Suddenly decided to drive down to Puri over the weekend 24th to 26th March. Just wanted to check how good a long drive is in my Honda City SMT. The drive is just fantastic barring some traffic at the toll gates which we experienced on our way to Puri, however, the return was smooth. We completed the journey both ways approx in 9 hours with 3 breaks. While surfing the net for a good place to stay in Puri, came across Coastal Villa and decided to check it out. The Tripadvisor reviews I read before booking matched exactly in-toto. Its a bungalow with 6 rooms, well furnished, good quality toiletteries, very close to the beach. The property is new and very well maintained. Food is served from the main kitchen, hot and on time. Our room tariff included a sumptuous breakfast. Lunch and dinner had to be pre-ordered which we did and Mr. Debu, the Property Manager was an excellent host taking care of all our needs. The daily cleanliness and upkeep is taken care of by dear old Ronju-da, and elderly and caring housekeeper, All meals were of high quality, very hygienically prepared and tasty hence, we just did not eat out. Even our temple visit was arranged by Mr. Debu. The attitude is just "ask" and you will be "assisted". Very rarely experienced these days. Besides, the sweets that we ordered with Mr Debu which are prepared in their kitchen and carried back to Kolkata were delicious and liked by all. It is indeed a home away from home. Just wish that it remains so in the long run, Its a good place to chill out with family or friends or just alone for some quiet me-time..
The delicious taste of the food served still lingers in the mind and reminds coastal villa every now and then. Regarding the taste of the food we may say that salt proportion was optimum. Food was cooked well, well garnished,served hot and looked attractive. Moreover sea fish preparation was special with mustard,cashew nut powder and poppy seed. The regular meal and special dish,were all alluring.. The unforgettable taste would attract visitors to the place many times or whenever we feel like having dinner beyond our home.
