I spent 3 nights with my family for the chinese new year weekend ... It was a wonderful experience. First, the hotel is located in a very nice setting with a beautiful beach, the rooms were clean and comfortable, the main pool and smaller pools were enjoyable. Then, the buffet food at the main restaurant was very good and varied - Burger truck was handy for a quick lunch and a favourite with the kids. And the live music and shows organized every night were fun, especially the sega night with Denis Claude Gaspard ... Finally, I wanted to give a big thanks to the very friendly and helpful team that we've met at Tamassa and who did everything they could to make our stay the most enjoyable possible, taking care of some special food needs (due to one of my aunt's food allergies). Some of the names that come to mind are chef Edinho, Chef Mahesh, chef Sandiren, Daniel, Jonathan, Ali, Aditya, Leena, Rajesh, Saulick, Sabrina, Hansley, Ludovic, Ismena and others that I'm missing the names but who are doing a great job and want to thank them also!! See you next time!! Read less

After lot of planning we decided to go for a weekend a Tamassa Resort, which was really great and fantastic for everyone. From the check-in to the check-out service, everything was near to perfection. The staff welcomed us, and while we were being briefed how the hotel is, the allocation of room was being taken care of. They did not delay to give us our rooms. I would like to thank Mrs. Hemlata who were very helpful during our stay. The service at the bar also was very good, the waiter did not miss any opportunity to serve us with their cocktails. The room service also was very nice, with its beach view. I would like to thank Mr. Sandesh who take care of us for the check-out of the rooms. And without forgetting, the main restaurant. Food was too good and there was a lot of variety for non-veg and veg also, which we really appreciated. The NAND was very yummy and tasty, which was cooked in a tandoor and it was being served to us by the Executive Chef, Mr. Mahesh Prabhu. He made our stay memorable, with his 400 calories dessert which was served to us on the last day of our stay. I would personally thank Mr. Mahesh Prabhu and his team for this. Last but not least, the spa session was very good. I would like to thank Mrs. Jayshree and her colleague for the couple massage which was provided to us. So, don't hesitate to go holidays at Tamassa Resort. Read less

Hello friends... on our arrival we observed that the hotel was mostly booked by local residents. But the staff took good care of us and the checking process was very quick. The hotel has also taken necessary measures to make our stay safe. We met chef Mahesh and his dedicated team who made lovely mouth watering dishes and desserts for every palet... We spent much time at PLAYA restaurant where the staff make you feel at home and menu are ordered a la carte. The dishes are prepared instantly and served hot... we felt very honoured by this type of service proposed by the hotel...which can be compared as a first class service restaurant!!! As usual The burger truck is still famous for the fresh burger prepared and much appreciated by kids and adults.... Hats off to the entertainment team including Jonathan and Aqua gym team. We had lots of fun in the pool during foam party.... Overall our stay was excellent and whenever we made a request same was entertained. We strongly recommend to choose the hotel for your next destination!!! Thank you so much. Read less
