The only place worth staying in Tarangambadi. The Danish fort was a let down particularly the restoration in the ground floor looks garish with steel bars? Bungalow on the beach is beautifully restored, stayed on the first floor in Prince Christian Room, very spacious with old world charm, the cuisine was very good with polite and smiling staff. Excellent view...

This resort had been on our wishlist list for over a year. Its about 5hrs drive from Chennai! We drove down the day before diwali this year and unfortunately also the day there was cyclonic warning. We had a scary drive( for about 1 hr) through some deep water caused by the cyclonic rains! The drive took us longer than...

This place ticked off all the boxes and expectations that it promised. Large spacious rooms, with your own private deck. we were in the ground floor, so we could not really see the beach but I think if you tak the first floor room, you have your own deck view of the beach. If you order the basic fare like...

Right on the beach, spacious rooms, good food, no noise except for the waves breaking on the beach ... a wonderful experience !

To start with, Tranquebar is magic!!! A lesser known destination, it's hard to believe that this treasure has very little written about it. A small fishing town (village) where you can drown into nothingness. Clean beaches, spectacular churches, breathtaking views of the Bay of Bengal and streets that are right out of a fairy tale. Even as a single lady...

An expensive place that provides a memorable stay. The heritage bungalow is beautiful with the sounds of the sea as music. Well designed, it provides rooms on the ground floor priced at 5000/- onwards (excluding taxes) and on the first floor, the rates are even higher. Booking directly on their website is better, according to the manager, since you will...

This heritage bungalow is situated in the small town of Tharangambadi aka Tranquebar. The stay was very plesant with spacious and colonial era rooms. They have a pool just next to the beach and view from the 1st floor windows and verandah is amazing. Try for the sea view rooms on the 1st floor. Food is average.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The restored Bungalow stands as a reminder of a Danish Admiral, Ove Gjedde, sent by the king of Denmark with two ships. They were well received by the Nayak ruler of Tanjore, and given this territory. Then Dansborg, the Fort of Tharangambadi – a solid example of Scandinavian military architecture was established to export pepper to Denmark. The oldest Lutheran church in India was built here in 1706.Today you can drive in through a beautiful gate of the majestic King Street, past Lutheran churches and grand bungalows of the Danish Governors’ and the British Collector’s residence. Re-live marine history; visit the temples of Kumbakonam and Tanjore. The town remains a glorious tribute to architecture from across the world.Tranquebar is reputed to have the thickest ozone layer in India which is ideal for relaxation as it rejuvenates and helps all those who visit prolong their life. Facing full east, The Bungalow on the Beach gives guests their own encounter with the sun and sea breeze. Time becomes irrelevant when you stand facing the sunrise: a 14th century Pandya temple on your left and a 17th century Danish fort to the right.Come taste ‘eternity’ in a stopover! ... more   less
