Just wanted to take a short relaxing break with family and staying in Chennai, resorts in ECR were the obvious choices. Checked the availability, most of them were sold out due to Christmas/holidays. However, managed to get a room in this property. Booked through Travelguru portal, redirected from Tripadvisor. The booking procedure was easy and simple. Check-in was at 14:00hrs, we arrived at around 15:30hrs and we were welcomed with cold towels and welcome drink. The check-in formalities were over in about 5 minutes and were directed to the room. The room was good and nicely done. Good wooden furnishing and had a view of the swimming pool from a distance. The �Sea-view� room was just as what the description says :) a view of the sea from the room, far away though. The mini-bar was well-stocked with some beer, spirits and snacks. Somehow these old buildings, renovated with furnishing from �those� times doesn�t impress me much. I would rather prefer brand new fittings, furniture, etc. That�s my preference, of course. We stepped out to take a look of the property, and the swimming pool was very good and was obviously busy at around 16:30 hrs. We had a look at the beach and the bay view restaurant beside it. A nice private beach, lifeguards and security were alert. We took a ride on the battery-operated vehicle and went around the resort and it was enjoyable. They have about four or five of them to escort guests between their rooms and the main building. Some rooms can be far away and might take about 5-10 minutes by walk. Swimming pool was in general well-maintained, however, some light fittings here and there were loose. There is a bar counter beside the swimming pool. I didn�t order from there, but I presume they serve pretty much everything as in the bar. Kids playroom was closed around 19:30 and it would have been good if it was open for longer. We had dinner and breakfast the next day at Seagull. The attention to detail in service could have been better in the restaurant. Next morning, myself and my son took a bicycle ride around the property and that was fairly good. There were some activities like fish-feeding, tattoo-painting, balloon-sculpting and that was good and kept the kids busy. We checked out around 12:30hrs and the check-out was normal. Overall, it was definitely a very enjoyable stay in this place, but it wasn�t out of the world as I would expect from a name like Taj. Of course I would visit again and recommend it to friends. Seagull restaurant: we ate twice in this restaurant, a dinner and a breakfast the following morning. Overall, the taste of each and every dish was wonderful, no complaints whatsoever. However, there are a few very minor incidents that were not-very-pleasant and probably could have been avoided. I wouldn�t expect a used/stained table napkin in a 5* property, for that matter, anywhere. The table mat and the glass mat had a stain too. Obviously the table hadn�t been cleaned properly. When we pointed it out, the waiter apologised and replaced it with another one. Okay, we could ignore it as oversight, but in places like these, they should be doubly careful isn�t it? The next morning, we came in very late for breakfast, around 10:40AM, after completing all children�s activities like fish-feeding, tattoo-painting and so on. I was told the buffet is going to close in ten minutes. Normally it is until 10:30AM, and being Christmas, it was open for a little longer. Since the buffet was anyway not included in my room-rate, I wasn�t too keen, instead, I was thinking of going � la carte. It took me a while to get this information, get a table and settle down for � la carte, until the manager or someone in-charge came and explained this to us. The waiters looked completely lost, probably unsure of what or how to say the buffet was closing. We were not seated yet, but a couple of waiters asked us if we wanted Masala Dosa :) and that the buffet was closing !!! I understood they were only trying to help to ensure we didn�t miss anything :) We ordered a few items and wanted just one of them changed to another (while the waiter was still at our table taking orders) and he confirmed it, but we got the wrong item. Again, he was apologetic and requested us to have it, while he would bring the correct item soon. It was nice that he did not charge us for it, but I would expect him to be a little more careful with the orders. Again, probably one off-incident. Now the food :) For dinner, we ordered fish filets in the kid�s menu, Nasi Goreng and Pan fried Paneer. All the three dishes were tasty and with a nice flavor. We ordered a butterscotch tart with caramel sauce and icecream, that was wonderful too. During breakfast, Eggs to order was the best dish in terms of portion size and taste. It had chicken sausages, potato wedges, Egg Omlette/Scrambled Egg with 2 toasted bread slices. Chicken keema dosa was very tasty with a generous amount of keema inside. The coconut chutney was absolutely fresh and yummy. Waffles was just ok, not so great. Aloo Paratha and Gobi paratha were good, but for the same price as the other dishes mentioned earlier, it was less in quantity, could have been at least two parathas in a plate, it was just one and it disappeared in a jiffy :). Fresh fruits was good, but again too little. The food, as I had mentioned earlier, was very tasty!

Being outside Chennai the area is far more peaceful and situated on a nice stretch of beach. I stayed in one of the Sea View Cottages which was absolutely fantastic. The bars and restaurants were all very nice. In short a great hotel, with very good facilities and very friendly staff. Highly recommended to one and all. Sridharities and very friendly staff. Highly recommended to one and all. Sridhar

Good resort with beautiful views Good resort with beautiful views

by Anuja_15 on February 21, 2017

Visited in Feb 2017 with family including 2 young kids. Its about a 1 hr drive from tyke airport and the road is smooth. We had booked Deluxe sea facing rooms. The room size was a little compact but the views from the room of first the pool and then the sea were splendid. The room itself was a little worn out especially the bathroom. Our keycard insert was falling from the wall but other than that it was well maintained. We later visited the sea facing cottages, which though pricier are lovely and on our list for next time. The staff and service was v good, and any requirements in the room were attended to promptly. They were very helpful in preparing food to my 4 yr old daughters taste. Swimming pool was good, kids play area was fantastic, Jiva spa was also v good and cycling around the property was good fun. The overall food at the coffee shop seagull was average. The views from bayview were fabulous. But the best meal we had was at their new restaurant Upper deck. The food, the views, the service and the ambience was all exceptional. Its open only for dinner and they have only 2 seatings , so best to reserve your table as soon as u get there. We had a late flight out and even though the hotel was running full capacity the duty manager went out of her way to accommodate us in another room for the day, which we really appreciate. All in all a great place, especially if going with family. Would love to go again.

Loved the hotel, interior and everyone who worked at the hotel was so nice. Customer service was excellent and so was the food. The staff are very helpful. Loved every bit of it! The location is away from the city, right next to the beach. Very RELAXING!

On the whole, I enjoyed my stay at the hotel. I booked two sea facing rooms in the Deluxe building. The service was excellent in all aspects and very professional. Mr. Thomas by the main bldg, Basera (sp?) and Kennedy at the Seagull, were extremely hospitable. The rooms were comfortable but I expected more from a Taj hotel. The furniture on the patio was worn down and no warning about construction nearby. The restaurant food was good but not as good as it was when I last visited in the early 2000s. The dosas, omelets, vadas and southern-filter-coffee were very good but the chutneys and curries were not. The beaches were well guarded and clean. Made for two beautiful days, sitting by the beach chairs and looking out at the sea. Also, the view from the Bayview restaurant was splendid. The drinks at the bar were very good and strong. On the whole, we had a very good experience and the very good but not excellent rating is based on high expectations for the premium prices paid at the hotel.

Lovely break Lovely break

Blissful stay indeed amidst the well kept flora and fauna. Felt really at home. Very friendly and eager to help staff, Great Food, clean and serene Beach. Nice walk ways, swimming pool and a small indoor game room although not seen many using the same. All Assocoates had a welcome smile and looked happy. Only suggestion is to add more activities, guided tours, boat rides. Overall a gem of a resort for you to forget the world and relax and rejuvenate. Thanks Taj!!

Resort Landscape and rooms were well maintained, except for the bathroom which was foul smelling. Food and beverages provided for in-room dining and in the restaurants were good. Package deal chosen was provided as booked.
