Perched along a scenic coastal highway, InterContinental Chennai Mahabalipuram Resort repackages beach vacations and serves it with a dose of luxury. And now, these tropical escapades will not only become more immersive, but will be rewarding, too! By Bayar Jain
Tucked away between casuarina groves along a scenic coastal highway, the InterContinental Chennai Mahabalipuram Resort is a scenic property in every right. The beach resort has 105 rooms on offer, including ocean view suites that face the Bay of Bengal. Choose from spacious suites with private balconies opening to sea views, ensuite bathtub, and double vanity; or standard rooms and executive rooms with sunken bathtubs, rain showers, lotus pond or courtyard views.
Several restaurants also find a spot at InterContinental Chennai Mahabalipuram Resort. Head to The Melting Pot to bite into European, South Asian, and Peninsular Indian delicacies. Complete with a floating deck and al fresco seating, this live kitchen restaurant is designed for a meal amid tranquility. On the flip side, Tao Of Peng, a Chinese speciality restaurant, is all about extravagance. Here, the cavernous entrance segues into an enigmatic space that serves Hunan and Canton inspired dishes. The Gatsby Lounge is ideal for a laid-back meal in the company of a live band, Prohibition-style cocktails, and speakeasy vibes. The exclusive KoKoMmo Tiki Shack, located at the resort’s private beach, boasts of a menu ranging from tapas, tropical starters, lux grilled meats, and coastal curries.
A spa, too, seeks refuge here. The Amrtam spa and wellness studio draws inspiration from traditional Eastern medicine and naturopathy to help restore balance of the body. The spectacular ocean-view setting further enhances this tranquility.
