Beautiful resort, beautiful location, poor management by KTDC. Sad to see an amazing heritage property being destroyed through neglect . Sarkari Chalta hai attitude everywhere. I wish they maintain the property and its antiques in a better manner. The food is poor in variety and taste. So eat outside or get delivered. The massage at the spa is good and...

This is another resort managed by KTDC and they are doing a really good job. The hotel is an old palace now converted into a resort with sea on both sides of it.

We stayed three nights and is one of the best stay away from home. Being KTDC services you have limitations. If the service is made world class you will never leave this place surrounded by back waters. If you can get/afford a stay it is definitely worth it
