Highlights: Lovely property, great staff, awesome food, steps from a beautiful beach that has not been discovered by the throngs yet, music all day that sets the ambience, good massage, came away thoroughly relaxed and rejuvenated. Highly recommended! Ku Paradise is not only a restaurant,...but a boutique hotel as well, with 2 rooms. I stayed here with 3 of my girlfriends between Dec 13-16. What we wanted from our vacation, was a place where we could relax, hit the beach, eat good food and not be bothered by throngs of grope-y men. Ku was the perfect answer for that, and we are so glad that we found this place. Here's the lowdown... Located in Morjim, it’s about an hour and a half's drive from the airport. I did the pre-paid taxi, though Ku can also arrange a taxi for you (at the same rate as the pre-paid guy charged – Rs. 1500). This is something that is worth doing, as Ku is a little hard to find. Once I got there, the place took my breath away. It is totally serene and beautiful, with a lovely energy. The koi fish pond that runs between the cottages lends to the beautiful energy. You feel like you have all the modern amenities while living quite in the middle of a tropical forest. There is a slight mind set change that you might need to make, if you are not quite used to being one with nature – i.e., you might see a bug or two here or there, but remember that the structures are open to nature, so this is quite natural. There are two cottages that are the two guest rooms. We had the one on the left. The Ku folks brought in 2 extra beds, to accommodate us 4 girls, and still we had plenty of room to prance around, and get dressed etc. In the middle of the room was a table with cushions around it and we made good use of it for mid-night gossip sessions. We also made good use of the lounge, which is above the kitchen and has a wonderful view of the fields. You can hear the roar of the waves from here. Breakfast is served when you are ready for it, and consists of fresh fruit and eggs cooked to order. I had the best papaya here, that I've had in a while. One of our favorite days during the vacation was when we started at the lounge with breakfast, hung around till lunch was served and then continued lazing about till evening tea, when we finally got our act together and headed to the beach to watch the sun set over the Arabian sea! At Ku it is easy to sit around with good friends for hours sipping on Praveen's chai, eating food and just catching up. Praveen, the chef/care-taker, was just such a nice guy. For lunch, we had the fish thali (VERY reasonably priced at Rs. 300), and it was quite excellent - kokam curry, prawns, mussels, fried fish, veggies and rice. One of the perks of staying at Ku, versus a Hotel, is that Ku is more home-y, with Praveen at your service, for whatever you need. On my last day there, I bought an avocado from a road-side vendor, and Praveen let me share his kitchen to fix some guacamole. I would be remiss to not mention that Ku is owned by Sula Wine, hence they also have an excellent selection of wines, if that is your thing. Rajeev, the owner was at Ku, while we were there, and he was quite the gracious host as well. Anoushka, the manager of Ku was also quite lovely and helpful - she always had the latest on what was going on in the village and helped us navigate the Morjim scene. She helped us rent bikes while we were there, so that we could go around Goa. On our last day there, Anoushka arranged for us to have massages. The property has a massage room. And it was a pretty good deep-tissue. The other three girls also enjoyed their massages. Lastly, Ku is home to Jack the Admiral, who is an adorable dog. His company and affection made Ku even more enjoyable. Other things we did around Ku that we enjoyed: 1) Hit the beach where the Bora Bora Restaurant is - this was absolutely delightful, as during sunset there were maybe 15-20 people on the beach. There’s also kite surfing on this beach. Enjoyed seafood, freshly squeezed orange juice, music and massage on the beach. The beach also has 1-2 shops from where you can buy sarongs. 2) Bora Bora - a russian-ish restaurant/shack open 24/7. It has beds for seating. Great for midnight jaunts and crepes. 3) Soma resort - the resort has a lovely seaside restaurant. Great ambience and garlic butter prawns. 4) Marbela resort - while I did not go here, my friends did. Beautiful resort with luxury tents and great parties. I went for an early morning swim on the beach in front of Marbela - it was like being in Paradise. 5) La Plage - again did not sample this, but hear great things about the food. Things that can be improved: 1) More lighting especially near the mirror in the guest room, so that girls can be girls. 2) More lighting in the bathroom - again, so it’s easier to do makeup. 3) Need new linen. Electric blankets would be really nice, as it was quite chilly at night. 4) A rack for hanging clothes would be a welcome addition. 5) Wifi! While I really did not have time or the inclination to do work, for longer stays, wifi would be nice. Anoushka has a Tata Photon thingy though, and I did borrow that from her once. Also the Ku folks can pop you over to Marbela, if you need internet. 6) Booking process can be made easy – the website should have the capability to take reservations and payment.More

finally, a place in India away from the 'madding crowds' Menu options are simple: veg or non-veg thali, reservations only as they don't have a big kitchen. I had a dinner party of 12 and they coped no problem - just call before lunch so...they can make it to the market in time! "Probably the most charming place to take a date on the Morjim-Ashwen stretch of coastfront'. you're sitting on the first floor of a bamboo hut, cross-legged style on cushions, gazing out at the local fields with cows grazing etc you'll have to phone Drew on +91 7738 064 587 ok I guess now it's been reviewed, the place will be swamped with guests - but they deserve it and it's not for the typical Indy-beach bum, ie no flashiness, no loud trance music, no dodgy package tourists etcMore

Lured by the website we ventured to Ku. Upon arrival we found out the panasian quisine had moved for Thali's and reservation was compulsory. It was a good though pricey one, but it totally not matched our expectations. The " maitre d' " was wearing...basketball shorts and shirt. (he was a character, to say so. But that you are a character doesn't say you have it). The cook and helpers were " authentic" as the claim on the authenticity on the thali. Anything pretending to be as classy as this place shouldn't have pumping music. Nearly all other music would have done better. (classic indian matching the thali, Japanese matching the building, jazz, lounge?) Finally it turned out they even didn't do dessert anymore. All in all not matching the rooms they let @ 120,- euros a night...More

Ku has a magical quality about that transports to place with a temple like quality that stands still in time to make you feel tranquil and in touch with yourself. The Asian cuisine with its subtle spices won't overpower your senses and a delicately cooked...to perfection. I think they only open for dinner for large groups and parties.The rooms are a private haven and like nothing I've seen in India. It's not just a restaurant but a boutique hotel with two unique rooms. They are minutes walk from the beach and perfect if you're into a small place to yourself. If you want to party Club Fresh and La Plage are 5 minutes walk away. They have some pictures on their website and I had one of the most amazing ...if strenuous Thai massages of my life. Marie the owner and her staff make you feel at home from the minute you walk in till you leave and even after as memories of the place linger on...More

Ku is a wooden paradisiac asiatic place. You'ill never find a place like this nowhere. Just one door, no windows and paddy field all around The food is great and original. You can eat a beautifull Tom Yum soup and after going for a Mecchoui...of lamb, or Ceviche or a fresh and organic Salade de Ku or a Chao tom surgarcane with prawns. I love it. This year they made a web site thepictures can show how great is that place. enjoy !More
