If you are looking for a property that is quiet yet close to all the tourist spots, there's nothing better than Lotus Sutra. The property is designed tastefully and exuberates zen vibes all day around. The delicacies at the restaurant are worth trying for their unique flavors and the hospitality team goes out of their way to make sure your stay is comfortable. All in all, the property gets 11 out of 10 from me - an additional point for the owner's personal touch ;)

We booked two rooms lotus sutra for 3 nights based on reviews. We didn't receive any confirmation from hotel on booking .On one day before to travel received confirmation for one room when tried to contact hotel they were not reachable. There were initial hickups
There is a small road to reach hotel but parking was decent enough. Do not expect star rated services for your stay
Pros:
Wooden Cottages are decent enough with space
There is space outside cottages for sitouts
Beach is just 50 steps away from resort
Peaceful beach access in North goa
Easy access to shops n market
Easy access to other beaches
Prompt reception service
Prompt restaurant service
Staff are polite enough to assist you
Live music in nights
Cons:
Rooms are not so clean
Bathrooms are ok type not so hygiene.. They don't have time to clean or sanitize rooms once old guest vacates
Staff doesn't understand english or hindi much.. Most of the times they are busy
Morning breakfast is a tough deal.. You need to wait a lot for food
Food needs to be improved a lot
Bit overpriced menu even sea food is over priced n not tasty
Ac was not working one room.. They asked us to change room n it was working fine in other room
Do not expect facilities in washroom like dental kit and proper soaps etc
Overall it's ok stay cos of walkable access to beach

Been there with friends and family.. loved the location and the calm... amazing cottages with friendly staff.. we had couple of great evenings here, which obviously also added up to the experience.. I truly enjoyed walking over the grass outside every cottage, which is really very well maintained.
Rooms are clean, and u need no time to reach the beach.. its just a small walk..
Overall it was a relaxing experience and i would recommend this to all.

The property is in the hands of incompatible staff except front office staff Titus. There is no one from management team who is looking after this property and they have ruined this beautiful resort. The owner must have done some surprise audits to see what actually is being served to the customers. I stayed here for 7 nights in most expensive luxury premium room with pool view. The resort gets maximum bookings or occupied because there is no option apart from this in Arambol area. The only thing which attracts the customers is location and you can check the attachedpics of the most luxurious room in which I stayed. When I checked in and entered in the room it was not cleaned properly and the linens were not changed. I called the room service to get it changed and if you're expecting anything upfront from the team, please don't because you have to ask for each and every thing since they will not do it without your request.
I didn't took pics of property because I booked a room and can not take pics without approval of the management. There were cobwebs everywhere which were cleaned on 12th Feb because of full occupancy on 13-14 Feb. All I can say is do not expect anything apart from beach front. Also it's the time for the owner to make a surprise visit and check the things in detail.

I had visited the property in peak season of January 1st week of 2022.

Considering the seasonal rates per night for a pool facing room the stay was not worth it.

It is poorly maintained and you could not even find a ceiling fan regulators in the room as they are broken and not replaced.

Complimentary water bottles were not placed in the room. We did called up the reception and the answer we got was 2 bottles per day were provided. We had to explain them that we had just checked in and it wasn't there. They did provide them in the end. This conversation was like a waste considering a 4 star resort. May be the room wasn't checked before arrival.

Tea coffee maker was available but without stirrers.
The tea kettle smelled of some concentrated air freshener. The same smell you could find when you enter the bathroom. I guess it was cleaned with some shampoo and not a descaler.

Satellite TV had no recharge. Reception guy did it within 10 minutes. Again this small thing could be avoided if the room was checked.

In the bathroom Shampoo bottle was literally empty. Again you could clearly makeout that the room wasn't checked before arrival. Had to called up housekeeping guy for refill.

I feel the Monthly Pest controlling was not done in the room as I found a small cockrach family breeding inside the storage chamber of sofa cum bed.

