Property on the Beach - hidden gem its restaurant
on Dec 10, 2017
This property is on the beach. Location and view are the BEST points about the property. One is not even required to cross the road. Few rooms are sea facing and few have common balcony which is sea facing.
Very moderately priced. All the Odisha Tourism tours start and end here so one is not required to travel anywhere to catch the bus.
Staff is reasonably good. Rooms are big enough. Only limiting point is that rooms are not well maintained ie automatic lock system of main door was broken, Some dampness in the ceiling.There are no fancy things like IRON, Tea/ coffee maker in the room, toiletries like shampoo etc else this would have been 5 star property
Rooms are clean. Bed was good. It is 2 floor building. Hidden gem is the restaurant of the hotel. Food is fabulously tasty and extremely cheap. Meal for 2 is around Rs. 200. We liked food so much that for all the 5 days we had all our meals here. Must must must try Dish is Baigara Baingan. It’s so tasty that we had this in all our meals. Another strongly recommended item is Rice kheer which is prepared like Rabdi. Other items like Parantha, Dal Tadka, Jeera Rice, Manchurian, Noodles, Hot and Sour Soup are also good.
I liked the food so much that may be to have food again I would like to visit this Restaurant again from Delhi
Booking can be done online over Odisha Tourism website and preferably should be done couple of months in advance to avoid disappointment
Place is peaceful. However there is Marine drive just 500 meters away and sometimes there is loud music played there at Night can cause disturbance.
Nice place near the beach

Managed by OTDC, it is located right in front of the beach and not far from Lord Jagannath temple. It has well furnished AC deluxe rooms. We stayed in a room, where we could enjoy the scenic beauty of the seashore from the front window. We liked the vegetarian food with a nice hospitality of the staff.
Bang on the beach

Lovely property . Well maintained.
The beach on which the panthanivas is situated is not crowded at all.
Food is not exceptional but tasty
The only problem is it takes a long long time to ready it. We had to order lunch immediately after breakfast 😊
Panthanivas Puri Booking
on Oct 21, 2017
Well the plan of Puri is on and will be visiting during month end of Oct'17.But i want to submit the ways to book OTDC Panthanivas Puri.The process is available online on otdc website or for Kolkata quota need to visit kolkata office located at 55,Lenin Sarani.The rates for AC DR is 2300/-+ GST but we got 10% discount for senior citizen.The only thing that needs to be improved here is they still take only cash,no card payments accepted.And the rooms will be confirmed only in Panthanivas itself, here they dont confirm the room details, only excepts the amount.Hope to have a pleasant trip as im accompanied with all 3 old parent and in-laws.
Big property in front of beach away from Swargwadwar
on Aug 17, 2017
I was travelling with my spouse, 6 yr old daughter and aged parents. We had booked 2 AC deluxe rooms and we were given rooms on first floor. The property is huge and has grand entrance and well maintained park which takes you to the sea beach. All the rooms are sea facing. There is lift to assist the boarders,specially the aged ones. Food quality is good and is reasonable in pricing. The buffet breakfast is poor as it lacks choice and maybe because it's complimentary. The rooms are large and spacious but lacks maintenance, be it damps in the walls or the doors. The service staffs are courteous and always available. Still i would like to go back considering the location and tranquillity of the place which has attracted me the most. Have been to Puri for more than 20 times and i guess this can easily be one of the best places to stay considering the huge footfall in the main beach. They provide you with services like car rentals. If you book online, you can claim a discount for senior citizens too. We visited during Independence day extended weekend holiday and got the opportunity to hoist the national flag in the garden. Overall it was a great experience.
