“Cozy & Beautiful place facing the ocean”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

Visited vizag for new years eve 2012 and loved the hotel. We booked the lovely cottage room (disappointing for couples coz its a twin bed) the room was very cozy and was touching the swimming pool. Great place for couples to stay.. warm service.. places comes across as a very cosmo hotel but restricts to serving south indian food esp at breakfast.

Room Tip: choose the cottage room.. they are damn good.... but as couples u may need to join the 'twin bed...

It’s a cute and lovely property with all basic amenities fulfilling your needs; though it’s a cluster of spacious cottages which are build in a small but well maintained compound with a lawn and swimming pool.
I stayed with my wife for 3 days and 2 nights and enjoyed the cozy ambiance of our cottage which had a huge window adjacent to the pool…which made our stay more romantic…!!! The linen and blankets were fresh and the fridge was loaded with beverages!!!!
The ayurvedic spa was real good and rejuvenating offering various therapies to suits your needs. The hygiene levels maintained were satisfactory and the attendants were polite and courteous. The spa rates were on the higher side, hence there’s a need to have some amendment in the charges, though we were given a discount of 10%...
The breakfast served is relishing and delicious, also the room service guy was prompt in serving us all our meals in our cottage. Menu is limited but the food quality is good and the rates were quite reasonable….
Overall the say was pleasant and I would prefer coming back to Bay leaf for my next visit to Vizag..!!

I went with my husband for a short trip to vizag from 28th december 2011 to 1st january 2012. We booked the ac delux cottage. The experience was awsome. The rooms clean and a spacious bathroom adds to the comfort. It had a li'l flaw when the ac remote didn't work and one light wasn't working..but then that caused no trouble. The food was tasty including the complimentary breakfast and the resturant menus. The quantity was more than enough. They arranged for local sightseeing and araku visit and on special request a day extra was arranged for us to visit some local places. The sea view beyond explanation. The ambience excellent and staff cooperative. I would definitely suggest visit to bayleaf for stay and spa (well very good spa). In case of li'l flaws..well didn't harm much. The best experience was more the the trivial flaws.

We went to this Spa-resort on a friend's recommendation .... wish we had seen the reviews here earlier!! Our experiences were very similar to @rajeevk (A stained and Strained Exp).
The check-in was smooth, but had to wait 5 min while the room was being cleaned out. This despite a reservtion for 1500h and arriving at 1510h. The room smelt really good and looked clean. Water was gushing at the taps (literally .... so much so that had to be careful not to splash the clothes). The AC also seemed pretty efficent and after a short nap, the kids clamoured for the pool.
Thats where we got our first surprise. The language problem of the staff had led us to believe that the pool was shallow for kids. However the pool's 4-1/2', also, there's nothing to hold on the sides.... so kids needed floats which werent available. Plus, there are no ladders, so wifey backd out. That left me to hold the kids and play with them (although, I admit that was fun too).
The restraunt is quite good ... although as a North Indian, I find it amusing that they call a "tawa paratha" as a Chappati! Bonus - the prices are reasonable considering its a spa-resort. (egg curry-50/-, "chappati"-20/-.) The complimentary S.Indian breakfast was very tasty and sumptuos. However, we had to ask (and remind) the room service to give tea bags etc.
The main disappointment came when we tucked in ..... the blanket had a cigarette hole, the bedsheet was small and couldnt cover the complete bed! and had oil (??) stains. The main issue was that the AC and fan kept getting varying due to voltage fluctuations, although to be fair, I wonder what the mgt can do abt it!
The restroom, though clean, had water accumulation problems due to bad sloping. No handtowels, shower curtains or footmats too. The best was that the window hinge was broken so that the window couldnt be closed, HENCE EXPOSING THE BATHER TO ANY PASSERBY!! When pointed out, the guy who responded only vaguely promised to check it out, which didnt happen in the next four hours, by when we checked out.
I tried the full body ayurvedic massage+steam bath. The staff was polite, experienced and hygenic. However had a shocking moment when we were informed that the lady massuere had taken a day off for Dusherra. I had to throw my weight to ensure that she was made available. Imagine a stay at a Spa where ur wife doesnt end up getting one!

PLUS POINTS -
The spa surely. Good food, specially B'fast.
10% discount on spa for residents.
kids upto 5 free.
Helpful receptionist.

MINUS POINTS -
Linen hygiene
Bad pool design
Voltage fluctuations
Response of staff.
Repairs of room problems (the long term variety)

OVERALL - Must visit for Spa .... stay at ~2500 for double occupancy is rather steep for the quality.

Room Tip: I recommend the non-delux cottage, overlooking the pool.
