I went with my mother and brother and had an amazing time. It's the perfect place to stay in Goa. Giles and his fantastic team make you feel like you're at your home from home, but a very luxurious home! The villas are beautiful and we all felt incredibly relaxed all the time. The food was delicious and Suhas did... More

I have been meaning to write this review for a while but hadn't the right words to describe my delight. Our stay at Coco Shambhala was unplanned. We went without expectations and didn't want to leave. Giles is the owner, the hands-on host, the go-to guy, the guide and this is his baby. He is friends with his staff and... More

Giles has nailed it and in my opinion has the best property in Goa. It's not really a hotel, more like a beautiful luxury home. The grounds are amazing, the food fantastic and all the staff were incredible, helpful and were always smiling and friendly. Looking forward to my next visit!!

We were a bunch of 5 that visited Coco Shambhala in August of 2013. I know that the review is a tad bit late but better late than never. The first thing you notice as you enter this piece of heaven is the greenery. Because of the awesome landscaping all the villas seemed private. The villas are beautifully designed and... More

We stayed in a group of 4 adults and a baby. Right from the offset everyone was so helpful with concerns I had bringing my 9 month old on her first holiday and really put my mind at ease. We stayed in Bharini which was beautiful. Location was excellent for us, our driver Baba was just brilliant and it really... More

These villas, set in a peaceful part of North Goa, are a lovely place to stay. They have been beautifully designed and are lovingly maintained. They each have a small plunge pool/jaccuzzi and there is a communal pool for the use of the 4 villas. But what makes them so special is the service provided by the staff. You have... More

Do you like being pampered? Spoiled rotten? And looked after even better than your mother ever did? If you've said yes so far, you'll also enjoy warm alluring tropical surroundings, beautiful luxury accommodation, and the best food you've ever tasted. If you also add a driver and a car to take you anywhere you like in Goa. This is the... More

I booked the Coco Shambhala for one week stay in October for my husband's 40th birthday. We had exclusive hire of the resort and from the minute we arrived to our departure we were treated with impeccable service from Giles and his team. It is hard to find the words to describe the levels of hospitality at Coco Shambhala, it... More

Coco Shambhala...a gem in India in terms of service and offering a quality of relaxation that is matchless. The entire team at Coco Shambhala from the owner to the cleaners make you feel so welcome. They all always have a smile on their face. This place is a must visit for their quality of service.

One of the most friendly and helpful hosts you would come across! The property is great but what makes it better is the people who work tirelessly to make your experience memorable. I was at the property for 3 nights with a bunch of friends and we weren't for a minute disappointed with the choice of accommodation selected. Lindsay and... More
