Perfect family getaway. Awesome overall experience. My kid loves the swimming pool here. The beach side hammocks are a great place to read and relax on a lazy Sunday afternoon. The service and the location is excellent. Very well maintained property.

It was pretty full the weekend we went but we didn't feel "crowded" in spite of a wedding party- we had a couple of the garden view rooms and one sea view villa that overlooked a nice big lawn and a glimpse of the sea beyond .. easy access to the beach. Rooms were well appointed but people with bad...

We had stayed over in the long weekend of April for 2 nights in the sea view villa. The property looks very aesthetic and well planned and neat. The highlight is the private beach with thatched roofed for seating. We could see the residue of the oil spill near the shore. But totally disappointing was the maintenance and service in...

Cool and comfortable rooms, good food and friendly staff. The gardens are beautifully kept and the beach is metres away. There's always some interesting activity along the beach where the fishing boats come in. Personally I'd be a bit hesitant about swimming there though. Good location for visiting the Shore Temple.
