Great breakfasts (try the smoothie bowls) and a quiet atmosphere. You can see monkeys playing in the trees in the mornings and you are only yards away from Palolem beach. Simple but nice rooms with A/C and fans. Recommended!

Wow! What an amazing place! Palm forest combines an immersive “ jungle”experience with luxurious ( but rustic) facilities and services. Spacious room with lovely bathrooms - with both indoor and outdoor shower.. Superb breakfast with beautifully presented dishes. Good coffee. Only a few minutes walk from delightful Palolem beach , wonderful swimming. Loads of great places to eat - and cocktails !! Also loved our one hour river backwater trip - so soothing and lots to see. A wonderful stay! Thank you.

The property, staff and their hospitality is amazing at Palm Forest. The Yoga classes were most enriching and so was the healthy breakfast after that. The beach is perfectly located. we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and recommend it for a holistic vacation. The vegan cafes nearby are too good

Beautiful insta-worthy property! Very clean uniquely built wooden huts with clean washrooms and outside bathroom. Excellent service. The staff is very friendly. Breakfast was very delicious too. Do try their omlettes and smoothie bowls. They have an amazing open spa area and yoga place along with a shirodhara room. Palolem beach is within one minute walking distance. We had a very relaxing stay at this hotel. Highly recommend this place and would definitely book it again for our next visit!

I had a great time staying at Palm Forest Palolem! I've stayed in Palolem a couple of times. and this was definitely my favorite stay. The cottages are beautiful, eco-friendly and super comfortable (with AC). You rarely get to stay in cottages here that are on the premium side.The location is perfect, just a minute walk from the beach. I personally prefer this side of the beach over the other side of Palolem because it's more peaceful. At arrival, the staff was super friendly and helped us make the most out of our stay. They even upgraded us to a better room for free! Overall, the place gives a very chill vibe. They also offer yoga classes and offer a couple of treatments / massages. The breakfast is also outstanding. I've had the most yum smoothie bowls! I highly recommend staying here!

I stayed at Palm Forest again (I think it was my fourth trip) for several days in November - a few days by myself and a few days with friends. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff are friendly and helpful. It’s a quiet haven away from other tourists. The yoga was also fantastic. Overall, the most relaxing place to stay in Palolem.

Loved the charming property. We had taken the Deluxe rooms and they were big and clean. Breakfast is very good. Good internet as well. Beach is a very short walk and in a way its good to have this small distance from the beach to have peace in the resort. The Palolem beach itself is wonderful - probably one of the best in Goa. The food on the beachside shacks is fantastic and their are many small charming eateries on the main road as well for exploring lunch options if you like. Staff is courteous and service is fine. Few things which took away 1 star: 1. The water pressure was not great and hot water would not be enough till end of bath unless conserved carefully. 2. The wash basin is tad too small. 3. Luckily, we got car parking, but otherwise it's a problem. Resort may check with the guests and provision some car parking for people who are coming with cars and provide directions as well to park.

Palm Forest is a beautiful place to stay in. We were 2 adults and an 8 yr old child. The room is spacious and clean. The bathroom is nicely done but it feels small and congested escpecially if you are tall. The room has a small balcony where you can sit out. The resort has lots of palm trees. The breakfast is very healthy and nutritious. I loved the cacao smoothie bowl. But the options are vey limited. They could improve on this. It is an ecofriendly resort which i really liked. They have a water dispenser in the room which is an excellent idea. They dont have a restaurant which is not a problem because there are many options available on the beach. However the biggest disadvantage is location. The access road to the beach is narrow and goes through the houses of locals although it was well-lit. I would still recommend carrying a torch at night. The road to main road will be difficult to navigate at night. We never used this road at night. If you want to access the restaurants on main road I recommend going from the beach road. Another point is this resort is on the north side of the beach whereas most of the good restaurants are on the south side.On the plus side their hospitality is great. The staff is very helpful. We had a problem with hot water and the main door but it was sorted out after we spoke to those guys. Overall a very pleasant stay at Palm Forest.

Oh what a wonderful two days it was here! The staff is so helpful and courteous, helping us with with all our questions so patiently! The best part of this quaint property is that they’re PLASTIC FREE! Particularly, Ashwin, Arun, Pankaj and Uday. Each of them went of their way to ensure our experience here was nothing short of amazing!! Kudos team!! The rooms were spotlessly clean and super pretty! How thoughtful of them to keep beach towels and beach bags as well! Pankaj was responsible for the sumptuous(not to forget, healthy) food we had everyday. The beet smoothie bowl gets a special mention, it was just delicious! Uday the masseuse gave us the most relaxing feels of the holiday with the professional massages! Arun was really ensuring if everything was in order for us! Right from the rooms to the food everyday! Extremely polite and approachable for anything! Ashwin is super friendly and was kind enough to offer his bike to make last minute purchases! He was also extremely helpful with all our questions. Highly recommend this beautiful property, our experience here was one we’ll remember thanks to this team:)
