“Rooms with a breathtaking view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2010

We had been on the road for 25 hours, travelling 1400 km at a stretch, before we checked into the APTDC Resort at Rushikonda in Visakhapatnam (this was an overnight transit stop, recommended by a close friend who had been there earlier).

The view from in front of the hotel was so glorious, it took away the tiredness of the journey in an instant. 100% worth it, though we stayed for just one night.

The hotel itself is built on a cliff looking out to the crescent-shaped beach, and the main building has two varieties of rooms (the ones on the first floor are smaller, have a smaller balcony, and cost Rs.2200 + taxes; the ones on the second floor are larger, better equipped with a small refrigerator and electric kettle, have a larger bed, and a wonderfully huge balcony - these cost Rs.2500 + taxes, and we chose one of these).

In fact, we spent more time on the balcony in the evening than we did inside the room!

Room service is available without extra service charge, but watch out - this is Andhra Pradesh, and liberal use of chillies in whatever is served up can make for a rather hot experience as it did for us! The food is otherwise good, but not palatable to small children. The bar is located at 5 minutes' walking distance (down the stairs leading to the beach) and is not a part of the property itself.

I would let the pictures do the talking.

Had been to the restaurant for lunch during my visit to the popular beach in Rishikonda..

Initially I had no expectations,but I am delighted with the quality of food that was offered to us..The north indian dishes served (as we preferred) tasted authentic and very tasty unlike many other restos in south indian small cities which claim to serve multi-cuisine.Quality of the rice/roti and the food is top class with no doubt at all..

This one doesnt impress you at the first glance, but will express its elegance when you start relishing your food with breathtaking views that surround the hotel (thanks to transperant windows that add to the beauty)

A place to visit again..dont miss it

I was living in India as a missionary for three months and this was the short "getaway" location for a few days of some much needed R&R. First off the hotel is in India so if you're expecting a five star resort in an undeveloped portion of this third-world country... stay home. But Haritha Beach Resort is beatuiful, relaxing, and most importantly...no mosquitoes!!! YAY! The view from the patio/porch of each room is breath-taking and the food is really good too! It would be a perfect spot for a small wedding/retreat and was a great spot to spend time laughing and sharing memories with family and friends. Harith Beach Resort... we will meet again!

I stayed at the suite room (luxury, cost Rs 2500). The plus points are great view of the beach and hills, cleanliness or the room and toilets and a spacious attached balcony to enjoy the view. The suite rooms are in the newly constructed block.

Did not try the restaraunt, but there is another place called vihari, at walking distance as a second option.

However, when I called up in the morning to make a reservation, the booking clerk said they confirmed my reservation. However, when I walked in at night, they could not find my name. Luckily, rooms were vacant and I was able to stay.

Also beware of the room service. We ordered coffee in the morning, which never came.
