A few weeks before, a friend of mine from Delhi, had reached out to me, and was asking about some place he could travel from Delhi over a weekend. His whole point was to travel out on a Friday and return to work on a Monday and be amazed in those 2 days.

Delhi’tes have the mountains above them, but don’t really have a beach. I knew if I could customise a nice beach experience with some activities, he’d probably go back feeling excited.

I told him to not worry so much, and told him I will keep him in air-conditioned comfort by the beach, and in a largely sylvan environment of greenery. My aim was to give him a bunch of experiences that only a sea town could provide and over just a weekend. So I met him on a Friday night at the Chennai airport and drove him down in my car to go show him that “Summers can be fun around Chennai’s coastline”

Presenting our next travel series titled ” You Know What We did This Summer? | Temple Bay Tales”, where I take my Delhi friend Tej to a series of activities where we rough up on the sand in an ATV, defy gravity in a Zorb, attain zen state over Shirodhara, Do some diving under water, Try sea side surfing in the morning, cycle our way to the shore temple and enjoy some sea side mocktails, learning how to fry veggies and fishes! All of this in a 48 hour weekend at Radisson Temple Bay (as part of their Summer Chillers program)! I am sure when Tej landed in Delhi, he must have landed a little heavier thanks to the memories he gathered from the weekend!

    1. Thanks Doreen. This was part man made and part nature! Hope to take you visually on the journey. The whole series should be done in the next 2 weeks. Part-1 releases today on the Blog.

  1. Temple Bay is a lovely property in Mahabalipuram and had a great time when we were there. We spent a couple of days there and enjoyed some of the activities and Spa. Will be looking forward to your series of videos. The trailer is really awesome.

    1. Thanks Sandy! I too thought the property was very well designed to be in a zone that’s completely different from the chaos of city life. Thanks for the feedback on the trailer.

  2. Hey guys! You guys did a great job! Btw I was wondering if i could get to see more of that food in the ending. Would you mind sharing em’?

    1. Thanks Nishant! Yes, that’s coming up a couple of episodes later with a discussion with the Chef too! Should be out in a week’s time. Please do come back for more!

  3. You did just the right thing this summer 🙂 Sea beaches and for that matter any water body makes for a perfect retreat as the summer months advance in India. I have stayed in Radisson Temple Bay for a weekend, it’s definitely a wonderful retreat.

    1. Actually, the perception is that a beach is not-doable in the summers owing to the heat. Usually this makes people avoid beaches, so it means lesser crowds and better prices :-). Good to know you have also stayed here. I love the place and the way its structured. Feels like a kingdom of its own 🙂
