this was a really nice property away from the town.. average size cottages are very well distributed with landscaped green spaces in between. they have tried to make each corner beautiful in a very creative manner. the best part was the very well maintained bird aviary where almost 70-80 different types of birds mainly parakeets were there. the trainer there was a very friendly and skillful and he made our experience at aviary memorable. there was a little delay at room services and some maintenance issues in rooms like a few electric points were not working. but overall, very good property for couples stay, you can't accomodate kids in the same room. other activities they offer are cycling within their premises, badminton and archery. but you need good company to enjoy all these things. the swimming pool was there but the water seems to be dirty with no filtration. so we didn't dare to enter the pool.

Had a very pleasant stay in this very well maintained resort with my family The resort is spic & span,the 18 cottages are artistically decorated ,staff is polite & helpful.Right from the doorman to the 3(one female & 2 male) at the reception & restaurant staff. The aviary is a novelty,the Birdman managing it is pleasant, feeding the beautiful birds is a pleasure in itself. The big Ducks roaming around the premises are a delight to both kids & elders. Games are aplenty..carrom, archery etc. Swimming pools are clean. Buffet breakfast served has good variety & tasty. Chinese cuisine available is also good. As the resort was fully booked, there was no early check-in & late check out ...but the management very politely told us that we could use the entire resort amenities while we waited. Overall a very pleasant stay , highly recommended.

One of the best in Mahabalipuram. Away from the usual crowded center, a very good place to relax. It has pretty much everything you may ask for. A complete package for family. Kids never get bored. They can bird watch, play in the play area, relax in the swimming pool, play a game of chess, cycle around the campus, and if nothing else works - just watch tv. The staff personnel are very friendly and provide us with whatever we ask for. Couldn't ask for a more relaxing weekend. Special thanks to the bird man Mr.Veeraraghavan and the manager Mr.Arul.

This place is a beautiful haven. Excellent rooms, greenery but the best part is it's little own bird sanctuary. It was not just serene but also a small little biodiversity in itself. But what would make us never forget the place is the property manager. My husband and I were stuck in an isolated area 30 mins away from the resort as our tyre got bursted. He was our life-saver as at midnight, he sent a mechanic to us and ensured we reached safely. Throughout the stay, he made sure we got everything we wanted. Can't thank u enough.

We had a very comfortable and pleasant stay strong the Bodhiwoods resort. The management team and staff were very helpful with arranging the booking based on our requirements and taking care of our requests during our stay. The room is clean and comfortable. The food is fresh and good. They have a bird aviary that houses macaws, cockatoos, parakeets of different colours. You can feed the birds and play with them. The resort also has provision to play badminton and a few other games with small children's park as well. A nice place to visit for a family. It's a short distance from the tourist spots at Mahabalipuram too which is an added bonus.

Chennai District, India2 contributions2 helpful votes
Stayed for just one night. The chalets looked good and were all made with pine wood. The rooms were very very comfortable and maintained very well. The hospitality is excellent. It is not a beachfront property but its quick bicycle ride away. Children will have the most fun with the aviary, play areas, the bicycles and the swimming pool. Liked it that you don't serve liquor. On the food front, it was well cooked and quite delicious and their chef was very accommodating towards customizing dishes for young children. Loved the aviary. The checkout extension options are much appreciated. Some suggestions to the management: a) An indoor game room with table tennis, board games will be an attractive addition. b) I saw you were adding more chalets. An additional pool will be helpful. The current pool may not be sufficient if you have all your rooms full after expansion. c) A shuttle ride to the beach on request for those who don't want to drive / cycle up would be nice.

We visited Bodhi resort in Oct 2020, I must say it was way beyond my expectations. Marvellous place and a hidden gem in Chennai. It was our first time visit to this place and also our first time vacation after the COVID lockdown. Right from the entrance it's a world of it's own. Top notch cleanliness and hygiene, place has it's own activities such as a badminton court, archery, indoor games - carrom and chess, bicycles to ride around and of course the swimming pool 😍. They have a huge bird aviary the only one I have seen so far in a resort in Chennai. Unfortunately it was under maintenance when we had visited and it would be up in the next 10 days. Food is okay, need some improvement. Pillows were uncomfortable but I am told it's getting changed in the coming days. Manager Arul was extremely helpful throughout our stay as we had kids with us (infant and a eight year old). He was kind, attentive and was always guiding and advising his staff every morning what needs to be done for the day, like a drill (good practice). Every worker until the gardner was wearing a mask which clearly shows the safety measures that was taken to protect the inhouse guests. Moreover Arul was helpful in making a specific meal plan for my family. Special mention to the server/waiter/helper - Madhavan, guess he is all in all 🙂👍 very helpful. Overall our stay was a memorable one. Thanks Senthil 🙏

Nice place with a play area, an aviary and also close proximity to group of monuments in Mahabalipuram. Good staff Clean rooms for a comfortable stay. Hotel also arranges for package tour of surrounding places and also for airport drops, though at an additional cost, but it saves us the hassles of doing so.

Very cozy and comfortable property. Stayed for 2 nights on our visits to Mahabs and Pondy and made this as a hub. Its closer to the light house, not next to a beach, may be that is the only con. The staff are extremely courteous and helpful, any time. They kind of have a mini aviary also inside which is a sell off for the kids. On one of the days we decided to skip food in the city center and headed here for dinner. The Chef's special and the other items we ordered were so tasty that any doubt we had in our decision to skip dinner at the town center, were erased. Such good was the taste. The restaurant is clean and hygienic as well. Another pro is its walkable from the Light House and the martime museum (if whether permits). Easily accessible from the ECR as well, as you dont have to enter the town. All in all, if you are looking for some peace, stay here.

I liked the resort at the very first shot. Very well maintained. Though the swimming pool is small well maintained. Rooms are neat and staffs are very polite. Worth for money. Families can be safe. Off course if you have a vehicle, it is a goor place for a weekend.
