Historical Splendour

Marakkanam is a quaint little town tucked away amidst a pristine scenic surrounding. The Alamparai Fort dating back to the 17th century adds a regal historical touch to the locale, while the salt pans enhance the natural beauty of this village, thus making it an ideal getaway for a romantic or quiet holiday. The Alampara is spread over 50 acres dotted with secluded lakes and lagoons, besides eight acres of the private sand bar.

Amazing oases of peace and tranquility right at the doorstep of Chennai and Puducherry. We enjoyed our lunch with a great view of the laguna. To work up an appetite before you enjoy the lovely cuisine here in Alampara, there is a variety of water activities to choose from, ranging from wakeboarding to Kayak and even windsurfing. I dare say this is one of a kind in this region of Tamil Nadu and definitely worth the visit, even for a daytrip but best experienced with at least an overnight stay in one of the luxury tents that are spread over this beautiful place.

Subbu Venky

Outstanding Experience! This is an easy getaway, a two-hour drive from Chennai city. We arrived on a Saturday and spent the day trying out Alampara's water sports. The access this resort has to the backwaters is just excellent and makes it so easy to try windsurfing and knee boarding. Food was locally sourced seafood, excellent Prawns, and Mussels. The night was spent in their standard tents - Super comfortable and spacious. The next morning we used the resort's cycles to travel around the property. The highlight of this resort is the access they have to their OWN BEACH! A must-visit for anyone visiting Chennai!

Balaji Ranganathan

This is hands down one of the best resorts between Chennai and Pondicherry. The tent accommodations are five-star luxury nestled between the backwaters of the Bay of Bengal. You will see several exotic birds as your fellow residents. The property manager treats you like family ensuring all your needs are taken care. We also went kayaking and stand up paddling with in the property on day one. The second day we went knee boarding in the backwaters and it was an experience of a lifetime. Our sincere thanks to the staff and management for bringing Bali to Chennai.
