This is a fabulous resort, with a fabulous pool, fabulous food, with the most wonderful and welcoming staff. I’m not sure what star rating is given to this resort (my opinion it is definitely 3/4*), however; what marks this resort above any other I’ve stayed in is the World Class 7* Customer Service that you receive. From the top of...

It initially tore my jeans after getting stuck. Since it was late night I didn't complained. Later next day it again got...

Stayed at Deshadan Cliff & Beach Resort in the third week of November. Thank you!! Team Deshadan for giving us the best service and for making the moments really special. The candle light dinner, well kempt rooms, the ambience of the restaurant, and service deserves special mention. Really loved the way the rooms have been named. Malabar, Mughal, Jaipur ...........

We really enjoyed our stay here and would have given 5 stars, had they not arranged their own "taxi" to the train station for us in an ancient Morris Minor death trap! No seatbelts, no A/C and when we went over a pothole, I smashed my head into the roof, resulting in a headache/mild concussion! So always check any cars...

Should definitely try out this place if you are staying for 1-2 days. Excellent environment and management team. The manager "Sajid" is very friendly and i would say an 'awesome' person. One suggestion to the manager would be to have names of food items listed beside the items during buffet.(really helps!) Overall thank you guys! Will surely visit again soon.
