Taj Fisherman's Cove - In the Lap of Luxury ....

           Have you ever wanted to spend a blissful weekend – absolutely doing nothing…just strolling around in a place surrounded by lush greenery…. great food… with the sun above and the sea waves touching your feet…?!! Then the Taj Fisherman’s Cove would be an apt choice..… !! The resort can be described as a serene and beautiful place sorrounded by lush gardens, a pristine white private beach and a perfect place to take romantic walks on.. .. ;-);-) The fantastic location of the resort along the shoreline of the Bay of Bengal and the tranquil garden settings that is cultivated within adds to the beauty of the resort.
  
      There are private cottages in various categories and perfect views - garden view, sea view etc.,..& if you like to have dinner by the sea shore, they arrange private dinners and also they have open air restaurants inside the resort, that cater food with incredible views of the sea, rocks and greenery !! This is a suitable place to spend time with family and unwind from the hustle bustle of the city – in fact, this is a perfect weekend retreat as they call it...!!  

     We went to the Taj Fisherman’s Cove a couple of weeks back and stayed there during the weekend - This was my first visit to the place & I was literally surprised to see such a beautiful place with a great ambience surrounded by greenery within Chennai…the place was way beyond my expectations… Right from the welcome drink to the shell mala with which they welcome a person in the resort , the shell-shaped cottage in which we stayed , the warm and the friendly staff, the golf cabbie rides within the resort, the excellant breakfast , dinner buffets and the impeccable service… the place was fantastic and the visit was enjoyable !! And ofcourse, quality and excellance always comes with a price … !!!

The cottage with a patio and  private garden ...
Love the simple pattern on the white brick wall....



 Wicker chairs and white interiors - simple and minimalistic ..

Mirror adorned with shells...
The tranquil garden and the beautiful landscape...

Beautiful sea-view villas ... Love those stone-like exteriors...
The shell-shaped cottages facing the sea...

Stone sculptures that are commonly sold on the
roads of ECR, chennai....


The swimming pool situated amidst trees ...  
Lounge chairs by the swimming pool - a place to relax
with a good book... !!
The 'Bay view' restaurant that offers incredible views of the sea..
I took these photographs when they were setting the table...
This is one easy and lovely flower arrangement... !!

My favorite photographs are those of the reading room..
Love the black and white rug and the embroidered pillows
that  co-ordinate well with it..
 The wooden book shelf...
Isn't that artwork and the stone mask beautiful ?!?!

The 'Upper Deck' restaurant - dinner setting by the rocks... !!
Love this simple tablescape and the blue glasses ... !!
