This is my second stay here. This resort is quiet for India and is in a lovely location by the beach. We had paid for a cottage and it was nice - my friend didnt like the outside shower but I didnt mind it so much. I dont think though that the cottage was worth what we paid for it....

Location wise it is quite far away from the main city so it would be wise to go after the business with main city is done. The rooms are lovely and offers the most beautiful view near chennai. The resturant has a good seafood and is worth the money too. The staff were very friendly.

The property is located beachfront on the Bay of Bengal 40 km (about 75 minutes in traffic) south of the Chennai airport. We stayed in a Premium Sea View Cottage, which I highly recommend. The outdoor...

It's a lovely property and has all you need. The cottages are fab, but the deluxe wing rooms are also great . They are new and modern with high ceilings, great bathrooms, really comfortable beds and balconies . The upper deck restaurant also does a good continental menu.
