“Be amazed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Taking a taxi in the black of the night up a narrow pot hole ridden lane you could be forgiven for thinking you are in the wrong place and the taxi driver is having you over. Stay with it for another 10 minutes and an oasis opens in front of your eyes......

Should we say more or leave the rest as a surprise?

Walking in to the hotel in a slightly dumb founded fashion the vista that opened up was of a stunning hotel with a magnificent pool taking centre stage in the superb architecture of the rooms surrounding the pool and dinning area. Full of interesting curiosities,local and from further afield, the rooms looked sumptuous without being pretentious.

We were shown to our table and immediately introduced to the Aneel the hotel owner and chef. We asked him to provide us with a feast for four - wow we certainly got that. Lots of interesting dishes that we would not have ordered but really enjoyed. Rounded off with a superb chocolate delight made for one of the best meals we had in India and certainly putting Indian cuisine in the higher echelons of cookery.

Strongly advise a visit but don't tell too many people - we may have a problem getting a table in future

Spent 4 nights here and did not want to leave. Tranquil and peaceful by day, lively and entertaining by night. Just what we wanted. Thoroughly enjoyed the owner's hospitality and magnificent cooking. Did not eat an ordinary meal while we were there.

The location is perfect - 10 minute walk to the beach, close to La Plage and other great restaurants while at the same time set back enough to remain tranquil and quiet.

The staff made you feel like the hotel was an extension of your home and the full length lap pool was an added bonus to burn off the calories we were gaining with the exceptional food. We Will definitely be back.

Magic place, Aneel made sure that this was to become a weekend to remember...the place is cosy and with character, food unbelievable and Aneel...what a gem. He cooked, chatted us up and even djed for us...we left feeling we were leaving home in Goa...Don't miss this place, you will be truly looked after.

Room Tip: second floor...sea view!

This was our fifth visit to Sur La Mer. For me it's the perfect place to relax, enjoy my holidays and completely unwind, away from my hectic work schedule. Our son had fun in the swimming pool with me and my wife. We will be coming soon again as this is the perfect resort for us.The service is prompt and the food is outstanding. The beach is a short walk from the resort .The owner who is also an acclaimed chef delighted us with delicious meals through out our stay . We recommend Sur La Mer to anyone looking for quiet, exclusive and relaxing vacation With a personalised service.This is not a typical and a commercial tourist resort but for those looking for a quiet and a relaxed holiday in this beautiful place called GOA .

Room Tip: For those looking for holiday besides the pool, ask for ground floor rooms.

Sur La Mer is Ashvem's well kept secret (literally). An absolutely stunning resort with just 12 rooms makes it exclusive and the tastefully done room adorned with antique furniture add to the delight. It is a five star resort in every way! The warmth and hospitality of the staff and owner Aneel Verman's hospitality more than make up for the fact that Sur La Mer is not on the beach.

The food here is to die for! The wasabi prawns, pork chopps, chicken wings, prawn curry, garlic calamari are the best I have eaten in Goa! People actually fly especially to enjoy delectable meals prepared by Aneel himself.

I cannot wait to go back with my husband to enjoy the romance that oozes in the air at Sur La Mer!

Room Tip: Yoga facilities are nearby. Try asking for the Spa services. They are expected to have one up and ru...

Stayed at this wonderful hotel early April this year with family.
The location is perfect literally a 5 min walk to Ashvem beach which is a great beach.
As for Sur le mer itself the owner Aneel and his family make you feel at home and the staff are excellent. The whole place has a boutique feel and the food is outstanding you don't really need to eat anywhere else! I really think if you plan to stay in this area you won't find a Better place.
Aneel is a great cook too so you may get lucky and he will cook for you!
Must also mention our 3 year loved the pool and the whole place was safe clean and fun so perfect for us.
