I stood at the Tranquility Beach Resort at Malgund for only two nights, thanks God". Otherwise, perhaps I would have slept on the beach.We arrived late in evening, it was almost 9p.m. After a long drive we finally reached the place. Even if I didn't' ask for the Swiss tent, they first send us to this kind of tent. What to say, something horrible. Stinking. dirty bed, dirty bathroom with some cockroach running away when i turned on the light. Toilet not washed. Me and my friend expressed our deep disappointment, so the staff came back with some other key after 15 min. and showed us the other cottage, made of brick. At least no stinking walls.But: bed was Extremely Hard, with a specific unpleasant smell, with a joke of pillow,room with stains on the wall. The furniture consisted of a tv which was working, a rusty iron cupboard / who could put some cloth there inside? 2 rusty iron doors and that was all in the room.the Bathroom was DIRTY, toilet Dirty, so I started using the shower - pipe to clean a little that place and to scare away all kind of ugly insects. Because we arrived so late I asked the staff if they could offer us something to eat (we didn't eat anything on the long way from Mumbai, except some biscuits. Staff said there is nothing to eat at that hour, not even some snacks. they offered only coconut water from the coconuts growing in their garden. I tried to sleep but that bed was so hard as if the ma tress was made of wood, and all bones were paining us. At some moment in the night I went out on the backdoor on the veranda, to sleep here. As if I could much!
Well next morning , breakfast was some lilliputian portion of don't know what porridge/like food, tasty nothing to say, but not much. In the morning I could see the surroundings, well, the garden is indeed very very nice, full of coconut trees and birds, squirrels. Staff were watering garden , cleaning there, so I wondered why they don't show same care fore the rooms... Actually we were the only guests at that time, so would expect that they at least clean proper the room and provide some comfortable mattress and pillow. I went outside the garden to the beach,. Beach indeed is BEAUTIFUL! Soft clean sand, clean water, not at all crowded, only a handful persons from a nearby hotel were there.So I spent the whole morning on the beach, enjoying. In afternoon we returned to the cottage, of course didn't stay inside , but slept a little outside on the chair. Only in the veranda there is a table and 2 chairs, in the room no.Sound of nature in that nice garden is relaxing. Soon some staff came and asked us what we want for lunch. We were surprised, because we didn't expect them to offer lunch and dinner. But they serve. And the food is Very Tasty. That's another PLUS for them. In afternoon we visited nearby Ganapati Temple, and I have to say the beach there can not at all be compared with the beach in front of Tranquility resort. So the positive things of the place are> very nice and pleasant garden to relax, wonderful, lonely beach and very good food.But here the positive stops. Wen it comes to the cottages, I repeat, they are HORRIBLE and I don't recommend sleeping overnight there. Maybe only for one night stop if you don't find something better and you are on the way from Mumbai to Goa. And more, there was some ugly dog in the compound, starting barking at me, I don't like dogs around me, so got little scared. There shouldn't be a free dog around when guests are there.
When I left, I talked to the staff, and complaint about the bad quality of rooms comparing with the good environment. I don't know it that Mrs. Nishi, the owner, will take note of this opinion and make some minor investment to upgrade the cottages. If they would change that mattresses and bedsheets and do some proper cleaning, the place would be highly recommended. but only if they improve their cottages. It's a pity that having so good environment and food but are not able to provide food accommodation.
