Very conveniently located for Kudle Beach and the town and easy to reach Om Beach. Owners were helpful and friendly. Good aircon. Hasn’t been open very long and still had a few teething issues around plumbing etc when we were there but owners sorted them out when raised. Landscaping is also still a work in progress. The owners (Jasmine and Ansari) are great and very professional / have great customer service and understanding of tourism and perfect English. However some of their young staff could do with a little more training (less time on mobiles and chat amongst themselves, more awareness of customers etc - plus maybe a bit more English spoken by the team would help communications and engagement with international customers).

We went in July(not the ideal time to go to Gokarna) but still we have enjoyed a lot.
Booked a Dom for 4 of us and it was neat and clean and spacious.
Mr Ansari and his wife are very good hosts and they are managing the complete property themselves.
Food is great and the Cafe is also mindblowing with nice view.
They also have AC cottages.
Property has separate common washrooms as well and they have a small cliff to climb which gives a great view of city.
500m from Kudle beach and 3km from OM beach (by road).
Awesome place to stay with Wifi.

We never thought what supposed to be a sweet memory turned out to be a horrible experience.

Just hours before checkin to coconut tree resort Gokarna got a cancel booking message from this place.

The manager lady and a guy who were in charge of the resort had some terrible behavior. They don't know how to talk to a customer and can loose their temper and Start to threaten and go up to saying do the payment and get lost.

Honestly never met such rude two faced staff (the lady and the guy)

Rooms have some horrible mattress. The bed heats up like a furnace and no human can sleep on these beds. We struggled a lot to catch some sleep, to add it the rooms are not ventilated properly. The heat builds up over the day and you will feel trapped inside a oven. The fans just don't work, the ceiling fans runs very slow and when we complained the arrogant resort manager says voltage is single phase and that's the max the fan runs. We decided to open windows to cool down the room but we're swamped with mosquitos bites.

Ventilation in the bathroom doesn't work which leaves the bathroom Misty and smelly after using loo.
if you are not majorly bothered about the cleanliness of the room and want a cheap untidy place to lay down you can choose this resort.

The boys who work at the resort, the server the cook were all nice people.
The manager lady and a guy who were in charge of the resort had some terrible behavior and was giving lame excuses. They doesn't know what is customer service.

Food is too expensive not worth of what you pay, over rated resort

You better have a back up plan otherwise be brave enough to deal with thug like arrogance people.

Pros:
1. The owners (Ansari and Yasmin) are extremely hospitable and courteous. They attend to guests personally and make them feel at home :) Service is excellent. Room service is also available.
2. The rooms are small and quite cosy and have all the necessary amenities (Water, Soap, Shampoo, Mirror, Towels, Locker Facility, Electric Air Cooler).
3. There is lots of cool breeze all around, and the weather is very pleasant early in the morning, and in the evening and night (even in May). It is quiet all around.
4. It is only a 5 minute walk to Kudle beach, and a 10 minute walk to town and the Main beach. It is close to the sunset point also.
5. The food is excellent, and doesn't take too long to prepare though it is prepared on the spot. There is a wide variety of options for vegetarians and non vegetarians.
6. Stay is inexpensive and totally worth the price. It includes breakfast also.
7. There is a nice sit-out area at the entrance which is covered by coconut trees, and very nice to be at in the night. The trees have lights on them which are illuminated at night and make for a great surrounding.
8. There are hammocks here and there to just laze around.
9. There are clothes lines outside if you want to wash and dry clothes.
10. There are nice-looking fancy cottages under construction and will be ready soon. The property is itself quite new.
11. There is free parking and WiFi.

Cons:
1. The rooms don't have A/C though electric air cooling is present. It tends to get slightly stuffy and humid inside the rooms because they don't have much ventilation. The bathrooms also don't have ventilation.
However during the day, keeping the window and door open helps. At night you have to manage.
2. The weather is hot in the day, so come prepared!

The price quality is completely wrong here! Their rooms are very, very basic: small rooms with smelly, noisy (fan!) bathrooms. We paid 5000 rupees per night!
After two nights we moved to another place in the same area, Hari Om. Their rooms are far better and we pay less than half!
Coconut Tree Resort is on booking.com, while many other places are not. booking.com has advantages, but for Gokarna I would book directly.

