Mayfair Palm Beach Resort, Gopalpur-On-Sea, is a wonderful stop for travellers who like a peaceful stay.
There are some places that you discover that you’d rather not tell anyone about. It’s no wonder then that this little sleepy hamlet on the eastern shore has remained a closely guarded secret. Once the word gets out, you may soon see the day when hawkers, garbage and tourists throng the pristine golden sands and calm waters of Gopalpur- on-Sea. With the aim of providing high-quality service, Mayfair Hotels & Resorts are widely recognised and have been a favourite choice of savvy tourists. With the catchphrase, ‘Stay With Us, Stay With Nature,’ Mayfair Hotels & Resorts caters to both business and leisure travellers, blending state-of-the-art facilities and personalised service.
Usually, when asked about things to do in Gopalpur, you’d remain blank. And there’s a perfectly good reason for it. Because, in Gopalpur all there is, is the lighthouse, the beach and The Mayfair Palm Beach Resort, originally built in 1914 by a young Italian from Sicily, Signor Maglioni. Back then the world hadn’t even heard of Gopalpur and the little town returned the compliment.
The sands of Gopalpur have seen a lot of changes over time—from men in khaki to becoming a gateway for derelicts. Barely 16 km from Behrampore, which is a commercial hub of Southern Odisha and also has historical importance in the Indian war of independence, Gopalpur was named ‘Gopalpur-on-Sea,’ just like the British suffix, ‘Middleton-on-Sea.’ This beach resort is also an ideal setting for a honeymoon, private destination weddings and events where you’d like the expanse of the place and facilities on offer but at the same time fall in love with the intimacy of the resort and the little town. The best time to visit Gopalpur-on-Sea is now and the best place to stay right now is The Mayfair Palm Beach Resort.
