Location

Chariot Beach Resort 1

When we are taking a trip to a luxurious resort, the location is one of the most important aspects. Chariot Beach Resort enjoys the best location in Mahabalipuram. The resort has its own private beach. Most of the sights of Mahabalipuram are within walking distance from the resort (Although, we recommend taking a car since it can get very hot by 10 am).

On the left side, you can see the Shore temple of Mahabalipuram & on the right side, you can see Kalpakkam Nuclear Power Plant. Chariot Beach Resort is sitting right between the past & the future.

The road to the resort is simple & in a nice condition.

Staff of Chariot Beach Resort

Staff of Chariot Beach Resort

A luxurious resort truly becomes an experience when its staff is polite, attentive & friendly. Fortunately, Chariot Beach Resort scores A on this. The entire staff of the resort is really helpful. Staff at the restaurant got us food & drinks as & when required. They also introduced us to local food with great explanation.

Not only the junior staff but also the seniors are within reach at Chariot Beach Resort. You can always see the manager & other senior staff members if you are having any difficulty. Mr. Anand, Ms. Vijayalaxmi & Mr. Thulasirama were really helpful during our stay.

Room Quality

Room of Chariot Beach Resort

The room is the place where, depending on the person, one stays for the most amount of time during the stay or for the least amount of time. We belong to the latter category.

Our room at Chariot Beach Resort was spacious. It was more than the double size of any luxurious rooms I’ve stayed at. The room was full of essential amenities. Coffee maker, television, mini bar, wardrobe, huge bathroom, and so much more. It also had an open bathroom facility! 😉

The bed was really comfortable & I slept peacefully for 3 nights (Yes, this is really important). Go for the seaside cottages if you are staying here.

Food Quality

The most important thing is food. Chariot Beach Resort has 2 restaurants and 1 bar. The main restaurant is spacious & food the delicious. It had a perfect combination of dishes for both, vegetarians & non-vegetarians.

They also have a sea-food special restaurant which has the most perfect setting as it is situated by the beach. If you are a vegetarian, you don’t have many choices here, obviously!

The bar & its outdoor seating is simply perfect, especially after evening time. Spend your time here talking to people, staying away from gadgets. One can’t ask for a more perfect setting!

Amenities & Activities

Amenities of Chariot Beach Resort

There are way too many amenities & activities at Chariot Beach Resort.

The resort has an Olympic sized Swimming Pool with the perfect depth & temperature (thanks to the hot weather of Mahabalipuram). There’s a kids section as well if you are visiting the resort with small kids.

They also have an area for adventure activities called Neighborhood Activities Zone. If you are in a group, you can compete there over military-style hurdles & other things. It is a fun thing to do.

They also arrange other activities like Catamaran ride, Mahabalipuram sightseeing, and adventure activities.

For wellness, don’t forget to take up their Massages.

Overall

Chariot Beach Resort is a great destination in itself. Mahabalipuram has many things to explore & while doing that, you can enjoy the luxuries of Chariot Beach Resort. It’s the perfect weekend getaway regardless of the city you live in!
