Although originally slated to be on the cliff-side, we walked back with our backpacks in the heat and were glad with our decision. Akshay's room was clean, much larger than what was...

Even though we were here for two nights only (due to only one week of holidays, otherwise we would have def stayed longer!) we felt at home from the very beginning! Shibu and Manu are awesome!

I spent 3 weeks at Akshay Beach Resort and I did not want to leave the place.
