1. The Service - is what really stood out here. Nothing was too much trouble for Martin and his team and everyone was super friendly. They organised taxis for us, scooter rental, massages, reservations and gave us all the best things to do/see and places to eat, as well as the things to avoid. Really welcome when you want to get the best out of an area in a short time.
2. The Setting - if you want to avoid the over touristy areas of Goa then definitely stay in this area in the North. The hotel is set in a beautifully secluded area just back from the beach. Very relaxing.
3. The Facilities - wifi was good. A/C in the room worked just fine which you definitely need. Restaurant served excellent fresh food and snacks, as well as a lovely breakfast (although please ditch the sliced bread in favour of Indian bread). The cocktails were also excellent (mangojito!). The restaurant area itself looks out onto the Arabian Sea - excellent view with your morning coffee or for sundowners with a sea breeze to cool you down. The hotel has a little section of sunbeds set back from everything else and so again very peaceful. Beach waiter always on hand to help you move sunbed or grab you a beer.
Things to Improve/Note:
1. It is at the end of a long dirt track. This is why it is so peaceful but if you can't ride a scooter then you will need to get a taxi which is no problem as the hotel will easily organise this for you. But worth noting. In this area of Goa you can't really get anywhere by foot anyway.
2. Noise - you are in a tent. So you do here the birds in the morning, dogs barking and some music in the distance. Bring earplugs or perhaps it would be nice if the hotel provided a pair with the room...
3. Wear and tear - don't expect 'luxury'. The tents are quite worn in places and the room pretty basic. However, that is not to say it isn't lovely just that keep your expectations in check. Perhaps the hotel should think about investing in new tents? When charging western prices for the accommodation I wouldn't think the the tents could see another season without guests starting to feel short changed.
Conclusion: relaxing, peaceful stay in probably North Goa's best hotel. Perfect, secluded setting and friendly staff/service meant that we got just what we wanted out of this beach holiday.
