Positive Reviews

Peaceful location near beach

With a peaceful atmosphere and serene views of the sea, the property is the best pick for a place to relax. Guests mention that the surroundings are filled with lush greenery and perfectly laid out facilities. Moreover, the beach is just a few minutes' walk away from the resort.

Amazing private beach and pool

The private beach and pool area are highly regarded by reviewers. According to them, these facilities are well-maintained and in good condition. Quick getaways under the sun have never been more exciting for visitors in this resort.

Excellent staff performance

Serving guests with a friendly air while maintaining professionalism, the staff are reported to deliver an outstanding performance. Guests could not fault the hospitality and helpfulness of the staff, who go way beyond their way to accommodate requests and needs.

Negative Reviews

Far from central Puducherry

Although it is close to the beach, the resort is a bit distant from Puducherry’s places of interests. Shops, restaurants, and other attractions are far away, which requires travellers to use their vehicles. To make matters worse, the approach road to the resort is reported to be poorly maintained, making it something of an adventure to get to and from the property.

Need to improve food service

Visitors are not impressed with the food served at the resort. They say that the meals offer nothing special, since the options are of the usual kind and repetitive. Moreover, the taste and overall quality of the food is below expectations.

Hit-and-miss Wi-Fi service

Guests often complain about the problematic Internet connection. According to them, the Wi-Fi is not working properly most of the time, with slow speeds and intermittent stability.
