beachfront hotels in chennai

Hello everyone,

I am visiting Chennai later this month and looking to stay in a beachfront hotel. I am arriving late in the night and want stay closer to the airport. Does anyone have any recommendations? If there none available closer to the airport, I might settle for one with a good view of the ocean.

Thanks in advance.

Hi most people head to Mahabalipuram that is about 1/2 hours from the airport. There are many beach from rooms there. you can see some photos here http://mahabalipuram.info

Dear Jebamani,

I am afraid the airport is far from the sea front and you may not have any ocean front hotels. Most of the beach front hotels and resorts are on the ECR (East Coast Road) which are quite far (min of 20 kms) from the airport. You may check out for some hotels from Besant Nagar and proceed further for some ocean view apartments or guest houses. If the travel time of 45 mins is okay for you, then you will have abundant options on the ECR.
