The Bungalow on the Beach is a 17th century Danish Governor's bungalow that has been recently transformed from a ruin to a heritage hotel. Located by the beach the impressive Danish Fort is on one side and on the other is a medieval Pandya temple crumbling into the sea. The building is as much an example of intelligent conservation as it is an evocation of the past, using as it does a minimum of carefully chosen vintage furniture, paintings and artefacts. Its high-ceilinged rooms are spacious, individually decorated and named after Old Danish ships that stopped here. There is a set menu in the little restaurant (there are no other good choices nearby) and continental breakfast can be served on the terrace. This is the best available hotel in this region and although atmospheric and comfortable it should be considered basic.
