This is my second time at Coco Shambhala, Goa and the experience was as good as ever. There are just 4 cosy villas here (with 2 bedrooms each) set around a beautiful pool. We stayed at Villa Bharini. The villas and rooms are beautifully done and organically blend into the surrounding landscape. Every meal was outstanding and obviously prepared with a lot of care. The service is warm and friendly always. And while Coco Shambhala is tucked away deep inside quiet road in the village, it is still just a 10 min drive away from Candolim. I would recommend Coco Shambhala without hesitation to anyone looking for a quiet, intimate, different experience in Goa!
This the 5th time we have stayed at Coco Shambala. We first came when our two boys were 2 and 5 years old and now at 15 and 12 years, it is still their favourite holiday, and ours too. Coco Shambala appeals to all ages, with its beautiful surroundings, the large pool and very comfortable villas and its accessibility to all the attractions of Goa. We loved the open living of the villa and its privacy. It has a jungle like feel, surrounded by tropical plants and trees and the upstairs living room has stunning views of fields where you can spend all day listening to the sound of the birds. It is magical. The staff at Coco Shambala are the icing on the cake! They are all professional, kind, helpful and always smiling. The team is incredibly well managed by Lumen, who makes your stay even better by coming round each morning to see how you all are and offer suggestions for where you might want to go for lunch or dinner or ideas of where you might want to visit, if you can tear yourself away from the pool or villa. The food at Coco Shambala, overseen by Suhas, is also absolutely delicious and nothing is too much trouble We’re already planning our next visit!…

Thank you so much Cocoshambala especially Lumen n the team to make our stay comfortable n perfect .. the property outstanding so beautiful, clean n that ginormous pool.. a perfect getaway..the food was sumptuous especially the local food was so good .. can’t wait to come back P.s. thank you Lumen for sending my charger.. I really appreciate it
The property is good but has extreme problems of Lizards, mosquitoes and other insects, please beware of this before booking. the living areas are also in outdoor spaces only hence not accessible at most times. Plunge pool is also very cold as it in shade and the common swimming pool is filled with lots and lots of mosquitoes so not usable. The breakfast however is good and served in the comfort of your villas with a proper table layout. the driver provided by them was very good as well.
Our recent experience at Coco Shambhala was truly amazing . Starting from the location, the architecture and plants and greenery ,the food and the most wonderful service. Exceptional. It was more than just a holiday experience it was almost spiritual. Thank you to Lumen, Alex, Adision , Baaba and all the very kind hosts.
Cocoshambala in Bardez has been home for me 3 times… I love this place, it’s ambiance, food, service all are top notch… came here this time to celebrate my 50 th birthday with my sisters… had the most amazing celebration… A special mention to Lumen who takes care of everything like an invisible magician… thank you all🙏🏻❤️
Amazing place to unwind amidst nature. With nature around you and well-planned villas it's a treat to relax. The food is very tasty served in special earthenware which takes you away from the usual world of metal utensils. The ever smiling staff and the welcome Shangria is a beautiful beginning of the wonderful things and experiences to follow.
If you are looking for villa stay ,in Goa , coco Shambhala is the place. It’s a home away from home. Service here is very good. Staff very courteous and prompt. The food choices and quality is par excellence. Everything is prepared fresh as per your taste and order. We were a group of friends and we simply fell in love with this place. These are four two bed room villas with kitchenette and dining area and a jacuzzi with each villa. And a common swimming pool All the villas are different and unique in style. Rooms are big and spacious. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here
We visited Goa after 2 and a half years and we were glad it was at Coco Shamabala. The hotel came highly recommended but we were still highly impressed with the service, our villa, the property and the food! Kudos to Lumen and her team ( Alex, Suhas and Yash to name a few). We had a great time and we are looking forward to go back there in April 2022.
