The hut we were given was no more than a badly built shack, where walls did not meet the roof and let in Mosquitos, my garden shed is better made. The bathroom facilities were appaling, whenever we put the shower on it fused the electricity system in the whole hut. We were left in darkness of over 45 minutes befor... More

I landed at the Secret Garden purely by accident and it turned out my favorite guest house in all of India. Nazeer and Monica were such lovely hosts, sharp and witty and fun-loving too. Nazeer's many stories and anecdotes gave a much appreciated cultural context to my travels. He arranged several day trips for me (I'm usually not the type... More

What a little piece of paradise Secret Garden is. Warm welcome from host Naseer and Monica and a very easy relaxed feel. The huts are the perfect getaway in Goa, comfy beds, mosquito net and hot water shower and the little veranda perfect for chilling out. Loved the yoga and dance sessions and the short walk to the nearby beaches.... More

We absolutely loved our 11 night stay at the Secret Garden. The huts are basic but spacious with comfortable beds and hot water in the bathroom. There is a fan, a large mosquito net above the bed, and a small porch area with a hammock. Free wifi. It was a relaxing, peaceful stay and we slept brilliantly every night. Delicious... More

It's such a wonderful place! Tropical and beautiful, and the place is safe. Absolutely incredible hosts with the most adorable baby. Nazir (owner and host) cooks delicious food and his wife Monica is very nice and helpful. The huts are basic but that's all you need. You have incredible beaches near by with loads of small markets. We stayed there... More

Secret Garden was lovely. We had an extremely short stay. The huts have everything you need. Two beaches are walking distance. We preferred Patnem because it was very quiet. Yoga in the garden was fun. Great hosts!

Just came back from India & stayed in the Secret Garden near Patnem Beach. This is such a charming & ethnic place to stay, especially as we were made to feel so welcome by Nazir & Monica. They really helped us ease into our holiday & we were so relaxed. There were 15 of us in total & were all... More

We went to Goa with friends, 15 of us with our "kids" ranging from 18-25 year olds and we're a bunch of 50 somethingthings! What we found in Monica and Nazir and their family were the most wonderful hosts and if you stay you must ask Nazir to cook you a curry meal one evening, ... wow what a treat!... More

Just arrived home after a 10 day stay in patnem at the secret garden with a group of friends and family and I couldn't recommend the secret garden highly enough. Monica and Nazir are the warmest and most accommodating hosts you could ask for and you can tell how much effort they've put into creating a wonderful space that's really... More

So I arrived in Patnam to partake in a yoga teacher training course but had a few days till pass before heading there so booked with nazir at the secret garden resort via booking.com. I couldn't have asked for a friendlier couple running the place, very easy to talk to and ask advice about any local (or national) things to... More
