Rooms are a little small in size but comfortable. Food is decent. You can opt for the breakfast package only. Karwar town has decent and VFM restaurants where you can grab lunch and dinner. There are no restaurants close to the hotel though.

Great view of the bay. Helpful staff. Few guests at this time of the year. Main access highway roads are under construction. Therefore exercise caution while driving in and out. Sterling staff and the local boatmen who took us on a boat to the islands were warm and helpful. Good Udupi restaurants a 5 min. drive away from the hotel....

One comes upon this resort / hotel before entering Karwar town, in fact before crossing the Kali river, if one is coming in from Goa. While the entrance is somewhat rough and steep presently, owing to the road widening works, once you enter the place, it's the calm and warm professionalism of the staff that one cannot but help take...

Though Emerald bay looks cut off from Karwar its worth the stretch of a meagre 6 kms. You pass through the bridge above the river Kali, can feast your eyes with the river merging into the sea. Starting from the entry of the resort the reception staff (Mr Mohan & Ms Vilma on shifts) were well mannered and courteous. With...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located next to the estuary where the Kali river meets the Arabian Sea, and with the Sahyadri mountains forming a backdrop, Emerald Bay is a full-service Sterling Holidays resort that offers some beautiful glimpses of an unspoilt, unexplored region of India. The backwaters of the Kali River add to the beauty of this place. Karwar is a great holiday destination due its close proximity to Goa. A combined holiday in our resorts - Villagio in Goa and Emerald Bay in Karwar, will work as a great way to spending long vacations with loved ones. ... more   less
