The compound is close to the beach which is quite empty. In February, at least, you cannot swim in the sea due to dangerous currents, but there is of course a big swimming pool. The whole compound is quite isolated and the hotel does not have a cafeteria so if you only want a snack there is only the restaurant...

Taj hospitality at its best. Luxurious stay. Lots to do for kids. Great beach. They even upgraded us to a pool villa on request. Needs one more night dine restaurant but all in all a top billing on my list.

The property is one of the most exquisite properties that I have stayed in. Perfect for a 3-4 day getaway. Excellent location and only 1.5 hrs drive from Mangalore international airport. There are a lot of activities in the property to do. I would definitely recommend the Jiva Spa that the property holds.

Special thanks to Ashish and Viva (restaurant service) and Jonathan (buggy boy). Staff were nice and courteous. Where the resort can improve is in F&B especially in the morning breakfast buffet spread which was...
