Looks like our friends beat me to it in posting a review ! Not sure I want to tell everyone about it but that would not be fair. Where to start ....... well maybe first all the staff who do everything to make your stay enjoyable. Giles you have a really good team although I think you know that already....

If you want to just relax, it's a perfect place in North Goa. It's not ideal if you are interested in exploring as everything is a 30-45 minutes drive. Space is serene, service is impeccable and food is spectacular.

Very lovely quiet well run property Excellent staff and we enjoyed the peace. Very good service and delicious breakfasts Meals are to be ordered couple of hours in advance as chef actually goes to market for fresh produce. Gives one a wonderful exclusive feel Even more perfect if you take all four villas in a big family/friend group

Coco Shambhala is an oasis in an otherwise disappointing area. The hotel is peaceful and well managed, in fact the staff make up for the issues in the hotel. To start the villas are spacious and reasonably comfortable. They are kept immaculately clean, the food is very good and the chef and team go out of their way to provide...

Been meaning to write a review for almost a year! We visited the property in Oct 2015- and it's definitely one worth recommending. LOVED: 1) The food. The chef created a special menu everyday, fresh handpicked ingredients, cooked to perfection & to my (very fussy) husband's taste. 2) Meeting the owners/managers Giles & Shagun. Lovely hosts.
