What a beautiful and well maintained property! We had a fantastic stay. The rooms are right on the beach front with waves lashing so near and a continuous sound of the waves and water making it so soothing. Whether in your balcony or on the hammock or their beach chairs one could totally relax. The private beach is beautiful. Not a rock, great for those who wish to take their dips and take long walks too. Never seen a cleaner beach in India. Tha staff is very pleasing, and the food good too. A must visit for beach lovers.special thanks to Rajeev and the MD of the the Resort Mr sherief....wornderful

Room tip: Every thing is good there.

We were 2 families who had booked two triple rooms.
The access is very easy and no hassles at all reaching there, you may wonder towards the approach that is there a resort around since its very much in the middle of residential area.
Parking space is plenty, just that its in the compound next to the main building and watch out where you park as many coconut trees around. The attendants will guide you very well on that.
The resort is right on the beach and there are two type of rooms: One which are at the ground level and open to lawns, the other are steps to climb. The larger rooms are at one level above so do check for that. The ones which open to the lawn have that benefit of open lawn in front.
The triple rooms have open to air bathing area, which was a little surprise to us as we haven't been used to that. Only one room does not have, which was one of our rooms. The glass above the washing area was broken which led us to think its a damage but then it was clarified that this is how it is.
The rooms are very spacious indeed, common areas are clean and well kept.
Its great for the family and if you have your own car you can reach out to eat, get some stuff easily with no hassles.
Our A/C stopped working in one room on the first night and it needed repair. Though we do not expect it to be done in the middle of the night, we did expect a courtesy " benefit" of some sort to compensate which did not come. To make up the least could have been a gesture like a small meal! This was certainly a little turn off, repairs are seriously needed on some aspects so make sure the room you got has all working.
Pros:
Superb location, beach is so close and easy to access. It's almost a private beach as none else really can be seen so very safe too.
Neat and clean common spaces
Courteous staff, helpful.
Cons:
Its aging, needs maintenance for sure( some pics attached)
Breakfast spread is very ordinary and seriously lacks options.
Overall it was wonderful for the price we paid and the experience of having the beach so close that even at 6 AM one can walk out to witness the sunrise with no second thoughts.

Room tip: Try to ask for rooms with lawns, unless you need a large family room. Make sure all is in working condition like AC etc.
Date of stay: December 2020

We were here last week for 3 nights, we had booked a luxury room, facing beach, this is a good resort. The rooms are large, & the toilets are big. Beach is private property, kept clean & tidy, with not much of crowd, more of a privacy for families. I should mention Unimaya at the Reception who helped us in a speedy checkin, and Akhil at the restaurant was very helpful, good and polite. Breakfast buffet had few dishes but they were well made, tasty. I would definitely recommend this place for families being a peaceful place.

Room tip: rooms facing the beach have good views
