Samyama is situated on the beach in a garden setting. The house was designed to be light and airy with doors and windows 11 feet high. Wake up to the sound of the waves and the early morning birds' chorus.<BR><BR>Samyama will not disappoint you. One enters through tall majestic doors into a marble foyer where the afternoon sun streams through the magnificent stainless steel and glass dome above, your eyes are drawn to the mahogany staircase curving its way up and you sense all tension melting away.<BR><BR>The large sitting room with cool marble floor opens on to the veranda from which you can watch the fisher men bringing in their catch at midday or luxuriate in the stunning sun sets.<BR><BR> Samyama offers you luxury, total seclusion and tranquillity. Your experience here will revive, restore,... Read more

The beds and bathrooms were ok, a few of the showers were leaking, in one of them it wasn't possible to hang the shower head, but I was already happy to have warmish...

Management response:

I have read your review: 1. Firstly I did not know who you were because Samyama was not let to you. Your father (as I now understand it) only rented Samyama and did not book or paid for any services what so ever. .Samyama is not a hotel, or B&B..You should have bought your own food and prepared them yourselves....
