We went with another couple. Drove down from Chennai. It took us about 6.5 hours with a couple of breaks for breakfast and lunch. The bungalow, as its name suggests, is right on the beach. Lovely old bungalow, beautifully maintained. It has eight well-appointed rooms, a lovely swimming pool and a good restaurant. Breakfast is complimentary. Lunch and dinner are...

Bungalow on the beach is a beautiful boutique hotel with just 8 rooms each on different, right on the Bay of Bengal. It is an experience to stay here, sleep with the sound of the ocean and experience the tranquility I visited it a few times for lunch and decided to stay for two nights. It is an unique experience,...

Great place, if you wish to stay in peace for some days. Not many visitors come to this place, which he makes it more peacefully and clam. The beach is all empty, hardly you will find anyone there. During our stay, for 2 days, there were in total 5 people on the beach, water is absolutely clean and wild, not...

I stayed here on the 8th of January for a day. The location of the property is very good and I would say it is worth a visit just for the experience considering the heritage and the history associated with it. I stayed in Oldenburg (each rooms have names) which is on the ground floor of the main bungalow. The...

The hotel is right on the beach and across from the Danish fort. The building which houses the hotel is a former governors bungalow and is around 300 years old.The place has been renovated tastefully and has about 8 rooms. The three rooms facing the sea on the first floor are the best though all rooms are good. All rooms...

I had visited Tranquebar on 7th and 8th Jan 2017. The booking was confirmed by the booking office staff Piyasha Auddy. Once I reached the place, I was informed that the booking was made for 7th and 8th December 2017 and currently no rooms are available. Needless to say that I was shocked since I had clearly mentioned and even...

We aren't talking 5 star by any means, but that is the compelling charm of this place. A sleepy old heritage property, which has been lovingly nurtured with no pretention or lack of taste. It's sleepy and faded and sweet. Our room was massive and on the 1st floor (The Crown Prince of Denmark room) - our door opened onto...

After our terrible experience at Neemarana's Hotel de L' Orient in Pondicherry( see review), we were very apprehensive of our next stop at their Bungalow on the Beach in Tranquebar. We were delighted to find that this was so much better.The hotel is excellently located right on the beach, next to the old Governor's House. Since Tranquebar is a very...

This was my third stay at the Bungalow, not because I love it but because of its proximity to Nagapattinam, where I have work. Each time, it seems to decline a bit, this time even more than in the past. The rooms are quite simple. Keeping it spartan and simple is Neemrana’s (the owner’s) way of maintaining this as a...

We visited Tranquebar in December 2016 to get away from the city and all the madness that comes with it. The town is a tiny speck on the map of Tamil Nadu and you can walk the length of it in 20 minutes. There is a Danish fort that sits at southern tip of the town and within it is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Facing full east, The Bungalow on the Beach gives you your personal encounter with the sun, sea breeze and spray. Time becomes irrelevant here when you stand facing a glorious sunrise with : a 14th century Pandya temple on your left and a 17th century Danish fort to the right. Come taste ‘eternity’ in a stopover ! The restored Bungalow stands as a reminder of Ove Gjedde, a Danish Admiral sent by the king of Denmark with two ships. They were well received by the Nayak ruler of Tanjore, and given this territory for trading. Then Dansborg, the Fort of Tharangambadi – a solid example of Scandinavian military architecture, was established nearby to store and export pepper to Denmark. The oldest Lutheran church in India was built here in 1706. Today you can drive in through a beautiful gate of the majestic King Street, past Lutheran churches and grand bungalows of the Danish Governors’ and the British Collector’s residence. Re-live marine history; visit the temples of Kumbakonam and Tanjore. The town remains a glorious tribute to architecture from across the world. Tranquebar is reputed to have the thickest ozone layer in India which is ideal for relaxation as it rejuvenates and helps all those who want to prolong their life. ... more   less
