Stay here if you can afford it!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 26, 2006

Unique Quality: Great place to stay, fantastic swim up bar where you can get pretty much anything you would want!

Beach is great too and very clean, make sure you go and eat on the beach too - great setting.

Staff here are fantastic and will fall over themselves to help you. They have something called T & J whereby all members of staff record every comment/suggestion/preference you have and at the end of each day all these comments go on a database which is reviewed by staff. By the beginning of day two all staff in their restuarant knew to bring me tea for breakfast, but to not make it for me as I am fussy and like to make it myself as I like it weak!

Directions: Out of Chennai town

Taj Beach Resort

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 15, 2005

Fisherman's Cove is a Taj Resort. I stayed there for 2 nights in one of the luxury villas. The hotel has regular rooms in the main building and 88 cottages and villas. The cottages, from the outside, seemed a bit smaller than the villas, and didn't offer as much privacy.

Our villa was in a more secluded section of the hotel grounds, on a quieter patch of the beach. We shared a large front lawn with one other villa, and had our own huge hammock, 2 rocking chairs, a lawn chair and a wonderful view of the ocean. The room was quite spacious with a high pitched ceiling that gave it a really airy feel. It had a large bathroom with both a shower and a tub, a sitting area, desk.. mini bar.. all the usual.

We ordered chinese from room service the first night and had it on the front porch. It took a while for the food to get there, but other than the bok choy it was quite good.

We spent the second day at the pool.. literally about 7 hours I think. The pool's great. Its big and has a sunken bar with really great snacks and drinks. This was a holiday weekend, so the hotel was at full capacity. But even though there were a lot of people at the pool it didn't feel crowded. Kids were in a semi-separate area so there wasn't a lot of noise and splashing in the rest.

The hotel has 3 restaurants plus the pool bar. A coffee shop, a mediterranean restaurant, and Bay-View Point, a seafood grill on the beach. I tried all but the mediterannean. Bay-View point was quite good. We had the mixed seafood platter South Indian style, and a traditional south indian fish curry, both very good. Breakfast buffet at the coffee shop was quite big but the food was so-so.. Eggs took forever and everything else tasted sort of blah.

There was an extensive list of activities arranged by the hotel posted in the lobby. Looked like there was some interesting stuff to do.. fishing, yoga, stuff for kids.. Its worth checking out.

I had a massage at the spa on the last day which was alright. The spa facilities were a bit outdated.

Unique Quality: The pool was the greatest feature of this hotel
The beach was very clean

Tip: We called the hotel directly to book a room, which they said were all sold out. We later found one without a problem on expedia.

Directions: About an hour drive from the airport
