Another impulsory trip to Pondi and we decided we just needed ot get away from the crowds and spend a quiet and relaxed weekend. Havign told AJ about Kailash many times, this seemed like the perfect trip to be headed there. Gopal at the reception gave us a very good deal :) For Rs4200 per night we almost had th eentire resort to ourselves. The initial room they gave us was facing the entrance, so I quickly asked them to change it to a room with the pool/beach view. They did that, so we had a very pleasant stay! The pool is heavenly, don'tgo with high expectations of the beach. It is not aprivate beach and the fishermen on it don't make it too pleasant. However the sunrise is divinely and a must catch!
Unique Quality: The restaurant is a cute romantic set up with a canopy of bougainvilla at the entrance. We chose to sit in for lunch since it was a bit hot. But evening's outside was divine. They serve some yummm Vegetable au gratin and waited on us with a lot of attention to our instructions :)
Overall in the resort the service is good, no TV in the room but the balcony makes for a great place to spend an afternoon with a novel in hand. Carry your own books though, they don't have any we can borrow.
The galleria is very pricey, not much we can pick there. The good thing though was I forgot my swimwear and was glad to buy some from this store.
An early morning walk to the beach is heavenly, when the sun rises in it's crimson glory the fishermen'd boats in the sea make for some picture perfect moments. However the beach itself is a public one, so don't expect to lounge on the sands for too long!
Directions: Head past the pondicherry cty on the Cuddalore Road, it is after the Chunnambar Boat House, a deviation form the main road onto the left and another 3-4 kms in is the resort
