Luxuriously spread over quite many acres and bordering the Bay of Bengal, this hotel offers a wonderful, albeit expensive option to unwind and relax and catch up on life uninterrupted by smartphones.

A fantastic hotel property just next to Covelong beach. This hotel is very huge/vast in size with nice greenery having all the required facilities one expect in a star hotel. To move around the property, the hotel offers free buggy service also.

Very nice hotel, especially when staying at the beach view cottages. Some renovations may me needed but in general it is a very nice areal. The restaurant close by the beach is excellent, reservations required. Also, enjoy a drink at the pool bar.

Go for villas if possible. Explore property map before booking. Staff, particularly dining one, is helpful, though rest of them are rather aloof. Overall, they can do a better job of advertising amenities and shows/performances.
