I stayed for 1 night in the Prince Christian room - just lovely, with a 4-poster bed and french doors out to the wide verandah circling the upstairs. Wonderful location facing the sea and the fort. Beautiful old building. I know there have been many comments posted about the food here, but while the service was a little haphazard, my...

Outstanding situation overlooking the beach and Danish Fort of Tranquebar. Staff friendly. By far the best is the colonial house itself with the veranda running in front of all upstairs rooms. The latter are in need of renovation though - lights are inadequate and bathroom plumbing does not appear to have been modernized in the last century. Bathtowels are likely...

This NeemRana group of properties is doing a very good job of reviving and maintaining some of the old old historical places throughout India. Once you are done with the bit complicated and irritating process of making your booking during which you are made to feel as if it is the NeemRana guys who are obliging you to let you...

We ordered for some continental & Indian food, 1st of all service was terrible, it took us around...

We stayed in the Princess Louise room - the largest room. It is a corner room with dual aspect - absolutely stunning. We requested at time of booking and were lucky to get our choice. The food was very good sadly no alcohol but not a big problem for us. The house stands right next to the pink Fort on...

Recently we visited the property on the recommendation of one of our acquaintances. When we entered the hotel it was pouring heavily. While we were completely drenched the guards were just watching us and it did not occur to them to provide umbrelas to protect us from the rains. Our friends wanted a particular room which they had booked( facing...

We went with another couple. Drove down from Chennai. It took us about 6.5 hours with a couple of breaks for breakfast and lunch. The bungalow, as its name suggests, is right on the beach. Lovely old bungalow, beautifully maintained. It has eight well-appointed rooms, a lovely swimming pool and a good restaurant. Breakfast is complimentary. Lunch and dinner are...

Bungalow on the beach is a beautiful boutique hotel with just 8 rooms each on different, right on the Bay of Bengal. It is an experience to stay here, sleep with the sound of the ocean and experience the tranquility I visited it a few times for lunch and decided to stay for two nights. It is an unique experience,...

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
