Resorts in Chennai

Vivanta by Taj – Fishermans Cove
The Fisherman’s Cove is built out of an old Dutch fort. Though, that’s the only thing that can be described as ‘old’ in this 5-star beach resort in Chennai. The rest of it includes trendy restaurants, a plush bar, and a state-of-the-art spa facility overlooking Taj’s private beach. Basically, this is the closest you can come to chilling and relaxing at a spa resort in Phuket or Bali, but without the hassle of seeking a tourist Visa and spending a lot of monies.
Location: Covelong Beach
Tariff: ₹ 8,000/- to ₹ 25,000/-
MGM Beach Resort
There are tons of reasons why the MGM beach resort has been the talk of the town. The sophisticated ambiance, the 88 stellar cottages, and the sprawling lawns are just to name a few. In short, everything about the MGM will make you feel like you’ve checked in at one of the Hollywood-style resorts in Malibu. The kind that’ll remind you of our favorite show growing up, ‘The Suite Life of Zack and Cody’.
Location: East Coast Road, Muttukadu
Tariff: ₹ 7,000/- to ₹ 9,000/-
Ideal Beach Resort
Located on the Coromandel coastline, the Ideal Beach Resort offers awe-inspiring views of the Bay of Bengal. Apart from the views, the resort features an ayurvedic spa, an upscale shop for souvenirs, and a resort-owned Orchid farm in a nearby village. And oh, we know they took a risk when they named themselves ‘ideal’. But considering everything, they seem to tick every little box we could come up with. So we ain’t complaining.
Location: East Coast Road, Devaneri Village, Mahabalipuram
Tariff: ₹ 6,939/- to ₹ 15,103/-
VGP Golden Beach Resort
The VGP Golden Beach Resort has endless things to offer in its humongous beach resort. They’ve got a collection of art pieces for art lovers, a ton of sports activities for the outdoorsy folks, and super comfy cottages for the ones seeking inner peace. Basically, their brochure is as long as one of the despo private engineering colleges who are looking to lure students by using tons of facilities as bait. Though, unlike these colleges, the folks at the VGP deliver on good ‘placements’ too.
Location: No. 5/159, East Coast Road, Injambakkam, 600115 Chennai, India
Tariff: ₹ 3,542/- to ₹ 5,310/-
Radisson Blu Resort Temple Bay
The best thing about the Radisson Blu Resort is their mind-boggling infinity pool. A close second would be the extra-large chessboard with human-sized chess pieces. And yes, it’s not simply for decoration. You can play a game of chess with your bestie by moving those heavy pieces around the chessboard. So along with all that mental exercise, it’s sort of the only chess game that’ll give a boost to your biceps too, check.
Location: 57, Kovalam Rd, Mahabalipuram, Tamil Nadu 603104
Tariff: ₹ 7,800/- to ₹ 10,000/-
InDeco Resort is a heritage resort carved out from a 20th-century British camping site. The resort promotes vernacular architecture, ecological preservation, and local art. In fact, they employ local craftsmen to showcase their skills to visitors, and in turn, provide employment to local communities. As far as sustainable tourism is concerned, the folks at InDeco are doing exactly what everyone should stand up for. So big kudos to them.
Location: Mamallapuram Beach, Mahabalipuram
Tariff: ₹ 3,000/- to ₹ 4,320/-
Mamalla Beach Resort
If you’re someone who’s incredibly savvy about hotel rooms, then look no further than the Mamalla Beach Resort.

Location: Near Kovalam Beach, Mahabalipuram
Tariff: ₹ 3,810/- to ₹ 5,102/-
Sea La Vie Covelong Beach Resort
The ASMR-ish sounds of gushing waves and fresh morning light are what’ll wake you up when you’re staying at the Sea La View Covelong Beach Resort. And once you’re up, you’ll find yourself living in cottages like those French colonies in Pondicherry. Though, unlike Pondicherry, you won’t be anxious while posing in front of someone else’s porch. At the Sea La View, you can literally do it all day given you can book the entire cottage all for yourself.
Location: Sea View Road Next to Covelong Surf School, Kovalam, Tamil Nadu 603112

Grande Bay Resort and Spa
Few beach resorts in Chennai are as luxurious as the Grande Bay Resort and Spa. They feature excellent room service, plush decor, and a 5-star quality restaurant.

Tariff: ₹ 4,778/- to ₹ 6,811/-
Green Meadows Resort
Another one of the best beach resorts in Chennai is the Green Meadows Resort. They’re very well-known in the resort scene for their super hospitality. But the thing that makes visiting this resort a once-in-a-lifetime experience is their pop-up restaurant menu. So thank god, Michelin hasn’t found its way to India yet, otherwise, the chefs at Green Meadow would bag every last star in the known universe. Not kidding.

Tariff: ₹ 2,500/- to ₹ 3,500/-
