The Relaxing family-friendly atmosphere
The moment you step in the Resort, you will feel a friendly atmosphere.
It’s built on a large stretch of 42 acres and consists of different cottages and sea-facing rooms. Between the cottages is a lot of green space. In the middle is the Olympic sized pool. Some Villas are meant for large Family surrounded by lush greenery on one side and sea on the other side.It brings the beach’s natural beauty into sharper focus.
I stayed in a Sea View Suite. The room was quite large with all kind of comforts. All those daily basic needs were kept inside the room. Exclusive sit-out with a private lawn. You can also enjoy open to sky shower experience.
There was that Rocking Chair which was my favorite place to sip a cup of aromatic filter-coffee while enjoying the lush-green garden view.
One can have their own privacy while enjoying a luxury stay with gorgeous sea-view. There is enough place for kids to play even in each suite.
Every staff member contributes to this honor of maintaining the Resort as one of the best in Mahabalipuram. They happily put their efforts to consistently offer exceptional services.
A 15 Minutes walk to Famous Shore-Temple
Mahabalipuram, the ancient town is world famous for Temples built with blocks of granite. Shore Temple, the star attraction is one of the oldest stone temples in South India. It depicts the ancient finesse of stone-art so be. The best thing is you can take 15 minutes walk on the beach to reach there. It’s so close.
The beach-walk will be more exciting if you plan during the golden hour. What can be more soothing to take a Morning walk with an epic background! The sound of waves perches in the soul and sings the tune without words. You will be mesmerized by that vibe.
Have you tried water walking ever? It’s so relaxing and magical. If you are with your loved one, you should definitely do that. A good brisk walk.
“A Beach Walk is for stretching your legs and your mind ,for looking at Life with newfound eyes”
Shore Temple with its pyramidal structure is the last one to survive out of ‘Seven Pagodas’. The other six are lost in the Sea. It is no more a living temple. At present, Shore Temple is made the background of the Mahabalipuram Dance Festival that held during Feb-March.
Monuments at Mahabalipuram is one of the 16 world heritage sites included in UNESCO world heritage list. You do not have to be a believer to visit these temples. If you love architecture and want to capture them in your camera, these temples are sure to visit.
Rejuvenate with Ayurvedic Spa at Chariot Beach Resort
The Ayurvedic Spa is the best place to relax after the Temple tour. The Icing on the cake is the location of the Spa. It’s literally on the beach. The clay pot at the entrance took my attention. The tiny flowers were so artistic in themselves. That was my first click there.
Treatments are being kept traditional, offering rejuvenation therapy to anti-aging treatment. The popular among them is Shirodhara, an ayurvedic treatment that is designed to heal both mental and physical stress.
The Spa is designed as a Traditional Kerala Wooden House. The interior is rustic immersing you in Kerala Culture. I felt relaxed after that deep tissue massage on the whole body for around 40 minutes. Truly rejuvenating.
If you are staying at Chariot Beach Resort, don’t miss a relaxing Spa Session.
Enjoy the Best Food
I enjoy local food and all those traditional delicacies make me feel a real traveler. I always look for the varieties in food when it comes to a luxury stay.
Starting from Breakfast to Beach-side Dinner, everything was mind-blowing at Chariot Beach Resort. They have a huge variety when it comes to food. Whether it’s Desi or Continental, they maintain the quality and taste to the best.
Chettinad is one of such popular cuisine in South-India that fall into my favorite list. Every day there was few Chettinad dishes which they nailed it to the mark. The mutton was so delicious that I couldn’t stop myself taking an extra serving. So on my last day, I went to meet the Chef to have a talk.
Chef was so generous to share his secret tips to make the perfect Chettinad Masala at home. He emphasized the way of Roasting the spices in the right method.
The buffet spread was quite long. They too had pasta, Lasagne and a variety of salads on the table. The dessert table was always breath-taking for me. But not a single day I could taste all of them ,they have such a large variety.
On the very first day, they arranged a live counter of Bajji (fritters) and Chennai style Chai. It was very impressive to all bloggers.
The arrangement was like street-vendors. I absolutely loved the set-up. Not to be missed those crispy Murukus.
A home away from home ,
that’s what my feeling was at Chariot Beach Resort..A winning retreat on the shores of Bay of Bengal that made my stay extra gleeful.
