The guest house is set in the middle of a peaceful and beautiful garden. Lovely to wake up to all that greenery and birdsong. The rooms are spacious with a lovely balcony facing the garden. The AC works like a dream and the staff were kind enough to provide a blanket when requested. The drainage wasn't working well in the...

The setting is quaint.. a big green mansion which serves as a guesthouse, with a restaurant and a vast garden with exotic plants. We dropped in for a meal and came away impressed. The food was scrumptious and cheap too. Stick to curry rice which is served with vegetables and dhal. Order for fried prawns and you won't be disappointed....

We came just for dinner, and it appeared as if the restaurant was about to close. However they kindly told us they'd be happy to have us if we didn't mind waiting. The food was excellent, some of the best pittu I've had, and delicious curries. The service is fantastic. Will definitely return!

The Guest House is situated away from the main road and therefore very quiet and restful. It is surrounded by a spacious garden of trees and flowering plants and therefore has many bird visitors. There are also ample parking spaces for vehicles. For sun and sea enthusiasts, the famous beaches of Passikudah with their collection of restaurants and specialist hot...

This guest house with 12 bedrooms is excellent value for money, the rooms all have a/c and fan with hot water in the bathrooms. There is ample parking if you use your own transport and a very good room for your driver (which is free) or the owner will arrange for you to be collected at the railway station. The...

Clean quiet & spacious room, lovely view of the garden. Short walk or tuk tuk ride to both passikudah & Kalkudah beaches. Fabulous food- the best we had in SL so far. We would highly recommend this place

Every time we travel to Passi we never forget to have a meal at Nandavanam. The food is awesome and will comeback again. The taste is matchless. Their crab curry and prawn deviled is the best. And of course the Dhal curry.

Excellent place to stay near the beach (1.5 km). Fine breakfast & dinner, very nice staff! To go to the beach, just order a tuk tuk or walk (20 minutes). Rooms with AC and Ventilator, very quiet. We would come back.

Pasikuda is replete with 5 star luxury accommodation charging in excess of $200 a night. We looked at some of them and they are great. However we didn't have the money to spend so Nandawanam Guest House proved an excellent choice. We had a family room which was big enough for a family of 4 (kids 6 and 3 years...
