We stayed 2 nights in this hotel & the 1st day was heavy rain so took more than 2hours from Chennai airport!
But if the road is fine, maybe around 1 hour enough.
Anyway, if you do surfing, it is the best position to stay here.
Surfing school is just next & can rent the board in around 300rps/1h.
This hotel has also many attraction, inside & outside, too.
Room is fine for family, living space & Bed room separate.
& there are cottage type.
Staff are nice, too.
It will be nice time if you want to spend a time in nearby Ocean.
