Not a well planned trip.. Got the Pool Villa by Luck and it made the trip most memorable. A good place to sit and relax. A good place for Family Outing. Rooms are clean, Staffs are co operative, Nice Service and Good Food..Kids enjoyed the stay. Never expected the kind of service during the Peak holiday season.

With 10-12k/night resorts next doors, this is total value for money. If you are expecting super swanky resort this is not the place. If you want a decent room with nice sit outs, private beach (almost), superb pool.. facing the beach & good veg food at a very good price this is the place. There is a private pool villa...

We had visited with the family and found it to be more of a 'under development' facility. This will be a definite pick for corporate events (Only downside would be no Non-Veg). However for family, it turned out to be a very down played affair for kids. The folks were very friendly. I would say that this place is value...

We were visiting mahabalipuram on our recent trip to India from Philadelphia and absolutely loved our stay at the villas in Silversands. This peaceful serene little resort is tucked away from the hectic world outside and it is a perfect get away if you are trying to unwind and relax.. it doesn't have too many of the touristy gimmicks and...

This place is great. It is one of the original resorts here and the owner has let it show its age, in a very good way. You will not find typical tourists here, yes please, no commercialized, fake accommodations. Nothing but a real, authentic experience, without any of the real world craziness that sits just outside. The food is very...

7 acres with only 10 cottages. Now that's a luxury in today's world. Very helpful staff. Vegetarian food is great. U can order non veg from some of the restaurants next door. They deliver. The infinity pool is perfect. And the beach is very neat and clean.

One of the oldest beach resort establishments in the area. Very peaceful and offers all the amenities to enjoy a peaceful and yet pleasurable stay. The beach here is also very clean. Just one km from Mahabalipuram with many eat out options nearby, so you are not compelled to eat within the resort. The swimming pool is well maintained and...

I was tired of the city madness, traffic and noise; so I decided to take a break and stay somewhere peaceful and away from city life. Booked it online on MMT, and got some good discount as I'd also booked my flight from them. It is around 1.30 hrs drive from Chennai Airport. As I reached there, a man escorted...

I traveled with my husband and I booked this place online, despite the mixed reviews. The first thing that struck me, was the space. Right from the highway till the beach and they managed to keep it to just a little over 10 cottages. The individual cottages are done in old style - might have been old houses redone. The...
