We were visiting mahabalipuram on our recent trip to India from Philadelphia and absolutely loved our stay at the villas in Silversands. This peaceful serene little resort is tucked away from the hectic world outside and it is a perfect get away if you are trying to unwind and relax.. it doesn't have too many of the touristy gimmicks and...

This place is great. It is one of the original resorts here and the owner has let it show its age, in a very good way. You will not find typical tourists here, yes please, no commercialized, fake accommodations. Nothing but a real, authentic experience, without any of the real world craziness that sits just outside. The food is very...

We books 3 rooms, checkin was smooth, but they dont have reception !! They have a couple of guys sitting under a hit at entrance and they handle checkin which...

7 acres with only 10 cottages. Now that's a luxury in today's world. Very helpful staff. Vegetarian food is great. U can order non veg from some of the restaurants next door. They deliver. The infinity pool is perfect. And the beach is very neat and clean.

One of the oldest beach resort establishments in the area. Very peaceful and offers all the amenities to enjoy a peaceful and yet pleasurable stay. The beach here is also very clean. Just one km from Mahabalipuram with many eat out options nearby, so you are not compelled to eat within the resort. The swimming pool is well maintained and...

I was tired of the city madness, traffic and noise; so I decided to take a break and stay somewhere peaceful and away from city life. Booked it online on MMT, and got some good discount as I'd also booked my flight from them. It is around 1.30 hrs drive from Chennai Airport. As I reached there, a man escorted...

I traveled with my husband and I booked this place online, despite the mixed reviews. The first thing that struck me, was the space. Right from the highway till the beach and they managed to keep it to just a little over 10 cottages. The individual cottages are done in old style - might have been old houses redone. The...

Stayed in Silversands resort with family. Excellent place and well maintained. Sprawling village themed campus and well spaced cottages gives a very relaxing ambience. Clean swimming pool close to beach , security personnel monitored private beach enabling us to spend time close to waves any time are highlights of the resort. The cottages are clean and staffs are courteous. Since...

Stayed here for 2 days as part of large group of friends and family, and stayed in the cottages(only cottages are available here). The cottages are decently spread out, and afford good privacy if you desire so. The walk to the beach from the last cottege is challenging in the peak summer time, but not more than 5 mintues. The...

Although there are several beach resorts dotting the coast line as you drive from Chennai to Mahabalipuram on East Coast Road, I chose Silver Sands for a single reason - price. This was the cheapest resort I could find on this stretch. Though this resort is nearly 25 years old (I think so), never had an occasion to visit this...
