Ideal Beach Resort

Mamallapuram | First Class

With its own private beach on the Bay of Bengal, just outside the historic town of Mamallapuram and within easy reach of Chennai, the Ideal Beach Resort is a comfy option, with lots of family-friendly facilities...

Guest rooms face the gardens or out towards the sea, all with porticos or balconies for sitting out on, and are decorated with dark wooden furniture which is traditional and classic rather than contemporary in style. King or twin beds are available in most rooms, and suites offer spacious family accommodation.

Sri Lankan and Indian cuisine is the speciality of the restaurant, with super-fresh seafood a highlight, cooked alongside other global cuisines. Eat inside under the curve of the lofty restaurant ceiling, or take a table outside on the wide lawn that separates the resort from the beach – you can star gaze while you dine. There’s a lunch and breakfast buffet, with the breakfasts particularly generous and diverse, and a poolside bar offers drinks and snacks.

The resort’s beach is furnished with huts and hammocks for you to laze in, and to deepen your sense of relaxation and well-being, visit the Ayurvedic massage centre. If you’re travelling with children, there is lots to keep them busy here, from swimming in the pool, which has a kids’ area, to tennis, cricket, chess and beach volleyball.

Welcoming staff and a can’t-be-beaten location right on the beach are the standout features of this resort.
