Food is okey okey not that much great but they will charge rate of 3 star hotel.. Taking all we had a good stay in the resort.

      We had a great stay at the resort. Travelled with my Son, he had a great time playing on the lawn and the swimming pool. It also has a private beach, that a cool stuff isn't? Rooms are decent, since it is closer to the beach, nice breeze was felt throughout. Tented rooms are one of the highlights but need to work on the painting and some gaps were seen between the doors else the rooms were comfortable to stay. Food was ok, may improve there a little bit. Room service was good.

      Kids entertainment ”

      It has a great potential to be the most sort after resort. If could add the following. 1. Kids entertainment, room with a play gym. Outdoor area with slides, dry sand to play, hire a physical educator for kids to have organized play time, while the parents rest. 2. Beach is good for viewing only, absolutely not for swimming, it's dangerous. Arrange beach volley ball, beach lounge chairs and umbrella. Beach toys for kids. 3. Staff is excellent, pay them well and make use of their talent. 4. Too many stray dogs, you can make the property into a pet friendly place. 5. Allow outside food, since the in room dining is not that great for the price or train your existing chef with new skills. You tube is the best trainer.

      Very good place for peaceful vacation and good ambience with sea view. Direct access to sea from 6am to 6.30pm. I had seen bad reviews about this property mainly about the old construction and all. But now there are new tents are built and some are still building with good facilities. Only negative thing is food is costly. One plain rice cost 150rs and small curd bowl cost 90rs. Average ₹500 for one person if you have lunch or dinner from here. Breakfast is available at 210 for one adult if not included in room booking.

      Location and facilities are good. They keep the resort very clean (Except swimming pool, its dirty). Receptionist is very kind. Beach access is very close. Food in their restaurant is very costly and also its not worth for the money. Except food cost and swimming pool, everything is worth.

      A Good Stay at The Ashok Beach Resort”

      We were 2 families that stayed over a weekend (2N) at The Ashok Beach Resort.. It was a pleasant stay , the ambience was good to relax and chill out. The Beach access was good even if not entirely like a private beach. There is ample space adjacent to the beach for a walk or a jog. The pool was good for kids but decent enough for adults as it wasn't deep enough for a good swim. The front desk staff, Archana and Balasubramaniam were quite helpful and prompt in closing out the check-in/check-out formalities. The staff were quite helpful especially Thanks to Mr. Balaji who helped us with a boat ride onto the sea !! .. The Cons.. not many, I would suggest they notch up the premium factor a bit with respect to amenities, toiletries and things like that.. some of the fittings in the room were creaky and the floor mats needs an upgrade IMO. The buffet spread was reasonable but it is good to add Eggs to Order / Dosas to order options ..

      Great stay overall”

      Great location right on the ECR and a very scenic resort you can stay in Pondy. The food is ok and very costly, but you have lot of options nearby. My only con is on the room - The standard tents are not maintained properly and have lots of gaps all around the tent, which makes it easy for insects, lizards and mosquitoes to easily enter into the tent and spoil your sleep. Overall a nice resort to stay to relax and spend quality time with family, and if they can improve on the room quality would be great.

      Good place if you have the right expectations.”

      This may not be a 5 star resort but provides all basic facilities.
