In the last of three resort reviews of properties in-and-around-Chennai, perfectly-curated for the ‘quick getaway staycation,’ we head to Four Points by Sheraton Mahabalipuram Resort & Convention Centre, tucked away on the outskirts of Mahabalipuram — close enough to the heritage town and yet far away enough to give you your peace
and quiet.

What catches your attention first about the property is the space. The wide, open, large, empty breathing space! When your eyes, nose and ears are satiated with city life, these open spaces perfumed by frangipani blooms that scent the air — can be the best thing you can ask for.

Designed like a golfers retreat sans the golf course, the property caresses you with its smooth design — nothing too loud or too pretentious. The rooms, beautifully spaced, offer you privacy and views that are pleasing to the soul. That and the fact that buggies are at your disposal in case you feel too lazy to walk.

The rooms are tastefully done and the pool is the highlight of the property — that and the cute kitchen garden that the property is doing up. This property is meant for a relaxing weekend. A weekend that can have its ups and downs — visits to nearby Mahabalipuram interspersed with lazy afternoons sprawled beside the pool.

And the food! The food is definitely a huge plus point at the property. The Pitstop Lunch is an elaborate buffet catered to drive-in customers and features interesting North Indian specialities courtesy a resident Maharaj (cook), and the social-distancing-friendly ‘Marriott-on-Wheels’ menu designed for home delivery within 30Km radius from four points Mahabalipuram”

We’d definitely suggest this property for that unplanned quick staycation getaway and take our word for it when we say that you will return to your mundane city lives, absolutely refreshed.
