Had read some very good reviews about this resort.
Incidentally i had visited this resort as a kid several years back while it was being operated by MTDC. Had some fond memories then, though it was not so well maintained in those days.
The most beautiful part of this resort is that the moment you step out of the resort backyard, you can dig in your feet in the sand. And if it is high tide, the water splashes right in your face.
The rooms are nice and well maintained. We were allotted a room but 'Bunk Bed' (Normal Bed on the ground and another bunk bed elevated). And this was not just a kids bunk bed, but an adult one indeed. Simply awesome. More than my 4 year old daughter it was me who was super excited. There are it seem only 2-3 rooms of this type i understand.
Amazing food. Their package is inclusive of Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. So if you skip any, your bad.
Hamocks, imported geared cycles on hire. They charge about inr.75 for an hour.
Small cycles for kids also available.
Another key attraction are the ducks that roam about in this resort. There were about 5-6 of them and they all over the place. On of the ducks has just hatched a chick one week before we visited and it was so fun watching them.
Go on enjoy this place.
