Visited Arpita Beach Resort, Chandipur in March 2016 during Holi. Nice Hotel with comfortable rooms, excellent staffs, clean bathrooms and good restaurant. They had a superb room service. Five minutes walk from the beach.
Got a good deal from go ibibo. Executive rooms were great. Food was decent. Hotel is a bit far from main beach, but there is a beach near hotel backside. Overall good stay. Go for executive rooms as they are pretty big & comfortable.
