I stayed at Zuri Goa in March 2010. lovely place with good gardens and landscape. We got a beach facing room and we were very happy to see the sunset.

SPA.
The SPA treatments are out of this world.
The staff at SPA were very helpful and did very good treatment for 5 days.
The SPA Doctor helped us a lot to choose the right treatment as per our body.

Waterfall Coffee shop.
The Staff was amazing and gave us a very good service.
The quality of food was amazing and we liked it very much.

Reception.
The staff at the reception was very helpful during check in & check out.

Pool.
Has a very big and beautiful pool. but we did not use it.


Negative.

There is a lot of noise at times during night time from the bar area.


We will definately come back again and also recommend our friends to visit this hotel.

Thank you for your compliments with regards to the Property, Swimming pool, the kids area and the Casino.

With regards to the Beach being unclean with stray animals roaming, we would like to clarify that there is a certain point on the beach which is maintained by the Resort as we own it, thereafter all the land leading to the water is open to public, for which the Resort has no controll over.

With regards to the cricket match it was an interaction game that was held for the staff for which all the guest were informed and invited to watch and take part.

We hope to see you soon with any one of our Zuri properities and have a great experience as our “Welcome Back “ guest.

With Goa increasingly catching up with other great holiday destinations around the world, hotels are mushrooming everywhere. Though there are different types of hotels that cater to all kinds of tourists, the star hotels nonetheless are ideal to make your stay in Goa an experience to treasure. This hotel in Goa is considered to be one of the best 5 Star Hotels in Goa. Away from the din and bustle of the city; this luxurious villa style resort is located at a beautiful location. Set amidst the palm tree dotted locale, the hotel is ideal for the honeymooning couple.

There are the rooms are beautifully done up. The balcony attached with every room makes for viewing sunrise or sunset from the comfort of your room. Though all the room types are equally well suited, it is advisable for the newly weds to hire a cottage. Some of the room facilities are really good

for some reason they had trouble with the idea of 24 hour service. A supposed 5 star hotel without espresso. They tried to give a room which was not anything close to 5 star standards, when we threatened to leave, they produced a slightly better one, which still had broken light fixtures, broken shower head, detached from ceiling, shower door was broken, water all over floor, patio door was broken, did not have any kind of weather stripping so mosquitos came in at will.

Anyway, these guys should clean up their act. If you try to claim you are a 5 star hotel, and charge local 5 star prices...should get what you agree to pay for.

We were told, 'it's not always that way in India'. For sure. However, the Taj is a much safer bet, I don't think the Rad is worth a second look

We opted to spend four days including the new year here and were disappointed. The place and the property, and the adjoining beach are beautiful; but one would expect quite a lot more after paying more than 5-star prices (even after allowing for Goa-New-Year premiums). In fact, one would expect more from any hotel, whatever the price.
Check-in was smooth and courtesies ended abruptly as we entered the restaurant for lunch. We were bluntly told that we were late and no rotis. They eventually did serve, but the tone of the voice was definitely not welcoming. During all our restaurant visits, we rarely felt like welcome -- breakfast, lunch or dinner. It always took forever to get a few ice-cubes or to clear our plates. Food was yummy though. Excellent Indian food, every meal we had there.
All-in-all, it did not come across as a professional, well-run place. Housekeeping always seemed to miss something or other. Room was large but the bed was uncomfortably stiff. Staff was clueless, though enthusiastic at times. The kids' activity room was deep in the administrative area but our son was very well attended to and had great time there. The swimming pools were large and nice but could have been cleaner.
The real disaster was the new year party/ gala dinner. The DJ was bad, and so were the live singers. It looked like some sophomores have been brought to act in. Food was great but the buffet was laid quite far away from the tables.
