We had recently stayed at this place for one night during our road trip along the Konkan coast and regretted for having spent only one night at this wonderfully well maintained place. This is indeed a hidden gem - the perfect peaceful hideout. And a special mention of Mr Dinesh, the Manager of the resort who not just upgraded us... More

Right on the beach. Clean and well maintained rooms. Restaurant was just fine. Staffs are cordial. Great view. Away from the highway - tranquil. Beach is not crowded- more like a private beach. Nothing can be more relaxing than spending few days in this cottage. Highly recommended.

A beautiful setting--a perfect clean beach under coconut palms! If you want to wisely intersperse your India trip with some "chill" time, this is a place you'll especially appreciate! Food is fantastic. The service by all staff is friendly, professional, and helpful; all seem anxious to please in a most natural, sincere, unobsequious way. In other words, there's no sense... More

As this was a new resort, we did not know what to expect. Having stayed for three days, we cannot recommend it too highly. Our cottage, with its open-air bathroom, was virtually on the empty, clean beach with safe swimming; the food was excellent as were the prices; and the staff were without exception delightful. A highlight of our trip.

We spent 3 nice days in a small villa located directly on the beach. The villa is decorated with taste and you do not feel like being in an hotel. The place is very nice, the beach is clean and there is a large swimming pool that we were almost the only ones to use. The food is delicious and... More

The resort has excellent access to the beach and provides great rooms and service all round. Food is excellent, especially if you order the coastal food. Staff is very helpful and this is a place you would definitely like to go back to.
