Room with a view

Hi,

Can anyone recommend a little beach front guesthouse or hotel that has huts or rooms that have direct access to the beach without having to walk through the hotel reception or past the pool or restaurant etc...? It has been my all time wish to find somewhere like this...I am not worried about it being basic, in fact I would prefer something traditional/heritgage styled rather than glitzy as the location is my prime concern.

Any suggestions greatfully received...I will be travelling around Kerala and Goa for about 2 weeks so any coastal spot is fine.

Thanks

Hi,

You can always try Blue Corner on Benaulim beach - http://www.blue-corner-goa.com/gallery.html Great food there too. I think it's 1200/- a night. They are fab! Mind you I didn't stay there, but we were shown around and did have 2 excellent meals.

Patnem is the place!!

Have a look at Home Beachfront (I posted a review last April, visited again a few weeks ago and still as good). Goyam is great too - they have some lovely huts that front straight onto the beach. I also took a look at the huts at Papayas, also on Patnem Beach, a few weeks ago - very nice indeed and they have 2 that front directly onto the beach (very good restaurant there as well, not quite as good as the food at Home Beachfront, but a very close second!).

The beach is spotlessly clean there too - this season there are 2 beach guards employed by the 15 beachfront businesses. The guards keep the cattle off the beach - no cows means no cow pats means hardly any flies and much cleaner beach and sea too. The guards do not allow any beach sellers or the hideous child slavery highwire acts onto the beach - totally relaxing. Beach sweepers pick up the occasional little bit of rubbish that a very thoughtless and inconsiderate visitor has tossed aside.

Oh - I could go back there tomorrow if I didn;'t have to go to work!

Kerala is also good fun too - the backwaters are lovely there too. Easy to book a rice boat there on the hoof - there's no shortage so unless you're planning on being there at Xmas ....

Goangal, thanks for posting details of 'Elsewhere'. It looks fab and I'll certainly be making enquiries about prices and availability.
