Visited with kids so was particular about having a beach close by and a swimming pool, both were met. Throw in delicious food & good service, soaked in a pleasant experience.

We stayed two nights in this lovely resort. The pool is large and very inviting, and it's a short walk to the beach. The food is good, although the waiters are "too attentive". It's barely possible to eat a bite without someone trying to "help". It seems that the place is being enlarged, also air conditioners are being installed in...

This resort designed in old colonial heritage style mixed with Indian traditional style has a unique feel to it. Proximity to the sea is a big plus point. The beach is very clean and easily accessible by a gate. The swimming pool is average size but provides adequate privacy for many users, but it too deep in most of the...

The first impression blew our minds off. For the price that you pay, I think it's a decent bet. It's a fair sized property with a huge pool, around 45 rooms, a villa, and access to the beach (closes at 6pm). The rooms are big (can accommodate 3) and the whole property has a heritage look. The restaurant has a...

Unfortunately it's recently been taken over & has had a corporate makeover and is just awful. The be management have instituted a number of changes that have ruined the place.

The resort is not very well maintained. The service is bad as the food delivery takes a long time and the they don't respond on time. But, the redeeming factor is the private beach. The beach is very clean and it was nice to experience that. Otherwise a big no no.

Its an isolated property. However is a good and big property. Rooms are decent and maintained. Property after a point is not well maintained. Beach side is good but but not clean. Servicing in restaurant is slow but food was good (ala carte). Break fast is decent.
