We were initially booked to stay at Coco Shambhala, Sindhudurg, for 4 nights and then move on to their Goa Property. But a day into our stay, we decided that this is where we were going to be based for the entire winter break! The first thing that captured our hearts, was really the most spectacular view from the Villa. The unending blue ocean spread out in front of us and the sound of the waves were truly mesmerising. But this is only the tip of the iceberg and what makes Coco Shambala truly stand out is the warm hospitality of an energetic and happy team. This was evident from the first time we connected with Lumen on the phone to book our holiday. Her quick and detailed responses were what gave us the initial confidence that we have picked the right place. And then her team is truly a reflection of her! Cleto, the property manager at Sindhudurg, leads from the front. Always accessible and spending time with us daily to set course for the day. From organising dolphin watching trip, to leisurely breakfast on the beach (post a long lovely hike)- his plans and activities for us were always on point. Stanley and Dileep from the F&B team, spoilt us for choice on the food front. With the freshest ingredients, they served us a range of cuisines-from Malvani, to Thai, to Italian. And it will truly go down as one of our most memorable culinary experiences. Our kids were also thoroughly pampered by the kitchen staff! The spa-led by Harish (who also accompanied us on a amazing dolphin watching trip) was a quiet sanctuary. Special mention for service- Johnson. Their local nature guide, Redkar, is quite the gem. He took us on some fantastic hikes and his determination to help us sight the elusive Malabar pied hornbill, was really heartwarming! Lots of bird watching to do here. The beach is clean and quiet and the beach service provided by the hotel is spectacular! A perfect escape in these Covid times. Their Covid protocol-sanitising, masking, distancing-was on point, We can’t wait to go back soon!

CocoShambala at Sindhudurg is the perfect place to relax, restore and recalibrate. It is a high end luxury boutique property with attention to detail as their biggest draw. The location, on a hill, decor that uses sustainable materials, the wholesome gourmet meals and the ever-smiling and super efficient staff make CocoShambala a place that we want to return to every year. The beach is a walk down, and most mornings we had the entire beach to ourselves. We also explored the backwaters of the Karli river which we found to be quite therapeutic. We enjoyed watching a plethora of birds and the ripples of quiet village life. I must add that the view from the villa is sublime and as we’re all into bird watching, every morning and evening it was a treat to sit back and spot these beautiful creatures. Did I say the staff are very well trained - friendly yet discreet. Everything there runs smoothly. The food is top notch and we particularly enjoyed the ridge gourd salad, bottle gourd with sesame soup, Malvani seafood and curry leaf cooler. We were pampered to no end and I even learnt how to make Malvani prawn curry with kokum and clam sukka with fresh coconut. I could go on and on but let me just say it is a fabulous place for the entire family and we couldn’t get enough of it.

Dear Mr.Giles Knapton, We have been travelling all around the globe and my father has always been there asking me to explore our own India more. I never thought I will get to understand what he meant, till we stumbled upon Coco Shambhala at Sindhudurg. Thank you for helping us discover a quint beach town called Sindhudurg. Coco Shambala. Its such a lovely luxury retreat where we felt at home and we hardly want to depart from. Along with the absolutely beautifully curated property are the 32 magicians headed by Mr.Cleto , who will put to shame names like The Ritz Cartlton and The Saint Regis in service. Hats off for the entire team who manage this 4 Villa retreat. They really add character to this stay and without then we would have never been able to experience such bliss. The fond memories of me and my son playing football with the staff on the beach in the evening through the sunset will stay forever. The walks we had in the lovely secluded beach, The small spa that offered me an amazing traditional therapy treatment, The lazing around in our private pool overlooking the ocean, The mouthwatering cuisine served everyday are all memories we shall never be able to get over with. Mr.Giles & The magicians team, Thank You for everything. We look forward to our numerous visits henceforth 🙂

We stayed in Cocoshambala for a week in Dec 2021 and what a great holiday it was! The location of the property is super! … easy access to beaches, shacks and a lot of amazing restaurants.., But also so peaceful and quiet in the property. The property has 4 villas which share a pool and surrounded by lush greenery. We stayed in villa rohini which had two pretty bedrooms downstairs, a cute kitchen and a huge beautiful sitout on the first floor. The tropical style outdoor bathroom were a bonus and my girls (aged 4 and 6) were thrilled, they were busy half the time shooting garden lizards , tree frogs, beetles and other critters! The villa is very nature friendly and each corner has been designed thoughtfully. We spotted a lot of birds like bulbuls, kingfishers, owls and also an Indian paradise fly catcher while hanging out in our sit out or by the pool. Housekeeping was excellent! The kitchen was stocked with whatever we needed. Thank you Manju and Lakshmi . The kitchen under Edison whipped up some amazing breakfasts complete with a fresh fruit platter and heart shaped waffles. We had a few meals and coco and they were delicious, subtly spiced… just how we like it! Do try their seafood dishes. Thank you yash and josh for taking care of us! The pool is lovely and very child friendly, we spent hours there. And the unchlorinated water was a bonus. Our booking came with a driver and a car at our disposal and this was so great! Baba our driver was superb, and gave excellent shack recommendations, he even arranged for a boat ride to spot dolphins! Thanks Baba! Finally thanks to Lumen and Alex for coordinating everything and making sure our trip was fun and safe! If you have a generous budget and looking for a luxury villa in goa this is it!

Serene, is the one word that describes a stay at Coco Shambala. We took the flight from Mumbai to Sindhudurg and our holiday feeling started in-flight when we could see the waters underneath right before landing in Sindhudurg. With Coco Shambala's airport transfers, we reached the property in about 15 minutes. From the moment you arrive and enter the main doors to the property, you're transported to a different world. The lush greenery, the pathway to each villa through the office, spa and kitchen is just pristine. And then the moment of truth - you walk into your villa - we stayed in Amaresha for 6 nights - and it's pure bliss. Such a nicely done up place with the most exquisite pool with the coco tree's reflection looking as beautiful as it does on their website. We had the opportunity to look around the other villas and each bore the resemblance of serenity that is the hallmark of Coco Shambala. From then on it's just the most private and fabulous stay one can ask for. We were originally skeptical of the 'no doors' policy but within hours realised that it takes away literally NOTHING from our want of privacy. We were greeted by the most wonderful welcome drink and a fantastic lunch spread and just like that, our concerns about limited food options flew out the window and the food that kept coming was simply too good. I'm salivating at the mere thought as I type :) We'd read ALL the reviews here about the property and kept wondering why people were so skeptical about wanting to write back about a place so nice. But once you reach there you realise that you want to keep it your secret. Sharing this with the world just opens this up to more people who'd flock to the place and who can tell how it'll be the next time. But, at the same time, not given a stellar review would be a disservice to the staff who so very nicely cater to your every need and are the most calm, collected, collaborative and passionate team. And therefore, I find myself here, typing away at this review. A special shoutout to Cleto and his team, to name a few - Stanley, Johnson, Suhas, Tulip and offcourse Veerappan :P who made our stay so memorable. You guys rock! Thank you so much for all you did. The candle lit dinner was the icing on the cake - just so thoughtful and wonderful. Coco Shambala is a place you never want to come back from, and if you do, it'd certainly not be your last visit. It is most definitely a place no one can stay just once at. Once is never enough!!! I'm already excited about next trip back :)
