This has been our fifth time at Dune and we were sad to conclude how much it has lost its original appeal since 2011, our first stay. While the concept still stands, the lack of otherwise much needed maintenance and signs of obvious cost cuttings had a negative impact on the overall experience. On the other hand, while new houses...

We visited here, fortunately just for the one night and I tried hard to find places which looked anything like the website. The whole complex looked very run down, seating in the restaurant was dirty and generally it was just not up to standard. Our room, in the courtyard was best described as a "school classroom of a bygone era"...

I had heard a lot about Dune and was looking forward in great anticipation to a 2-night stay there. The property did not disappoint me. It is really spread out, with a lovely and relatively clean beach bordering it. Filled with beautiful trees and lovely flowers. The swimming pool is small but has a depth of 7 ft. on the...

We were scared during booking basis review comments however, the place pleasently surprised us. This place can easily come among top 5 nature resorts in India. Though I would like to mention that it is not that there are no negatives however, we chose to concentrate on positives as there were many. You must make a visit for creative room...

Although this resort may need some refurbishing and - above all - a more welcoming and service & customer minded staff - the place is still very pleasant for a short stay. The ecological farm is small but lovely, the Spa Centre and yoga class room pleasant with overpriced services (really! You should clearly indicate the additional taxes to be...
