“Not for a quiet family getaway.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2008

Ambience: This place looked well landscaped, maintained and the cottages appeared pretty. The rooms appeared reasonably clean and comfortable.
Food: was average and service was not upto the mark - probably because of a huge group that was staying at the resort. All resort staff seemed to be looking after the huge group. Breakfast was reasonably good, but the rest was not grt. We decided to eat out also in order to avoid the huge group and the noise in the restaurant.
Activities: The property offers a nice swimming pool and facilities to play games like cricket and volleyball - which was being utilized by the big group. They also offered ayurvedic massage, indoor games and a gym.
The gym was dirty and gym equipment was completely ruined. The table tennis equipment was also not well maintained. There were wine glasses lying around.

We came looking for a quiet family getaway, but the huge group - apparently a group of doctors with their families were having a batch re-union and had loud pumping music playing in the lawns which spoilt the ambience completely. How on earth can they allow this to happen in a resort unless it is a party night open to all guests and well away from the rooms?

I guess this is one of many resorts along ECR which seems to cater to big groups - mostly business executives who need a weekend relaxation - booze and partying. Further I am not sure if things would be different during the middle of the week as even on the Monday, as the big group left the resort, another group landed there in a bus to just spend the day utilising the facilities including swimming pool at the resort along with lunch and high tea.
How can you be allowed to use the resort if you dont even stay there?
In short : I would never recommend this resort for a family.

  • Liked — The cottages amidst the coconut palms and the swimming pool appeared very pretty
  • Disliked — The management should maintain the ambience of the resort and not allow big groups to party with loud speakers.
