Comments  (English):
We booked the honeymoon cottage at this resort for five days over the New Year. We usually travel on a mid-range budget, so this was significantly more expensive than usual and was intended to be a relaxing highpoint mid-way through our visit to India. Based on all the reviews we had seen, peace, tranquility and great hosts were anticipated.

Things did not go to plan.

There was a local festival running from Christmas through New Year, with loud music throughout much of the night. Sleep was almost impossible in the honeymoon suite which faces the backwater, and also in the alternative cottage subsequently provided. While we can't hold the owners responsible for the festival, they apparently were totally unaware of the event.

Staff were generally attentive. Cleanliness is average, the mosquito nets around the beds had not been laundered for a long time. The two bath towels provided should have qualified as tea towels. The cottages are nice enough, but not good value. The backwater is pleasant when the tide is high. The ocean is quite rough near the resort and much better swimming is available 1km north or south. The food at the resort is repetitive, uninteresting and expensive. Fortunately there are better restaurants in either direction. The WIFI is not functional in the cottages. Alcohol is not available.
