We stayed there for 3 nights and frequently visited the restaurant. Even though the place has great potential the main problem is the poor management. The restaurant is closed for long hours, so there is no option to even get a water which is unfortunate due to its quiet but distant location. The restuaurant offers a selection of good Asian...

Amazing gourmet cuisine, nice and friendly staff! the accomodations are decorated with love and from every hut you can see the sea and the beach and in the morning dolphins are playing after sunrise.

Hidden Gourmet can't be compared to anywhere else in Patnem. Everything is hugely a cut above. The restaurant is excellent food by any standard, freshly and expertly made, with superb ingredients and real style. The place itself is simply and spectacularly beautiful, romantic at night and glorious during the day. The rooms are light, airy and a real pleasure, especially...

We stayed as a honeymooning couple for 4 nights. It was recommended by a friend of a friend & we weren't disappointed by what we found. As Kezza has pointed out it's a bit more expensive than other places but remember this is India so everything is cheap in comparison to " home ". Our room was clean and had...

Having booked this accommodation for 3 nights from the UK we were certainly not disappointed with the location although very difficult for the taxi driver to find! It is one of the only places you can stay on Patnem and see the sun rise over the bay every morning. Despite this we were a little disappointed to arrive to find...

What an incredible place this is. I visited last year and this year I stayed in the amazing luxury tent. What a completely unforgettable stay. Waking up with the sea at my feet. Beyond description! And the food is so so good. Carpaccio of beef. Fantastic. I can't recommend this place enough.

Thoroughly enjoyed the magical nights in this luxurious tent by the sea after a wonderful meal at the restaurant. Going to sleep and waking up to the sound of lapping waves and watching dolphins play a stone's throw away - what a perfect way to start the day. The best location on Patnem Beach as we had the best of...

I had a fabulous stay here in the simple and clean accommodation and loved the restaurant. I loved the little touches like the pretty bed linen and beaded lamp shades in the restaurant. Staff were always friendly and the Swiss owner and chef was clearly passionate about his place, taking time to chat to us and other guests. Such an...

“Remember that you are staying in a guest house, not a soulless four star hotel. So conditions are more basic. But everything is perfectly comfortable and much less expensive than a fancypants hotel, and you are soothed to sleep by the sound of the sea which is right outside your door.. You will want to come back again, that's for sure!”

“If you must stay here, stay in a bungalow although prices are pretty hefty and not value for money. DO NOT stay in the room nearest the kitchen as you may not get water!”
