Tranquebar- a historical oddity
We had been planning to visit Tranquebar since a long time and the pandemic finally made it happen. It is a stand alone property with stunning views of the ocean, the Danish fort and an ancient temple. The food and service are great. The areas outside the hotel could be cleaner but the hotel and property itself is very clean and in good shape for a 17 century building.

The property's biggest draw is its location, right on the beach next to the Danish fort. The building is a heritage building which has been beautifully restored, with quaintly named rooms, each of which appears to have a different colour scheme, with antique furniture and 4 poster beds. The staff are always smiling and ever ready to go the extra mile. The choice in the restaurant is good; however we tried the biryani which was not up to the mark, whereas the continental food was very good. Morning breakfasts were very good with a choice of western as well as South Indian dishes. The swimming pol was unfortunately closed and has been since the onset of Covid, but this fact is not mentioned anywhere online. There was a slight musty smell in our room, perhaps because of the very old nature of the building. The bathroom was very narrow, with difficulty in opening the door if there was already someone standing at the sink. In view of its rural location and lack of full 5 star facilities, the property should consider reducing their daily rates.

This is a heritage property where the Danish Governor used to live. The current owners have preserved the old charm. The sea is practically at the doors and the waves splashing close by.

Tranquebar By The Ocean
A wonderful building on the edge of the ocean. An easy place to stay and not leave the grounds. If you do leave there is much to see here. The maritime museum, the estuary has Osprey and White Breasted Kingfishers, plus the Danish Fort. Breakfast at the resort is buffet style and western. If you ask they may serve an Indian breakfast at your request. The rooms have individual water heaters so you will have hot water when you want it. There is AC and ceiling fans in each room. WiFi is weak but they have it. Do use the pool, it is about 4 feet deep and a nice place to relax.
