It was my third time in Arudra, but this time i visited Goa as it was my friends wedding.
stayed there for 3 days, one of the day i reached very late and the kitchen was closed,i was starving but one of the associate name Suraj who managed to get me couple of Omelettes and breads. Its located at the best location close to all happening places in North Goa. They have this new suite rooms which has the best view, Will visit soon again...Cheers team Arudra!

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely, but Suites have the best view.

Went to Arudra's@Cisco's for the Holi weekend (2-4 March) with a group of friends. Great hospitality, perfect service, good food n drinks - only thing I can say, keep it up !!!

Well furnished rooms improvised from wooden beach shacks were very comfortable. We also tool part in the Holi party with activities for kids. The place is pet friendly with 2 adorable dogs of their own.

Kudos to the Sampada and Mayank who have managed to make Arudra hospitality the most popular and now our favourite beach front cottages at Baga, goa. I went with my husband and 7 year old daughter for our annual vacation to Goa and stayed at Arudra hospitality, Baga beach. This was our best Goan holiday experience till date and writing about our stay is like living that wonderful week all over again and being overwhelmed by a swirl of happy memories. In our one week there, we stayed for 4 days at their Garden view cottage and 3 days at the premium panaromic view suites located right above the hotel restaurant. We made the booking directly with our host Sampada after seeing their property on their website. It’s location is bang on the beach and the pictures of the beach front cottages had us anticipating our stay at this quaint and unique getaway. Booking was easy and prompt and we managed to block the rooms for our preferred dates. Since it was Goa we booked in a few months advance to be on the safe side.
When we arrived at the resort , the stunning location and view of the oceon from the resort provided the perfect arrival experience for us. We were warmly greeted by the team and in the few minutes our room keys were handed over to us while we stood mesmerised, enjoying the swishing and swirling sound that the waves made and the sound of birds chirping aways all around us. As we settled in our cottage our 7 year old enjoyed a jumping spree in the lovely grass that is a part of the greenery in front of our cottage.
Decor and design inside the cottage is uniquely modern and rustic and artwork of Shivji is a recurrent theme and on some level this surely reflects the values that our hosts must have envisioned for such a lovely place. We all know Shiva as the Supreme being who creates, protects and transforms the universe and one gets the same feeling when one stays at Arudra where such a aesthetically built living space is opened for us , nature seems to be thriving all around.. with sparrow hustling and chirping around us, chamelieons rushing through at the far end of the gardens. Sampada told us about a family of adopted chameleons who live in the vicinity but venture out only when their 2 year old lab, Ace( or acee ) and his 5 year old brother Tintin are not around. Ace and Tintin are truly the resorts mascots and are an integral part of ‘Team arudra”. A day does not go by when my daughter does not miss them now that we are back kn delhi. They were the most adorable companions and brought us all great joy. Truly kindred souls. They would welcome us daily, whether at the restaurant or sit alondside our daughter while she built sand castles at the beach, wagging their tail all the while. They can be seen dutifully following around Mayank and Sampada when they are doing their rounds around the vicinity and all the staff members also seem to have an endearing individual relationship with both Ace and Tintin.

The day we were meant to shift to the panaromic suites we couldn’t contain our excitement to get a birds eye view of the baga beach right from our room. After breakfast we headed up. Our luggage was already shifted by the ever efficient staff. As we reached the sitting area of the suite we were speechless. Even while Sameer gave a brief orientation of the suites we couldn’t stop looking at the magnificent view. There are two such suites at the beach front. The room is just stunnong with a bed with leather upholstery and a eye catching chandelier lends even more opulence and luxury to it. The front porch seemed so huge and our daughter was seen spending most of her time kicking around her beach ball here. My husband would join her playing ball too..The magnificence of the suites can be experienced only when is physically there.

Arudra beach front is located very close to Titos lane , baga where one can find many options for dance clubs, tattoo bars, desserts cafes and souvenirs shops. This lane is also close to most of the popular eating joints at baga.
Having said that and despite other options easily available to us we preferred dining at Arudra’s in house restaurant.
Small small things are given attention here and the staff is super attentive but never intrusive. Its like whenever you need something someone is always around to help you out. Throughout the day every part of the beach front has one or two team member manning the front. Safety of the guests is clearly of foremost important here. We felt very safe and at home.
Apart from secure environment they have the most amazing food at this speciality restaurant. A wonderful array of seafood delights, desserts and drinks. We preferred eating at the beach front restaurant not just for its peace and calm environment but also cos it seemed that whenever we placed an order we were delivered mouth watering, large portions, that exceeding our expectations every time. In one week we had tried their fish and chips platter, seafood salad, Basa fish sizzler, pepper chicken sizzler, macarel fish curry with rice and some yummy pasta options to name a few. We were totally spoilt for choice and our daughter used to look forward to meal times at the restaurant. There were some dishes we ordered daily like their super crispy calamari and special arudra spicy fries with our meals . Our daughters favourite breakfast was their most famous pancakes and fresh fruit platter..my husband used to have their banana chickoo milkshake. They both used to have it daily. All this yumminess at reasonable prices and we were happy that visa cards were accepted at the resort for the dining payments.
We were really happy about our decision to stay here .We made Arudra our home for 7 days and we can’twait to return. We miss the lovely chats with the hosts sampada and Mayank. Its amazing how they run this place so effortlessly and also be the most friendly hosts. One of them is always managing the restaurant and very attentive to all the in-house guests. Another highlight of this week was the holi celebrations . We thoroughly enjoyed the water games organised by the team. Mayank and Sampada’s fun personality and professionalism is what makes the Arudra experience a memorable one. The ever attentive and warm staff takes cue from them and reflect their value system. It is inspiring to see young Indian entrepreneurs working so hard to set the bar high in the indian hospitality industry just like Sampada and Mayank. Thanks again to Arudra hospitality and wishing team arudra all our best wishes . Best place to stay in baga, goa
