Isn’t it amazing when you can enjoy a luxurious stay and also experience the thrill of adventurous activities at the same time? ‘The Alampara’ near Chennai is a luxury boutique resort where you can try out various water sports activities like windsurfing lessons and kayaking, and also spend a memorable time with your loved ones amidst nature. This place looks like a picture and is surely worth experiencing at least once.

The Story Behind The Alampara

Nestled in Madurantakam, The Alampara has so many stories behind it. Arun Vasu, the chief managing director of the TT Group, was on a mission to find an unexplored place where he could start windsurfing lessons and camping. Alamparai was just an unused surrounding surrounded by paddy fields. It faced a tsunami and survived it. Also, it pulled through almost 250 years of decay. And today the 50-acre land is a beautiful resort that is serving the visitors in the best possible way. The Alampara Resort is just a boat ride away from Alamparai in Madurantakam.

The Private Sandbar

Alampara has surprising elements for you at every step. Just a boat ride away from the property, there stands an 8-acre long private sandbar. There are plans of settling a rehabilitation centre for turtles and birds on this sandbar. In fact, it is quite close to the Kazhuveli Bird Sanctuary. If you are visiting this resort with some time in your hand, make sure to take a stroll around this sanctuary. You will be stunned to see flamingos, pelicans, and many other migratory birds there.

A Paradise For Foodies

We have seen enough of natural beauty and windsurfing lessons. Now let’s dig into the in-house menu for the guests. Chef Saranana Kumar’s seafood cuisine is the most popular here. Andhra chapala pulusu curry with rawas with rice smells divine and tastes heavenly. Another chef’s signature dish is Spaghetti bolognese. And of course, a trip to South India never finishes without a cup of filter coffee! Likewise, the filter coffee here is very famous and tastes good too.

There is simply no better way to end your day than stargazing surrounded by a blanket of blue sky and greenery. You don’t need any music as the sound of the birds, flowing water, and leaves flapping in the air seems like the calmest way to unwind after a tiring yet happy day of adventures.