Biggest flaw that was very very bad that this hotel was struggling for power backup at night. The DG failed multiple times at night keeping the property in complete blackout for almost 15 minutes everything the power supply failed.

Lastly the morning breakfast could have been better with more choices of items.

The only USP of this property is the beach.

First of all, it is far from north and south goa. Second, the beach is very dirty and black. Third, they will do anything in their power to get money from you. No pool post 7pm, buy beer from them at 3x the price and then youre allowed to drink outside the pool. More restrictions than my school back then. The rooms were very basic. Washroom is very dirty. Multiple stains on the sink and the cummod. The food is just on another level. We ordered french fries, we received potato chilli.

My greatest mistake was paying the whole booking fee cash in advance; otherwise, I could have been able to check out the first night. Despite the very friendly approach of the front desk manager, Mr. Rakesh, this place is far from what it claims to be as "Premium or Deluxe Cottages." It certainly has the best location where the beach, the hill, and the heart of the village meet. But we were shocked to find a cockroach in our dirty stained beds the very first night we checked in. The mattress was worn and extremely inconvenient and annoying. The bathroom walls were literally rotten wood boards. There were roaches marching across the bathroom, too. So, we asked for immediate change. The night shift could not do anything but Mr. Rakesh begged our trust next day and promised to send us to the rooms without any issues. Unfortunately, the room was dirty and the toiletries were dusted. The room condition was not better except for the mattress which was at least not broken and the linens were changed from white to dark brown! Again, we saw cockroaches, this time on our toothbrushes!!! as well as the bathroom walls. The tabs were broken too and the water heater was not working efficiently. When I complained, the manager, Mr. Rakesh was wordless and preferred not to say anything. I expected at least an apology and a compensation but he even charged us for a late check-out. I wish I had been more patient and looked at least at the brand-new resort right across Lotus Sutra with literally brand-new cottages and far less expensive prices. I do not recommend Lotus Sutra at all unless they through fundamental renovations. Check my photos to see what you are payig for!

We stayed at Lotus Sutra from Dec 6 to Dec 8, 2022. The resort takes 100% advance however, rooms are not checked prior to allocation to guests. The AC in our room was not working. Inspite of repeated complaints to the reception staff, they did not fix it for more than 24 hrs. I have asked for refund from Operations Head Anukool for unethically charging us for AC room when the AC in the room was not working for 24 hrs. He mentioned that he would speak to owners who are abroad in getting me the refund. After I checked out, he has neither responded to my email on the subject, neither has shown the courtesy to respond to my calls. The food is below average and the restaurant service is pathetically slow. To summarize the beach location advantage of the resort has been squandered/ wasted due to unresponsive reception / restaurant staff, below average food and overall poor quality of service. The above is also reflected in Operation Head - Anukool's overall response/ approach to customer service wherein customer appears to be taken for granted. I will NOT recommend Lotus Sutra to anyone. There is no concept of customer care.

It's a small botique resort nestled in a small quaint road on the beach in arambol. The property has direct access to beach & has a swimming pool inside. I stayed in delux room which didn't have view of beach or garden , would recommend staying a cottage instead.

I really wanted to like this place, especially since our guide book (Lonely Planet) recommended it. The service was poor from the beginning. At reception it took much longer than needed to check in as the staff kept fielding questions from other guests. When I asked for the invoice, they said they would provide it, then didn't. I had to tell them our room number three times in a single conversation and finally got the invoice. They made us pay everything up front and an argument between staff members ensued when the one offered us a cheaper room (it was clear the other wanted to sell us a more expensive one). We felt exploited, as if we were just dollar signs and not guests in their beautiful location. The cleaning service showed up at 4:30 in the afternoon. When I asked them to return in an hour when we would be gone, they said yes. Then they didn't show up. The towels were ratty. And while the bed and room are very comfortable (great shower), the overall experience was very disappointing. Too expensive for what you get. We moved to a much more affordable place in the same area with hosts who cared. This place proves you don't always get what you pay for.
