“Very unique”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2011

Lovely, large tents, with super comfortable beds! Great if you're looking for something a bit different very close to the beach.

Room Tip: Try Sea view and Poppa Joes restaurants nearby

We stayed at Amarya Shamiyana for one wonderful day - everyone was very nice and helpful. The rooms are nice and unique, the restaurant (La Plaqe), serves great food and it is located ideally along a very clean beach. The staff was always around with a smile - they helped us arrange a bike to move around Goa, and even helped with another reservation when there was no room for the next day. The beach was nice and romantic in the moonlight - remembering the time makes me want to go back again - definitely recommended for a memorable stay!

We stayed two nights at the Amarya Shamiyana and enjoyed very much the beautiful beach, the nice tents and the great hospitality of the staff, in particular the kindness of the owner Mathieu. The french restaurant "La Plage" just nearby (one has to go through the restaurant in order to reach the beach) was just excellent: nice atmosphere, fine menu and very reasonable prices. The tents are nice and spacious, pleasantly decorated but somehow simple (concrete floor, toilet behind a screen). The tents are close to each other and there is little space around. Nice hotel, but a bit pricey.

We've travelled extensively staying in all kinds of accommodation except tents - I don't do camping ....... But this was MY kind of canvas! More Marquee than tent! Huge, airy, great bathroom facilities, lovely big towels, soft bed, aircon, fans, many choices of seating inside and outside. Loved it!
Yes, a bit Ikea cheesy (we had the pink tent) but that's part of the charm. The tents are well sited for privacy each with private terrace.
Breakfast was good, dinner ordered from La Plage didn't quite work as my husband had finished his main course before mine arrived but the restaurant's fault, not Amarya.
Would definitely stay again and encourage others to try it.
Short sandy walk through La Plage restaurant to beach. Turn right at beach if you like quieter area and excellent beach shack 'Antonio's Paradis'

We stayed for a few nights at Amarya Shamiyana in December and LOVED it! The tents were absolutely beautiful with modern amenities. The staff were extremely professional and courteous. Breakfast was delicious and we loved the restaurant next door, La Plage. We had a security guard outside of our tent at night when we were at dinner. Just steps from the beach and the restaurant La Plage, and just up the road from a yoga studio and another great French restaurant, Amarya Shamiyana was our oasis during our time in India. I highly recommend!

Just came back from 5 wonderful nights staying at the Amarya Shamiyana . It is the best place to stay in Goa . Mathieu and his crew don't know what to do to make you feel comfortable. The location is perfect , the beach is clean and almost quiet and the best restaurant in Goa La Plage 1 minute away just a dream ....
