This place is nice especially if you are tired of the crowds and want to spend time alone with your family or as a couple. We had an amazing time here and we plan to visit the place again, it felt like we were in our own world for the two days spent in the area. Total peace and tranquility...

I have heard great reviews about Lazy Lagoon but overall was fairly disappointed with our one night stay there. Upon arrival we were greeted by the manager, Henry and other staff. Henry explained the activities available at Lazy Lagoon, tides and safe areas to swim. I had previously arranged a dhow trip for sundowners that evening and Henry let me...

We loved everything about Lazy Lagoon....................great secluded accommodation, cooling winds to ease the very hot sun, pure sandy beach (near main hotel building only), perfect for swimming and lovely beach to walk along. Food was good and the...

After a 2km boat trip (prepare to roll your trousers up and get your feet wet) you arrive on the beautiful white sand at the very tip of this long spit. Jordan the manager and the Doberman guard dogs met us with a refreshing drink. The dogs are very friendly by the way. Rooms are set along the sea side...

If you are looking for a peaceful getaway, away from the fuss of the city life, then lazy lagoon is the place for you. As the name says it all "Lazy Lagoon", it is truly a place to sit back and relax and just be lazy. I can also say it is quite ideal for couples who are looking to...

Great hotel ideal location in North Goa. Rooms a little tired but comfortable. Beautiful pool area very quiet & ideal for relaxing. Short Tuk Tuk ride to loads of bars restaurants for good food drinks & beach. Would definitely visit again in future.

This is a must visit Lodge. Your get-away starts with a 2 minute boat ride to the lagoon and voila - you are in paradise. Warm hospitality, white sand, simple light meals. And Jordan the manager is great at his quick over view of the lodge and private island. Do not forget on one of the evenings to do a...

We had a lovely stay at Lazy Lagoon. We were very lucky in the sense that only 2 other bungalows were occupied when we booked there, so we almost had a desert island experience. The staff were great and very attentive, we felt like we were staying with friends. The bungalows were even better than expected: very spacious, eco-friendly and...
