Cool and comfortable rooms, good food and friendly staff. The gardens are beautifully kept and the beach is metres away. There's always some interesting activity along the beach where the fishing boats come in. Personally I'd be a bit hesitant about swimming there though. Good location for visiting the Shore Temple.

We spent two nights here at the beginning of a tour of Southern India and found it the ideal place to recover from a very hectic and sleepless start to the trip. We were given room 34 which offered a view of the restaurant to one side and a glimpse of the ocean through the palm trees on the other....

Comfortable rooms many overlooking the beach. Nice pool, and excellent restaurant. The buffet had a wide variety of food, although due to the introduction of a new Indian law regarding the selling of alcohol it was not possible to have any wine or beer with the meal. The rooms were comfortable with free wifi and a nice outside space to...

I and wife spent some time here for a short holiday. The location is great, right on the beach. The layout is very good. Maintenance not too bad. There is a beach (almost private) with security and regular cleaning provided. The restaurant is a little overpriced. Food quality is average.
