“Denied us the rooms in the last minute”
Reviewed 4 January 2012

We booked two rooms at this place through makemytrip almost a week before our travel. After booking the place, we gave a call to both makemytrip and the resort to make sure that it is confirmed. Both of them confirmed the booking.

During our trip, we gave them a call on our way from Kovalam beach to Kanyakumari for driving directions and that's when they told us we don't have a booking. We were in the middle of no where and they denied us the rooms. We called makemytrip and they told us that we have the booking and its already confirmed with the resort. We are not sure whose fault it is but it looked like the resort sold the rooms to someone else for higher price as it was a peak holiday season. We were stranded on the highway and had to be on call with makemytrip for more than 3 hours to get rooms booked at another hotel.

It was a very bad and scary experience. It's really bad on their part to deny the room in the last minute after having confirmed the booking a few days earlier itself.

Stayed December 2011, travelled with family

Even though there are many draw backs about the resort the efforts of Mr.Raju should be appreciated in developing such a resort idea in this area.
To me its a heaven for people in this south side. I think that this would be the first and only resort near kanyakumari, tuticorin and trinelveli.
The area is too far and remote i accept but only that gives a calm place to stay.Such a resort cannot be in the heart of the city.
There is some lack of Staff and Maintenance but not that much bad for the price he offers.
In future for sure when staffs are settled down sure Raju will provide better service.
Anyway i have stayed thrice with my family we enjoyed the rooms and the pool.
It was really a very calm place to relax.
We all liked it will also repeat often.

Room Tip: Choose the cottages . Standard rooms are really too small.

This hotel is not like a hotel in real sense. The hotel is situated in Marungoor which is about 15 kms away from Kanyakumari. It takes about 30 minutes to reach there. The approach is very difficult with narrow road full with pot holes .If you travel safely up to this remotely placed hotel with no property or population adjoining it , you get a sigh of relief. The staff is very limited with one Manager doing all chores himself. The TV is fitted but not working.This status was same in earlier reviews of this hotel. Service is very poor as no one is there to listen. There is no intercom and one has to dial local landline number to talk to receptionist/ Manager/cook. Very few food items are available and you have to keep guessing what would be cooked today. Once cooked ,you have no choice. There is nothing nearby and you are at their mercy. Rates are very high for sub standard food.I am surprized what is great in this hotel. Children got bored in night without any TV at such a lonely place.

Room Tip: Very good hotel for honeymoon couples. No one disturbing and no one listening. Great place to enjoy...

Resort and the facilities is just about average. Food is also not so great. Staff and service was okay. This resort is far away from Kanyakumari in an isolated place. You will find better options at this price in Kanyakumari itself.

We went there on our family vacation and loved every bit of 24 hours we'd spent

The resort is surrounded by Mountains and as a family we felt in real close connect in nature

Where else in this world you get to hear the music of winds and rainfall @ 1800 bucks (40 USD)

Add to that the personalised attention of hotel onwer Mr Raju with his great knowledge of local histroy & culuture and lip smacking meals by their chef (don't miss the tea & onion pakora's at sunset)

Also it's one of those resorts where with every passing hour the expereince keeps getting better, but with limited staff at resort be prepared for slow check in/out/housekeeping and basic restaurant

If you need any particular dish, the wise option will be to write to them in advance

if you're traveling with kids take them for a bird/peacock watching walk in their jungle area

Room Tip: Breakfast atop their watertank
