It is a relatively new property with great amenities inside the room and in the hotel generally. The food is great in all restaurants. They also direct access to the beach and a beach shak operated by the hotel as well. The shak is right on the beach and in the evening they put tables very close to the water. The vibe, food, and setting in the shak is amazing. The food in the main restaurant for breakfast and lunch is fantastic as well. The hotel has a well equipped gym as well. The spa is amazing too. The pool is also nice 11M/25m which is really good if one wants to train. There is a nice crocodile bank close to the hotel. The hotel staff was gracious enough to get us a free drop and pick up to the crocodile bank. The hotel is 15kms ( about 20 min drive) from Shore temple and other unesco world heritage monuments in Mahabalipuram. Super convenient and the hotel has paid cab service. What I did not like was the service. Our rooms were not cleaned despite us putting a note for cleaning. We had to call the service many times to get our room cleaned. The hotel was also fully booked so guess that explains. The service during lunch and breakfast was also nothing special. It was still far better than what we see outside of India but having travelled extensively in India, I think the service can get better to match Indian standards. Overall a great experience at this property. I would stay here again and also recommend this to people looking to stay in this property.

My suite was not ready for 2.5 hours past check-in time and I was made to wait. They finally gave me the room at 5:30pm. When I went into the room there was an almost empty roll of toilet paper. When they cleaned the room the next day, they did not replace the toilet paper. When I went to the lounge for the complimentary happy hour, I waited for over 30 minutes after I placed an order and nothing arrived. The lounge was almost empty. I had a reservation for two night, but I was so frustrated by the terrible service that I decided to leave in one night even though I had already paid for the suite. It was an incredibly disappointing experience I would urge anyone looking at this property to go to alternatives like Taj Fisherman’s Cove or Grand Sheraton.
