Good envorment well maintained good food and good service Staffs are well trained rooms also specious,next Time I will visit with my family and friends and private beach also near by this property I enjoyed

This is the last property at the end of the Puri Beach. Situated near the estuary of Dhaudia river and Bay of Bengal, the property is secluded with no shops or restaurants nearby. The main beach is not very far, though not walkable. The food is good and the service prompt. The buffet breakfast was decent and the service at the restaurant was great too. You will always feel welcome at the hotel. The property in itself is beautiful with a large pool and view of the sea. I would recommend this for short stays. Also if anyone is looking for calm and quiet getaway, this has to be one of the best hotels in Puri (with the low price tag). Though the property needs upkeep and maintenance at various places, there is nothing which is an eye sore (yet).

rooms stink and are old, room door locks dont work, away from the city so you are stuck, staff has no knowledge, no valet service, dampness in the room, dont stay here, waste of money, lift is dingy waste crap

If u r to cut off from the world this is the exact place Never mobile network is there also out you will find nothing All things are far away from here Also the bar charges are high If u r going to beach or basement u will not be getting networks

I had never heard of this property till I attended a conference here recently. The participants were mostly put up at this property. Here is my honest review: #Location The hotel is located at the very end of the beach strip. In fact the paved road ends about 100m before the property ... which is then connected by a dust road. Basically, you are at the outskirts of Puri, away from all the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas. So if u like peace and quite, this will suit you. Due to its remote location, there are big cellular network problems. Usable data speeds is almost impossible to get as you get only 2G signals in the rooms. The hotel doesnt have wifi. However, there is not much difficulty is making or receiving calls. #Beach The hotel is located on the beach. But wait, the sea and the hotel is separated by a large pond which you have to go around to reach the sea shore. Its a good 300m odd walk. There is no paved way so you have to walk in the sand and you will also have to cross the pond at its shallowest point, where it is reduced to a dirty slush. There are no facilities on the beach. No deck chairs, beach beds, umbrellas ... nothing. You will also not find any vendors who put impromptu tents and chairs or who offer massages ... which are usually available at more busy beaches in Puri. In fact, the beach is absolutely desolate and lonely. There are high chances that you will be the only persons when you visit. On the positive side, the beach is rather beautiful and clean. #Rooms & Infrastructure Be ware that there are two categories of rooms ... renovated and those that are yet to be renovated. Please ask for renovated ones. The rooms which are yet to renovated must be avoided at all costs.The rooms are ok in size and on the higher floors, you get a view of the ocean. The new rooms are also quite well appointed but need some new paint and sprucing up. However, the ACs aren't much affective. Request for a standing fan to ensure you don't suffer in the summer heat. The toilet has standard amenities but the showers are really weak. There is a large sized swimming pool which is clean and well maintained. The lifts, especially the manual ones are a little scary to ride. #Room Service & Food Breakfasts are a standard affair ... with enough variety. Restaurants serve good food, including Italian, Chinese cuisines ... lots of options. The restaurant is nothing great but I had nothing to complain too. If u stick to standard orders ... you wont be disappointed. Same applies to the Room Service. #Service Inspite of many drawbacks, the staff here does well and this is where they score. I had a issue when they put us up in one of the old rooms but they changed my room when requested. I struggled with the AC and had to make multiple calls to the reception ... they handled it gracefully each time. Therefore, the service is good and it is the redeeming feature of the property. #Conclusion This hotel has beautiful architecture but needs to fix the infrastructure as well as the issues with access to the beach. A good strategic investor could turn around the fortunes of this property. As long as I can get a room at Mayfair or Jamindar's Palace ... its unlikely I would visit again. But at the price point they offer ... this place is not a bad deal.

The rooms were not up to the mark as expectations were high having paid 9000 per room per day without meals.The toilets in the room need major renovation and the air conditioning at the lobby and conference room are totally unsatisfactory. We were made to wait till 10:30 am for check in and although our conference programme schedule said check out is at 9 am , the hotel staff kept on disturbing us time and again for check out from 7:30am. The hotel is ill equipped to host a conference of such a magnitude.The food was the same at every meal.There was no variety. Overall the experience was bad.

Food quality was good otherwise everything just like staff behaviour and specially reception staffs are not well behaved to the tourist.room service isn't good.equal to price there is nothing in the hotel.

This place is amazing in all senses. The hotel is very good and the property is well maintained. The food served was good too. We had buffet dinner. Moreover, there was no cheap crowd as such. Great resort!

STAYED WITH MY FAMILY AND MY SISTERS FAMILY FOR 2 NIGHTS ON 22ND DEC 2016. it all started from the time we check in. their bathroom, smelling, leaking and no WATER in shower or toilet. In spite of complaining in writing at the reception and asking for a room change they do not provide any heed. Next their restaurant, they will only not provide service at all , in spite of ordering food for more than an hour, no food on the table, their so called floor manager who comes to talk to pacify us, does not even have a courtesy to say sorry i am not able to help, and he just keeps us waiting and the person is gone. THis hotel should not be considered as a star hotel just by is construction, it does not even have basic facilities and should be down graded to no star. i was not the only person complaining, every second person was complaing from the time we checked inn and till we checked out. Management is worthless.
