“Old but Amazing”
Reviewed 26 July 2011

We had a short visit to this Resort. Took the cottage rooms . The place needs to improve on maintenance grounds, but still the location is amazing.
The moment we raised the curtains we had a splendid view of the beach and it was enough to relax and soothe our nerves.
The place has movie shootings happening every now and then.
We went to the lounge on the beach side. Every thing was gr8 about it.
Had a nice short stay

Room Tip: Beachside is gr8

We stayed at VGP golden beach resort because of the brand the VGP group once had. We were running on tight budget this time and this resort was among the economical ones on the ECR road. We booked a sea facing AC deluxe cottage. We found the reception and entrance quite good. But once you go inside, the resort looks like ruins. Utter lack of maintenance is a simple description that we can give for the same.

Everything is under repair, the room quality is bad, the geysers don't work, the AC does not work properly, and the beds/mattresses are old. To add to the woes, the room service and house keeping is hopeless. Every order takes a minimum of an hour and they expect to be tipped for every visit made to the room.

The only saving grace was that the beach is nearby and is relatively clean as compared to the beaches in other parts of the city. We found that 1-2 guys in the Jungle Park restaurant were quite helpful unlike the room service guys.

We visited this resort for one day on Sep 24 '09. We were actually visiting Pondicherry when we thought that we must also pay a visit to Mahabalipuram before we left to Bangalore. That is when we struck upon an idea of staying in seaside resort nearby. Somebody had suggested to us this resort. So ,we had called up VGP to book for two nights of stay and the person made our booking without even taking any down payment. We were a bit uneasy about it. But later realised what a big blessing it was!
As if the hot and humid weather of Chennai wasn't enough of a spoilsport, VGP resort did its best to aggravate the feeling. Since it was so hot and humid we decided that we'll stay here only for one night and the reception didn't make a fuss about our initial 2 night booking we had made on phone, thanks to him:).
First, about the overall property. They have a vast estate but very ill-maintained. There are umpteem figurines lining the whole estate but they look like straight out of a horror movie. There were stray dogs all over the place but not aggressive(thanks to the small mercies), more on them later.
We had taken the sea-facing row-house for Rs.2000(+250tax). The room was big but again ill-maintained. It had a damp smell in it. The bed sheet hardly covered the mattress and kept coming off if we slept on it. There was no blanket in the room. There was one sofa kept there which had holes in it with an old looking cloth upholstery. There was one coffee table with an old and torn rag on top of it. Why even bother covering it, I ask? The A/C had no swing fins! Its remote was not working. The TV did not have a remote. And the channels were all fuzzy-wuzzy-the house-keeping would later explain to us that it is the same for all rooms as a great consolation. There was no drinking water kept in the room.
The house keeping was another nightmare. When we called them up to ask them for water, remote for TV, etc they couldn't speak in english. They knew only Tamil. Other times they were giggling and passing the phone around. When asked for drinking water they said that we could take the water from the garden! Even the room service was lousy. Again only Tamil speaking staff and the food was pricey and greasy.
Nightmare of nightmares, we were shook off our lounging in our room by a thundering sound outside the room followed by a dog's squeals. We thought something big must've fallen on one of those listless stray dogs outside. When I went out and enquired from the house-keeping staff hovering outside the room, we were told that they were shooting down dogs!!! And we were thinking of going out to have our dinner outside the resort. It's another story that we did go out, didn't wanting to bother with their hopeless staff. We saw men dragging a dead dog when were coming back(was I relieved that it was not a dead person or what!) and my younger son kept asking why they were doing so! :( We could hear gunshots until early morning of the next day.
We were glad when it was 8am when we started checking out and fled from the place. Thank god they didn't take money for 2 nights of stay in the first place!

The hotel is a landmark hotel in Chennai,India. It is a 75 years old resort. Good location. Closer than any other resort which is located in East Coast Road. Don't go for anything else other than the pride to have stayed in the resort. The resort has recently renovated few rooms and try to get a room in the renovated rooms. Hope you check out the cultural resort in Chennai,TN,India. You also got a amusement park attached to the resort. Check out the biggest "Dosa" which is a dish in the world.

  • Liked — The cultural heritage hotel and the food and location with amusement park nearby
  • Disliked — Some rooms are old but no problem with that.
