“The Best Beach Resort in Konkan”
Reviewed 1 June 2012

Had read some very good reviews about this resort.

Incidentally i had visited this resort as a kid several years back while it was being operated by MTDC. Had some fond memories then, though it was not so well maintained in those days.

The most beautiful part of this resort is that the moment you step out of the resort backyard, you can dig in your feet in the sand. And if it is high tide, the water splashes right in your face.

Rooms
The rooms are nice and well maintained. We were allotted a room but 'Bunk Bed' (Normal Bed on the ground and another bunk bed elevated). And this was not just a kids bunk bed, but an adult one indeed. Simply awesome. More than my 4 year old daughter it was me who was super excited. There are it seem only 2-3 rooms of this type i understand.

Food
Amazing food. Their package is inclusive of Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. So if you skip any, your bad.

Recreation
Hamocks, imported geared cycles on hire. They charge about inr.75 for an hour.
Small cycles for kids also available.

Another key attraction are the ducks that roam about in this resort. There were about 5-6 of them and they all over the place. On of the ducks has just hatched a chick one week before we visited and it was so fun watching them.

Go on enjoy this place.

Room Tip: Try rooms with Bunk bed if you are in a group of 4-5

The approach by road is quite a test. But having overcome this, the place is great. Single rooms have kind of cute kiddies bunk beds. The bathrooms are a bit small, which is a shame considering one comes in from the beach and wants something roomier.

The resort has solar water heaters. And they do the job very well. On the rooms.. they do have a nice sit out. But neither at the sit out nor inside the room, are there sufficient plugs to recharge your phone or any gadget. The resort is inconsistent in that the 2 bedroom cottages have LCD TV’s and some of the 1 bedroom cottages have quaint 18” CRT TV’s.

The food is good. Explain to the waiter what you need, and what allergies you have everytime you order, and food is made with or without the ingredient asked for. This is good and prompt. Sea food is good, as is the chicken. The vegetarian is a tad inconsistent, but largely good. The lack of multiple dessert options is a definite point for improvement.

At the resort you can hire bicycles to ride on the beach or around the town.

Among the trees above, high above, is a colony of bats, and they are quite a sight at dawn and dusk. In the early evening they make sorties in the resort area, but in the 4 evenings we were there, no one was upset because of them. It is possible that the area in/ around the resort is mosquito, insect free owing to these bat sorties… but that’s just a thought.

We booked thru Nivalink and after hassle free booking we reached the resort on Saturday 12.30PM. At the resort, it was prompt check in - very polite staff. We were escorted to our cottage for 4 which was kept ready. The resort itself had a nice charm to it - good layout with swans / ducks roaming around making quacking noise! Inside the cottage, we had 2 LCD TVs, small fridge, split AC in the hall / bed room 1 and window AC in the bed room 2. The beds were comfortable and clean. Bathroom was clean and modern (much cleaner than I had expected). The bed room 2 was not as clean as the outside room. It had traces of mold on the walls and the cupboard smelt strongly of varnish or some chemical. Hunger for food and anticipation of beach fun got us out of the cottage. Lunch was ordinary though with good spread. It was spicy for my taste - too much masala. Dinner that night and breakfast next day morning were wonderful - tasty with good options. Beach was clean and empty - just few families / couples so we good good privacy and loads of empty space to play and have fun. Comparing to Kashid, that was our first choice, I can happily say that Murud was a good decision. We passed thru Kashid on our way back and it looked as crowded as Juhu beach - glad I did not get booking over there!

while searching for hotels n resorts which has its own side to beach ...one is left with very few options in murud..since most of other resorts are just with sea view, not beach resorts ...
1. Helpful and prompt service
2. kids friendly play area
3. bit over priced cottages but negotiable if one in travelling on weekdays.(5k for connecting room cottages )
4. near to main market where one can enjoy local food( anand is gr8 ) and few rides
5. food can be better at restaurant.

7. one can get cycles on rent and explore the market and enjoy


Sandpiper had a gr8 view and cheaper prices but the pool and height of play area was bit risky for young kids. ideal for couples..but its bit isolated.



U.S.P : convenience since its very near sea beach and American breakfast is a must try :)

I reached Murud on a Sunny Afternoon of December 2011, after Travelling 6 Hours from Pune.

Was looking out for Speciality Lodging and Golden Swan MTDC really surprised me. I dint think that a MTDC resort would be so clean and cosy.

Here is my take.

1. Its a bit overpriced. But considering that Murud has none that parallels this resorts location and cleanliness, You wont mind the price.

2. As pointed out, the Buffet is not as tasty as it is spread out to be.

3. The Staff is cordial.

4. The rooms are well maintained and most importantly clean. Really nice cottages.

5. Its bang on the beach and that's the biggest thing you could ask for.

I would say, Overall Golden Swan is a choice you cannot go wrong with. Only one rue, the food could have gotten better.
