The hotel has a direct connection to a beach where there are shacks but when we visited the hotel the shacks were shut which was really very unfortunate for us. Talking about...

We visited at New Year and the hotel was busy. Excellent grounds in this hotel with a good pool area and beach on your doorstep. The beach is populated just outside the hotel with some beach shacks etc which are good but the only fault we found with the hotel was that the hotel had no facilities on the beach...

Great property and ambience. Terrific and courteous staff especially Geeta at the front office. Good Goan food and sumptuous breakfast spread. Highlight ofcourse was the secluded private entrance to the beach. Decent pool. I went to the Kiddie side with my 3 year old. Nice restaurants nearby like Fishermans wharf. There is also a department store within walking distance. Would...

Stepping in, into the premises, you are out of the world, lost in magical layout , swimming pool welcomes you, as soon as you enter. The cottages are laid down as such, as you are into a fairy land, everything is laid down , exactly, as it should be, overall, it seems to be sort of small town in itself....
