Punami Rishikonda
Reviewed 7 March 2012

View - View of the bay of bengal from atop this little hill is breathtaking. Rooms are all sea facing, so I believe views from any of the rooms is superb. The strong curve of the beach tapering towards the further end makes it all the more beautiful.

Rooms - We booked from Kolkata APTDC. I wanted a private verandah. My room charge per day was Rs. 2644 (incl taxes). The AC room was spacious, clean with double bed, had a large LCD, 2 sofas, coffee table, wardrobe, a small refrigerator, geyser in the bathroom...

Restaurant - The sea facing restaurant serves very good food. It also has an open section which is very soothing at night owing to the soft sea breeze.

Service - I had a feedback from friends about poor service, but surprisingly I found the service to be very satisfying.

Location - 16-18 km away from the railway stn and 24 km from the airport beach resort is remotely located and I found no shops nearby. Beach is a long flight of tiring stairs (esp when you are returning).

Beach - The beach line is short but good for bathing owing to absence of rocks. The beach hardly ever gets crowded due to the remoteness.

Room Tip: I saw some rooms whose sea views were being obscured by large trees sprucing up before them. Make su...

The hotel was situated on a cliff just overlooking the Bay of Bengal. May be not the greatest when it comes to the facilities, but the location scored above all. I loved the picture perfect scenery from the hotel balcony and cant think about any other hotels which can match its location. Service was not up to the mark.

The moment you see this resort location either on website or through brochure you think of staying there, but actual trouble starts only when you stay there. Govt of Andhra Pradesh, tourism dept Punnami Rishikonda resort stay really gives you bad experience. It is very far from City, naturally you will have to resort on the service they provide, as you have no other go to go out and buy something for you. But here if you order something you will get that particular item only when it becomes cold. If you order something very cold, you will get that only after it becomes hot. After at least 10 requests, pleadings & shoutings, they MAY/MAYNOT clean your room. Service is very bad. View is very good from each room.
