Heavenly, beautiful. Was searching for long time for a proper beach hotel and this I found. Tranquebar is a small place, but when you reach this hotel, you will fall in love at once. The view, the wind, ambience of hotel all make it a best place to visit. Staff is real courteous, always ready for you. Food is excellent.... More

We stopped by Tarnquebar to see the Danish township that has been partially restored and maintained by the ASI. This was the closest restaurant in the vicinity and though the locals warned us that it was expensive we chose to enjoy the experience and so we entered the restaurant. Due to the low traffic and as it is a premium... More

The location is spectacular and there is a quaint charm to this property. The town is very small and used to be occupied by the Dutch ages ago. The best way to enjoy this would be to do nothing at all. Long strolls by the sea if one can and if not then just sit back and enjoy the views... More

The Neemrana, as always, is the best place to stay in this gorgeous town. Beautiful location, right on the beach, lovely rooms and good food. A great place to stay, read books through the day and explore the town in. The evenings. Do also check. Out the other Neemrana property here called The Gatehouse. If here, also plan a visit... More

A 350-year old bungalow that once housed the collector was renovated with 6-8 rooms. It is a high end resort with all kinds of amenities. We went with two little boys and they just thoroughly enjoyed the place. It was flanked by temples and a short drive from Thirukkadaiyur where lots of families perform 60th, 70th and 80th birthday ceremonies.... More

One cannot miss but notice all the history hidden in this place. A great place to just sit and enjoy the English break fast and listen to waves. The bungalow is just at the edge of the beach. I didn't stay here but visited their restaurant for breakfast.

The hotel has breathtaking views of the sea. The hospitality of the staff is really good and they take extra measures to ensure that their guests are satisfied. It's a kids friendly place and the food is also really tasty. Their fish keema dosai and the tharangambadi fish curry is very good and a must try.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The restored Bungalow stands as a reminder of a Danish Admiral, Ove Gjedde, sent by the king of Denmark with two ships. They were well received by the Nayak ruler of Tanjore, and given this territory. Then Dansborg, the Fort of Tharangambadi – a solid example of Scandinavian military architecture was established to export pepper to Denmark. The oldest Lutheran church in India was built here in 1706.Today you can drive in through a beautiful gate of the majestic King Street, past Lutheran churches and grand bungalows of the Danish Governors’ and the British Collector’s residence. Re-live marine history; visit the temples of Kumbakonam and Tanjore. The town remains a glorious tribute to architecture from across the world.Tranquebar is reputed to have the thickest ozone layer in India which is ideal for relaxation as it rejuvenates and helps all those who visit prolong their life. Facing full east, The Bungalow on the Beach gives guests their own encounter with the sun and sea breeze. Time becomes irrelevant when you stand facing the sunrise: a 14th century Pandya temple on your left and a 17th century Danish fort to the right.Come taste ‘eternity’ in a stopover! ... more   less
