Location: Excellent.. very close to the beach. In ecr, few kms before Mahabs. Parking: Open parking only.. one that is closer to the rooms can accommodate 10 -12 cars.. another one nor entrance is big one, but it's far from the rooms.. Check in, check out separate counters which makes things so easy.. very good idea.. Rooms: Economy room itself...

A bit remote from the sightseens...

Private parties and celebrations meant we had loud music playing for most of Saturday. But our room was large, clean and comfortable. The food has excellent variety and is plentiful. Highly...

A sprawling resort on the beachside, great customer service, facilities and rooms. Food on offer was excellent too as it catered for traditional and western tastes. Felt like it took us quite a while to get to, coming from Kochi, but was worth it. Whether you'd like to hang at the beach or go visiting the touristy places near by...

This hotel is right on the beach of the Bay of Bengal. It's a large property but our bedroom faced the ocean. From the huge balcony the sun rises were magnificent.
