Palm Beach Hotel & Resorts Beach Road, Visakhapatnam
Refreshing authentic experience
by Jeff M on Feb 20, 2016
Really enjoyed our stay at this hotel and ended up really making the most of our time there. In a world of homogenised global hotels, the Palm Beach offers a little more of the colour and romance of an authentic establishment. All the essential amenities of modern life are there, WiFi, flat screen TV etc, but set within the context of a beautiful 'bungalow-style' setting, with pool, gardens and gate to the beach. Though it is an older building than its neighbours, but excellently maintained....the best of both worlds perhaps. Many rooms have their own outside space, and there are anyway a number of communal areas in which to relax. Nice breakfast too, also with something for the westerners, which I really appreciated at the time of day when familiarity matters most. Above all, the staff really seem to care, and as befits the local culture, are pleasantly friendly and helpful. Book early though, as it seemed the hotel was a hot spot for celebrations and VIP bookings. In summary I would say the team at Palm Beach helped make our vacation memorable, such that we missed the hotel as soon as we had transferred to our next destination. Hope others reading this get to experience the same.
