This government-run resort is located on the sea-side,next to science-centre(on the way to corbyn's cove beach) approx 5 kms out of town.Resort campus is vast and nicely maintained.As it is a camping resort,its operational period is from November to April(to avoid hazards due to the rains).Presently it houses 4 A.C. domes(concrete wall),4 A.C. tents & 5 non A.C. tents.The tents operate only from Nov-April(depending on weather conditions) but the 4 domes are open for the guests, throughout the year.We had bookd 2 A.C. domes online(aniidco.nic.in)for 5 nights(Rs/- 2000 per night EP).The domes are spacious,clean,nicely furnished with 1 double bed,luggage rack,sofa set,dinning table,colour t.v.,intercom facility etc.The attached bathroom has 24 hrs hot water supply,telephone shower,western latrine & wash-basine.
The restaurant is small but the food was very good in taste(though the items were limited).They also provide room service.
Nothing to worry about power-cut while staying at this resort,they have noiseless generator.
The staffs were much friendly and always smiling.The resort also arranges sight-seeing trip,pick up-dropping from airport on request.They picked us from the airport on arrival(chargeable).
2 more A.C. domes and 1 big A.C. restaurant are currently under construction.
