If you're staying in Palolem, then this is the place to be. It's a minute's walk from the beach. At the same time you won't hear the noise from the beach at this property. It's a lovely secluded property. The staff is extremely friendly. The rooms are very nice. One can spend a lot of time just at the property as well. It's also a Yoga retreat centre so a lot of the guests staying would have come for that. They have a very affordable in house masseuse. Food options are limited, but that's fine given there are so many places to eat nearby. Would surely want to come back again.

We had a fabulous stay at palm forest in the middle of January. The place is beautiful, the rooms are gorgeous, the staff are all so friendly and the breakfast was delicious! 2-3 minutes walk from the beach behind the busy front huts palm forest sits in a lovely quiet spot with a lovely garden and restaurant area. Within the small resort you will find the best massage in Palolem (that’s our opinion) thanks to UDAYA and SAVITRI NAYAK - this couple are amazing and will help both male and female with any type of massage with such professionalism and great value for money! I would highly recommend for anyone who is looking for a bit more luxury to stay at Palm forest and we will definitely come and stay again soon!

Best place we stayed in our trip to India. We had the two adjoining deluxe bungalows over Christmas 2023. From the moment we got out of the taxi and the staff came en force to welcome us I knew we were onto something good. Beautiful rooms, amazing breakfast and perfect location at the quieter end of palolem beach. We had in house massages, used the body boards and just generally had a great time. Looking forward to coming back!

Would highly recommend Palm Forest! Eco lodging style hotel within walking distance to the beach and has lots of activities to offer. Tasty breakfast with lots healthy options. The massage treatments were amazing from Uday and Savitri and very reasonable priced. Overall excellent service - big thanks to Sairjai who helped arrange all our activities and Laila the resident dog for keeping guard, especially from the monkeys.

My fiance and I stayed at Palm Forest Palolem for 12 days in November 2023. The hotel can be described in 1 word: amazing! Our beach hut was super spacious, clean and came with everything we needed and more. The bed was super comfortable and the amenities were great. The whole hotel complex makes you feel like you are in the middle of a palm jungle (which you are). It’s such a nice and calming place in the middle of nature and right at the beach (2 minute walk). The hotel staff was very friendly and super helpful and were really on it. When we went to breakfast we hung the sign so that our room would be cleaned. When we came back to the room 30-45 minutes later it was already cleaned - such a fast and great service! I had a massage at the hotel which was so relaxing and amazing. I also used the laundry service at the hotel which did my laundry in less than 24h and the price was so good! When we arrived at the hotel we received a welcome coconut and when we came to our beach hut, there was already mosquito spray there for us, so that we wouldn’t get bitten. We booked airport transfers with the hotel which were super fair priced and the drivers were great. They were on time and I felt very safe. There was even WiFi in the car. I’ve stayed in many 5 star hotels all over the world and I have to say Palm Forest Palolem is at least as good as those hotels and in some cases impressed me even more. I would definitely come back. I loved it and I would recommend this to anyone who wants to spend some time to relax at the beach. Bars and restaurants are really close by. The breakfast, which is included in the rate, is amazing. Super fresh, delicious and looks very instagrammable. I’m more than impressed! Thank you to everyone at Palm Forest Palolem for making our stay so special!

Amazing place close to the beach. The huts are really nice and clean with everything you need including water to drink. Very Friendly and helpful staff and the breakfast is really good. Nice yoga shala and professional massage. The owners have really managed to create a destination that you want to visit again. For sun beds and good food our advice is to go to Fernandes that you find on the beach to the right. Helpful, nice and super lunch and dinner.

We stayed for two nights at this little piece of paradise just set back from Palolem Beach. Our cottage was stunning and exceeded all expectations. Immaculately clean and beautifully furnished with attention to detail- think beautiful huge comfy bed with draped mosquitos net and palm leaf scatter cushions, eco friendly soap and shampoo bars, a walk in rain fall shower and a quality safe for your valuables. we had a little porch area with two chairs and a pretty bowl to wash the sand from our feet when we came back from the beach. We were served ice cold coconuts as a welcome drink when we arrived which was a nice touch. Breakfast was included in our room rate and the food is SO good. Try the smoothie bowl- it’s delicious. My children loved the tropical pancake stacks and chose them each morning. You can also order fresh watermelon or pineapple juice which they make to order. Oh and proper coffee too! The staff are friendly, welcoming and keen to help. There’s a pretty yoga shala and an outdoor massage area which was lovely, I opted for the foot reflexology under the palms! Bliss! This place is a short 1-2 minute stroll from the beach making it ideally located as it’s close to the action but very peaceful too. A perfect resort with hosts that pay attention to detail. I’d recommend this place to families, couples and lone travellers as safe, friendly and luxurious.

The location is excellent; on the quieter, more peaceful side of Palolem beach. The beach itself is a 30-second walk down a private road. The cottages are much larger than they appear in pictures. Super-comfortable bed and very thoughtful amenities, including beach towels and a beach bag. The eco-friendly toiletries are an excellent addition - something that more places should replicate. The breakfast is excellent; tried something different every single day of my stay and none of it disappointed.
