We went with our old in-laws, and stayed in 2 sea-facing cottages. The cottages are spartan but sufficient for comfortable stay, clean and neat, but no amenities like TV, Coffee maker, Fridge, A/c etc. So best stay would be in winters so that you don't need a/c. There seemed to be newer cottages with a/c also. Thew view from the... More

A 10 hour drive from Bangalore, Turtle Bay is in the middle of Manipal and Gokarna. It is the perfect spot to put up if you wish to cover both places over a long weekend.

I was a part of an artist residency program which took place at turtle bay resort. Must say its a magical place with lovely staff. And of course, Arabian sea just few steps away. Many interesting places nearby,like five to six hundred years old Mogambica devi temple. Falguni Bhatt.

Stay at Turtlebay was the best part of my entire Konkan trip. Due to some mis-communication between travel agent and hotel, I didn't get sea facing rooms but Hotel manager ensured that he wins my heart with splendid service and offering best possible room with at least a view of sea. PROS 1. This place is away from all hustle... More

Do not be fooled by the photos of this hotel. Yes the location is amazing. But the hotel itself is not! We booked this hotel from the UK, paying over £50 per night, expecting a little luxury on our tour! There is no luxury to this hotel. It is grubby and unkempt. The bed was so small, I did not...
