We had a wonderful time staying at the secret garden. Monica and Nazir could not have done anymore to ensure our stay was just to our liking. Wonderful food, lots of choice at breakfast, freshly made and Nazir's curries are legendary! They helped us with sight seeing the most amazing places, organised transport and helped with language. The beach is... More

A typical beach cottage set among shrubs and palm trees with fan and a\c.While it is some distance from Palolem or Patnam Beach they can easily be reached by quick and inexpensive tuk tuk rides. It is run by an extremely friendly ,welcoming and helpful couple. Breakfast and great coffee are included in the most reasonable price.

Very bad location - over 20 minutes away from center of Palolem beach (dark/sketchy walk at night). Owner didn't want to give me money back and overcharged me for Scooter rent. Really can't recommend.

Stayed here for 12 nights and found it to be a little oasis of tranquility- the perfect place to relax! I had never been to Goa or India before and was not sure what to expect, but I had a really lovely time in Patnem and staying at the Secret Garden was definitly one reason for this. As others have...

Stayed here in Feb 14 for 12 nights, partly private booking and partly with a group, and I have to say this was the most guest-friendly place I have ever stayed. Nazir and Monica make you feel like friends and nothing is too much trouble. I am not a traveller and never been anywhere like Goa, but Nazir & Monica... More

We loved it her! The hut, the people (of course especially Nazir and Monica), the yoga, the palm trees, the birds - everything here was what we hope to find! We have already booked our ticket for next season and will be back. The best, Mads and Lotte + two kids

I could not recommend Secret Garden highly enough. we had a beautiful 10 day stay here over Xmas/New Year 2013. at first we were disappointed about not being on the beach, but actually it turned out to be better, to step away from it into this peaceful retreat. & it feels like home. that is largely down to the lovely...

We came to Secret Garden directly from Copenhagen, and were slightly worried that our 3-year-old would have a culture shock arriving in India. This was not the case. He had a blast from day one and because the Secret Garden has a fence and gate we (his parents) could relax and let him run around. From the very first correspondence,... More
