Excellent location. Comfortable stay though a bit expensive for the experience. Bar prices are absurdly high. A glass of red wine ( 150 ml)is Rs 1000 !

Great location, fantastic staff always there to help you. Special mention to Prince. Nithin and Chef Salin and his team at the restaurant. Made use of the business centre which was very convenient. Great food despite the low season due to COVID and how it’s hit the tourism industry. Would always recommend

Travelled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Main draw is that the property on the waterfront, nice view and I could go out for a walk. Inside it was smelly, a bit run down and appears not maintained professionally
