  • We a family of 28 came here for New Year. WOW! What a wonderful time we all had! The saltish smell of the sea! The waves dripping with foam! The Bungalow on the Beach, The Nayak House and the Hotel Tamil Nadu! Lovely! Thanks to all the staff! Food was delicious! We’d love to come back again.

  • Our second visit to Tranquebar inspired in us by reading Georgina Harding’s “Tranquebar- A season in the South”. We have enjoyed number 5 Goldsmith Street, and good to see the house so sympathetically restored, with helpful but un-intrusive staff. “The Bungalow on the Beach” by contrast is more of a Colonial/Western enclave with the exclusivity to match! Us poorer tourists prefer the integrity of the Nayaks!

  • We had a lovely time in this very cool relaxing bungalow on the beach! It was very nice to be able to come back and relax after a long day in the sun. We, a family of 6, found it just perfect! P.S. The food was amazing at the Non-hotel hotel!

  • A lovely place to stay- very relaxing. The rooms are thoroughly appointed, the staff is outstanding, the food is delicious. We stayed for 3 days and would have loved a longer stay. I’ve stayed at the Neemrana hotel in Pondicherry and this compares very well. Thank you for a wonderful weekend.

  • A very enjoyable stay. The ideal place to stay whilst working in the area. Returning to the peace and quiet after a busy day with only the sound of the sea. With pleasant and helpful staff always on hand for your assistance. Also excellent food to enjoy every day and served with a smile. I will return.

  • This Neemrana property is the piece-de-resistance of all their stunning “non- hotel” Hotels. As always the ambience, room décor, attention to detail and the exemplary staff and management are most memorable. Would love to come back.

  • We very much enjoyed our stay at the tranquil Bungalow on the Beach. The staff’s hospitality and helpfulness stood out. They went at great lengths to make our stay a real pleasure. I also would like to write a word of praise for the kitchen staff. The menu is varied and everything we tried was very tasty. I specially recommend the Chef’s beetroot halva.A memorable place, to be recommended for all those who want to escape from India’s hustle-bustle.
