Reviewed 30 March 2017 via mobile

It seemed like our Goa experience would be hard to beat. However, the folks at Fishermans Cove at Covelong beach an hour outside Chennai (Madras), not only matched the Aguada but raised the stakes to a new level. The front office greeted us with pepper hot Madrasi warmth that was second to none. They upgraded us to a sea side...

The property and staff justify the name Taj - and the group they represent. Right from the security at the gate till the house keeping staff, they are all smiles and ready to serve you. Food is good and property is maintained very well.

Old Taj property a short drive away from Chennai on the picturesque ECR near Mahabalipuram. Avoid the new wing as it's far away from the main areas and quite dreary. Quite a walk from the all day restaurant. The cottages & villas are located bang opposite the beach front and are all exceptionally well maintained. Quaint open air rain shower...

Rooms were decent; food was average though I liked breakfast more than the lunch;Swimming pool was also decent but it could have been cleaner; service was average probably because it was a busy long weekend.

The view and location is something you would love. Right at the beach front with a lovely (private) lawn that separates the beach and the bay with your villa. We really loved the place which comes with true Taj Hospitality (notwithstanding some minor niggles). While we did not go to Mahabalipuram that is not really far from here - we...