Really really awesome service
It is literally the best place you can stay at in Gokarna,
Well to be honest it was not just an hotelling experience for me it was rather and awesome connection experience
Actually went there on a solo ride.
The staff there was so friendly so supportive that they did not help me just inside the hotel but also helped me outside of the hotel too
Especially Yusuf Bhai, he was like my best go-to pal during my while gokarna trip,
My trip was of just a day but their hospitality made sure i stayed there for 4 complete days, yes i stayed there for 4 days instead of just one because i felt so comfortable with their outstanding hospitality!!
Hats off to Yusuf bhai 🤟

We had reserved our stay at Coconut Tree Resort for two nights in January (25th-26th) through Booking.com (payment at check-out, credit card details visible on my account page). On 23rd, I get a call from the hotel asking for my confirmation and if indeed we're coming on our allocated dates. I confirm and say yes, no change in our plans. They ask for an estimated time of arrival to which I reply around 11.30 am, maybe an hour later (normal check-in time is 12 pm)

On 25th, we drive from Murudushwar and reach the resort at around 1.20 pm (just 80 mins after the usual 12 pm check-in time). To our great shock, the resort owner tells me "We were trying to call you, you didn't pick up, so we cancelled your booking and gave your rooms to someone else and now we're sold out!" I checked my phone and there were around 3-4 calls from the resort, which I genuinely didn't see on my phone as I was driving and my phone was at the back. I didn't expect any call from the resort anyway since I had already confirmed my arrival on Thursday!!

I was understandably enraged because: 1. this has never ever happened before. 2. I had confirmed just 2 days before and it's common sense that if I'm cancelling, I cancel through Booking.com and incur cancellation charges (applicable 48 hours before arrival). I just won't not show up.

The resort owners said that they have had no-show cases before, so the Thursday confirmation call was of no use. Why did you call me on Thursday then? And you assumed I'm not coming since I was an hour late and could not pick your calls, so you cancelled my booking and allotted my rooms to someone else? No message or anything was sent either as "that would mean encroaching on privacy", according to them, but cancelling bookings is totally fine and they're well within their rights to cancel and do as they please! Such hypocrisy! He also said I had not mentioned my credit card details, so he had to cancel, when clearly, my credit card details were furnished on Booking.com. I have used Booking.com for the last 6 years for all my accommodation bookings, details are saved there! Nonsense.

I was shocked! The guy just kept on saying and doing what he pleased. What do I do now? Imagine arriving with a family of four, high on expectations for a good vacation only to find out that your room bookings are cancelled, based on some stupid self-created rules by the resort management! Atrocious behaviour. The guy refused to reason with me and kept harping on the fact that I didn't pick up my phone and we kept going on in circles.

Anyway, since there was no point arguing again and again, I asked for a solution and he helped connect with Hotel Om International and blocked two rooms for us there. This turned out to a blessing in disguise, as we had a great stay there (though not a resort-type feel, but never mind).

Who knows what else we might had suffered or encountered at this great Coconut Tree Resort based on the owner's whims and fancies. In hindsight, good we didn't stay there.

Note to management: Please trust your customer to arrive (those who have confirmed two days before arrival) and not cancel rooms based on one-off past experiences you might have had. Open your eyes and do not torture people like this. You're in the hospitality business, need not remind you of that.

My lovely wife and I spent two nights at this hotel when visiting Gokarna. We had originally planned to stay for four nights but it was so bad that we decided to check out early.

Maybe it's just me but when I see the words resort & deluxe and a price tag of over ₹3,000 a night I expect a certain level of quality. Unfortunately this place failed to deliver on all counts.

First impressions weren't great. The whole place looks untidy and unfinished. It is very much a work in progress so looks a bit like a building site. A lot of attention is needed if it is ever going to look and feel like a resort.

Things got worse when we reached our room. It was small, scruffy and very basic. There were none of the little extras you normally get in this price range - no bottled water, no tea & coffee making facilities, no fridge. Moreover, the sheets & towels were covered in nasty stains and we soon discovered there was no hot water. We actually had to order a bucket of hot water so we could wash. To top things off, it turned out that no food was available so we ended up ordering a Swiggy. Very annoying.

The owners eventually moved us to a nicer room at 7pm on the second evening but by then it was too late as we had decided to leave. They even waived the cost of our stay but we still left feeling unhappy as our plans had been ruined.

I feel bad writing this review as the owners are nice people. The trouble is that they just seem out of their depth and are struggling to make their vision a reality. I hope they succeed one day but for now I can only recommend staying elsewhere.
