Anantya Resort - Banks of Chittar Lake, Kanyakumari, Tamilnadu - A Review

Disclaimer: This is not a paid review, All the opinions are my own. 

I am in my third trimester now and i needed a vacation so bad. I know when the baby arrives i can get no vacation for atleast 8 to 10 months. So i was bugging and begging hubby to take me somewhere. He was too picky and he doesn't want me to travel so long at this time. Finally i convinced him to take me to a near by resort. Anantya Resort is located in the banks of chittar lake in my hometown. It hardly takes 35 to 45 mins car travel to reach there. So he was somewhat satisfied with this place and booked rooms.

Anantya Resorts is located at a distance of 37.2 km from the Green Field Airport and 65.2 km from the Kanyakumari Railway Station. The prominent tourist attractions like Vivekananda Rock Memorial, Thiruvalluvar Statue, Padmanabhapuram Palace, Thanumalayan Temple, Vattakottai Fort and many others are situated in the close proximity to the hotel. 

This is the entrance of the resort, The resort was so peaceful and such a wonderful place to wind up. Loved the ambience and atmosphere. We were surprised when we actually checked into the place, because we never thought that this kind of resorts were in our hometown.

A place to just relax

Their Restaurant, Svaad

Some pictures around the property..

We booked Sadhana Pool Villa which comes with its own private pool and a open air bath area.

As we enter the room, first you see is a warm living room area and in the opposite side there is a dining area too with a coffee and tea station with a small fridge.

This is one of the bathroom from the living room area.

There is a spacious bedroom which has a view of chittar lake..

From the bedroom, it leads to a open air bathroom area which i absolutely adore. Myself and Maha enjoyed many hours soaking in this hot water jacuzzi.

This is the outdoor private pool in our villa..Do i need to say anything more, i think the pictures speaks for itself..

Early morning view, maha totally enjoyed it..

Now coming to the food part, Since i was in my pregnancy situation, my appetite is too low and i didn't have much interest in eating. But for the sake of taking pictures, we ordered some of their dishes from their menu. I would say it was good, i really liked it. 

This is some of the food from their breakfast buffet..

Chole Battura, Idiyappam with Veg stew, Ghee Roast with 3 chutney, Sambar & Medu Vada. Fresh Pineapple Juice & a Fruit Platter.

This is another breakfast platter, Puttu with Kadala Curry, Rava Upma with Onion & Tomato Chutney

We tried few of their soup and enjoyed it so much. This one is a delicious sweetcorn soup which we tried. It was yum.

Lunch which we ordered. Nadan Fish Curry, Potato Roast, Oil Fish Fry

This was spectacular, Pineapple Pulissery, Hubby loved it to the core and i enjoyed it too.

For Tea time, We ordered this onion pakora. Crispy and Yummy

We also ordered French Fries for Maha, so crispy and yum

This is another lunch which we tried another day. Enjoyed Hot & Sour Chicken Soup..

Fish Tawa Fry which was yum, i loved it but hubby was not so keen on this..

Goan Fish curry which was good..

Overall, my experience in Anantya Resort was good, I strongly recommend you to visit there, if you want to take a break from your daily life.
