“Relaxation paradise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2012

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights after a 3 week business trip in Mumbai where we had lived from 2007-2009. It was pure relaxation and one to one service. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly without being too over attentive which can grate with us. One of the staff even went out and bought us 10 packs of the peanuts which we loved so much with our cocktails. The food was cooked especially for us and as we prefer real goan food to tourist goan food. Nothing was too much trouble and we will be back.

Room Tip: We asked for a room with pedestal bed as opposed to 4 poster because bigger and not so far from the...

What an experience! Superb warm service, beautiful unique rooms and to die for ayurvedic massages! The prefect get-a-way.
The new management having taken over in Jan 2011 with Lubna Adam as executive director, the hotel has upgraded its amenities to plush while still keeping the beauty and essence of the place. Way to go! Cant wait to visit for a longer period again.

Room Tip: I stayed in the Earth room. Spacious with a little sit out balcony.

Great hospitality. The rooms are exquisite. Its a close bind to the nature. The staff were very courteous and ready to help us out at all times. The owner, well a great chap to have a conversation with, and his token of appreciation were some good fine Cuban cigars..... From check in to the last day, the staff kept a good rapport with us. A completely different Goan getaway, for people who want to relax and enjoy the nature.

My self and a friend were travelling in Goa, only a short trip.
We had seen in a magazine back in England, an article on fabulous hotels in India.
We decided to go there for the the day and then supper only.

We spent the day lounging in the spa pool, having been shown around by Hari and Claudia.
Supper was delicious, Italian mozza rella basil olive oil not quite what we were expecting.

Then, as we had a driver waiting for us we decided to leave. The owners invited us to stay and have drinks and then be their guests.

The room was stunning the bed was huge and the party was long.

We had breakfast and left after a very magical evening with the owners.

Just thought I would say........

Supper was suprisingl
