolong their life. Facing full east, The Bungalow on the Beach gives guests their own encounter with the sun and sea breeze. Time becomes irrelevant when you stand facing the sunrise: a 14th century Pandya temple on your left and a 17th century Danish fort to the right.Come taste ‘eternity’ in a stopover! ... more   less
