Chariot Beach Resorts is one of the most beautiful beach resorts in Mahabalipuram near Chennai. It is just one and a half hour drive from the Airport. This is the closest resort in Mahabalipuram to all the main attractions which are there in that Heritage town. We recently visited the Chariot Beach Resorts as a family to experience the hospitality there. If you want to get a good discount from my side on already discounted rates, visit Chariot Beach Resorts site here and use my code ‘Hrish500‘ there.
We stayed in the Deluxe Chariot Cottage which is a large Cottage with two queen size beds which provides great convenience for not just families but also to corporates who want to give rooms on sharing basis. These rooms are situated closer to the swimming pool and offer a complete poolside experience. It also has an exclusive open to sky shower for a perfect holiday.
The facilities in Chariot Beach Resort include wonderful Wi-Fi connectivity, 24hours room service, in-room tea/coffee maker, Mini bar, electronic safe, hair dryer and of course you also have access to children’s play area and the swimming pool. A family of 4 can comfortably be accommodated in the Cottage thanks to the two queen size beds.
The Chariot Beach Resort is amazingly structured resort with the main building at the starting which opens up on to the lawn where the multi speciality restaurant is present and the bar is also there. Then you have the Olympic size pool and from there you have access to the cottages on both sides. From here, you just need to take short walk to reach the beach.
The Chariot Beach Resort is a tropical paradise with wonderfully laid out cottages and a lot of trees which provide you with natural air. You can relax with a cool drink or cocktail on the many chairs which are next to the swimming pool.
With regards to the dining options in Chariot Beach Resorts, the main restaurant is Kapi, the multi cuisine restaurant which offers not just South Indian delicacies but also coastal and North Western Frontier delights. It is mostly a buffet system but you also can order a la carte.
Just opposite to Kapi multi cuisine restaurant is the bar named as Paanam Bar. It is one ultimate place to unwind and relax with friends, colleagues or family with wonderful cocktails and also very yummy snacks.
Thanks to a lot open spaces in Chariot Beach Resort, you can plan different functions for your friends or families in different parts of the resort. Thanks to being beach side, it cools down quite a bit after 4pm and the starry nights are amazing. Best time to visit would be from September till March.
One of the highlights of Chariot Beach Resort in Mahabalipuram is the Spa right on the beach. It has got wonderful view of the ocean and provides Ayurvedic treatments which are really good for your body and soul. They have got detoxification package, weight reduction package and rejuvenation package.
When you are getting your Spa treatment done, you get a wonderful view of the ocean while your privacy is still maintained. You could also opt for the sea therapies like Head and Shoulder massage, where for one hour the therapist will apply some pressure on the special Meridian on your Head and Shoulder area using Acupressure techniques. This relieves headache due to excess tension and also gives you a session of relaxation.
Chariot Beach Resorts has a private beach which is almost inaccessible to outsiders. You can organise beach marriages or beach activities for your friends or family. Corporates can organise team building activities and also Bonfire on the beach during evening outings.
Chariot Beach Resort is one of the most sought-after locations for corporate outings from Chennai and Pondicherry. You have a lot of team building activities like burma bridge, zipline and tightrope walk.
As Chariot Beach Resorts is just a short walk away from the UNESCO certified monuments like the Mahabalipuram stone Chariot Temple and Arjuna’s penance, it is one of the best locations for you to explore both heritage and nature. I would definitely recommend all my friends to visit Chariot beach Resort for a good beach vacation with family and friends.
