We had a lovely 3-night stay at Deshadan. After a long-haul flight, this was a great way to start the holiday. Staff were very welcoming, our room clean and comfortable (although the mattress was very soft), and breakfast tasty (e.g. masala omlettes and fresh fruit).

I stayed last November/ December time and I so hope to return. The staff and facilities were excellent... Sunil the manager went out of his way to make sure everything went smoothly. Such a peaceful and relaxing place to stay whilst taking part in a yoga retreat just outside the hotel. As a female solo traveller it's important to feel... More

We recently spent a wonderful 10 days at this hotel. The staff were exceptional, friendly and helpful. We stayed in a 2 bedroom cottage, each room had en suite bathroom and there was a small communal seating area which was great for us to unwind at the end of the day. The rooms were spotless, fresh bed linen and towels... More

The staff were attentive and helpful, including the spa. The facilities were good and the pool lovely and clean. Special mention goes to the Restaurant, the staff and food excellent. The food was far superior than what was on offer at the beach. Would definitely recommend.

This is a great hotel for kids! It is well maintained with comfortable rooms. The pool is lovely and the staff were very helpful and did everything they could to help us. The hotel is well located, within minutes from the beach. Would very much recommend this hotel!
