“Relaxing stay at a great resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

The resort is maintained very well and it met my expectations. We had a pool facing room on the ground floor - the sitout opened to the meandering pool; although we dint venture into the pool there since there were frogs, few leaves / twigs from the trees above. The main swimming pool with a large walkthrough waterfall was terrific and my daughter and had a great time there. The beauty of the pool was that it was 1.1 to 1.3 meters deep and we could easily stand in the pool - at all places. I dint know swimming and learnt a bit here!

The hotel service was good and all employees were very polite. After the initial hiccup in room service immediately after check-in, we had a good experience. The pool attendants and the breakfast service folks were very courteous, greeting us whenever we went and taking care of our requests. Check in/out was a breeze.

Since we went during mid Oct2012, the shacks had not opened it and tourist season was delayed this year. The beach was very, very quiet and at times we were a little scared to venture out. We spent our time at the beach near where the lifeguard was. There was a restaurant just outside the gates of Zuri – Pereira – that served very tasty food at economical prices. It was good dining option

I preferred the Mobor beach further down south (where I had stayed last time) compared to Varca beach. But it was a relaxing vacation (not the usual rush to see tourist spots) and the Zuri White sands was a perfect resort for the same.

Room Tip: Take the pool facing ground floor room.

Have travelled to 4 continents and have stayed in best resorts/hotels across the world; my 4th trip to Goa and I must say it has been the most memorable vacation so far. A beautiful resort, in lush green locales, very courteous staff, beautififul landscaped gardens, largest pool in goa, almost private white sands beach; overall a perfect resort. Stayed at Leela and Taj Vivanta Fort Aguada before- Zuri surpassed them all in terms of quality, courteousness of staff, attention to details, cleanliness, maintenance and everything that you want in a resort. Restaurant- our breakfast was included in the price- Awesome spread, continental-indian-european food, thanks to Govind and the team for taking good care of us. Went to the Zuri to celebrate our Anniversary- Zuri staff sent a complementary Chocolate Cake - dont know how they got those details about us? In short- we were floored. Rooms were beautiful- well equipped, rain shower was amazing. Went over 8 beaches in South and North Goa but Varca Beach was the best of all.Will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We chose a Superior Garden Room on a friends reccomendation and I know we made a good choice because...

As with most beach-side hotels in Goa, this property is also huge and well maintained. The lawns extensive and well manicured.

We landed at the hotel on the final day of the Kingfisher Calender Girl Hunt. Most of the staff was busy pandering to that team. The check-in was delayed because of that, and the person serving the welcome drinks couldn't see us thru the Kingfisher girls. After a brief search, he was located and we got our glasses of some sweet concoction.

The pool was off-limits on day one as they were conducting a photo-shoot there. We managed to hit the pool the next day with the expectation of going up to the swim-up bar and swigging a couple of beers. Unfortunately, they had chosen those days to paint that place, because of which we couldn't have the pleasure of sitting in the water and chilling. The pool design though is very nice. It has a waterfall and extends on both sides as a meandering pool.

I always believe the breakfast spread of any hotel really says a lot about the quality of the restaurants in the hotel. Most of the other hotels where I have stayed (within and out of Goa) the breakfast spread was stupendous. The variety of meats, cold cuts, sausages which is present at other places was sadly missing here. The only 'meat' available was in the form of chicken sausages. On inquiring, we were told that there are not many foreign national during this season and Indian guests don't like to see meats at the breakfast table (a very dubious claim, especially since it was made by the extremely rude chef preparing the omelettes)! However, the head chef there, Ms. Sunita, did oblige me on the last day by serving crisp fried bacon. Thanks for that Ms Sunita.

Keeping this experience in mind, we stepped into their Pan Asian restaurant, Sake prepared for the worst. And boy-oh-boy was that a pleasant surprise! The staff there were super courteous and helped us thru the menu. The teppanyaki chef was a pleasure to watch. The tenderloin dish that he served was perfectly cooked medium rare and the flaming desert was a party for the taste buds.

Tangerine, their bar, has good ambiance, but a limited collection of alcoholic beverages. If you are a smoker, then be prepared to be punished for the habit. There is an open balcony where smokers can sit and enjoy their drinks. The downside? Hot, humid and sticky Goa October weather. Within seconds of stepping on to the balcony my shirt was soaking wet. I asked the staff why they don't have fans? The look that I got in return was as if I had asked for some dangerous alien technology. That was the time I gave up and decided that there isn't going to be a repeat visit.

Room Tip: Opt for rooms on the the first floor (lobby level) as the sit-outs of the ones on the ground floor d...

Will definitely stay again but will be eating elsewhere. The price for the food and quality is too high.

Everything else from service to expectations was just perfect. The white beach was the cherry on top!
