One doesn't have to be a Tamil Nadu legislator to choose the Golden Bay Resorts at Kuvathur as a hideout from all the chaos in life. Situated about 80km away from Chennai on the ECR, the Golden Bay Resorts has been in the news since around 130 (and dwindling) AIADMK MLAs were herded there by party general secretary V.K. Sasikala.
But the resort was on the radar of techies in the city even before the AIADMK power tussle brought it to headlines. Here's some of the material comforts that makes this resort one of the top picks for winding down.
The resort is spread over 6 acres on the backwaters and boasts of a floating restaurant, Aquana. It is ideal for parties. The Golden Bowl Restaurant offers deck dining and garden dining. The banquet halls are perfect for huddles and brainstorming.
The resort offers rooms ranging from Rs 5,500 to 9,900 per night. And that isn't all. There is a well-equipped spa that offers a wide range of treatments including Ayurveda massages. They also have a gym, a sauna, steam bath and a health club.
The proximity to the water allows for a range of water sports. One can go boating, and try hands at jet skiing also. The water-roller is sure a stress buster. And if someone is feeling a bit low on spirit, then they can try their hands on the all terrain vehicle, which would give some serious rise to adrenaline levels.
