“A very good place for water sports”
We stayed in this place During Nov 2012. We loved this place. First of all location is superb, quite secluded. The beach is very clean. I must thank all of their staffs. They do have a good range of water sports. And beyond the range, the most important aspect was that they follow safety guideline to a pretty good extent which in India is mostly overlooked. We were not allowed to go to sea without life jacket. And most of the time life guards were present and not just sitting on the beach. I really appreciate this attitude towards safety. Also all the water sports equipment and life jackets were of very good quality. I have visited another resort nearby within a month where the difference in quality and the attitude towards safety struck me and I appreciated this resort even more. Also they really take care of the guests very well. The staffs are extremely helpful and caring and always watchful on the sea activities. Since it was Diwali weekend they had invited a rock group for live music during dinner. It was a very nice idea. And last but not the least we are non-vegetarian but we did like the vegetarian food served here. I would certainly like to visit the place again. Just keep up the spirit.

“Visit to Sai Vishram resort”
It was a year end outing with family and the stay was excellent. The kids enjoyed it thoroughly. Hospitality is excellent, well mannered staff, excellent vegetarian food, good water sports and absolutely no hidden costs whatsoever. Boat cruise is a must do not miss.
“The best place to get pampered on a holiday!!!”
I had been to this resort with my family for a holiday. Had a wonderful experience. I stayed in the tent houses on the beachfront. The ambiance was clean and well maintained. Had loads and loads of fun playing in the beach. The word 'private beach' really has its meaning there. The staffs are very courteous... Lovely food. And if you want to get pampered on a holiday, this is the place. Enjoyed every moment there!!!
“Our New Year holiday”
Excellent resort for people who like efficient (but non-intrusive) service, great property and less crowd. The biggest advantage is vegetarian food - very well prepared & served. Similarly, the boating & dolphin rides are of excellent quality. It was an all-inclusive price and there were absolutely no hidden costs.

“Experience for the whole family”
My family and I stayed at Sai Vishram for 2 days. The resort is placed in a scenic location. The kids enjoyed the water activities. We had a hike to a sunrise location which was very beautiful. The service is brilliant. The people are very friendly and responsive. The food was excellent, with a wide variety of dishes. Overall it was an amazing experience. Stayed January 2013, travelled with family.

“A Visit during Christmas holidays.”
Sai Vishram is a fully vegetarian non alcoholic beach resort. We were there on 26th and 27th of December 2012 for the second time as a family of five. Their holiday package included accommodation, food, water sports, kid’s activities and choicest cultural programs. They took very good care of us when we were there.
Accommodation: As we were an odd numbered party, we initially booked 2 AC rooms with an additional cot in one of them. But once we went there, they upgraded us to 1 AC Room and 1 Cottage (for 3) for the same cost so that all guests were accommodated comfortably.
Food: Their food is simply yummy. This I would say was a very important reason for us to revisit them.
Water Sports: The beach attached to the resort is maintained well. We spent enough time swimming in the tempting sea water. Water rides such as Banana boat ride and sea kayaking were complimentary in our package. For safety in the sea, they always insist on safety jackets and the guard there ensures that all guests are safely enjoying their stay.
Kids Activities: There had brought in instructors for painting, sand art, clay modeling etc to keep children engaged in the afternoons. My niece (8 years old) loved these sessions a lot.Cultural Programs: They had invited several good artists who entertained us with live music, yakshagana, etc.

“Great retreat at Sai Vishram”
I have been to Sai Vishram twice once in 2009 and again in December 2012. It has been an amazing experience to be there. This resort is Vegetarian & Non-Alchoholic resort. The staff is very hospitable and the facility is excellent. The beach is clean & safe with lot of life guards. With kids, you will feel safe even to allow them in beach without parents being there - we really did that. Many water sports like Jet Ski Ride and to sight Dolphins engage you at least for few days.
There are no televisions at the rooms which I think is a great plus. This really makes sure that quality time is spent with family.
“A small paradise”
We arrived at Sai Vishram in the middle of December 2012, directly from Europe and we were very tired but immediately we understood that the place had something special. The room are simply but very clean, the food is very good, the garden and the beach are very beautiful, it's full of flowers everywhere, but above all the staff is so kind that we were really surprised at the beginning, because is not easy to find people with such a great heart, kindness and devotion to the customers. They did all the best for us.
Life at Sai Vishram is pure relaxation, following the rhythm of Nature, only surrounded by the music of the sea, birds chanting and Temple's sacred sounds. It's really a place to stay for a while if you are around there and you really would like to escape from Indian general chaos.
“Amazing experience Sai Vishram”
I visited SVBR with friends in last week of December. Overall it was one the best holidays. The resort is a vegetarian only, non-alcoholic resort and the resort management mean it. After visiting several beaches for first time really ventured and swam in the sea thanks to Sohan and his team. Very courteous staff, wonderful arrangements at the beach. The food was very good. Overall it was a wonderful experience and good value for our money.

“Sai Vishram for all ages.”
I went on a 2 day 1 night visit to SAI VISHRAM with my family and relatives. All of us had a very good time there! My cousin and I had gala time making use of all the water sport facilities such as water scooters and the early morning dolphin sighting boat ride. We even swam back to the shore from the boat. The life guards where there for our safety and we also had life vests on. While we were having a good time here my grandmother was well taken care of by the very friendly and courteous staff! One of the staff made her a cup of coffee noticing her sitting alone on the beach. I am a non vegetarian but while I was there I dint really miss anything though I usually enjoy non vegetarian more. All the meals had a big spread of vegetarian food and desserts. I recommend this resort for people of all ages may be for relaxing or for a fun filled adventures holiday!
“A destination for all ages”
For a hardcore non vegetarian like me this place needed lot of convincing initially. We visited first en route to Goa in 2004. Since then we have been visiting this place at least once a year and have seen the resort evolve into something interesting every single time. Dec 12 was our daughter’s first visit- she is just over a year old and the sense of security this resort provides made us feel confident to bring her along. There's a lot to say so here. We were surprised when we saw toys kept in our rooms.
A simple khichdi for the baby was made differently every time. They need not have bothered, but they were so happy doing it in spite of a full house. I was impressed. My 5 year old son was thrilled when he saw the cycles... Before we know they had parked one outside our tent. The musicians played nursery rhymes. Our son was so happy! Our son learnt to float in the sea without having to hold anyone (with life vest). With the kids one can't attend live shows. There was one every night and I saw more shows at the resort than in an entire year here. Yakshagana, saxaphone, light music, beat boxing, I didn't want to leave.
Jumping off the boat, kayaking, body boarding they made us feels like we own the place. I mentioned to the staff that the stand fans are a little unsafe as my baby's fingers go through the grills-I couldn't believe it when I saw the fan covered with a mosquito mesh cloth! It's just these little things that we remember and talk to our friends about. I'm sure there is more that I can think of, but I will add after my next visit!!

This December 2012, has been our second visit to Sai Vishram, the first being in December 2010. Sai Vishram is a place where one goes to forget all the rigmarole of the day to day life and its associated activities. It is complete relaxation, not only for the parents but for the kids too. Although v r pure non-vegetarians, it was never missed as the vegetarian menu is simple yet exotic. Fun at the beach, starting with the dolphin watch to swimming in the water amongst the waves or the Jet Ski rides or the banana boat rides is a thrill that I feel we have never experienced at any other resort. The entertainment organised this year round was more varied and had a mix of an Indian and Western feel to it. I hope this additional bonanza of entertainment is always a part of the non-stop fun package at the resort. As a unanimous choice between the kids, my husband and me included, this is our fixed New Year holiday retreat every year going forward.
