Being a seaside village there are a plenty of resorts that offer accommodation. Tourists can choose between budget resorts and mid-range to semi-luxury resorts.
Few are listed below (from budget to luxurious) :
i) Anutri Beach Resort
ii) Kings Crown Hotel
iii) Aqua Marina Drive In
1. Do not expect much from the mid range hotels as the chefs/staffs are not professionals (Nevertheless, there ain't much to complain when it comes to fish fry and chicken curry!)
2. Try Prawns and Pomphrets for starters for sure.
3. Hotel/Resorts may or may not have the facility of a bar. However, a wine shop is available at the midst of the market.
