Who would believe that hidden within the hustle bustle and excitement of northern Goa there could be such a blissful retreat. Our villa was so beautiful. We loved the antique Indian furniture and ornaments, the silky smooth floors, the huge beds and the fabulous pool and gardens. A holiday here though, is more than the architecture and the landscape. It...

We stay in the neighbouring village and decided to head to Coco Shambalya for a luxurious New Year Day breakfast. It was a glorious and memorable meal, all thanks to the brilliant Coco Team of Suhas and Lumen. We ate like gluttons - with fresh orange juice, fluffy omelettes, puri bhaji, paranthas, fruits, waffles, pancakes and more ....Really the hospitality...

If you want to just relax, it's a perfect place in North Goa. It's not ideal if you are interested in exploring as everything is a 30-45 minutes drive. Space is serene, service is impeccable and food is spectacular.

Very lovely quiet well run property Excellent staff and we enjoyed the peace. Very good service and delicious breakfasts Meals are to be ordered couple of hours in advance as chef actually goes to market for fresh produce. Gives one a wonderful exclusive feel Even more perfect if you take all four villas in a big family/friend group
