Hi folks, I am back with a review of a memorable stay at Chariot Beach Resort with my family. The booking was easy online. We were greeted with garlands of sea shells and registration was not too long. We were shuttled to the room(I took a Sea View Cottage) via a buggy. The room is spacious for a family of...

I arrived in Chennai around 1300 hrs and the weather was horrendous. Extremely hot and humid. The resort had sent a shuttle to the airport and the driver was extremely nice but a huge language barrier. The resort gave me a extremely Hawaiian welcome with sea shells and a coconut drink which was extremely refreshing. The room was extremely big...

I had a very enjoyable and relaxing mid-week retreat with family. Upon arrival, we were welcomed by staff with refreshing cool fruit juices and shell necklaces were placed around our necks - really great souvenirs for us to take home. We were promptly taken to our cottages in an electric buggy and shown the facilities within the room. The room...

We stayed in a cottage close to the beach. Very spacious, immaculate, modern, perfectly painted & beautifully quiet . The resort has obviously been taken over in the last year by someone who has being improving it massively & management seem keen to really make it perfect . They are almost there! The bar was great and the only thing...

We visited this resort during a long weekend with family and friends. We were given a pretty warm welcome at the reception. We were travelling with two kids and the guys at the reception immediately gave us an upgrade to a cottage. We took a short buggy ride to the cottage which was 200 meters away from the beach. May...

A fantastic property with private beach with lot of scope for improvement.. rooms are designed very well but seems to be old..restaurant is not up to the mark specially the buffet..Very good pool in fact a bit bigger than other resorts..if its maintained well then this would be one of the best resort in mahaballipuram

We stayed for a few nights at this hotel in February this year. The investment in this hotel must have been huge as is evident with the super sized swimming pool, furnishings etc so why they have decided not to invest in training their staff is hard to understand. Worn out bed linen, often grubby looking, the room cleaning was...
