Stayed here for 3 nights. a decent and good place to stay. Very unique place and excellent service by the staff. They need to add some more luxury factor to the deluxe tents. The resort does not provide much activities for the guest. They need to work on that part. At last, the food options in the restaurant menu is... More

Outstanding from start to finish. We hugely enjoyed out 4 night stay at Amariya Shamiyana, and can't wait to go back! The tents are wildly luxurious, particularly compared to our previous experiences of accommodation in Goa. The beachfront location is ideal, and close to several great restaurants. Particularly recommend La Plage, which is just a 15 metre stroll away, and... More

This was our first trip to Goa and Amarya Shamiyana was recommended by a friend who lives in Mumbai. We do business in India and took a couple days break during Holi. This was just what we needed. Walking distance from the beach, these tents are more than tents, they are air conditioned suites with full shower, sink and toilet,... More

I guess you could call it a tent (the walls are canvas), but the spaciousness, air conditioning, plumbing, and comfortable bed are at least as inviting as any hotel room. And what's more, the four tents of Amarya Shamiyana are set just about 100 yards back from Ashvem Beach. Breakfast under the palms, and then a 3-minute walk to the... More

The Amarya Shamiya hotel is the reason why I survived my stressful meetings in Goa because every time I enter the room I feel very relaxed ad at ease. The location of its tent rooms are to look forward to everyday when I wake up because I would really feel like being on vacation even if I’m not. The sound... More

For my first time in India I wanted to spend on the accommodation since I wasn't very familiar with the place and my mentality is that if I'm not familiar with something I have to be compromised in some other way. I wanted to stay in a comfortable hotel that I was sure to want to go home to after... More

This was our first stop on our recent visit to India. We were pretty tired and stressed after a long trip from the UK and the insanity of Mumbai airport, but all of that was forgotten within a minute of arriving at Amarya Shamiyana! The room/tent was 5 star quality, very comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful and the beach... More

So, you are thinking about staying in Goa for a few days? Relax, sit at the beach, maybe some sightseeing? Tell you what: Amarya Shamiyana is the place you want to go. However, to really appreciate it, you should prepare yourself: First, book your stay at the end of your trip. Plan for no less than three days. Second, plan... More
